Live Commentary

  • And that's it! It appears that I was lying earlier when I said there would be PKs. This game ends at 1-1
  • 90' + 2'
    Another chance for PSG! This time Jallet hits a low strike from distance, which Willis spills to Sakho's head, but he can only direct his header back at the D.C. keeper
  • 90'
    Save Willis! PSG almost wins it after Lavezzi's fantastic turn and pass, but the D.C. keeper's outstretched arm kept it level
  • 88'
    Nice build-up between Cruz and Salihi, but Wolff's shot goes wide of the far post. Penalty kicks beckon
  • 85'
    Armand crosses low for Luyindula at the near post, and his shot is put just wide of the far post. Difficult angle for that shot
  • 79'
    Gameiro presented with another decent chance, but he screws the shot wide. Not the greatest of nights for the French striker
  • 76'
    If this game ends tied, we'll go directly to I guess we have that to look forward to
  • 74'
    Josh Wolff is sent through with a great pass, but he slips and misses a golden chance
  • 66'
    Lavezzi looks sharp tonight, displaying some great passing/movement in the second half so far
  • 61'
    Chantome is slowly walking off. Looks like an arm/shoulder injury. He'll play no further part tonight
  • 59'
    Heavy collision as Santos plows over Chantome. The PSG player is still down. Pretty unnecessary for Santos to jump at his back the way he did
  • 55'
    What a save by Douchez! Santos curls a great free-kick in, but the PSG keeper makes a flying stop
  • 52'
    Now Gameiro gives the ball away, leading to a shot by DeLeon, which is saved for a corner by Douchez
  • 50'
    Great ball through to Gameiro, but Wollard makes a decisive sliding tackle. PSG starting the half on the front foot
  • 45'
    And we're off, yet again. The second half has started.
  • Halftime. Good entertainment for the fans here, with a 45 minute weather delay mixed in.
  • 43'
    Looks like Korb picked up an injury for his troubles. Ben Olsen can't be happy about that one. He's coming back in now though
  • 40'
    Menez gets a chance in behind the DC defense, but he takes far too long and Korb gets back and tackles away
  • 38'
    That's it for Zlatan. Hoarau comes on in his place. The Swede gave the fans what they came to see with his excellent goal in the third minute
  • 33'
    Goal Dwayne De Rosario
  • 33'
    GOAL D.C. UNITED! De Rosario buries the spot kick in the upper corner. Douchez had no chance
  • 32'
    Penalty D.C. Bisevac handles in the area. Looks like the right call
  • 29'
    Marco Verratti has been giving the ball away left and right this evening. Not what you'd expect from "The New Pirlo"
  • 27'
    Ibrahimovic sets Maxwell up nicely at the top of the box, but he blasts an open shot well over the bar
  • 23'
    And we're back after a 45 minute delay
  • 23'
    Alright, looks like we'll get started in about 10 more minutes. Hold onto your raincoat.
  • 23'
    No word yet on how long the delay will be or if the match will be canceled. We'll keep you updated as information comes in.
  • 23'
    Hold up. It looks like the players are leaving the field. The referee is concerned about the prospect of lightning. It's been pouring throughout the match.
  • 20'
    Whoa. Chris Pontius takes matters into his own hands. He crashes a volley off the post. It bounces out, PSG still ahead.
  • 18'
    And immediately Dudar clunks into the back of Ibrahimovic to give away a free kick. Thus far Zlatan is getting the better of this heavyweight matchup (Dudar is 6-foot-4, Zlatan 6-foot-3).
  • 17'
    Dudar earns the first yellow of the game.
  • 15'
    Thus far D.C. has edged possession and is passing it around with nice strokes through the midfield, but PSG breaks with more venom. Seemingly every counterattack punctures the United backline.
  • 10'
    Nene rounds Bill Hamid and walks the ball into goal, but the initial pass to free him came when he was offside.
  • 6'
    Menez takes a tumble in the box, but is ignored by the referee. The volatile attacker is, strangely enough, captain for Paris today.
  • 3'
    Goal Zlatan Ibrahimovic
  • 3'
    Well that didn't take long. Zlatan Ibrahimovic scored two minutes into his PSG debut. He is Zlatan, alright.
  • 1'
