Trending: Lionel Messi and Mesut Ozil score Champions League hat tricks

Luis Enrique praises Lionel Messi's performance against Man City, but notes such efforts have become the norm for him.
Arsene Wenger suggests a change in Mesut Ozil's playing style has made him more lethal in front of goal.

Here are the latest stories for Wednesday.

CHAMPIONS LEAGUE: Lionel Messi scored a hat trick as Barcelona thrashed Manchester City 4-0 at the Camp Nou in the Champions League on Wednesday, while Mesut Ozil also scored three as Arsenal hammered Ludogorets 6-0.

BARCELONA: Barcelona boss Luis Enrique is running out of metaphors to describe "best player in the world" Lionel Messi after another clinical performance from the striker saw City coach Pep Guardiola leave Camp Nou a beaten...

3-0 scoreline flatters Paris Saint-Germain as defence struggles vs. Basel

Angel Di Maria, Lucas Moura and Edison Cavani all scored as PSG made easy work of FC Basel.
Unai Emery still sees room for improvement from PSG after their dominant win over FC Basel.

Although PSG won by three goals, scored by Angel Di Maria, Lucas Moura and Edinson Cavani, it was an underwhelming performance from Unai Emery's men.

Di Maria scored his first goal of the campaign to end a barren run that dates back to the Coupe de la Ligue final win over Lille in April. The Argentina international has a long way to go before he is back to the sort of brilliance we saw from him last term but this is something to build on.

Meanwhile, Adrien Rabiot impressed again in the...

Krychowiak's struggles to settle at PSG not helped by ill-fitting 4-3-3

PSG boss Unai Emery is hoping for a complete performance against Basel in the team's upcoming UCL match.

Grzegorz Krychowiak has struggled to settle into life with Paris Saint-Germain, and the midfielder put in another lacklustre performance in the French champions' 2-1 win away at AS Nancy-Lorriane last Saturday.

The Poland international is struggling both on and off the pitch and with Marco Verratti, Thiago Motta and Blaise Matuidi re-establishing themselves back ahead of Krychowiak in Unai Emery's preferred starting XI, the summer signing from Sevilla needs to start taking his opportunities. RMC...

In-form Cavani strikes again for PSG

Edinson Cavani scored PSG's second goal against Nancy.
Cavani's perfectly-weighted chip was the difference for PSG, as the Uruguayan moved to a league best nine goals.

Although it was not the most convincing of victories, PSG came away from Nancy with the three points and can now focus on Basel and Marseille next week.


The most important thing for the French champions was to return to domestic action with a win and they did just that. It was unconvincing at times and far from attractive but Unai Emery's men did what they had to do and remain within touching distance of OGC Nice at the Ligue 1 summit.

Starting the in-form Edinson Cavani so soon after...

PSG can't look past Nancy with Champions League looming next week

PSG's 2-0 victory over Bordeaux was more impressive than the score line reads, according to Unai Emery.

Paris Saint-Germain are back in domestic action on Saturday when they travel to the Stade Marcel Picot department to take on AS Nancy in Ligue 1. With a synthetic pitch and Pablo Correa's basement boys desperate for points to lift them off the foot of the table, the French champions face a match immediately off the back of the international break that could trip them up. However, PSG cannot afford another slip up.

After defeats away at Monaco and Toulouse already this season, Unai Emery's men need...

Edinson Cavani thriving at Paris Saint-Germain under Unai Emery

Edinson Cavani put two past Bordeaux as PSG avoided suffering back-to-back defeats for the first time since 2011.

It has not been the smoothest of starts to the Ligue 1 season for Paris Saint-Germain, but one member of the French champions' squad is thriving under new manager Unai Emery so far.

Edinson Cavani currently tops the league's scoring charts with eight goals from seven appearances, and he is one of four joint-leading scorers in the UEFA Champions League with three goals from two outings. Cavani has also scored four goals in his last four matches for Uruguay. That gives El Matador 15 goals...
