Barcelona has a chance of fighting back from a three-goal deficit in Wednesday’s Champions League last-16 second leg with Paris St-Germain as long as the club’s all-time top scorer Lionel Messi is in form, coach Ronald Koeman said on Tuesday.

Barca was beaten 4-1 at home and no side has ever overturned a three-goal deficit in an away leg of the Champions League.

“If Leo is capable of playing one of his best games, everything is possible. He can decide a game at any moment,” Koeman told a virtual news conference on Tuesday before his side set off for the French capital.

“But he can’t be the only one at the top of his game, everyone needs to be. We also have to have some luck and make sure we take our chances and are as effective in front of goal as possible.”
