Episode 1833: Money 2-1 Narrative, Neymar Can Play, Our New BBC Series Trailer
Even in a pandemic the Champions League is guaranteed entertainment, but this time we were denied our beloved underdog story. Atalanta pushed Paris all the way but in the end, Neymar delivered.

We talk to Jonathan Wilson about last night’s game, why it’s difficult to be considered the world’s best when you play in Ligue 1 and what PSG’s longer-term strategy might be.
It’s a big day for us at Second Captains because we’re launching the trailer for our new international, investigative podcast series for the BBC!
It’s called Where Is George Gibney? and as is only right, our World Service members are the first to hear the trailer. The series itself is coming to BBC Sounds on Thursday August 27th.
