Luis Enrique’s men overturned a 4-0 first-leg deficit with Sergi Roberto’s late, late goal finally sealing an astonishing turnaround and passage into the Champions League last-16.
Barcelona were helped in their endeavours by what some onlookers believed to be favourable refereeing decisions along the way and so outraged was one that they have petitioned for the game to be replayed.
The story of Barcelona’s incredible comeback
Citing a number of calls by referee Deniz Aytekin, Real Madrid fan Luis Melendo Olmedo posted the motion on change.org on Friday and by Sunday support had gone well beyond six figures.
“I want to request a replaying of the Barcelona-PSG match,” the petition states.
“Incidents that seriously damaged PSG. As a consequence of the refereeing of the German Deniz Aytekin who benefited Barcelona with his actions and his refereeing.
“That is why I question the aptitude of the referee for his serious mistakes made during the match. I present evidence to anyone who wants to see them.”
The game has caused significant fallout with PSG players and families given an extremely hostile reception back in Paris while elsewhere one fan of the French side is alleged to have killed his friend in the aftermath.
