For the first time in his career, PSG striker Zlatan Ibrahimović will face Malmö, the hometown club where he got his start, in a competitive match today. In the video above, he explains why the club, the city, and the people have meant so much to him. »
The deep and hearty snores you hear are from Chinese commentator Dong Lu during this week’s Real Madrid-PSG Champions League match, and he’s not taking a sly jab at the quality of play. Apparently, Dong really did fall asleep during the game, and his network fired him for it.
Every couple years, the European media works itself into a bubbly froth about Cristiano Ronaldo’s future. We’re now in the thick of yet another foamy period, and perhaps because his departure might actually be imminent this time, the papers are going to absurd lengths to search for clues.
Edinson Cavani was once one of Europe’s most fearsome strikers, coveted the world over thanks to his domination of Serie A for Napoli. He had it all: a long, lanky frame to nod in goals with his forehead, a loping stride that sped him around the pitch and onto through balls much quicker than you’d expect from a man of… »
Ezequiel Lavezzi apparently doesn’t understand the word no. After multiple attempts to woo Argentine model Mariana Diarco, despite being told by her and her boyfriend to stop, he continued bugging her. To finally get him off her case, Diarco went with the nuclear option:
Soccer has taken Zlatan Ibrahimović (or is it the other way around?) all around the world. From Paris to Barcelona to Turin to Milan and beyond, Zlatan came, saw, and conquered many of Europe’s greatest cities. Now he’s back where it all started, and he’s making sure the whole city gets a view of The Return. »
I’d understand the sheer ineptitude on display here and the failure to even appear to know what that silly American sport is supposed to look like if we were talking football, but PSG’s players can’t even mimic basketball right? These dudes are out here celebrating lay ups as if they were windmill dunks, and look more… »
We now have our star-studded Champions League final four set, with Bayern Munich, Barcelona, Real Madrid, and Juventus moving on with a shot to win the trophy with the big ears. Let’s look at how we got here. »
Jesus Christ. Jesus Christ. Andrés Iniesta just ran practically the length of the pitch, slaloming past defender after defender before sliding in Neymar for the opener in today’s Barcelona-PSG Champions League return leg. Iniesta has been pretty good this year, but who knew he could still do THAT? »
This is the quintessential Luis Suárez goal. Finding himself stranded alone deep into PSG territory, he sees the three defenders between him and the goal and thinks, "Hm, how about I just bang my way through them all and score?" »
Schalke's nearly-heroic comeback yesterday put everyone on upset alert, and on cue, Paris Saint-Germain went and made good on its own upset bid with today's 2-2 draw against Chelsea, knocking the English club out of the Champions league. Despite a questionable red card on Zlatan Ibrahimović early on, PSG fought back… »
The video below was shot at the Richelieu-Drouot station of the Paris Métro today, according to The Guardian, before Chelsea took on Paris Saint-Germain in a Champions League clash at the Parc Des Princes. You can see a black man attempt to board a car that has a bunch of singing Chelsea fans in it, only to have… »
After a cagey start to today's Champions League headliner—Paris Saint-Germain vs. Chelsea—the Londoners dusted off some of the silky skills they've shown all season. One Blues player collected the ball out wide, sent a peach of a cross into the box, where a teammate deftly flipped it over the defense with the outside… »
We can't keep letting PSG do this. Yesterday, the French giants took on Cyprian giants/world ants APOEL in Champions League play. This was a match even schizophrenic PSG couldn't muck up, right? No. Instead of a dominating performance on a day full of them, we saw another typically lackadaisical display from the… »
Paris Saint-Germain traveled to Cyprus to take on Apoel Nicosia, and for 87 minutes, the Zlatanless PSG played like shit. And then, three minutes from time, this happened. »
Zlatan Ibrahimovic is playing soccer right now. He is scoring a lot. The first came from an unfathomable flick of the foot, almost aiming back where the cross came from in order to blast in the ball with the outside of his right. »
