FC Barcelona has ruled Europe for years, but so far they've never had such a golden opportunity to show everyone just how amazing they are. This season, especially after Tito Vilanova's cancer relapsed, the team has suffered from a certain lack of hunger. And maybe it required a situation this difficult to get that hunger back. Tonight the whole world will be watching what happens. And now it's time for Barca to make a historic comeback.
Atletico Madrid started the game strongly and after the first 45 minutes the numbers on the scoreboard were 0-3.
During halftime the then manager Bobby Robson told his players: “Look at the jerseys you have on and the shield you carry.”
A simple phrase, yet still so effective. 3 goals from Ronaldo and 1 from Figo and Pizzi and the game was won. Even more importantly history was made.
If Barca was able to make a comeback from a 0-3 in 45 minutes, why wouldn't they be able to bounce back from a 0-2 defeat in 90 minutes. I think that if the team truly wants to win they will do so. But they'll need strength, belief, support and maybe just a little bit of good fortune. I am a proud Blaugrana and I believe in it! Tonight will be our night! Visca el Barca!!
