Champions League history has been created by Barcelona after overturning a 4-0 first-leg deficit to conquer Paris Saint-Germain 6-5 on the book and aggregate their spot in the quarter-finals of the competition.
The French champs still boasted a 5-3 lead on aggregate entering the last two minutes of the clash at Camp Nou. However, a double from Neymar and a 95th-minute attempt from Sergi Roberto created history in the contest and sent Luis Enrique's side marching into the final eight in stunning style.
Barcelona chief Luis Enrique chosen for an all out assault in terms of team selection, with the likes of Sergi Roberto and Jordi Alba both left on the seat, and Rafinha and Ivan Rakitic gave broad midfield locations. Andres Iniesta also began a front three of Luis Suarez, Neymar and Lionel Messi behind.
As for PSG, Angel Di Maria was left on the bench due to concerns over a muscular problem, which opened up a place in the front three for Brazilian Lucas Moura.
Seasoned centreback Thiago Silva was also fit to go back after missing the first leg having a calf problem, while Adrien Rabiot, Marco Verratti and Blaise Matuidi continued for the French champions as the midfield trio.
Barcelona went after the Ligue 1 giants from the initial whistle, and it was just about the perfect beginning for the hosts as a close-range header from Luis Suarez, who beat PSG goalkeeper Kevin Trapp into a high ball inside the box, gave them the lead on the night in the opening three minutes of action.
The referee was not interested despite his fellow German's protests.
Messi's first sight of the PSG goal came in the 15th minute from a free kick, before a curling Neymar strike just angled wide of the PSG post, but the Argentine's effort just missed Trapp's crossbar.
The routine of the match stayed the same approaching the 30-minute mark, although PSG did figure out how to tighten in the rear, which makes it tough for the likes of Messi and Iniesta to decide on that crucial pass in the closing third of the field.
Lucas had a half-chance to register for the visitors in the 31st minute after working some space outside the Barcelona box, but the Brazilian's attempt was directly down the throat of Marc-Andre ter Stegen, before Luis Suarez tested the treatment of Trapp having a low strike down the other end.
Barcelona did have their second five minutes before the break, nevertheless, after Iniesta had kept a loose ball alive inside the away side's penalty area when Layvin Kurzawa, under pressure from his goalkeeper, turned into the rear of his net.
The Spanish champions wanted several inferior defensive blunders to open up a two-goal lead in the first period, but it left Enrique's team needing just two more goals without reply in the 2nd half to level the tie overall.
PSG left Barcelona waiting for the start of the second period, which forced the referee to come across and have stern words with the French champions, who took their time returning to the actions on the field.
Draxler had an early sighter for PSG in the second half, but the German's wild effort from space was constantly rising over the crossbar, and a few minutes of Ter Stegen after, Barcelona moved themselves to within one goal of levelling the tie.
The referee failed to point to the penalty yell after Thomas Meunier slipped and brought Neymar to the ground inside the PSG box, but after talking with all the official behind the target, the spot kick was given.
Cavani came close to scoring an all-important away goal for PSG minute after meeting with a low cross, but the Uruguay international could just turn against the post from close range.
Di Maria was called off the PSG seat in the 55th minute as Unai Emery changed event, as they looked to dampen the feeling inside the stadium having an away goal and the visitors were boosted by the Argentine's introduction.
Indeed, PSG found their first goal of the nighttime in the 62nd minute when the ball smashed into the top corner after Kurzawa had headed towards the mortal striker inside the Barcelona box.
Cavani should have doubled his tally two minutes later after beating the offside trap and breaking into the Barcelona box, but Ter Stegen was out to create a fantastic save, and just about keep the Spanish giants in the tie.
Di Maria should have scored a second for PSG five minutes from time after breaking into the Barcelona box, but the Argentine got his effort all wrong and chipped harmlessly wide of the post.
Barcelona had their fourth of the night time in the 88th minute before the Brazilian scored from the penalty spot after Marquinhos had brought Luis Suarez to the deck when a free kick that is sensational flexed into the most effective corner.
The hosts needed just one more goal to perform a fairly incredible reversion, and that arrived in the 95th minute when Roberto converted a pass that was chipped from Neymar to send Camp Nou into euphoria.
