UEFA Champions League: Barca Pull Massive Comback In Game Two To Oust PSG; Dortmund Pluck Eagles

The UEFA Champions League's Round of 16 continued on Wednesday with two games.

At Dortmund, Germany:

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang produced a hat trick (4', 61', 85', that's him flipping over scoring that last tally) as Borussia Dortmund easily overturned their series-opening road defeat by demolishing SL Benfica 4-0 at home in game two and ousted the Portuguese club 4-1 on aggregate.

At Barcelona:

Neymar scored twice in the final minutes (88', PK-90'+1) Sergi Roberto (that's him [right] celebrating with the aforementioned Neymar and Luis Suarez) scored the series-winning goal on a penalty kick in the fifth minute of second-half stoppage time as Barcelona recovered from their series-opening 4-0 road thrashing and upended visiting Paris Saint-Germain 6-1 in game two and won their series 6-5 on aggregate.
