Spanish Commentators Have Multiple Audiogasms As Barcelona Complete Impossible Comeback

Much man hugging ensued.

The world is going nuts over Barcelona's 6-1 win in its UEFA Champions League quarter final against Paris St Germain, completing a seemingly impossible comeback -- and why not?

Barcelona were 4-0 down after the first leg, and NOBODY comes back from that. Well, almost nobody. No team in club football -- and quite possibly no team in the history of club football -- has the across-the-ground strike power and class of Barca.

Having Neymar, Messi and Luis Suarez in the Barca line-up is a good start. But in this case it was not a Brazilian, Argentine or Uruguayan who did the damage, but fittingly at Barca's home ground, a Spaniard in the form of Sergi Roberto, who drilled home the winner deep in extra time.

Barca won 6-5 on aggregate. Here's the view from the stands.

And here's the thing you knew was coming -- a Spanish commentator having an audiogasm.

And the next thing you knew was coming -- the goal set to the Titanic music.

Barcelona's heart will go on to the quarter finals of Europe's premier club competition. It is not yet known who they'll face.
