The return of autumn and the Champions League marks the coming of a stage in the football season when the games arrive thick and fast at the top level. All of the big clubs have played three times over the last week, and as such their stars have had little opportunity to think of anything but football.
For Paris Saint-Germain, it was once again a highly-successful week. Not only did they start their Champions League campaign with a thumping 5-0 win over Celtic in Scotland, a result celebrated by many of their stars on Instagram, they also increased their grip on Ligue 1 by seeing off Lyon 2-0 at home. “Great work from the team, this is the way forward,” Dani Alves posted to his Instagram account following the victory over Brendan Rodgers’ side in Glasgow.
It was cruel on a Lyon side that deserved a share of the spoils for a dogged performance. The nature of the two goals did not stop Mbappe from enjoying his evening, though, as he posted a picture of the game to his Instagram account after the match.
He was, however, on target in PSG’s win over Celtic, blasting his team into the lead with a fierce finish in the first half. For Neymar, it has been customary to post himself a good luck message to social media before his matches, and he has done so twice over the last week. “May God bless and protect us,” both read.
Neymar became an ambassador for the organisation earlier this week and posted a simple picture of himself with the word ‘Hi’ written on the palm of his hand.
PSG team-mate Dani Alves has been in a philosophical mood, as usual. “If you make your base strong, your structure will never shake with turbulence, its principles will be what strengthens your consciousness, will give you the ability to run and excel! If at some point you think about changing something in life, change your actions, change your attitudes and they will be reflected in those around you. Take care of your emotions, they bring love for life and peace for the hearts,” he posted.
Dependendo da sua base, sua estrutura nunca se abalará com turbulência, os seus princípios serão o que fortalecerá sua consciência, te dará a capacidade de execução e competência! Se em algum momento pensar em mudar algo na vida, muda a suas ações, mude suas atitudes e elas se verão refletidas nos que te rodeiam. Cuide das suas emoções, elas que trazem amor pela vida e paz para os corações. #BomFinalDeSemanaMeuPovo #GoodCrazyPower
After his face was portrayed in lights around the city just a couple of weeks ago, he gave coverage to the altogether different event.
He was on target as Nice recorded a thumping win over Zulte Waregem in the Europa League on Thursday and then scored the winner as they went to Rennes on Sunday to pinch a 1-0 success. “It’s only the beginning,” the Italy international forward promised as his fine form continued.
