Barcelona fans react to Arda Turan display on Twitter following miraculous comeback against PSG
Barcelona needed to score at least four goals at the Camp Nou to stand any chance of knocking PSG out of the Champions League Last 16 after losing the first-leg 4-0 in Paris.
For an hour it looked like Barcelona were about to pull off an upset. 3-0 up with half-an-hour left to get a fourth that would have levelled the tie. Then Edison Cavani scored in what looked to have ended the tie. Barca now required an additional three goals. It looked impossible but that is exactly what Barca pulled off in an absurd comeback.
Arda Turan was brought on for Andres Iniesta on 65 minutes and Barca found the three goals they needed after his introduction.
We took a look at how Barcelona fans reacted to Turan’s display on social media.
You have to give Turan top marks for keeping faith after the 4-0 defeat in the first-leg.

A lot of fans were quite disappointed that Turan did not start ahead of Rafinha.
Enrique would argue if it ain’t broke don’t fix it, Rafinha has played an important role in his 3-4-3 setup following the PSG defat in Paris.
Some supporters were however, starting to throw the towel in and many on social media called for Turan to be brought on.
Luis Enrique is an idiot for Starting Rafinha over Arda, this man has thrown away both games vs PSG smh cant wait for his exit https://t.co/7q361FOseO

I think rafinha should come off for Arda Turan…he would make PSG pay for all those spaces that they’re giving up

Well that backfired
With Cavani’s goal and the sub Arda for Iniesta, the chance of comeback is aproximately 0%.

Turan almost scored soon after his introduction, his shot was saved off the line.

Barcelona scored three goals after Turan’s introduction and rightfully earned praise for his efforts after the game.
