Will PSG replace Barcelona on the world stage?

Au revoir Barcelona It appears the times are changing in the world of football. Fading are the days of Barcelona’s dominance and a new group of teams looks set to replace them. One of those teams is last season’s Champions League runners-up, Paris Saint-Germain. They conquered the Catalan side in impressive fashion with a 4–1 victory at the Nou Camp, followed by a 1–1 draw in Paris. Kylian Mbappe was the star of the show, with a hat-trick in the first leg, along with a successfully converted penalty in the second. Lionel Messi led his Barca side as best as he could by scoring the penalty in the first game, smashing in a long-range strike in the return fixture, before his 2nd penalty of the round was saved by Keylor Navas. Looking at PSG’s Champions League form from last season an...

Barca’s resilience at Nuevo Estadio de Los Carmenes

Let's talk about the cracker at Nuevo Estadio de Los Carmenes on Wednesday night that saw Granada lose a two-goal lead in the dying minutes of the game and end up being eliminated from the quarter-finals of the 2020/21 Copa Del Rey by Barcelona. It was arguably one of the craziest games of the season and it seemed crazy when Samuel Umtiti was caught napping and caressing the ball just outside the 18-yard box. The France international was dispossessed after a poor clearance and this resulted in the first goal of the night for the home side by Kenedy. The current season has seen the Blaugrana go through many ups and downs and this seemed like one of those downs, and possibly a farewell to silverware when Roberto Soldado doubled the lead for the home side.

UCL Matchday 1- Ronaldo set to rival Messi, but in a Juve shirt

Lionel Messi bagged a hat-trick for Barcelona yesterday in the first set of games of Match Day 1 of the 2018/19 UEFA Champions League against Eredivisie champions PSV. One season ago and we would have been looking to see if his rival Cristiano Ronaldo would replicate similar performance and to bag his for Real Madrid. This won't be the case this term as the Portuguese is now with Juventus but there is still room for rivalry between the two especially in the UEFA Champions League. Funny enough, Cristiano Ronaldo will return to Spain tonight and visits the Mestalla. He'll be doing this in a Juventus shirt, and having broken his duck last weekend with a brace against Sassuolo in the Serie A, one would expect him to continue his fine scoring form in the UEFA Champions League tonight. ...
