Euro Mascot to be Joking…

PSG turn on the style at the Parc to beat Barcelona 3-2

Paris Saint-Germain finally looked like the European powerhouse that they aspire to be as they beat Barcelona 3-2 in a pulsating match at the Parc des Princes. Much of the pre-match talk was of Laurent Blanc’s fragile position as coach, perhaps letting off the hook a group of players who […]
