As if the Champions League history books being re-written at their expense wasn't bad enough, Paris Saint Germain have suffered further indignation after their 6-1 collapse at Camp Nou midweek.
France's leading sports publication L'Équipe have reported that the Ligue 1 club were forced to bin a documentary they were filming in Spain about their Champions League tie with Barcelona after they were mercilessly beaten off the park by the Catalan giants.
PSGTV was on hand to film the French champions' trip to Spain, from the training sessions beforehand to the journey to the airport, from the flight in club president Nasser Al Khelaifi's private jet to their arrival at the team hotel, and so on.
The documentary was designed to encompass a historic victory for PSG, who seemed destined to dispose of Barca following a 4-0 victory at Parc des Princes a fortnight ago. No side had ever recovered from such a deficit in Champions League history.
Barca did, however, through a quintessential blend of magisterial football, heart, skill, and disgraceful cheating - the latter of which was overlooked within the context of such a monumental footballing moment.
Understandably, PSG's film project has now gone the way of Roy Keane's infamous MUTV interview, and will presumably rot in the club's vaults until the end of time. Had it ever gone to air, we imagine it might have looked a little a little something like the club's 'Supper Club' vlog entries which came back to haunt them in Catalonia.

To be fair to the Parisien club, the documentary was presumably sanctioned ahead of the first leg and not merely after their 4-0 first leg victory; truth be told, a documentary on the second leg alone should have made for laborious viewing had they not pulled an absolute wobbler in Spain.
But this news will have made it even harder for their fans to pull the curtains in the morning.
