Key Words: Tom Brady and company played a role in Barcelona comeback vs. Paris Saint-Germain

Barcelona’s drubbing Wednesday of fellow storied soccer side Paris Saint-Germain in the Champions League was so unlikely that, in the aftermath, it almost made perfect sense a Swiss-born Croatian player with the Catalan club would resort to a comparison to American football’s Super Bowl in describing how he and his teammates accomplished it:

‘We had to believe. Four-nil was hard, but it is football. We saw it in the Super Bowl, what is possible in sport.’

Ivan Rakitić, FC Barcelona

Paris Saint-Germain had jumped out to a 4-0 lead in the first match of the two-leg tie on Valentine’s Day in Paris, meaning Barcelona needed to outscore the French club by five goals to advance in the tournament on aggregate.
