Three great comebacks in sport after Barcelona defeated Paris Saint Germain 6-1 to make the Champions League quarter-finals on Wednesday:
Miracle number 1 — Houston
— At the 2017 Super Bowl the New England Patriots defeated the Atlanta Falcons 34-28 in overtime after being 28-3 down at one stage in the third quarter.
Miracle number 2 — Istanbul
— Liverpool won the 2005 Champions League final against AC Milan despite being 3-0 down at half-time. They then scored three goals in six minutes after the break before going on to take the title in a penalty shootout.
Miracle number 3 — Medinah
— At the 2012 Ryder Cup, the European team trailed 10-4 going into Sunday’s singles after being comprehensively outplayed on the first two days. But Jose Maria Olazabal’s men battled back to win 14.5-13.5 thanks to Martin Kaymer’s winning putt on the last green.
