PSG’s notes: Messi, the first quack

Find our notes of Parisian players after their draw at Bruges (1-1), Wednesday evening in the Champions League.

Mauricio Pochettino’s ears whistled again. The positioning of Lionel Messi was one of the questions before the first meeting of the PSG in the Champions League, Wednesday on the ground of Club Bruges. And the Argentinian coach needed half a game to understand that the six-time Ballon d’Or, 34, was not made to play on the right of a 4-3-3.

First off-center midpoint (failing to be in the axis in support of Kylian Mbappé), “La Pulga” struggled to take the game to his own account early in the match, even if he touched the bar with a long attempt. He was more dangerous in the second half when he moved in the axis, but missed the opportunity to give the victory to the Red and Blue against the champion of Belgium (1-1).

Distressing neymar

It must be said that PSG, who lost Mbappé to injury (replaced in the 51st minute), could not count on Neymar. The Brazilian number 10 once again delivered a distressing performance. His lack of dynamism did not allow him to tell the difference with the ball at his feet and he gave up physically in the second half.
