LIVE. PSG-Reims: Paris completely shaken, Verratti enters (0-0)

Statistics of the first round

Sterile possession at the moment for PSG with 67.1% possession.

Verratti warms up at half-time

The Italian midfielder did not join his teammates in the dressing room and warmed up on the Parc des Princes lawn during the break.

Paris only shot once…and off target

Symbolic of the Parisians’ lack of attacking spirit in this first half, Diouf’s only shot went well over the bars. Meanwhile, Remois shot at the goal 9 times.

It’s halftime at the Parc des Princes! (0-0)

A very complicated first period for PSG, who were overwhelmed by Stade de Reims, was very uncertain in the final gesture. MNM did not know how to be dangerous in attack.

45+1′. Agbadou throws himself in front of Neymar

Last chance for PSG, but Agbadou intervenes to clear the ball in front of Neymar, a few meters from the surface.

44′. Abdelhamid stops Messi and Neymar

The two Parisian stars try to ignite the Reims defence, but the opposing captain lets nothing happen and pushes them back twice.

41′. Neymar was hit in the face by his foot

The Brazilian, who is the author of the sombrero, confuses the defender and tries to interfere. His high leg lands on Neymar’s face as he falls to the ground. Nothing serious and the fault is for PSG.

37′. Diouf is afraid

Reims keeper loses control and passes too close to the ball. He pushes the ball with his foot so that the Parisian attackers do not take advantage of it.

In total, Rémois covered 41 kilometers against 38 kilometers for the Parisians.

35′. Neymar writhes in pain, yellow card for Ito

The Japanese footballer misses his tackle on Neymar and touches his ankle. For Ito, the young card and more fear of damage for Neymar, who revealed himself quickly after the intervention of the healers.

32′. The Parisians cannot do it in attack

The attacking trio tries to unite. But every time the opponent is repulsed by the defense, it is very compact.

29′. Munetsi tries to perform an acrobatic turn

Reims is still on the attack and Munetsi tries an acrobatic gesture as he receives a cross from the right. PSG goes a meter to the right of the cage.

28′. Marquinhos yellow card

Although the Parisians claimed a foul on Neymar at the beginning of the action, Reims contested it. Marquinhos tackles Eaton in midfield to stop the move. Yellow card.

27′. Ruiz takes a corner kick

Mbappe throws the Spaniard deep into the box. The midfielder goes down low but is pushed back.

24′. Don’t hesitate Munetsi… it’s next door

Rémois continues to try his luck without pressure. This time, it is Munetsi who takes a shot from outside the penalty area. But it is not accurate and flies six meters.

23′. Ito stumbles on Donnarumma

Reims merges on the surface. Ito tackles Donnarumma but the Italian dives well at his feet.

22′. Balogun reaches the goal

Rémois is completely uninhibited. Balogun tries to volley the first volley to a long ball over the defence. It is next to it.

20′. Mbappe is not accurate enough

When they recover in midfield, MNM are down on two-on-three. Mbappe, served by Neymar on the left wing, tries to surrender to his Brazilian teammate, but is repaid.

17′. What a relief from Donnarumma!

Always on fire in defense of Paris. The ball is curled in by Bernat from close range, but Donnarumma makes a fine reflex save on his line.

15′. Reims is still not far away

After a great collective move, Ito tries to volley in a duel with Marquinhos in the area. Paris misses the cages.

After several dangerous situations in defense, the Parisians put their foot on the ball and return to the opponent’s half of the field.

11′. Balogun tries his luck again

The Stade de Reims striker is alone in the area. He shoots first from the left but it’s easily taken by Donnarum.

9′. Balogun dangerous… but offside

Very active, the Reims striker fires a beautiful half-volley at the entrance of the surface. It was ruled out by Donnarumma’s shot, but Balog was flagged for offside.

8′. Marquinhos ahead of Balogu

This is the duel at the beginning of the match. Marquinhos covers the depth well and cleans it up to intervene in front of Balogu.

6′. Very high pressure on the Reims side

Like his first chances, Rémois continues to press very high during the reminders of Paris. With PSG’s defense, he came out clean, not without risk.

5′. Mbappe’s center passes through the defense

Approaching from the left of the area, Kylian Mbappe curls a cross from the right towards the far post. He doesn’t find anyone.

Reims is in good shape

Stade de Reims are on a four-match unbeaten run in Ligue 1, including two wins against Rennes and Ajaccio, and are currently 12th in the table, one win short of the top 10.


Paris XI, with Messi, Neymar and Mbappe

Messi, Neymar and Mbappe came together in an official match for the first time since November, ahead of the World Cup truce in Qatar.

Composition selected by Christophe Galtier:

Donnarumma – Hakimi, Marquinhos (C), Ramos, Bernat – Vitinha, Fabian, Soler – Messi, Neymar, Mbappe


A nice operation to do in sorting

The capital club could have dropped RC Lens by five points to the top of Ligue 1 by beating Reims. Sang et Or had to settle for a draw in Troyes yesterday (1-1). Success in Paris would also give Christophe Gaultier’s men a seven-point lead over Olympique Marseille, who drew just one point in their 1-1 draw with Monaco.


This is the start of a marathon for PSG

At least 10 games will be played in just 39 days: this is the crazy schedule that awaits Paris Saint-Germain, starting with the evening match against Reims. For MNM, this should be an opportunity to find automaticity before the shocks against OM (February 8 and 26) and Bayern Munich (February 14 and March 8).
