Paris Saint-Germain stays on the run for qualifying in the eighth section of the Champions League! With a 2-1 victory in Liverpool on Wednesday, the club won the second place in Group C before the group's last day.
Joy of Neymara and Mbappa after the second goal in Paris (2-0, 37.)
To continue the adventure in this Champions League, Paris Saint-Germain should win this Wednesday evening at the Parc des Princes. This is happening with Liverpool's successful face (2-1)! It was not easy for PSG, as it accumulates in the second period but the bottom line is l and Paris is in good standing before the last day.
PSG gives the right ingredients
We expected the SG in Paris to be determined and conquered. The Parisians immediately set the tone! Very well at this meeting dominated Thomas Tuchel's men and quickly gained the dangerous opportunities of Di Maria and Mbapp, whose strikes were halted by Alisson. But goalkeeper Liverpool finally finished the first quarter of an hour on a shot from Bernat (1-0, 14.)! Opening a score deserves a good start to Paris.
Derrire, the PSG went with an intensity, and Liverpool let go of the ball. The lower part, the Parisians then suffered several attacks on the Reds, without actually fearing Buffon. At the edge of the field, Tuchel was not happy to see his players being less present in the laundry. But the Paris coach smiled again when Neymar interrupted the corpse after a pair of men (2-0, 37). Park could let his joy explode!
Di Maria re-starts Liverpool
The Parisians thought they could return to the cloakroom with the advantage of two goals, but Liverpool received a logical punishment after the late advance from Di Maria to the man. PSG players were furious, but the foul was real and Milner lowered the cart (2-1, 45th + 1). Increased by this goal, the Reds strongly attacked the second season and Paris was in trouble. Tuchel's players made their opponent's ball too fast to see the red waves that hit Buffon's surface.
PSG is no longer in this second period, the image of Mbapp is completely transparent from the return of the changing rooms. The Parisians could not build at all, and on the corner Marquinhos took his head to take care of Alison. Minutes have passed and the threat of realization has remained until the last moments. According to the Thiago Silva standard, the Parisian defense lasted until the last whistle. Paris decided to have second place before the last match against the Belgrade Red Star.
Match Note: 7/10
We had a very good match. With great dedication, purpose and tension, the show was enjoyable in a good atmosphere in the Parc des Princes. The last half hour was far more chaotic for the fans of Paris and probably untenable.
Verratti returned to the ground, relying on Di Maria and found Mbapp on the left. The striker's center is rejected by Van Dijk, but Bernat followed, Gomet's rounds and the right hand shot (1-0, 14th).
– Neymar accelerates to the left and finds Mbapp in the center of the goal. Cavani goes on, but Alisson stops. Neymar is to take back my skin and score in the empty goal (2-0, 37).
– After the penalty won by Man, Milner takes care of it and defends Buffon against the goal keeper (2-1, 45th + 1).
Maxifoot introduced rating (out of 10) comments on each player.
Match Man: Thiago Silva (8.5 / 10)
"Monstro" answered tonight! Sometimes he criticized his mind at major meetings, the Paris captain was normal. Outstanding in anticipation and ubiquitous in its surface, he matris Firmino in this section and especially realizes the standard return to Robertson in the second period.
PARIS SG :
Gianluigi Buffon (6): The Paris goalkeeper eventually did not have much work to do. Approaching his interventions, he can not do anything to fine.
Thilo Kehrer (7): A young German defender confirms that his good performances have been observed for several weeks. He defended himself with great intelligence, and in the first period he was not much afraid of man. After the break, he had more work, but now he was able to answer. Makes a very good copy.
Thiago Silva (8.5): Read the above comment.
Presnel Kimpembe (5): Central defender in Paris did not move very much in the first period. After losing the ball in his surface, which offers the opportunity to Salah, then he often panics so that the ball strikes a bit. It is more pronounced in the second act.
Juan Bernat (7): Critics at the start of the season, the left Spanish left behind Napoli. He defensively performed the work in spite of Salah's rise at the beginning of the second period.
Marquinhos (7): In a backup phase in the defense phase and placed between two central in the construction phase, the Brazilian was very good. One wondered if Tuchel made the right choice by preferring Rabiot or Draxler to give a positive answer. He thought he scored early in the second period, but his goal was logically on the offensive.
Marco Verratti (6.5): Immediately we felt Italian on the big night. In the first seconds, Cavani offers a real ball. Behind him was the "Little Owl" festival. Charg to leap the balloons in the middle, escaped the enemy pressure to break the lines with his dribbling and around. It is the origin of the Paris score. In the second period it's a bit more difficult, but today it's a big activity.
Kylian Mbapp (4): Two Mbapp faces tonight. Very mobile in the first period, the Paris invader constantly changed his call to design solutions for his partners and disrupted the English defense. Its two centers will bring both Parisian targets. But after the break he approached the nant … Probably not 100% physically after injuring his shoulders, he practically did not have a good choice in the second period and no longer weighed off offensive. Replaces 85th place Adrien Rabiot (ne),
Neymar (7): The Brazilian was also on a very good evening. In his cuts and drills he almost always caused differences. At the beginning and conclusion of the second goal in Paris, he was inspired tonight. Despite Milner's preferential treatment, he stayed in his match.
ngel Di Mara (4): rather inspired at the start of the match with a beautiful half-stroke, which Alisson moved back and his second and Verratti on the first goal of Paris, the Argentine player picked Liverpool with a foul attacking his surface, offering a fine red. In the second period we have seen little. Replaces 65th place Dani Alves (not that),
Edinson Cavani (3): The Uruguayan did not always save, but it was rather harsh. He lacks control when he can go to the goal. He is definitely involved in the second goal in Paris by taking the Mbapp center but losing his fight against Alisson. Replace by Eric Choupo-Moting (Not That),
Alisson (7): The Reds goalie has two goals this evening, but has released a great game. Quickly taken in mid-flight Di Maria and shot from Mbapp, then he made a beautiful trip to Cavani's feet. In the second stage a nice stop on the Marquinhos ball will appear.
Joseph Gomez (4): The Parisians have taken a malicious joy. It is difficult for him to play and Bernat on the first goal in Paris is too easily eliminated.
Dejan Lovren (4): Croatian defender was not in the big night. Several times late and took the speed, like the second goal in Paris.
Virgil Van Dijk (5): a bit hard at the beginning of the game, including a very bad recovery, the Dutch has recovered well. Prcieux in the air and good interventions in the second period.
Andrew Robertson (6): Liverpool's worst defender for a long time. He used it for a good ride. In the second period, Neymar had ever had problems.
James Milner (5): It is not the most beautiful player who sees the game, but his work is valuable to his team. Neymar constantly bothered, sometimes with limited interventions. Replaces 77th place Xherdan Shaqiri (no),
Jordan Henderson (4): Captain Liverpool could not put his leg on the ball and distribute the game. Despite being more at the heart of the game in the second season, he was well controlled by the Parisians.
Georginio Wijnaldum (3): The Dutch midfielder was disappointed tonight. We did not see much in the game and was not technically inspired when he played the ball. Replaces 66th place Naby Keta (not that),
Mohamed Salah (4): After a shy start, the Egyptian wing gains momentum. Until the hour of play, he was previously present and his displacements were afraid of the Paris defenses. But then he lost his influence. The game overall disappointed.
Roberto Firmino (3): a difficult evening for a Brazilian striker who has failed to take on the Paris central defender. He could never compromise Buffon's target. Replaces 71th place Daniel Sturridge (no),
Sadio Man (5): The Senegalese wing was disappointed for the first time but restarted its team by fining. Behind him we saw him in the second act with more initiative, but he came across a good Kehrer.
