Everybody is talking about the Chinese Super League. Among the flurry of big-name stars now plying their trade in the world's fastest-growing league is Oscar. A bonafide world class talent approaching his best years at Chelsea, his move shocked football. So does he regret it? And is China's football revolution the real deal or just hype? We also have an interview with PSG & Germany star Julian Draxler, we take a look at 1860 Munich's restart in the fourth tier of German football and the campaign to save Millwall's Den stadium.
Derbies are the games us football fans live for. There's nothing quite like the tribalistic battle for local supremacy and, for fans, it doesn't matter if you're fighting for a league title or against relegation – you just need to win that derby. In this issue, we explore 5 derbies in depth: River Plate vs Boca Juniors, Borussia Dortmund vs Schalke, Roma vs Lazio, Galatasaray vs Fenerbahce and the lesser known Brazilian derby, Sport vs Santa Cruz. There is also a cover interview with Paris Saint-Germain and France star Blaise Matuidu, and his French team-mates Raphael Varane and Mamadou Sakho, plus we talk exclusively to Liverpool striker Roberto Firmino, England women's coach Mark Sampson and go behind-the-scenes at Raul's final game as a professional for New York Cosmos.
