Ligue 1: PSG overthrows Saint-Etienne, reduced to ten, but loses Neymar to injury

Twenty-five points separated Paris Saint-Germain, leader, from Saint-Etienne, nineteenth, at the kickoff of this poster counting for the fifteenth day of Ligue 1. At the Geoffroy-Guichard stadium, the Parisians, beaten by Manchester City (1-2), last Wednesday, in the Champions League, hoped despite everything to continue their march forward in L1 and thus establish, a little more, their supremacy at the national level. Opposite, the Greens, authors of a nightmarish start to the season, remained on two draws and two victories and had the opportunity to continue this series of invincibility in this maintenance mission. For this meeting, Claude Puel therefore opted for a 4-2-3-1 where the prolific Khazri was present on the front of the Stéphanoise attack. For his part, Mauricio Pochettino aligned a 4-2-3-1 with the great first of Ramos in central defense and the fantastic four lined up in front. From the start of the meeting, the Parisians were sharp. On a ball lost by Camara, Neymar concluded a nice collective movement initiated by Di Maria and Messi but the referee finally canceled the Brazilian’s goal for an offside position (5th).

And if Mauricio Pochettino’s men were again dangerous on a strike from Mbappé rejected by Green, it was ASSE, to everyone’s surprise, which opened the scoring through Bouanga, opportunist, following a strike from his teammate Kolodziejczak (1-0, 24th). Led, PSG was pushing to return to this meeting, which would switch just before the break. Guilty of a dangerous tackle on Mbappé, Kolodziejczak saw red (45th). On the next free kick, Messi found the head of Marquinhos who equalized at the best time (1-1, 45 + 2nd). Outnumbered, the Stéphanois suffered in the second act but Green, decisive in front of Mbappé (52nd), preserved this precious point. Under too much pressure, the Greens, however, eventually cracked. On a new assist from Messi, Di Maria, on the right of the area, deceived the goalkeeper from the Loire with a curled shot from the unstoppable left (1-2, 79th). The only downside, PSG lost Neymar to injury, victim of an ugly tackle from Mason (87th) … At the very end of the game, PSG completed their victory thanks to Marquinhos’ double and Messi’s third assist (1-3, 90 + 1e). With this victory (3-1), PSG asserts its domination a little more at the head of L1. Saint-Etienne is once again a red lantern.
