French League The French champion beat Le Havre on his return 123 days later
The French champion passed over Le Havre (0-9), from Ligue 2, thanks to goals from Icardi (8 ‘and 19’), Neymar (21 ‘and 43’ penalty), Mbapp (29 ‘), Gueye (50 ‘), Sarabia (52’ and 61 ‘) and Lakimuendo Muinga (59’). The big news, however, was in the 5,000 people who gathered at the Ocane stadium. For the first time, since March 8, more than 500 people attend a sports venue.
Paris Saint-Germain, now without Meunier or Cavani, presented an almost eleven gala, with the ‘4 Fantastic’ (Di Mara, Mbapp, Neymar and Icardi) on attack. In goalkeeper played Keylor Navas, in defense he formed with Kehrer, Marquinhos, Kimpembe and Bakker and in the double pivot he aligned Paredes and Ander Herrera.
PSG, who showed their technical superiority from the initial whistle, took eight minutes to get ahead on the scoreboard. Icardi only had to push a ‘death pass’ from Kehrer into the net after a good right-sided inning.
The 0-2, at 19 ‘, also bore the signature of the Argentine. Icardi, this time, headed an extraordinary center on the far post with the outside of Di Mara.
Di Mara assisted Neymar, again with a sublime touch on the outside, when the 0-3 came, on the counterattack, in the 21 ‘. The rest was a ‘work of art’ of the former Bara, who with a feint ‘sent’ Coulibaly, Ersoy and the goalkeeper Gorgelin before scoring on goal.
A bad pass from Fontaine and the subsequent misunderstanding between Mahmoud and Coulibaly preceded Mbapp’s 0-4 on 29 ‘. The 7 of PSG, hand in hand with Gorgelin, do not forgive.
The ‘little hand’, just before the break, was signed by Neymar at 43 ‘. The Brazilian did not forgive from 11 meters after a penalty caused by Mbapp.
The nine changes Tuchel made after the break (Rico, Kalimuendo Muinga, Draxler, Mbe Soh, Verratti, Gueye, Thiago Silva, Choupo-Moting and Sarabia) did not change the future of the game.
Half a dozen arrived in the 50 ‘after Gueye hunted a dead ball in the area after a crash launched by Sarabia. The ex-Everton celebrated it fist high and knee to the ground in honor of George Floyd. #BlackLivesMatter
0-7 (52 ‘) and 0-9 (60’) bore the signature of the Spanish Pablo Sarabia. The former Real Madrid, Getafe and Sevilla first took advantage of a great pass from Verratti over the back to finish off with a cross volley. Soon after, he took advantage of a pass from Kalimuendo Muinga to score at his leisure.
The young PSG youth squad returned the gift of 0-8 to Sarabia. Then it was the Spaniard who ‘gave’ the goal to Kalimuendo Muinga.
The win over Le Havre is, a priori, the first of the four goals that PSG face before facing Atalanta. For now he has two friendlies arranged – on July 17 against Waasland-Beveren and on 22 against Celtic – and two official matches. On July 24 they will play the Cup final against St.-tienne and on the 31st the League Cup final against Olympique Lyon.
