The resumption of Champions League hostilities set off wild celebrations all over the club on Tuesday, with several soccer fans expressing their joy by singing along with the tournament’s famous hymn, even though not a single person asked them to and everyone knows it’s incredibly annoying.
In more important Champions League news, Paris St. Germain, most famous for being the French base of Qatar’s bid to take over the world through sports and having Zlatan “I can do the splits” Ibrahimovic on their payroll, defeated Chelsea, the defending English champion now wallowing in the middle of the league table with the likes of West Brom (GROSS), 2-1 on goals from Zlatan and Uruguayan forward Edinson Cavani.
The game was “cracking”, a British euphemism for “mostly good”, and delivered a very interesting scoreline with the two club’s facing off in the second leg in London in a few weeks time. It’s poised. For drama.
Champions League Twitter had a go at the game, using the best tweets on Chelsea’s tactical bus, Cavani’s goal, and the language barrier between the fans. We even got a Freddy Adu reference!
