L'Esportiu, March 9, 2017
FC Barcelona's stunning victory over France's PSG last night at Camp Nou earned a succinctly shocked (and triumphant) front-page headline in the Catalan-language sports daily L'Esportiu. For those linguists keeping score at home, L'Impossible ("The Impossible") reads exactly the same in the Catalan and French languages. Headlines in France, though equally stunned, were not so cheery: L'Equipe sports daily used: "Inqualifiable," a word play which means both that PSG didn't qualify for the quarterfinals, and that their pitiful performance was beyond description.
Barca beat Paris Saint-Germain 6-1, in one of the greatest comebacks in Champions League history, scoring three goals in the last seven minutes — allowing Lionel Messi, Neymar and company to recover from a 4-0 first game deficit and advance to the next round.
