“All the glory and honor to you God. Nothing’s impossible for the one who believes in You.” Neymar
Last evening, FC Barcelona sent the footballing world into a frenzy after pulling off the impossible: overturning a 4-0 deficit in the history of football. No other teams had ever done so previously!
Touted as the greatest comeback in football history, FCB showed the world why they’re FCB. Their 6-1 was a far cry from the 4-0 defeat away to PSG a few weeks ago. With two goals from Neymar, one from Leo, one from Roberto, the opener from Luis and the own goal from Kurzawa, FCB happily booked their ticket to the quarters. Edinson Cavani was the only goal scorer for the Parisien side.
I live for moments like these! ❤
Edinson Cavani is still scoring and racking up the goals!
Cavani scored his 100th goal for PSG last evening against Angers in the Ligue 1. PSG won 2-0.
El Matador dedicated his goal to Chapecoense (this was some really heartbreaking stuff and it still hurts right in the heart) by taking off his jersey to reveal a t-shirt underneath bearing the logo of the Brazilian team.
He was booked, but it was a worthy yellow. Rules are rules and if a player removes his shirt, it is a yellow card offense. After the game, Cavani took to social media:
‘I’m sending all my strength and blessings to all family members of the great Chapecoense team struggling today to get through’
Very nice gesture from the Uruguayan.
Cavani is also the Ligue 1 player of the month as I mentioned last time. A huge congrats once again!
Edinson Cavani is a goal scoring machine. Last night, he scored the opener and the only goal for Uruguay in their 3-1 defeat against Chile in the CONMEBOL World Cup qualifications.
Edi has now scored more goals for his country (37) than Diego Forlan (36). Only his good friend Luis Suarez has more (47).
Cavani has now scored 20 goals in 20 games for club & country this season.
Cavani is also the 3rd player to score against the other 9 national teams in WC Qualifiers (Luis Suarez and Agustin Delgado).
This man is on fire.
LIGUE 1 PLAYER OF THE MONTH
El Matador was once again rewarded with the Ligue 1 Player of the Month award having won in Seprember thanks to 5 goals in 4 appearences. A great achievement! He’s been awfully clinical this season and I like that he’s finally starting to show the world what he is made of. I won’t be surprise if he tops the Ligue at the end of the season.
Congrats Edi! Don’t stop shining.

Who else deserves this award?
Edinson Cavani continues to make his critics take seats and I am LOVING it!
El Matador is on a roll for both country and club. Last night, he was instrumental in Uruguay’s 3-0 victory against Venezuela, scoring a brace although Venezuela was the livelier side. Nicolas Lodeiro struck first. Cavani scored seconds after the break and again in the 79th minute to make it 3-0.
Uruguay remains on top of the CONMEBOL group while Venezuela remains at the bottom (and winless) after 9 matches.
Cavani is now tied with Diego Forlán (36 goals) as Uruguay’s top scorer. Only Luis Suárez has more: 46
Cavani is the current leading scorer in:
Europe’s top 5 leagues – 8 goals
CONMEBOL World Cup qualifying – 7 goals
Champions League – 3 goals
Keep doing you, boy! ❤
Do you know how HAPPY I am EVERYTIME Cavani bangs them in?
Edinson Cavani and Di Maria’s partnership is working well. The duo seems to be hitting all the right notes and the footballing world is taking notes. Di Maria found Cavani in the 3rd minute of action against Bordeaux resulting in the opener. Yes, it was a header. Cavani is so good with his head! The second and final goal of the game came in the 30th minute when Kurzawa managed to find El Matador, who scored a wicked backheel goal to take PSG back to winning wins in the league.
This brace means that El Matador now has 10 goals in six games.

Cavani’s brace gives PSG the Group A winner.
Thirty-four years ago, Paris Saint-Germain made their European debut in Bulgaria. They were beaten 1-0 by Lokomotiv Sofia at the Vasil Levski stadium. Returning to this very same ground last evening, the Parisian side locked horns with another Bulgarian team, Ludogorets.
Natanael opened the scoring with a STUNNER of a free kick in the 16th minute leaving PSG to climb the hill. However, Matuidi leveled things up in the 41st minute just before half-time. In the 55th minute, Cavani made it 2-1 with a header from a Di Maria’s free kick assist. El Matador put the icing on the cake five minutes later when he bagged a brace after Alphonse Areola saved a penalty.
I see room for improvement for PSG. With Emery, things have gone just a little bit backwards, but he’ll get there.
