Most dramatic match ever?

    I saw most of the Barca/PSG match last night, with commentators saying it was the most dramatic champions league match ever. It was pretty astonishing, though the fact that it took place in the round of 16 rather than the final probably rules that out.

    Man Utd's champions league win in 1999 was very different. A shit and depressing game until those final mad minutes, it was the contrast that made it special. As a Utd fan, that's got to be my most dramatic.

    The 1989 Arsenal V Liverpool final minute goal has to be up there as well.

    Some people are on the pitch... would be another obvious nominee. But it would be an obvious one - what tales of relegation staved in the final seconds are there? What's yours?

    That last night was absolutely seminal in terms of drama. I wasn't sure whether to watch, but so glad I did now.You were thinking the whole time they have no chance. The referee tapped into making it happen though & gave Barcelona the benefit of the doubt all too often, I thought. It definitely helped them.

    Barca was OK but they weren't depending on Stevenage getting a result at Accrington

    European Cup Winners' Cup Quarter-Final 1986:

    Dynamo Dresden (East Germany) – Bayer Uerdingen (West Germany) 2-0
    Bayer Uerdingen (West Germany) – Dynamo Dresden (East Germany) Halftime: 1-3, End result: 7-3

    Including an own goal on each side, two penalties for Uerdingen and some questionable ref decisions.

    Wigan v Bristol Rovers in 1997/98. Ended up 10 v 7 by the end.

    2-1 to Wigan btw. We nearly equalised near the end as well

    That one in which an injured Pele comes back on to score a bicycle kick against the Germans.
    Stallone was in goals if that helps narrow it down?!

    that's the one I half had in mind when I started the thread - but I'd forgotten it was the keeper that scored!

    In 1989 Palace were slaughtered by Liverpool 9-0. Later that season we drew them in the FA Cup semi final, it did not bode well. The mighty Liverpool V the Palace, we were resounding
    underdogs. In addition, Palace have never got so close to a cup final before. The great goalscorer Wrighty was out with a broken leg. It did not bode well.
    In case you are not aware of the result, the now MIGHTY Palace exacted their revenge 4-3 after extra time in a classic nailbiter :thumbs:

    BTW, one of the scorers that day? The super AL!

    Certainly plenty of drama. As in acting.

    League 1 play-off semi second leg, 2007, Nottingham Forest-Yeovil Town.

    Forest are 2-0 from the first leg at Huish Park, whereupon the Glovers win 6-4 on aggregate after extra time.

    Man City needing to beat Aston Villa to win the title on goal difference in 2012. Trailing at 90 minutes and scoring 2 goals in injury time to win it, and keeping Man Uniteds hands off it.

    Liverpool - Arsenal 1989 will probably never be beaten, not only do you have the game itself but there was all the events in the background to it as well.

    It was QPR, not Villa.
