3 Academy prospects Paris Saint-Germain didn’t capitalize03 April 2020 / Miguel Coelho
Paris Saint-Germain has an history of wasting their youth talent. Who are they?
FC Barcelona, an eternal contender for the Champions League, will again meet in the round of 16 with an Italian team. This time is Napoli. Messi will perform at the Maradona temple (San Paolo Stadium) in an unprecedented duel in European football: Barcelona and Napoli have never met in official competitions. In the last decade, AS Roma, Juventus and Inter have eliminated the Catalans from the knockout stages of the Champions League, which have won only three of the six last rounds against teams from that country. Could these be motivating factors for the Napolitans?
The Catalans won 4-1 at Camp Nou, but the unexpectable happened at the Olympic Stadium. Three goals for the home side left the Romans in euphoria and dictated the Blaugrana withdrawal.
Messi, Neymar, and Suárez were powerless over solid Juventus that would only have to be fought in the final. Two goals from Dybala and one from Chiellini settled the first leg at Juventus Stadium.
In one of the most emotive qualifiers of the last decade, the Catalans were fought by José Mourinho's Inter. The Italians won 3-1 at home and secured a 1-0 defeat at Camp Nou and won the title a few days later.
