Zlatan's last Ligue 1 game with PSG was a special production. He still has one more game with the Parisiens (the Coupe de France final Saturday), but this was effectively his send-off. It didn't disappoint, and neither did he.

Sweden have revealed their 23-man roster for this summer’s European Championship in France, and it’s clear that Zlatan Ibrahimovic will have to be at his very best if the Swedes are to maintain any hope of advancing from a very difficult Group E.
PSG is not just Zlatan. Maxwell scored an incredible goal today in a 4 - 0 rout of Rennes at the Parc de Princes. His 50th minute goal included a nutmeg to beat one defender and a powerful right footed shot to the top corner. While you see Zlatan scoring powerful goals for PSG, Maxwell is equally as good. Maxwell has great skills for a defender and has a nose for the ball. Some amazing stuff here.
Maxwell just scored the nastiest goal I've seen in awhile
Over the weekend, Rennes vs Guingamp proved why PSG have basically run away with the Ligue 1 title this year. In case you hadn't noticed, Paris St. Germain have done pretty well in Ligue 1. They are 28 points ahead of second-placed Monaco, which incidentally, is the same amount of points that seperate Manchester United (5th) and Newcastle United (19th) in the Premier League.
It has been a week and we miss Champions League very much. Thankfully, the second leg of the quarterfinals kicked off today with Real Madrid hosting Wolfsburg and PSG traveling to Manchester. With Real Madrid down, 2 - 0 to Wolfsburg, it was time for Cristiano Ronaldo. The superstar scored two goals in two minutes and completed his hat trick in the 77th minute to give Real Madrid the 3 - 2 lead on aggregate. Ronaldo scored in the 15th and 17th minutes in a stunning turn of events. Just like that, Madrid was tied with Wolfsburg and had all the momentum.
Zlatan Ibrahimovic has a media relations strategy that might be described as "prickly."
As the late, great Johan Cruyff once said, “Football is simple. But nothing is more difficult than playing simple football.”
In no match has this idea been better exemplified than Wednesday’s UEFA Champions League quarterfinal between Paris Saint-Germain and Manchester City.
Here were two giants of modern club football going toe to toe with the mouthwatering prospect of a place in the semifinals at stake. Fueled by millions of dollars of investment, the squads sent out were the remuneration of yearly fine-tuning and financial one-upmanship.
The Champions League Quarterfinals continued today when PSG battled against Manchester City and Real Madrid visited Wolfsburg. The surprise of the evening was Wolfsburg defeating Real Madrid 2 - 0 on a PK from Ricardo Rodriquez in the 18th minute and Maximilian Arnold slotting home a cross from Bruno Henrique 7 minutes later. Manchester City and PSG played to a 2 - 2 tie. Zlatan had a PK saved by Joe Hart in the 14th minute, but made up for it with a goal of his own in the 41st. Kevin de Bruyne for Manchester City scored in the 38th for a brief lead.
On Paper, PSG vs. Manchester City promised to be the most well-played of the Champions League quarterfinals. In reality, it wasn't. Fun, though. After a 2-2 tie, City take an away goals advantage back to Manchester.
