I couldn't even tell you what formation PSG are playing - is it just 8 defenders trying to get the ball to Mbappe & Dembele?

Finish "as cool as a greyhound's nose" and "smooth as the back of a spoon" according to Ray Hudson.

Hate that I'm forced to listen to this idiot in the big games in the US. Then you combine it with an American co-commentator who sounds like he's talking about an NFL game and it's just painful all around.
He’s basically a Scottish Peter Drury. Which makes him entertaining for brief spells but thank goodness the par 3 tournament is available to switch over to.

Don't knock it, it worked

Seriously, I think PSG are on to a good thing going more French talent-based and dropping the Galactico approach, but the team with or without Mbappe still needs work.

Brief spells yes but it's a schtick that gets old very very quickly

PSG suddenly just overloading Barca's fullbacks with 2 wide players and late runs from the midfielders on that side. Completely flipped the game. Fair play to Enrique for recognising the soft spot

Great goal with a beautiful weight of ball from Pedri. But once again Donarummu is his own worst enemy with the terrible clearance under no pressure to set up the attack. How this clown starts regularly over Vicario for Italy is beyond me.

Had to have a double take at Xavi with the Stone Island clobber on - he must be expecting a scrap with the PSG ultras on his way out tonight.
Enjoyable game again.

These teams are both quite swashbuckling, but I can't see either getting past the pragmatic machine that is A Madrid.
