Julian Draxler Scores Beautiful Volley In PSG First Half Demolition
PSG are quite good at the moment aren't they. On Saturday afternoon the French side put five goals past Bordeaux, in the opening 45 minutes, and Julian Draxler potentially the best of the lot.
Last season PSG had an absolute aberration in Ligue 1. For the previous four years the club from the French capital had been the champions of the country as their immense wealth was telling and no one could get near them.
But Monaco's unreal talent aligned with a season where the Parisians were contemplating life without Zlatan Ibrahimovic and that led them to winning the title, rather embarrassing Unai Emery's team.
This season though Monaco have been weakened whilst PSG have been improved with the signings of Neymar and Kylian Mbappe, which obviously did both things at the same time. But the immense talent that was already there is still capable of wonderful things.
Against Bordeaux Emery's side found themselves 5-1 up at half-time and despite Neymar's unreal free-kick it's possible the best goal was scored by German winger Julian Draxler:
Obviously you'll have to judge for yourself which one is better and it'll be a matter of taste but Neymar's free-kick was pretty decent too:

PSG eviscerating Bordeaux, 5-1 at HT. Neymar free-kick superb, Cavani's goal a lovely move, but Draxler's volley...van Persie-esque.

In the summer it was expected that Emery would be losing more of his squad to make way for the two exceptional forward signings he brought in to the club with Draxler one of those top of the list to leave.
But the German, who was the best player at the Confederations Cup in the summer, stayed at the Parc des Princes in the end.
What a team PSG are right now!
