PSG's Neymar gives tearful young pitch invader a hug and his shirt

Neymar gave a hug and his jersey to a young fan who entered the field in tears as the PSG star was subbed out of the game in the 91st minute.
An own goal from Adrien Rabiot spurred PSG to life as Angel Di Maria, Thomas Meunier and Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting all score to down Stade Rennes.

It's happened again! Paris Saint-Germain and Brazil superstar Neymar showed his generous side for a second time this season as he made another emotional young supporter's day in Rennes.

The 26-year-old, who was branded the "Kim Kardashian of football" by none other than Joey Barton just days after a largely anonymous Champions League outing in Liverpool, notched an assist before he was substituted moments before full-time in Sunday's 3-1 win for the French champions at Roazhon Park.

And, just like...

Paris Saint-Germain and Brazil striker Neymar has been branded "the Kim Kardashian of football" by Joey Barton.

Yes, that's right -- Joey Barton: manager of English third-tier club Fleetwood Town, winner of one England cap and a man more known for his exploits off the pitch than anything he did on it during his 15-year professional playing career.

"I think that he is the Kim Kardashian of football," Barton told L'Equipe. "Neymar is not the best player in the world and we saw that again in Russia...

Marco Verratti's suspension leaves PSG with a midfield problem vs. Liverpool

ESPN FC's Alejandro Moreno looks at the importance of Liverpool's clash with PSG and thinks Tottenham will have their hands full with Inter Milan.
PSG's Dani Alves warned teammates to be cautious of Liverpool's threat ahead of their opening Champions League Group C clash.

Paris Saint-Germain will be without midfielder Marco Verratti, goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon, left-back Layvin Kurzawa and right-back Dani Alves against Liverpool at Anfield in Tuesday's Champions League Group C opener.

Alphonse Areola is no downgrade between the sticks, while Thomas Meunier, largely thanks to his age, is arguably a better option on the right of defence and Juan Bernat represents a logical alternative on the left.

However, there is no replacement for Verratti in the middle --...

Julian Draxler picks up slack left by suspended Kylian Mbappe in PSG win vs. Saint-Etienne

With Neymar and Kylian Mbappe watching from the stands, Paris Saint-Germain cruised to a simple win over Saint-Etienne at the Parc des Princes.

Paris Saint-Germain warmed up for their Champions League Group C opener against Liverpool next week with a 4-0 thrashing of Saint-Etienne in Ligue 1 on Friday.

Julian Draxler opened the scoring in the first half before Edinson Cavani (a penalty), Angel Di Maria and Moussa Diaby added strikes in the second 45 to maintain Thomas Tuchel's 100 percent winning start to life at Parc des Princes.

Positives

The convincing nature of the victory, particularly the attacking nature of it, will have pleased...

Forgotten man Julian Draxler to get chance vs. Saint-Etienne with Kylian Mbappe suspended

PSG's Dani Alves warned teammates to be cautious of Liverpool's threat ahead of their opening Champions League Group C clash.
Julien Laurens confirms Liverpool's interest in PSG's Adrien Rabiot and explains why the Frenchman doesn't want to commit to staying in Paris.

Paris Saint-Germain will be without one of their star men at home to Saint-Etienne in Ligue 1 on Friday in Kylian Mbappe.

However, the France World Cup winner's absence through suspension means that Julian Draxler, something of a forgotten man at Parc des Princes since coach Thomas Tuchel's arrival, should get a rare chance to impress his fellow German.

Since taking over for Unai Emery this summer, Tuchel has largely insisted on playing his players in their strongest positions -- although Marquinhos...

U.S. defender Matt Miazga hoping Nantes, Ligue 1 can boost his career

ESPN FC's Ligue 1 correspondent Julien Laurens gives his take on Matt Miazga's rumoured loan to Nantes and how it will benefit the Chelsea defender.
Alejandro Moreno says the United States need a head coach quickly so the friendlies against Brazil and archrival Mexico don't go to waste.

Matt Miazga labels himself as "obsessed" -- obsessed with soccer, obsessed with honing his craft and obsessed with climbing the European soccer ladder. His obsession helped him thrive in the Eredivisie, and it's also what drove him to make the move to Ligue 1 this summer.

Miazga joined Nantes on a season-long loan from Chelsea in August, and did so with the aim to prove himself at a higher level after flourishing on loan with Vitesse in the Netherlands over the past two years. The promising 23-year-old...
