The thing about miracles is you don't prepare for them. You don't wait for them. They just happen. Maybe twice.
Barcelona will try to make another miracle happen on Wednesday night at Camp Nou when they face Juventus looking for a place in the UEFA Champions League semi-finals. The Catalan giants lost 3-0 in Turin and need four unanswered goals to advance to the next round.
Given the manner in which the Blaugrana lost in Italy last week, no one expects Barça to advance. They lost and played poorly while a physical and determined Juve side dominated the Catalans and had a Paulo Dybala in spectacular form. We will most likely see more of the same in the second leg, because the Italians look like real contenders for the European Cup this season and they just won't let themselves be embarrassed by another Barça miracle.
But hey, we were saying the same against PSG. Who knows? And, you know, the thing about miracles is you don't prepare for them. You don't wait for them. They just happen. Maybe twice.
