The mighty World Cup in Qatar turned PSG from the French league into the most interesting team in world football.
Leo Messi and Kylian Mbappe, the two biggest superstars in football today were at their peak in the tournament, and everyone is intrigued to see how the pair will collaborate again now in the French team.
They are also joined by the Brazilian Neymar, who left Qatar in bitter tears after he and the Brazilian team were eliminated against Croatia and registered a great disappointment.
Today (22:00) PSG will return to the French league, when they will meet Strasbourg for the round of 16.
The Argentinian has not yet returned from his homeland and the celebrations, and is expected to join the team in the coming days, but Mbappe and Neymar are expected to play again this evening.
In the local arena, the Parisians lead the league and to be realistic it is hard to believe that anyone is able to threaten them on the way to a second championship in a row.
But the big question is whether the trio of stars will be able to lead the team to finally winning the Champions League, where they are going to meet Bayern Munich in the round of 16 in February for those who have forgotten.
Before they return to the spotlight, it's a good time to recall what the stars did before the break in their team uniforms.

the most talked about man in the world is still recovering from the best month of his life, in which he led Argentina to win the World Cup and was named the best player of the tournament.
At the age of 35, the flea looks in fantastic form, scoring 7 goals and assisting 10 more in 13 appearances in the French league.
He also excelled in the Champions League, among others against Maccabi Haifa, and scored 4 goals in 5 games.

at the end of a personally historic tournament, the French star who scored a hat trick in the final match and 8 goals in the entire tournament, returned home very disappointed.
His team will hope that he will put the big miss behind him, and return to the ability he displayed before the break.
In 14 games in France, Mbappe scored 12 goals and assisted 2 more.
In the Champions League, he is hot with 7 goals in 6 games.
By the way, in both establishments Mbappe is at the top of the goalscoring table (in the Champions along with Mohamed Salah).

The case of the Brazilian is perhaps the most interesting of the three.
Neymar took the Selecao's elimination from Qatar very hard, having missed large parts of the tournament through injury.
According to reports, this may have been the player's last major tournament in the national uniform, and he is expected to take a break from the national team anyway.
Before the tournament, he showed very good ability in the uniform of the French team when he scored 11 goals and assisted 9 more in 14 games in the league.
In the Champions League he was less sharp, with 2 goals in 5 games.
If he puts the disappointment behind him, he could be the difference in PSG's season.
