Remembering Emiliano Sala, PSG's mixed-bag season: Ligue 1's good, bad and ugly in 2019

With only a handful of weeks left in the 2018-2019 season, it's time to have a look back at what has happened so far this campaign in Ligue 1 and what could still occur. PSG were super dominant once again yet never far from controversy and disappointment (take Sunday's 5-1 humiliation at Lille, for example).

Meanwhile, Lyon and Marseille have had their share of ups and downs, some of the smaller teams have done really well, and the summer should be busy once more. Oh, and Leonardo Jardim has worked...

Has 'Drake Curse' hit European soccer? PSG humiliation suggests they're latest victims

Arsenal, Crystal Palace and Paris Saint-Germain all lost immediately after Drake met one of their stars.

Try not to panic, but there appears to be a malevolent phenomenon that is spreading through the football world. No, not VAR -- something far, far more troubling.

We're talking about the "Drake Curse," which has long hindered various U.S. sports teams and now would appear to have made the jump to European soccer.

PSG's Choupo-Moting has incredible howler to put Ligue 1 title win on hold

In a bizarre sequence of events, Eric Choupo-Moting prevented his own teammate's shot from going in by stopping it on the goal line.

Paris Saint-Germain will have to wait for at least one more week to seal their eighth Ligue 1 title after a 2-2 draw at home to Strasbourg on Sunday.

Lille's 1-1 draw away at Reims earlier in the day had meant that a victory would confirm PSG as French champions for a second consecutive season, but striker Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting had other ideas.

Having put the hosts in front, the Cameroon international incredibly contrived to stop Christopher Nkunku's goal-bound effort at 1-1, and was unable...
