Thanks to a goal from the inevitable Marcus Rashford at the very end of the match, Manchester United won on PSG (1-2) on Tuesday for the first day of the Champions League.
As in the eighth return final of the 2019 edition of the Champions League, the Paris Saint Germain fell into the trap set by Manchester United (beaten 2-1), this Tuesday for his debut this season in the competition. A logical defeat in view of the performance of Thomas Tuchel’s men, defensively friable and unable to put pressure on the Red Devils who succeeded perfectly.
Rashford, the X factor
And once again, Marcus Rashford will have been the X factor. Served by Paul Pogba, the English striker did not tremble when he adjusted Keylor Navas at the very end of the game (87 ‘) and thus offer the victory to his team. At the other end of the pitch, David De Gea also made a strong impression, putting out at least three decisive saves during the game. His Parisian counterpart Keylor Navas has also gone out of his way on several occasions to delay the deadline.
The Mbappé-Neymar duo out of the mix
As for the disappointments, on the Parisian side, there are many … To name just three: Idrissa Gueye, Kylian Mbappé and Neymar. Too discreet and unable to add more in the offensive phases, the Senegalese was replaced at the break by Moise Kean. The French striker did not weigh in on the game and clearly lost his duel from a distance with Rashford. Finally, the Auriverde star, although more prominent than Bondy’s kid, will have had too much waste, beyond his ineffectiveness in the last and penultimate gesture.
