Barcelona goalkeeper Marc-Andre ter Stegen reveals what Luis Suarez said when he saw him in the PSG penalty area

Barcelona pulled off the comeback of all comebacks against Paris Saint-Germain.
Going into the second leg of their last-16 Champions League clash with the French giants, the Catalan club pulled off a 6-5 aggregate win.

The dust has now settled on that victory as Luis Enrique's men prepare for a difficult quarter-final clash with Juventus.

And Marc-Andre ter Stegen has spoken out to reveal the brilliant thing Luis Suarez said to him and, arguably, his even better reply.

With the game drawing to a close and Barcelona crashing out of the Champions League, the club threw the kitchen sink at PSG.

As you'll know doubt remember ter Stegen was in the box when Sergi Roberto completed one of the great comebacks of all time.

It's not uncommon to see a keeper up in the opposition's box so late in a game being chased desperately, but Suarez was surprised to see him nonetheless.

"I do not know what I was doing there," Ter Stegen told Mundo Deportivo. "Being ahead does not fit my position.

"[Juan Carlos] Unzue [Barcelona's assistant manager] was saying 'no, no, no, no, stay, stay' and I tried not to look at him.

"Then Luis [Suarez] asked me, 'what are you doing here?'"

Well, it was pretty obvious what he was doing there, but his reply is brilliant nevertheless: "'There's a minute left,' I said.

"'These moments have to be taken advantage of, they happen very rarely.'"

And didn't Roberto do exactly that!?
