PSG – Lyon: the summary of the match
A few days after their first European steps in this 2020-2021 season, PSG and Lyon met last night for the shock of the sixth day of Ligue 1. After a start to the match rather to the advantage of the Parisians, with in particular two great opportunities for Messi (a deflected shot by Lopes and a free kick on the bar), the first period finally ended with a score of 0-0. On resumption, it was OL who finally found the fault first: alerted on the left side, Toko Ekambi sent a perfect serve to Paqueta in the box and the latter concluded with his left foot (1-0, 54 ‘). Paris reacted twelve minutes later thanks to Neymar who obtained a disputed penalty before taking justice himself (1-1, 66th) and even managed to snatch the victory in added time by Mauro Icardi. Perfectly served by Mbappé from the left side, the Argentinian came into play ten minutes earlier, deceived Lopes with a crossed head (2-1, 90th + 3) and allowed his team to continue their faultless in Ligue 1 ( six games, six wins), against a team from Lyon who undoubtedly deserved a little better.

All the coaches make their choice with that in mind. Sometimes they pay, other times not. Sometimes they like , other times not.

The referee also had an excellent match. I want to hear Mr Garibian for the VAR. We are investing considerable sums to have a refereeing of very high level but we do not use these means (…) We must capitalize. That’s what Peter (Bosz) told the players. There are many more good things than bad. We did not deserve not to lose. The match was of great quality and that lays the foundations for the future “.

It is not always possible against a team like PSG but we did it very well, except at the end of the match. We did not defend very well. I am very proud of my team. We played well, well defended. Unfortunately, the result is not there. For the penalty, I watched the video immediately after the match and there is no Malo Gusto’s foul. He can’t do anything. There is a Neymar foul, it’s not a 100% penalty. I can understand that the referee doesn’t see that. But it’s not possible not to come back to this error when there is VAR. It’s annoying “.

We play every three days, we can’t train a lot. And in this case, we have to do a lot videos to make adjustments. We must work in particular to reduce the spaces between the lines “.
