You’ve heard Marc Damon and I talk about Paris Saint-Germain’s win over Borussia Dortmund in the UEFA Champions League, then ESPN‘s Jonathan Johnson joined the show to share his thoughts, and now, we have a roundtable of PSG Talk contributors talk about the night fans won’t ever forget.
The crew begins the show by giving their thoughts on the overall performance of the team, which some classified as a tale of two halves, before diving into the individual performances of each of the players. Presnel Kimpembe, in particular, was a standout performer on defense while Neymar’s mentality was praised.
Every move that PSG manager, Thomas Tuchel, made nearly worked to perfection. His job was very much on the line if he failed to advance past Dortmund and to come up with a convincing victory with so many injuries and suspensions is a credit to his tactical expertise.
With the Champions League suspended due to the coronavirus pandemic, the team discusses how the tournament might change for the quarter-finals and moving forward.
The show concludes with a discussion about PSG’s post-match celebrations where they ruthlessly mocked Erling Haaland. Many non-PSG fans criticized the club but as you might expect, we felt it was completely justified considering Dortmund’s constant trolling after they won the first leg.
Our contributors are based across multiple continents and time zones so we appreciate your patience as we coordinate these shows to deliver the best English commentary about PSG. Thank you for listening and please subscribe and rate the show wherever you download podcasts.
