The Debate

Football and money: Is true competition paying the price?

Paris Saint-Germain will be confronting Real Madrid in the UEFA Champions League tonight, a match that says a lot about modern football. These two clubs sum up what is great and what is not so good about what is dubbed the "beautiful game."

Is all this building a game of heroes fit for the adoring public, or has it skewed how the players relate to the fans?
