Team Cavani Struts Their Stuff In PSG’s 3-0 Smack Down Of Bayern Munich

First things first before we move on to lesser talking points: there was no penalty awarded to PSG on Wednesday, but Neymar and Edinson Cavani took turns on direct free kicks.

Remember those awful spelling tests growing up? The ones that seemed so pointless because everything has spellcheck these days? Well, maybe your teacher had a point; maybe those exercises weren’t so useless after all.

Four matches into the Ligue 1 season, Montpellier realized the club’s jerseys, both official and fan-bought, were produced with a typo on the team crest located on the left breast of the shirt.
