PSG negotiate tricky Ajaccio test as Coupe de la Ligue title defence begins

Serge Aurier climbs above the Ajaccio defence to nod PSG into the lead on Wednesday.

Paris Saint-Germain got their Coupe de la Ligue title defence underway with a 3-1 win over Ligue 2 side AC Ajaccio on Wednesday. The Corsican side did not prove to be rollovers at the Stade Francois Coty, even if the scoreline suggests that the result was never in doubt, but Laurent Blanc's men did eventually get the job done.

Johan Cavalli's 27th minute penalty gave the hosts the lead and Les Ours could and should have doubled it before the end of the first half. Lucas Moura provided Edinson Cavani...

Ligue 1 is the most exciting title race in Europe at the moment

ESPN FC's Stuart Holden contends that Chelsea has better chemistry in midfield than PSG.

The French are not known for being particularly good at suspense. We are quite a predictable bunch as my British wife will often remind me.

Our back catalogue of films consist of many a twisted love story with a psychological edge, our best writers philosophize and give social commentary and our general elections are a one horse race where politicians make predictable comebacks. However our football is different. We've done suspense pretty well over the last few years, even more so this year.


Under-strength PSG face tricky Coupe de la Ligue opener in Ajaccio

PSG manager Laurent Blanc believes Chelsea are a stronger side than last season, but explains his side are continuing to improve as the season progresses.

Paris Saint-Germain will get their Coupe de la Ligue title defence underway in Corsica on Wednesday at AC Ajaccio's Stade Francois Coty. Les Ours were a Ligue 1 side up until last season, when they slipped into Ligue 2 for the first time since 2010-11, but they will provide the titleholders with a potentially tricky test at a venue that has not been a happy hunting ground for Les Parisiens over the years.

While this is an important cup clash, it is still a game against a second-tier side, so coach...

PSG will be out for revenge when they meet Chelsea in the UCL last 16

ESPN FC's Stuart Holden contends that Chelsea has better chemistry in midfield than PSG.

For the second time in consecutive seasons, Paris Saint-Germain will meet Chelsea in the UEFA Champions League after Monday's last-16 draw. The French champions were the first team out of the hat and were swiftly followed by the Blues, offering the Ligue 1 side an immediate chance to avenge last season's 3-3 aggregate defeat in the quarterfinals.

Prior to the draw, Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho admitted that he was hoping to come up against PSG once again and called it an "easy" fixture for the club...

Champions League round-of-16 draw pits familiar foes against one another

The ESPN FC panel discuss which teams can be considered Champions League favourites and whether Mourinho would rather win the Premier League or the Champions League.

It is a remarkable that, for a competition that now hasn't seen a repeat winner for 25 years, we still see so much repetition in the Champions League knockout rounds.

This year's last-16 draw features three ties that took place last season alone, as well as a restaging of the 1997 final. There also are similar features: Real Madrid got an easy draw, Bayern Munich should waltz through and it's difficult to escape the feeling that we're going to see the ongoing trend of all the teams who were first...

Paris Saint-Germain end miserable week with to defeat in Guingamp

The ESPN FC crew discuss Paris Saint-Germain's recent form and whether their transfers are proving to be successful.

This season's Ligue 1 invincibility lasted 10 days longer than last campaign's, with Paris Saint-Germain finally slipping to their first defeat in Le Championnat with a 1-0 loss at Guingamp on Sunday. Like last term, the French champions did not come unstuck against one of the top flight's leading lights, but instead a side toiling at the wrong end of the table.

Ex-sporting director Leonardo's now-infamous quote from after a 1-0 defeat away at Stade de Reims back in 2013, "this is a side made for...
