Jornada 1. Gabriel Montpied Stadium.
Those of Galtier threw themselves into the Gabriel Montpied knowing that they could not drop the good image provided to Tel Aviv against Nantes. The new coach did not change his XI, leaving the same chosen ones from Israel not yet being able to count on Kylian Mbappéinjured in the adductors and still without making his official debut with the capital.
Even if the absence of the French striker is not a problem for PSG to dominate the matches from start to finish. They haven’t reached 10′ of the game when Neymar has already opened the scoring after an assist from Messi. The Argentine reached the baseline, hooked the ball and it touched the Brazilian’s boot, who knocked down Diaw’s resistance with a right hand to make it 0-1.
Already the first in their pocket, the Parisians are loosening up more and more, always fall on the boots of Messi and Neymar to create a hazard. And so they came to the second, with Judge complete a counterattack, then the third, with an expedition from the Brazilian to connect in the area with his compatriot Marquinhos.
But the icing on the cake was missing, which fell in the second half. first with Neymar assist why Messi came out on the bulletin board, then with the postcard of the day: a pass from Paredes that Lionel received in the area, chest checked and defined the Chilean to lower the curtain of the game.
