Lorient 1-1 PSG
Goals: Monconduit (41e) for Lorient // Icardi (90e+1) for PSG
Expulsion : Ramos (86e) For Paris
No Kylian, No Party.
Deprived of Kylian Mbappé and Marco Verratti, suspended, PSG believed for a long time to bow at the Moustoir stadium against Lorient, before Mauro Icardi, until then invisible, put on his savior cape in stoppage time ( 1-1). Cruel for the Bretons who thought they would taste victory again, they, who have not won since September 22 and a success against Nice.
The story might not have been the same if Mauro Icardi had not harvested Nuno Mendes’ offering a few seconds after kick-off (2e). A failure that allowed Lorient to believe in his game plan: low block and lightning counterattack. And it works, since the Bretons end the first period with 19% possession, but 11 strikes. Including two sacked by Terem Moffi (10e and 16e) and one sent to the skylight of Keylor Navas by Thomas Monconduit (1-0, 41e).
Opposite, Paris struggles to find the key to unlock the Breton wall. And when they think they can achieve it, Lionel Messi hits the post (25e) and Di María, clumsy this Wednesday evening, waters the stands (32e and 73e). Pochettino then tries everything and sends the young Sekou Yansané to make his professional debut. Except that nothing is going for Paris who sees Sergio Ramos being excluded for a second yellow card, while he came into play at the break (86e). But as often with this little exciting PSG, there is always a light at the end of the meeting. And this time, her name is Mauro Icardi who equalizes with a nice whim (1-1, 90e+1).
