To celebrate the return of the upcoming Champions League knockout fixtures, Pepsi MAX has teamed up with Houseparty to create a fresh football trivia game.

When he isn't popping off wonderful cross-field passes - they're, ahem, sodalicious - or fizzing shots past keepers, Paul Pogba has been surprising unaware fans; crashing the Houseparty sessions of people who are stumped on a Pogba-related question.

Teaming up with Pepsi MAX, the Manchester United man has posted a hilarious video across his social channels of the interaction, Pogba doing so on Houseparty, which has recently become one of the most downloaded apps globally.

As the fizzy drink purveyors say in a statement: "Pepsi MAX® is teaming up with Houseparty to build the app’s first custom trivia deck in an exciting new global partnership that launches today. To mark the highly anticipated return of the UEFA Champions League in August, Pepsi MAX and Houseparty have created the ultimate football deck based on UEFA Champions League trivia for fans.

"The Pepsi Football Trivia Deck will join the roster of free games available on Houseparty, which has seen download numbers skyrocket over the last few months as people have looked for ways to virtually connect during the pandemic. Users across the world will have the chance to virtually socialize and compete against one another by answering some of the trickiest UEFA Champions League questions in a bid to outwit friends and family.

"With more than 250 challenging multiple-choice questions – covering everything from “Who scored the most hat-tricks in the UEFA Champions League?” to “Which clubs have won the UEFA Champions League more than four times?” – the Pepsi Football Trivia Deck on Houseparty is guaranteed to stump even the most knowledgeable football fans."

It promises to be a hard quiz, y'know, unlike Pepsi Max, which is soft...because it's a soft drink.
