Luis Enrique's hopes for an unprecedented second Barcelona treble are back on

22 days after hitting a nadir following that shock 4-0 defeat in Paris, and a week after revealing that he would be leaving Barcelona in the summer, Luis Enrique orchestrated one of the most seismic comebacks in football history.

Unless you’ve been living under a rock you’ll be well aware that Barcelona conjured up a miracle of epic proportions on Wednesday night, fighting back from a seemingly impossible 4-0 first-leg reverse, to somehow triumph 6-1 - the last three goals remarkably coming in the final seven minutes - in front of an ecstatic home crowd, and a simply stunned television audience.

Cue scenes of absolute jubilation, and one of the greatest manager celebrations of all time (see tweet below).

Incredibly, Enrique predicted the record-breaking comeback, which had never been achieved in the history of the Champions League.

In his pre-match press conference, the Prophet said:

"If a team can score four against us then we can score six against them. The result in the first leg was very clear but this is a knockout tie and we're only at half-time. Over 95 minutes, an infinite number of things can happen. Hopefully they will all be positive for us."

Enrique can now once again dream of winning a second treble in three seasons.

Wow. Just wow.

Barcelona currently top La Liga, are now through to the quarter-finals of the Champions League, and have a Copa del Rey final against Alaves to look forward to at the end of May.

In his debut season at the helm Enrique won all three of those above competitions - repeating the feat of Pep Guardiola - before retaining the league and domestic cup last term, while during his time at the helm he’s also hoisted the Spanish Super Cup, UEFA Super Cup, and the FIFA Club World Cup.

Enrique literally sweats trophies.

How can the Spaniard possibly leave the Nou Camp now?

Yes, the 46-year-old deserves a rest. It’s one of the most high profile and high pressure jobs in word football, but managing a team like Barcelona, especially with their current crop of superstars, is a once in a life time opportunity, and one that will surely result in a plethora (more) trophies in the years to come.
