The coronavirus pandemic has affected people around the world and has had a deadly impact.
The severity of the situation has led to travel bans, business closures, and the suspension of football leagues from Europe to the United States.
Paris Saint-Germain has been impacted by the ban on large gatherings of people. Ligue 1 and the UEFA Champions League are both suspended until further notice and the club has canceled all training.

Fans are still riding the high of last Wednesday’s thrilling win over Borussia Dortmund in the Champions League to reach the quarter-finals but that could very well be the last time we see the capital club on the pitch for a while.
We all hope that Ligue 1 and the Champions League will resume eventually and be completed but everything is up in the air at the moment. No one really has a timetable for how long the coronavirus will be a serious health concern.
With no PSG football to watch, PSG Talk contributor, Carl-Oscar Källström took it upon himself to create YouTube playlists of PSG’s Ligue 1 games from the 2012-13 season to 2019-20.

I’m just now starting to dig through these games but it’s so interesting to see the different managers, players, and even opponents who have since left Ligue 1 to become stars in other leagues.
If you miss PSG as I do, definitely bookmark these playlists.
