Be Bold, Be Brave: Can PSG Beat Barcelona?

On Tuesday evening two domestic champions will try to overturn a 3-1 deficit in their Champions League quarter final second leg, yet only one tie will really have caught the public’s imagination.

Coupe de France Preview : Paris Saint-Germain v Saint-Etienne

Coupe de France Preview : Paris Saint-Germain v Saint-Etienne

Paris Saint-Germain – by Andrew Gibney Story so far On paper, Paris Saint-Germain’s run to the Coupe de France semi-final looks fairly taxing. Victories over Montpellier, Bordeaux, Nantes and Monaco put them on the cusp of another cup final, but it has actually been fairly straightforward.

Marquinhos at Right Back – the Right Move for Him and PSG?

This is a guest article from Eric Devin – you can read his blog Eric Talks Soccer and follow him on Twitter here.   While Paris Saint-Germain’s use of Marquinhos at right back over the course of January was largely born out of necessity, as Toulouse loanee Serge Aurier’s Ivory Coast side captured the African Cup of Nations, and Gregory van der Wiel has been largely at sea thus far, his sterling performance against Lyon in the league has perhaps asked some questions about his future in the…
