PSG Rewrites The Memes (At least Until Next Tuesday)

Paris Saint-Germain’s last three European odysseys could largely be boiled down into a series of infamous images that haunted the club’s every waking moment. 

In 2016-17, La Remontada gave us Messi lording over the Camp Nou…

And the cursed image of Ángel Di María shushing the ground prior to Barça’s three-goal haul in the final seven minutes of the match.

2017-18 was Cristiano Ronaldo “SIUUUUUUU”-ing around the pitch with his golden noodle hair while scoring three goals in Real Madrid’s 5-2 aggregate victory.

2018-19 was the gif that keeps on giving. 

On Wednesday, PSG stared elimination to Champions League debutante Atalanta in the face for over an hour and the memes created themselves.

We had Kylian Mbappé reacting to Neymar’s early miss… 

And the whole squad reacting to it…

Thomas Tuchel stressing the fuck out on his cooler was another good one.

As was this expression of pure horror on the face of Thiago Silva.


And Di María building a N95 mask with his own fingers.

But goals at 90’ and 90+3’ changed the course of history, and the scenes of wild jubilation are now the lasting images of the night. 

Thomas Tuchel was vindicated by Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting’s late winner. 

Neymar and Mbappé might yet make history together.

And Marco Verratti could give a damn about a blown calf. 

PSG is now headed to its first semifinal since 1995, but they’ll again have to handle the burden of expectation as the opponent is either Atlético Madrid or RB Leipzig.
