Every season, Paris Saint-Germain stroll to the Ligue 1 title, thanks in large part to the money splashed by the club’s owners, Oryx Qatar Sports Investments (QSi), chaired by Nasser Al Khelaïfi.
That’s how you secure the likes of Neymar and Kylian Mbappé, even if both seem to be growing disillusioned with the lack of challenge presented in the league.
Their march to the 2019/2020 title is basically on the home stretch, with a 12-point lead and 14 matches left to play.
Sunday brought with it another comfortable win, 4-2 over Lyon, and the match also featured an own goal that Planet Football says “may just be the greatest of all time”.
I don’t know if I would go that far, but it is worth watching Fernando Marcal rocket the ball into his own net after a cracking one-two with PSG’s Julian Draxler.
Not an attacker within striking distance, and straight into the roof of the net:
Things that make you go WTF: Bombay HC declared astrology a science, the very mean @DailyMail claims Prince Harry underwent a hair ‘thickening treatment’ to treat his spreading bald patch, Lyon’s Fernando Marcal scored the most WTF self-goal. https://t.co/iVXobh0Szc@BanterFC5 pic.twitter.com/AwTn4h5uff

If neither of those work, you can watch the own goal here.
The initial clearance was poor, the cutback was poor, and the finish was just the cherry on top.
While we’re talking about own goals, we should also mention Adrian Mariappa’s cracker against Watford on Saturday, which you can see from the 1:15 mark:
Again, nobody near him.
Defending really can be a thankless task.
