Oliseh: I’ll Tell My Grandkids About Historic Barcelona Miracle

By Izuchukwu Okosi:

Former Super Eagles captain and coach Sunday Oliseh has lavished praises on Spanish giants Barcelona who qualified for the quarter-finals of the UEFA Champions League after overcoming a 4-0 first leg defeat to advance 6-5 on aggregate following their 6-1 win in the second leg of their round of 16 tie on Wednesday night.

Oliseh who currently coaches Dutch second-tier club Fortuna Sittard tweeted his feelings about the reversal of the tie between Barcelona and PSG moments after the match.

“This Barcelona 6-1 victory is one game that I will tell my grand kids about if God permits,” former Ajax, Juventus and Borussia Dortmund star Oliseh tweeted.

“I don’t think there has been a game like this.”
Barcelona defied history by reaching the quarterfinals Wednesday night by overturning a 4-0 first leg disadvantage in Paris, the first team in Champions League history to advance after suffering that massive first leg defeat.

Edison Cavani’s goal was not enough as Luis Suarez, Lionel Messi, Neymar (brace), Sergi Roberto and an own goal by Layvin Kurzawa ensured the Blaugrana will be among the last eight sides left in the UEFA Champions League.

  • Friends, it is a match nobody will forget and talk about for a very long time. This is one reason the VARs is not supported by me. If VARs is introduced, perhaps all this little little things that made Barcelona to win that match will not be there and nothing to talk about. People are talking about it now because there are things to talk about. What if VARs detected the penalties that PSG would have gotten? Barca would not have won. What if? What if? The game would be too mechanical and uninteresting. VARs is been used in Rugby and Tennis. Any talking point? To mechanical with no human touch. Now look at it there are many things to talk about in this Barca vs PSG historical match. What a match and what a comeback!!!!
