Although PSG, who was still injured, Lionel Messi had more of the ball, at first the home team’s offensive play seemed more promising – though, the Paris defense was well on his feet, no goal situation developed.
Then, in the 26th minute, the ball went into the net: Kylian Mbappé’s right pass Neymar he handled it on the long side, stepped inward with it two, then kicked the ball back into the short corner with his right. 0–1
(The Brazilian assailant dedicated the goal in memory of his compatriot, who died in a plane crash on Friday, the popular singer Marilia Mendonca.)
The Parisians continued to play football calmly and confidently, the Girondins did not give up on the attacks either, but were still unable to create a great situation. Then flashed again Neymar, Mbappé double played the ball back to the French corner with a French corner, who shot from 15 meters into the lower right corner. 0–2
A little stat: Neymar scored the 400th goal of his career at 1-0 and the 90th goal from Paris at 2-0, with both stakes taken into account in both statistics (ESPN, Poker Stars Sports).
Turning to the second half, Yacine Adli and then Alberth Elis also worked on Keylor Navas at the PSG goal, then the goal came – but again on the other side. In the 63rd minute, Ander Herrera teased Georginio Wijnaldum, who was selflessly running from the boundary, To Mbappé he passed, and he placed it in the empty gate. 0–3
Although the match seemed to be over, we were not left without an event. Mbappé first received a yellow card for cocking, followed by the home team’s “goalkeeper”: in the 79th minute, after Danilo Pereira lost the ball, Adli played from left to center and the incoming Honduran striker, Elis close up of dredged ball in the net. 1–3
Girondins veteran Jimmy Briand also entered the endgame, which resulted in another goal – from his pass to the replacement. M’Baye Niang shot to the bottom right – but no more equalization, the PSG won 3–2.
