For Paris Saint-Germain supporters, March 10, will either bring closure to one of Europe's biggest football feuds or, re-open a gaping wound that the club may never recover from. No pressure!
On this episode of PSG Talking, I'm joined by Matt, Guillaume, and Cose to discuss PSG's recent performances in Ligue 1, Neymar Jr.'s return from injury, the return leg against FC Barcelona in the UEFA Champions League Round of 16, and so much more.
Up first, it's all about the battle for Ligue 1. Currently, PSG sits two points behind Lille OSC in the table thanks to an inexplicable loss to AS Monaco following the 4-1 win over Barcelona in the first leg of their Champions League tie. PSG was able to rebound against Dijon FCO and Girondins de Bordeaux, but how confident should fans be that PSG can defend their title?
Next, we switch gears to talk Champions League and Neymar in particular. The PSG superstar is back in training but should the club risk further injury by rushing him? Considering Barcelona's recent comeback against Sevilla FC in the Copa del Rey, PSG could use all the firepower they can get to see out this tie and advance to the next round.
Our crew shares their predictions for the match as well as potential starting lineup options for Mauricio Pochettino to consider. We may get some insight into what the manager is thinking this Saturday when PSG takes on Stade Brestois 29 in the Coupe de France.
We wrap up the show with some light-hearted conversation about Juan Bernat's birthday cake, Everton FC supporters, and we share some of the TV shows and movies that are keeping us occupied between matches.
