The Amazing Stat Which Shows Just How Badly PSG Bottled It Last Night

The Amazing Stat Which Shows Just How Badly PSG Bottled It Last Night

It is being heralded as the greatest comeback in the history of the Champions League, and perhaps it is: no side had ever come back from four goals down in a second leg in the competition's history. But that is what Barcelona did: Sergi Roberto's 95th minute finish from a beautiful Neymar pass sent the football world into a frenzy. 

And fair play to Barca: they found incredible reserves of skill and belief (and, admittedly, a couple of friendly refereeing decisions) to achieve the impossible.

But for all of that, it was the mother of all bottle jobs by PSG. The French champions spent the entire first half shitting the bed, dropping ridiculously deep, and were lucky to limit their defensive aberrations to just two. Edison Cavani's away goal, however, seemed to have sent them through, and they played with something approaching confidence and calm until the the 89th minute.

From there began the bottling.

Neymar's free-kick in the 89th minute followed a penalty a minute later, and then, five minutes later, he lofted the ball forward for the sixth.

James McManus of Squwaka has furnished us with an extraordinary stat which encapsulates just how badly they lost their composure.

Remarkable.
