Paris Saint-Germain have started the season extremely well on the back of impressive performances from Neymar. The Brazilian has been in sensational form this season and has been consistently scoring and assisting goals for the club. The French club is hoping to finally lift the UEFA Champions League crown this season. The Brazilian superstar is critical if they are to achieve this goal.
Kylian Mbappe and Lionel Messi have also been in great form, however, the club will need all three. We have seen often that the Parisians falter in the knockout stages of the European competition due to inconsistency. Despite the great form of Kylian Mbappe, the club lost to Real Madrid last season.
The club needs all three of its forwards to succeed in unison if they are to blow away opponents. When all three play at their highest level, it is often impossible for the opposition to secure a result. Christophe Galtier will hope to keep all three of the players happy and in form ahead of the knockout stages this season.
FIFA World Cup might be a barrier for Neymar and Co.
The World Cup is scheduled to take place in November-December this year. Brazil, Argentina, and France are all considered as the top 3 favorites to win the coveted trophy. It is expected that all three national teams will go deep into the competition.
It is often observed that players who are in good rhythm, either lose their rhythm or feel fatigued post such an important tournament. The FIFA World Cup can have a similar effect on Paris Saint-Germain’s star players. This FIFA World Cup is set to be draining both emotionally and physically. While Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo are playing their last ever World Cup, the testing conditions of Qatar will have an impact on Neymar and Kylian Mbappe for sure.
Nevertheless, these are all professional football players and the club will hope they can recover quickly after the tournament and regroup. This season will be the French club’s best opportunity to win the tournament as Lionel Messi is most likely to move away after his contract expires. Let’s hope the Argentine is able to weave his magic and win the coveted trophy again!!
