For those who need a reminder, the curse occurs when an athlete or team suffers a loss when Drake either takes a picture with the athlete or wears the team's merchandise. Even though there's a significant amount of (circumstantial) evidence validating the curse, that hasn't stopped players from flicking it up with the megastar right before a match.
Take Layvin Kurzawa, for instance. Kurzawa, a player for PSG, posted a pic with the rapper (who is on his Assassination Vacation tour in Europe) right before a championship match.
Just two days later, not only did PSG lose the match, but it was their worst loss in ten years. Fox Sports also reports that the team lost their captain and another player to injuries in the same game.
AS Roma, an Italian club, clearly don't want to tempt fate when it comes to Drizzy. They jokingly "banned" players from taking any pictures with Drake until the end of season, and they are probably better off playing it safe.
This adds to the list of people/teams afflicted with the so-called "Drake curse," which include other soccer players, MMA fighters, college and professional basketball teams, etc. UFC's Max Holloway went six months unafflicted, ultimately losing and snapping his 13-fight win streak after Drake name-checked him in a song, so take that how you will.
Always the good sport, Drake poked fun at his own curse during this year's football season, during which he wore a shirt that had all four remaining teams in the semi-finals.
