Paris were anything but pretty. They had to do it the hard way and almost gave the tie to Bayern. Choupo Moting with a scrappy finish just before half time. Neymar rattled the woodwork twice in the second half. That is perhaps the one criticism of the Brazilian, for all his nifty footwork he doesContinue reading “CHAMPIONS LEAGUE:PSG VS BAYERN MUNICH”
It was a blizzardy Munich night. The challengers to the Kings throne marched into the City in their revenge filled splendor. The pain of the narrow defeat last August still etched in memory. The Prince of world football led the French band of heroes. Kylian Mbappe underlined his reputation as the best in the worldContinue reading “UEFA CHAMPIONS LEAGUE:MBAPPE BRACE SINKS BAYERN”
Last night could be the very last champions league game for Messi in a Barcelona shirt.Yes there was a time when the 4-1 first leg deficit was meat and drink for a Barca team in many a season past but this is a side in transition and aging as well.

PSG all but booked their place in the last 8 of this years champions league with an emphatic victory over Barcelona at Camp Nou.

Where do I begin to even talk about this match here? To even be writing about racism in this 21st century is even more disgraceful. A whole champions league game being called off because an official could not keep his emotions in check. I would have accepted it had this match been called off forContinue reading “PSG VS ISTANBUL BASAKSEHIR”
PSG had a second half meltdown of Friday night against their old nemesis Monaco. The Parisians should really have been out of sight in the first half following a double from Mbappe and 2 disallowed goals from him and Moise Kean.
Rennes had the better part of the play but it is the goal statistic that counts in football. 2 goals from in form Di Maria and 1 from Kean helped PSG to a handsome win.
