As Neymar, who has been criticized for his performance in recent weeks, dominated the game, Paris Saint-Germain defeated Lille on Friday’s 12th day of the Ligue 1 league.
Thanks to Angel Di Maria’s goal in the 88th minute, Paris Saint-Germain won an unexpected victory (2-1) against Lille on the 12th day of the Ligue 1 on Friday, October 29.
After Lyon (2-1), Metz (2-1) and Angers (2-1), the Parisians once again fled at the last minute.
The great Neymar
Neymar has been criticized in recent weeks for his disappointing performance (only one goal from the penalty spot), and he played a leading role in a night in Phoenix.
“Criticism is normal. I have played football for fifteen years and it left me indifferent. The superstar reacted to Prime Video’s microphone. I did my best for my team on the pitch.”
The Brazilian faced Lille’s rout at the end of the game and started the Parisian “remorada” rhythm with his dribbling and self-sacrifice. Superman even sang “Thanks Neymar” after 2-1: a decisive pass to sign “Neymar”.
Earlier (74th), Maquinhos equalized with a serve from another great man Di Maria that night. He completed his 108th assist and set a club record. But the champion leader also encountered great difficulties in imposing his own game, especially in the first stage, which ended in front of a well-founded audience with a whistle.
Disappointment in Lille
Lille opened the scoring by Jonathan David (No. 31), which can be regrettable because there are many opportunities to score. But the defending champion still lacks realism, which is a major flaw of his season, and he hasn’t won three consecutive games.
Jocelyn Gourvennec’s subordinate, tenth, may find himself in the second part of the table at the end of the day. His Paris opponent, Mauricio Pochettino, can remain calm before the decisive Champions League game in Leipzig on Wednesday.
Messi replaced at halftime
Star forward Lionel Messi was replaced by coach Mauricio Pochettino “as a precaution” during the intermission of the game.
“As a precaution, I replaced it according to the recommendations of the medical staff. We believe he will appear in the Leipzig game,” the Argentine technician said after the meeting.
On Thursday, the player had muscle discomfort and was unable to conduct group training.
