Champions League: PSG leave their troubles behind at Real Madrid’s expense
Champions League Getting over their problems
On March 6, 2019, Manchester United completed a remarkable turnaround at the Parc des Princes to overturn Paris Saint-Germain‘s 2-0 first leg lead to send the French side packing from the Champions League – and with it they started Hurricane Neymar.
Everything was a problem from that night on.
He was put on the transfer market, but he’s still there.
Neymar returned to the PSG XI to score a dramatic and excellent late winner over Strasbourg last weekend, and they went on without him to beat Real Madrid 3-0 on Wednesday and to climb out of their recent depression.
PSG winning so comfortably without the Brazilian, Mbappe and Edinson Cavani has brought praise Leonardo‘s way for his summer dealings and the new hero in Paris is Idrissa Gueye, who is their replacement for Thiago Motta.
With Financial Fair Play restricting them, the Parisians barely spent 100 million euros, less than half the price of Neymar alone, but they signed Ander Herrera, Pablo Sarabia, Mauro Icardi and Abdou Diallo.
Next on the agenda is to really resolve the Neymar case.
Nothing has been achieved yet on or off the pitch and they’ll be hoping to have him committed for 2019/20, before another chapter begins in the summer.
