PARIS ST GERMAIN (Parc de Princes)

PSG did not issue :(
Tuesday morning was a return back to the French capital for a Champions League group stage game between Paris St Germain and Dinamo Zagreb. There were reports of trouble pre-match as fans clashed but only arriving in Paris at around 2pm, we never saw any.

For such a famous name in football, PSG has a relatively short history having only been formed as recently as 1970, but they have crammed a lot into such a short space of time! League champions twice, runners up 7 times, French cup winners 8 times and a UEFA cup thrown in for good measure.

After a few seasons in the doldrums, the club was bought by the "Qatar Investment Authority" in 2011 and, like Manchester City in England, the super rich owners are throwing money around in order to build/buy success. ex-Chelsea boss Carlo Ancelotti was appointed coach in December 2011 and Swedish striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic was 2012's marquee signing.

The iconic Parc de Princes was packed with over 40,000 fans tonight and they were treated to a brilliant performance, especially as it came on the back of a home loss to St Etienne. Zagreb had no answer as PSG ran out 4-0 winners. Goals from ex-Chelsea player Alex (16), Blase Matuidi (61), Jeremy Menez (65) and Guillaume Hoarau (80) put PSG one win away from the group stages.

Although he never scored Ibrahimovic was involved in all four goals and his all round play was superb. This was the first time i'd ever seen the guy play 'in the flesh' and was very impressed with his game. You pays yer money....
