Lille had a bad defensive start and the trident pushed up to reach the goal. Messi did not receive a comfortable match from Neymar, he played with Mbappé with some difficulty and the rival central defenders recovered the ball in their area.

Lille is the one who touches and attacks. PSG, wait. The visitors do not respect the local, they are the protagonists and look for a tie before the break.

A situation that could have led to a Lille penalty was reviewed in VAR. However, referee Willy Delajod did not have to reverse his ruling, which had been the charge of Jonathan Bamba’s offense against Nuno Mendes.

Bafode Diakite headed in André Gomes’s cross after a corner and set the discount for the visitor. The errors in the PSG brand are repeated.

Defensive problems continue at the local. Jonathan David headed in anticipating the defense and the Italian goalkeeper served it beautifully at the near post.

Lethal counterattack. Neymar received a croissant from Nuno Mendes that Messi let run, fooling the entire rival defense. The Brazilian played with Vitinha who returned it from first to 10. Neymar pushed her and made it 2 to 0.

A pearl from Mbappé. Neymar saw him only from the left, went hand in hand with two rival defenders, threw a bicycle, a pipe, passed between two players and defined between the legs of the rival goalkeeper. A real goal from the striker.

Kimpembe headed back to play with his goalkeeper, but “gave it away” to Jonathan David. The Canadian wanted to touch it above Donnarumma, but the goalkeeper was able to avoid the visitor’s goal.

Neymar saw the Argentine entering only from the far post. On 30 he hit it with his left foot, but the Lille goalkeeper saved the opening of the marker in a wonderful way.

With an offense full of footballers, Timothy Weah was left alone in the area, he finished off the goal and the PSG goalkeeper covered it with his legs. On the rebound, André Gomes had the misfortune that he didn’t look good enough to push her.

The Portuguese Paulo Fonseca arranged for the following starters: Lucas Chevalier; Bafode Diakite, José Fonte, Tiago Djalo and Timothy Weah; Angel Gomes and Benjamin André; André Gomes, Rémy Cabella and Jonathan Bamba; Jonathan David.

The footballers of both teams are already warming up prior to the start of the game that will begin at 9 in Argentina.

The three defeats in a row in three different competitions made the PSG dressing room hatch. The string began in Marseille for the French Cup, continued in Monaco for Ligue 1 and continued at the Parc des Princes with the most painful fall of all: with Bayern for the first leg of the Champions League round of 16. Unaccustomed to losing, the search for those responsible began. And beyond the coach, Christophe Galtier, the lights pointed to Luis Campos, the sports director and responsible for all the club’s signings.

In addition, the French press point out that Neymar and Marquinhos accuse Campos of having worsened the quality of the squad. As they added, the two Brazilians, heavyweights of the squad, responded to him in front of all his teammates. The prelude to a situation that could get worse if the team lost to Bayern. And lost.
