Barcelona made a spectacular second leg comeback to beat AC Milan and qualify for the Champions League quarter-finals.

Barca were trailing the Italians 2-0 after the first leg but Lionel Messi scored twice and David Villa and Jordi Alba one apiece in the return leg at the Camp Nou to progress 4-2 on aggregate and keep alive the club’s hopes of a third European title in five years.

Joining the Catalan’s in the last eight are Galatasaray.
