Madrid: Spain on Wednesday feted Barcelona's "magical" 4-0 demolition of Milan, praising the Catalans for a spectacular Champions League fightback that swept aside fears that their greatest days may be behind them.
"Barcelona is back!" blared the front page of best-selling sports daily Marca. "The comeback -- and on track for a dreamed of clasico," said rival AS. "What a night!" declared the front page of Barcelona-based Mundo Deportivo.
After going down 2-0 in the first leg in the San Siro, Barcelona's Xavi Hernandez had said the only thing this generation of Barca players lacked was a historic European comeback.
