Messi Celebrates His Return Despite Little Paris – Players Debrief and NOTES (PSG 2-0 SCO) – football
On the 18th day of Ligue 1, Paris Saint-Germain beat Angers on Wednesday (2-0). A success without manner.
The Parisians provided the essential against Angers.
When the leader gets the last one, the audience can usually look forward to a demonstration. Sure, Paris Saint-Germain beat Angers (2-0). But the show wasn’t there.
Starting off cautiously, the Île-de-France club quickly found their mistake. On their first chance, the Parisians opened the scoring with Ekitike (1-0, 5th)!
No special welcome for Messi
This goal so early in the game wasn’t necessarily good news for the show. PSG, despite the presence of Neymar and a Messi who was neither booed nor more supported than usual after his return from the World Cup, was not very enterprising.
Angers took the opportunity to chain some sequences of ball possession, or counterattack thanks to the speed of Sima in front, without making himself dangerous. It was Christophe Galtier’s men who urged goalkeeper Bernardoni, jumping on Ramos’ head and Messi’s shot! Insufficient to pack the Park the break.
The disappointing and booed PSG!
We therefore expected a reaction from PSG upon returning from the changing rooms. But on the contrary, it is the Red Lantern who has dominated this beginning of the second period. Clumsy, Sima also missed the equalizing goal with a half-volley in the stands! What annoys some fans who have not hesitated to boo their team unable to put the intensity into their system three central defenders.
However, the locals still managed to make the break thanks to Messi (2-0, 72nd), whose goal initially rejected for offside was finally conceded by the VAR. Unlike that of Neymar who shot Bernardoni. Be that as it may, PSG deliver great success as the current Ligue 1 leaders take a 6-point lead over Lens and become autumn champions.
Match Score: 3/10
Facing the Ligue 1 final, we expected a much more creative PSG. The Parisians never put up the expected intensity and therefore didn’t pack up the match. We even heard Park boos. That means.
The objectives :
– After a touch on the right, Messi moves Mukiele who crosses to the near post in the Ekitike run. The Parisian forward precedes defender Hountondji and deceives goalkeeper Bernardoni with a perfectly crossed plate (1-0, 5th).
‘- On a nice collective movement, Messi finds Ekitike pivoting on the axis. The PSG center forward deflects to the right for Mukiele who gives the Argentine a deep lob. The world champion chained control of his left foot and cross shot with the plate of his right foot to fix Bernardoni (2-0, 72nd).
Maxifoot assigned a score (out of 10) to each player’s comments.
Man of the match: Lionel Messi (7.5/10)
For his return after his crowning at the 2022 World Cup, the PSG playmaker did not return his best specimen. His wrong passes don’t go unnoticed. But he remains decisive by participating in Ekitike’s goal, then scoring himself in the second period. His little dipper for Neymar would have deserved a decisive pass but the Brazilian was slightly offside.
