Speaking after the game, Barcelona manager Luis Enrique said:

"It is a difficult night to explain with words.

“The joy we gave to all Barça fans is dedicated to all those who had faith, who supported us each day, especially in the tough moments, after losing in Paris.”

“The key was the faith in the team and the fans right until the 95th minute. We started really well, constantly recovering the ball, but not many clear chances on goal. But defensively, despite all risks taken, we pulled off a near perfect game.

“We remain alive in all competitions, our objective is to win them all.”

“It is a night which is difficult to sum up in words. It was like the script of a horror movie, with a spectacular start, and a spectacular Camp Nou.”

“We ran an infinite number of risks in defence. It is a victory of faith. We were somewhat rushed in attack but very good in defence.”

“This sport is unique, crazy, no Barça fan will ever forget this night.”

“This team has shown it knows how to win, because we also know how to lose. This win is dedicated to all our fans, especially those who really showed us support after the 4-0 (defeat in Paris).”

“Qualifying in such a way gives us a massive boost ahead of the rest of the knockout rounds.”

Paris St-Germain manager Unai Emery on his part said:

"The truth is we have let a huge opportunity get away and we are aware of that.

"In the last two minutes we lost everything we had recovered in the second-half. Barcelona are capable of this in their stadium.

"In the last few minutes they played all or nothing and they have beaten us."
