Barcelona 6-1 (6-5 agg.) Paris Saint-Germain

Unai Emery could only watch as Barcelona made UCL history. Luis Suarez and Lionel Messi scored markers sandwiched around a PSG own goal to move the hosts to within a goal of forcing extra time.

It looked over when Barcelona’s defense lost track of Edinson Cavani. Forget the how, here’s the result:

But it wasn’t over. No, not at all.

Part of it is due to foul play. After Neymar scored in the 88th minute, Luis Suarez dove to earn a penalty kick moments later. Neymar scored again to make it 5-5 on aggregate.

They still needed to overcome Cavani’s away goal, and did it. Holy cow. They did it. Sergi Roberto darted past the PSG back line to flick a ball behind Kevin Trapp, and Barcelona had a comeback unlike any other.

Celebrate, they would.

Borussia Dortmund 4-0 (4-1 agg.) Benfica

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang scored three and Christian Pulisic provided a goal and an assist as the Westfalenstadion saw its favored sons overcome a 1-0 first leg deficit.

Aubameyang completed his hat trick in the 85th minute.

On any other day, Pulisic would be the lead story here in America. Watch his assist and goal here.
