Soccer teams in Europe still haven’t learned their lesson, many fans believe.
After FC Barcelona and AC Milan suffered from the nefarious Drake Curse in 2022, now teams over there are being affected by the infamous Kardashian Curse.
Last week, Kim Kardashian attended a couple of soccer matches and both teams that were favored ended up losing.
The first match affected by the Kardashian Curse, at least according to numerous fans, saw Arsenal get knocked out of the Europa League on penalty kicks to Sporting following a 1-1 tie after extra time.
After the match, Sporting’s Pedro Goncalves mocked Arsenal star Granit Xhaka’s goal celebration.

Even worse for Arsenal, Takehiro Tomiyasu and William Saliba were both injured in the contest.
Then, Sunday night, Paris Saint-Germain was handed its first Ligue 1 home defeat this season by Rennes in a 2-0 shocker.
During the match, Kylian Mbappe had a goal reversed due to offsides and missed a couple of other chances to score for PSG.
Meanwhile, Goal.com had this to say about Lionel Messi’s performance: “Does he care? Why should he? Messi has evolved into a player of moments, but he didn’t seem capable of any against Rennes.”
“For sure we played a very bad game. There is little to say. I’m sorry for the fans who are always there. It’s not us, it’s not our team,” said PSG midfielder Vitinha.
Naturally, soccer fans blamed the Kardashian Curse for causing Arsenal and PSG to play so poorly.

Back in 2021, Kendall Jenner dismissed claims of there being a Kardashian Curse.
“What I don’t like about this narrative is that the blame is on us. Like, I think that they need to put the — the men need to take that responsibility, you know what I mean?” Kendall said.
“Factually it doesn’t add up,” Jenner added.
Tell that to Arsenal and PSG fans…
Kim Kardashian is at the Emirates and Arsenal are eliminated from the Europa League.
Kim Kardashian is at the Parc des Princes and PSG lose 2-0 to Rennes.
