On The Continent: PSG run out of gas, the rise of Karim Benzema, and Bordeaux’s fall from grace

by Football Ramble Presents

Dotun and Andy are joined by David Cartlidge to reflect on two intriguing Champions League semi-finals.

Despite one of their finest first half displays of the season, Mauricio Pochettino was left lamenting his side’s fatigue as Man City muscled their way back into the tie. We look at PSG’s midfield and why Kylian Mbappé seemingly vanished from the pitch.

Elsewhere, after Karim Benzema carried Real Madrid to a draw with Chelsea, David explains how he is thought of in Madrid and how his role in the side has evolved since escaping Cristiano Ronaldo’s shadow. And following Bordeaux’s fall into administration, we look at what has gone wrong at this storied club – and whether they can escape disaster.
