CHAM­PI­ONS LEAGUE

The Myanmar Times - - Sport -

FRENCH ti­tle win­ners Paris Saint-Ger­main brought English cham­pi­ons Le­ices­ter City down to earth with a com­fort­able 4-0 win in the ex­hi­bi­tion In­ter­na­tional Cham­pi­ons Cup in Los Angeles on July 30.

A sell-out 25,667 crowd at the StubHub Cen­ter was treated to pas­sages of sump­tu­ous mid­field in­ter­play as PSG gave the naive Foxes a taste of what to ex­pect at Europe’s top ta­ble as they head into their first Cham­pi­ons League cam­paign.

PSG at­tacked re­lent­lessly, play­ing neat tri­an­gles in mid­field and look­ing to play mer­cu­rial Uruguayan striker Edin­son Ca­vani in through the chan­nels while Javier Pa­s­tore whipped in dan­ger­ous crosses from the left.

The threat was largely can­celled out early on by cap­tain Wes Mor­gan and his cen­ter back part­ner Robert Huth, with goal­keeper Kasper Sch­me­ichel hav­ing lit­tle to do.
