3. Another last-minute goal makes it all looks good. It's a trap. Don't buy it.

Check your local newspaper. Flip pages until you reach the sports sections. Soccer leagues around the world. Ligue 1. Results column. Can you see what is there? Yes, of course, you can: another win by PSG. Ah, it must be always sunny in Paris, isn't it?

It surely isn't. The only thing PSG is doing with this stupid type of victory is painting a much brighter picture of the team, the season, and Christophe Galtier than most fans can appreciate. A win is a win is a win, right? Wrong.

Obviously, the three points are always welcomed but the flaws are going nowhere. It is more than unsustainable to hope for Mbappe, Messi, and Neymar to connect one time through 90 minutes of play and make that work for the team so they can keep bagging wins.

The 4-3 come-from-behind win over Lille was already underserved and a true see-it-to-believe-it type of victory. This one was the same. The team nearly pulled off another surprising comeback against Bayern in their first-leg game when Mbappe entered the pitch and scored two goals only for them to get ruled off by VAR (one of them by tiny millimeters). On and on it goes...

Everything points toward a full season of the Luis Campos-Christophe Galtier pairing, and the coach is already overselling the fact that PSG will end up (because they're still fighting for it, mind you!) winning a historic 11th, record-breaking Ligue 1 title. That's the only thing you must demand PSG, to win the domestic league. So don't buy Galtier's grandeur. He's just doing what he must, and kinda failing at that.
