PSG vs. Nantes result: Lionel Messi scores, rescues 10-man PSG in 3-1 win

  PSG vs. Nantes result: Lionel Messi scores, rescues 10-man PSG in 3-1 win It'll be Lionel Messi, Kylian Mbappe and Neymar leading the line for PSG in its return to Ligue 1 play at home against Nantes.A deflected shot by Messi and late curling strike by the Argentine star gave 10-man PSG the lead after Nantes equalized in the second half on the heels of a red card to PSG's starting 'keeper.

The problem with PSG is a lack of commitment and respect for the project from the players. The problem lies with the competition in Ligue 1. If we will look at the table above we can see in the last 10 years PSG has won 7 times the Ligue 1 championship.The closest competition they have faced in 2017-18 season from Monaco.. Other League fans accuse Ligue 1 of being a 'farmers league' due to less competition in the league because of PSG dominance.They also troll PSG for not performing good in Champions League as they perform In Ligue 1.

that's often their problem , they need someone to revolve around, someone like cavani funnily enough or they end up with no one staying on the defensive line. to add to that, putting messi in the middle causes defensive problems as his lack of pressing means you become weaker in the middle of the pitch rather than just on one side, it's similar to the issue united have with ronaldo and it's even worse because mbappe is lazy as fuck too. The problem with PSG is Mbappe is the laziest 23 year old on the planet. Go watch all the "GOATs" at 23 and they were running like mad.

PSG is still waiting to be at full capacity after its summer signing spree, but even that might not solve its issues of imbalance.

Another big night in Europe, and another defeat for Paris Saint-Germain. It didn’t ostensibly matter much, given RB Leipzig’s win away to Club Brugge meant that both PSG and Manchester City confirmed their places in the last 16 of the Champions League on Wednesday, and PSG may point out it beat City in September. But going through having won only two of five games indicates there is serious work to be done if the club's array of summer signings are to translate to a first Champions League title.

Except that Argentinian and Italian have not been for their Parisian works. It does not matter, it is as PSG players that they came to get their trophy on stage. What to allow Parisian leaders to make the peacock while trying to find an adequate positioning between embarrassment, satisfaction and recovery.

I've no problem with Cavani, with my coach, I came to PSG with his support. I want them to stop creating rumours that I've a problem with my coach. I didnt come here to disturbe anyone or to create problems , I came to help. This is hurting me little by little, those made up stories about people who aren't at Paris, who aren't in our day to day, they're talking bollocks.

Lack of top quality teams in Ligue 1 is also a big problem for Psg . They may thrash teams in their league every week, but Champions League is a different ball game. UCL have top quality opposition and most of them actually play as a team. Neymar, despite his incredible talent, is very selfish and arrogant Even after the appointment of Tuchel and bringing in the finest talents by spending around half a billion still if Psg cant reach even the quaters of Ucl then there is some serious problem with the team. I was so excited to finally see Psg in the semis, atleast I expected them to reach till semis.

In truth, Man City was far more dominant than Wednesday's 2–1 scoreline would suggest. Given it was missing Kevin De Bruyne and Phil Foden, this was a hugely impressive performance from Pep Guardiola's side, the only concern being that, once again, it didn’t take full advantage of its domination.

There is a sense that PSG, meanwhile, is yet to get going this season, with injuries denying it a full-strength squad from which to choose. Sergio Ramos, yet to play since his free transfer from Real Madrid because of muscular issues, was named on the bench Wednesday, while the vaunted front three of Lionel Messi, Neymar and Kylian Mbappé started together for only the seventh time. But the midfield was weakened by the absences of Marco Verratti, who was a key figure in PSG’s win over City earlier in the group phase, and Georginio Wijnaldum.

  Next Manchester United manager: Updates on Pochettino, Zidane, Rodgers & others There are plenty of developments in the pursuit to fill the permanent manager role at Manchester United with Mauricio Pochettino gaining steam.That's the predicament in which the Red Devils find themselves as they hope to salvage a season that's taken an early turn for the worse. Failure to advance to the Champions League knockout rounds and finish in the top four of the Premier League would constitute a failure as the club continues to stumble since the departure of Sir Alex Ferguson.

PSG are also set to lose Brazilian winger Neymar for several matches after he was sent off alongside Layvin Kurzawa and Leandro Paredes in a shocking brawl at the end of the Marseille defeat on Sunday night. Not only this, but coronavirus has worked its way through some of PSG 's stars since the Problems up front. With 62 goals combined last term, the devastating front-three partnership of Angel Di Maria, Kylian Mbappe and Neymar was a major factor in PSG reaching the Champions League final last month. PSG could also rely on Mauro Icardi and Eric Maxim Chupo-Moting from the

Thomas Tuchel has been sacked by PSG yesterday. Clubs don’t give reason for their sack in official statements. But it could be one of the below reasons. 1. Slow start in Ligue 1. 2. 4 defeats in 17 matches. 3. 3rd in the league behind Lyon and Lil The most important reason could be his press conference. During the post match conference on Wednesday, Tuchel said to a German Sport TV that he’s feeling more like a ‘Sport politician rather than a coach’. That statement was not welcomed by the PSG board even though Tuchel said that it was an inaccurate translation.

That meant a midfield three of Idrissa Gana Gueye, Leandro Paredes and Ander Herrera, with their role to sit deep and protect the defense leaving a long gap up to the front three (Herrera himself was then forced off with a hamstring problem, replaced by Danilo). And that, of course, is indicative of PSG’s biggest problem: that accommodating the three star forwards means major compromises elsewhere. That perhaps is an easier trick to pull off against a team happy to dominate possession like City, but dropped points against Club Brugge and RB Leipzig show how hard it can be when a more proactive approach is required.

In the reverse fixture in Paris, when City had one of its odd flat games, PSG counterattacked extremely effectively and won 2–0. Although it lost comfortably on every expected goals model, the feel of the game was that it was always in control once it had taken the lead. Stopping other teams countering against City has become an increasing obsession for Guardiola, and that first meeting perhaps explained his squad selection, with Oleksandr Zinchenko included in midfield alongside Rodri and İlkay Gündoğan, and a front three of Riyad Mahrez, Bernardo Silva and Raheem Sterling.

Camera Manchester City, a game, an identity, a regal " in football, the result is random. The important thing is the performance. "Signed Pep Guardiola, after the victory of his men against Paris (2-1), Wednesday . Which Pep Guardiola has made his skyblues a machine to play and feast, unbalance, harass and shine.

The next time PSG can be sanctioned is in 3 years. The only real problem with PSG is that they didn't earn their money.They got their money because of a whole fucking country backing the team so they can get shady sponsorhip to finance their outcome.This is in 10 fucking year.Barca and Real Madrid not outbought everyone they want instantly and didn't get irregular sponsorships just to get around.

The team has great players, but they lack experience at the top level & can't perform under pressure, while Top teams struggle regularly in the Prem & Spain has a fierce Title fight. A 5-1 win over Amiens doesn't help PSG ." PSG had to come out yesterday and look for the first goal to completely shut down the come back, obviously the blunders didn't help but PSG only have themselves to blame. It's like there's this magical barrier that PSG can't seem to get past and honestly it's on the players since I think maybe the only mistake Tuchel made last night was subbing on Cavani too late.

The outcome was that City dominated possession in the first half, had chance after chance and hit the post through Gündoğan. At halftime, implausibly, it was still 0–0, but any sense of jeopardy was removed by the news that Club Brugge was 4–0 down to RB Leipzig, meaning both sides were through no matter what the score.

The game seemed to be following the path of the match in Paris, as City’s inability to take its chances was punished. Wednesday, it was a neat move culminating with Mbappé firing Messi’s deflected cross through Ederson’s legs.

But City, unlike in Paris, rallied. Sterling stretched to poke in the equalizer after Kyle Walker’s cushioned volley broke off Gabriel Jesus, and then the Brazilian forward stroked in a second as Bernardo Silva laid off a deep cross from Mahrez. It hardly mattered given the situation in the group—the win did clinch a first-place finish for City, while PSG will go through in second—but it was another disappointing result for PSG in a high-profile European game.

The paradox that a wealth of great forwards means you have to play defensive football is inevitable at a club like PSG, where signing celebrities has been prioritized over team-building. But that is not the sort of football Pochettino has played at Espanyol, at Southampton or at Tottenham, where he made sides greater than the sum of their parts by constructing a coherent system.

While Brazil-Argentina was interrupted in grotesque circumstances in September, the Argentina-Brazil meeting will take place as planned tomorrow night at midnight French time. The Brazilians, already qualified for the World Cup in Qatar, travel to San Juan to the west of Argentina to face a Albiceleste set to win his ticket.

That may in part explain his apparent frustration with life in Paris and why he is apparently seriously contemplating the possibility of a switch to Manchester United, regardless of his pre-match remarks Tuesday when asked. The politics of the dressing room and the fact his wife and children still live in London may also be factors attracting him to a return to the Premier League despite signing a PSG contract extension to the summer of 2023.

Pochettino has acknowledged that he is unlikely to keep his job if he does not win the Champions League this season—being 11 points clear already in Ligue 1 and restoring its domestic dominance will mean little to the club's hierarchy—and the truth is that PSG looks no nearer now to doing that than it has in any previous season. Perhaps things will change if injuries ease, but even a full squad will not resolve the basic issue of balance.
