SillySeason are today going to look into some of the greatest ever Champions League comebacks and put together a top-10 list of the ones that stick out in our memory as the best, biggest and greatest Champions League Comebacks ever. Some you will agree with, and some you will probably disagree with. We will probably have forgotten some as well, but you can always bring it to our attentions in the comment section below.
Tottenham recently made a great comeback in the Champions League Round of 16 in 2017/18 season when they went 2-0 down to Juventus. But Harry Kane came to the rescue and Spurs equalised 2-2 at Juventus. While we haven’t included this in the list, we thought it was worth an honorable mention.
Additionally, in the 2016/17 season, Barcelona went down 4-0 to PSG in the first away leg for the Catalans. But somehow, miraculously, Barcelona came back to the Nou Canp and won 6-1. This, we feel is probably one of the greatest Champions League comebacks in history.
But without wasting anyone’s time, lets dive right into the list of the greatest ever Champions League comebacks. Starting at number-10!
Our first memory comes back in 1993. (I was one at the time so don’t personally remember this game so had to do some research)
Werder Bremen were hosting Anderlecht in the group-stages and somehow found themselves 3-0 down after just 33-minutes. The German side went into half-time with the same scoreline needing an absolute miracle to recover.
However, a miracle is what they got.
Just after the hour mark they made it 3-1 and six minutes later, they got it back to 3-2.
With ten-minutes left on the clock, Bremen equalised and sensed the comeback was nearly complete. Just three-minutes later, job was done. 4-3 to the hosts and a stunning comeback.
However, they didn’t stop there. They then made it 5-3 in the 89th minute to complete what was a truly sensational Champions League comeback.
