Lionel Messi, Roberto Carlos, Paul Merson, Angel Di Maria – what do all of those gamers have in frequent? An absolute wand of a left-foot.
What about Di Maria and Romelu Lukaku? Neither of them had been wished by Manchester United.
Di Maria was concerned in each single purpose as Paris Saint-Germain cruised into their first-ever Champions League remaining by beating RB Leipzig 3-Zero in Lisbon on Tuesday evening.
It may be laborious to face out in a entrance three alongside the world’s two costliest gamers – Neymar and Kylian Mbappe – but it surely was the Argentine who stole the present on the most important stage.
His cross made it inconceivable for Marquinhos to not open the scoring on 13 minutes, and there actually was no turning again from that time onwards.
Neymar ought to have six objectives because the mini-tournament in Portugal started, spurning one other three superb probabilities tonight, however he wasn’t going to be completely upstaged by Di Maria.

The third purpose captured each of these issues, as Nordi Mukilele slipped, gave away possession after which performed Juan Bernat onside as PSG accomplished the rout.
Bernat nonetheless needed to be picked out, although, and guess who discovered him? Di Maria.
Spare a thought for Man United followers, who’ve needed to sit in entrance of the tv these final two nights watching Romelu Lukaku and Di Maria information their new groups to European finals.
