The Brilliant Reason Why This Picture Of Lucas Moura And Marquinhos Has Gone Viral
Paris Saint-Germain players Lucas Moura and Marquinhos have both become new dad's this week and we at the SPORTbible congratulate them both.
But as the news spread across social media, many noticed a rather big coincidence with the story. It was exactly nine months ago since the French side beat Barcelona 4-0 in the Champions League round of 16 first leg.
It seems both Moura and Marquinhos celebrated the victory with a bang, as they welcomed two new faces to the world this week.
What a remarkable concurrence of events...

Both players took to Instagram in recent days to announce the arrival of their child, as the Brazilian defender revealed that his daughter was born at dawn just after the game PSG vs Anderlecht game.
Maria Eduarda Cabrino Corrêa, nasceu no dia 1.11.2017 na madrugada logo após do jogo PSGxAnderlecht! Hoje entendo o amor que todos os papais me diziam, um sentimento indescritível, um carinho que eu nunca imaginei sentir... Filha, foi uma semana muito intensa e você tão pituquinha me ensinou muita coisa, me fez esquecer do mundo e só pensar em te proteger... Pro resto da vida serei o seu parceirinho! Papai e Mamãe @carolcabrino foram abençoados com a sua chegada e nos te amamos mais do que tudo nessa vida! :family_mwg::heart: #PaiDeMenina #DudinhaChegou
Goals from Angel Di Maria, Julian Draxler and Edinson Cavani gave PSG an incredible chance to progress in the competition, but as we all know, Barcelona did the seemingly impossible just weeks later.
Barcelona completed the greatest comeback in Champions League history after beating Paris Saint-Germain 6-1 on the night.
They may have trailed by four goals from the first leg but Luis Enrique's side somehow reached the quarter finals.
Barcelona are the first side in Champions League and European Cup history to overturn a first-leg 4-goal deficit and the rest is history.
Moura and Marquinhos, however, will arguably have fonder memories of the two leg clash as they have both become fathers this week.
