Coming-from-behind victory is not a complicate subject for Luis Enrique's Barça. Barça came back in 5 matches, and they did it seven times. Since against Atletico Madrid and Villarreal they did it twice. Barça are starting to be come back masters, because the 71% of times, they tied the match only 15 minutes after receiving the goal.

On the other hand, Luis Enrique's team only suffered an adverse comeback: against Real Madrid at Santiago Bernabéu.

Almería

The first time this season that Barça twisted the score was against Almeria. On November 8th the team started losing the match at the stadium Juegos del Mediterráneo, with a goal by Thiévy at minute 37 of the first half. Neymar and Luis Suárez were on the bench and they went on at the second half. A Neymar goal (73') and another one by Jordi Alba (82') twisted the score and gave the first three points in the "Barça's back on track"

Espanyol

One month later, on December 7th, Barça got back in a match and this time it was at Camp Nou. The first goal was scored by Sergio García at minute 13. However, the final result (5-1) reflected that Luis Enrique and his men were capable of twisting the score. A hattrick by Messi (45', 50', 81'), a goal by Piqué (53') and one by Pedro (77') were the responsibles of the recovery.

PSG

The key match in the group stage of Champions League started out in a bad way for Barça: Zlatan Ibrahimovic scored a goal at minute 15. Three days after Espanyol, it was time to recover against one of the best teams in Europe.

Barça's opponent has only been able to recover one time: it was Real Madrid at Bernabéu

Luckily, it was a quick answer, Messi tied the match at minute 19 (only 15 minutes later) and minutes before the half time (41'), Neymar scored the goal to place Barça ahead. At the second half Luis Suárez scored the third (77') and left a great image of the happy trident at the stadium. 

Atlético Madrid

The second leg match of the Copa del Rey quarterfinals was a decisive match (Wednesday, January 28). After the first-leg match (1-0) Barça needed to classificate for the Copa del Rey semifinals against At. Madrid, and it seemed complicated.

Barça have tied the match 5 times in the next 15 minutes after receiving the goal

Torres scored the first goal at the first minute of the match. This time the draw was scored by Neymar 8 minutes later (9'). However, Atlético went ahead again with a goal by Raul Garcia from the penalty spot (30'). Barça recovered again, to end the match winning 3-2 with goals by Miranda (own goal, 38') and Neymar (42').

Villarreal

After the comeback at Calderón the match against the Valencian team would be apparently quiet. But it wasn't this way. Villarreal got ahead twice as it happened four days before against Atlético Madrid.

Cheryshev's goal at minute 30' made Barça swim back. And as usual, Barça tied again before the half time (44'). At the second half, Vietto advanced Villarreal again (51'), but Rafinha (53') and Messi (55') signed the recovery.
