With Barcelona in desperation mode needing three goals to stay alive, Roberto entered the match in the 76th minute with the score 3-1 . Neymar's two late goals then set the scene for Roberto.As Barcelona's reserve team coach, Luis Enrique brought Roberto up from the club's youth squads in 2009-10 .Not that putting the ball in the net was Roberto's strength. Despite being a regular starter this season, Roberto hadn't scored a goal for Barcelona since September 2015, and that was only the fifth of his career.Even though Luis Enrique moved him to right back following the departure of Dani Alves, Roberto represents the last link in the chain of Barcelona's homebred midfielders that runs through Andres Iniesta, Xavi Hernandez and Pep Guardiola.So, as Luis Enrique said in December, Roberto's future is back in the midfield.Roberto compared his goal to Iniesta's memorable stoppage-time strike in 2009 that stunned Chelsea and earned a place in the Champions League final.
