Despite the growing pressure Emery is on track to win a domestic treble this season, with PSG in the final of the Coupe de la Ligue and the Coupe de France semi-finals, while his side have a 14-point cushion in the league. Current tactician Unai Emery is a dead man walking, and he sounds as much after watching his team capitulate to his compatriots in the Champions League in both of his two campaigns at the helm.

To add insult to injury, European football's governing body UEFA has opened disciplinary proceedings against PSG for the spate of smoke bombs and a laser deployed by their supporters during the match at the Parc des Princes. The word "game" may be abstract, hard to describe but it has made all the difference tonight. "PSG are missing a lot of things". But there you go, that's the rules of the game.
