The world has seen two famous comebacks in UCL final history – Manchester United's 1999 turnaround against Bayern Munich in Spain, and Liverpool's 2005 win over AC Milan, who were leading that particular match 3-0 at half-time.
Arsenal will need to overturn a 5-1 first leg loss against Bayern on Tuesday if they are to advance to the next round, while Barca will need a massive comeback against Paris Saint-Germain on Wednesday, having lost the first leg 4-0. However, coming back from that scoreline is something no team has done in the history of the competition. 
The European competition has seen many great fixtures in its knockout rounds, including Chelsea's 2014 comeback against French giants PSG.  
Other great fightbacks include Barca's 2013 comeback against AC Milan after losing 2-0 in the first leg, and Deportivo La Coruna's 2004 fightback against the Rossoneri.
