PSG To Miss Ibrahimovic For Barcelona Clash, As Blanc Says “Confidence” Has Not Evaporated


    Paris Saint-Germain will be missing their most controversial player and former Barca Bad Boy in Zlatan Ibrahimovic, 32, today, but that doesn’t mean the Champions League is over for them! Don’t you just want to roll your eyes when there is an overemphasis on one player in general? Did everybody forget Edinson Cavani’s opening goal against Ajax on September 17? He isn’t just a fan of fishing, you know…

    Sure, Laurent Blanc has admitted that PSG have endured ‘tough times’ without him, but football is a team game and we all know Ibrahimovic and Barcelona aren’t the best of friends at the moment. Remember that autobiography he wrote?

    “We have to go into the match believing that we can win. In my opinion, the best way to compete is to try and play our football. I think Paris Saint-Germain will rediscover its best form by playing football. That’s our philosophy, that worked so well last season. I don’t think all our confidence has just evaporated.”

    The French team are unbeaten in nine matches across all competitions this season, but six of those results have been draws. Meanwhile, Barca have been on a roll, especially after their 6-0 thumping of Granada on Saturday. Which begs the question, who’s the side brimming with confidence now?
