Derby County pair astonished by remarkable comeback

Like the majority of football fans, Derby County pair Will Hughes and Darren Bent were fixated on the Champions League showdown between Barcelona and Paris Saint-Germain.

The Catalan giants needed to overturn a 4-0 deficit at the Camp Nou following the humbling result from the last-16 first leg.

Barca put pressure on the French champions by taking a 3-0 lead on the night thanks to goals from Luis Suarez, Lionel Messi and one that Layvin Kurzawa sent into his own net.

Edinson Cavani seemed to kill off a comeback when he nabbed an away goal in the 62nd minute, but Luis Enrique’s side did not give up.

Neymar scored twice – once from the penalty spot – and Sergi Roberto sealed the winner in a dramatic final seven minutes, five of which were added time.

It was one of the greatest European comebacks and it did not go unnoticed by fellow professionals of the game.

Both Hughes and Bent took to Twitter to express their shock at the historic result.
