PSG Talking Podcast: Real Sociedad Recap + Rumor Mill Update with Jonathan Johnson

Paris Saint-Germain cruised to a comfortable win in the knockout stage of the UEFA Champions League, which is not something we get to say too often around here.

On this episode of PSG Talking, I break down PSG’s 2-1 win over Real Sociedad earlier this week, look ahead to the match against Stade de Reims, and welcome Jonathan Johnson from CBS Sports to discuss the latest news and rumors surrounding PSG.

Up first, I talk about PSG’s professional performance against Real Sociedad where Kylian Mbappé showed why he’s the best player in the world. His two goals propelled PSG to the quarter-finals of the Champions League, but he had help from Lucas Beraldo, Warren Zaïre-Emery, Vitinha, and Ousmane Dembélé. Luis Enrique got it all right in this pivotal match, and despite losing Achraf Hakimi for the first match of the next round, it was as good of a performance as we’ve seen in recent years.

Next, I look ahead to Sunday’s clash against Will Still and Stade de Reims at the Parc des Princes. PSG defeated them earlier in the season, but with Luis Enrique likely to rotate his squad and limit the minutes of Mbappé, some wonder if PSG can continue its unbeaten run in all competitions that dates back to early last November.

The show concludes with an interview with Jonathan Johnson, where I ask him whether PSG can compete with Real Madrid for the signature of Lille OSC defender Leny Yoro. I also asked him about Dembélé’s fitness at PSG compared to his time at FC Barcelona. Other topics we cover include Mbappé’s potential impact on Jude Bellingham and Real Madrid’s squad, whether Luis Enrique might return to Barcelona, Thiago Motta’s future, and so much more.
