Alphonse Areola: Real Madrid goalie in eye-catching selfie with PSG stars after Champions League loss

Real Madrid’s Alphonse Areola after PSG

PSG’s Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting posted the image on his Instagram Stories account after the Champions League win on Wednesday.

Choupo-Moting took a selfie along with Kylian Mbappe and Real Madrid goalie Alphonse Areola.

All three footballers looked rather happy in the image.

Alphonse Areola, of course, is on loan with Real Madrid from PSG.

Areola moved to Spain in a swap loan deal with Keylor Navas.

However, some may wonder about the optics of Areola smiling alongside PSG’s celebrating players after Real Madrid’s defeat.

Was it a smart move?

PSG 3 – Real Madrid 0

PSG were without their star attacking trident against Real Madrid.

Neymar, Kylian Mbappe and Edinson Cavani were all missing for the Ligue 1 champs.

However, Thomas Tuchel’s charges cruised to victory following a first-half double from former Real Madrid winger Angel di Maria.

Thomas Meunier scored a late third for the Parisians to cap off a brilliant night in the French capital.

Thibaut Courtois after PSG

Many questions are now being asked about Real Madrid goalie Thibaut Courtois.

Did Los Blancos make a mistake signing the Belgian keeper from Chelsea?

As many doubt whether Courtois is good enough, the goalie claimed that PSG were better than Real from the get-go.

The former Everton midfielder clearly has a close relationship with Tuchel.
