It was the sad climax to an intense match that was unbalanced in an action that reached half an hour. A free kick taken from the three-quarter zone by Dimitri Payet was finished off by Florian Thauvin, who went ahead behind and by the short stick surpassed Sergio Rico. The Paris team had the opportunity to tie in several actions, especially because of Neymar’s talent.
He already lost against him Lens, newly promoted and now with him Marsella, who had not beaten his rival in Paris for a decade. Thus accumulates the set of Thomas Tuchel three losses in a row. The one suffered in the final of the Champions League against Bayern Munich is joined by the two from the start of the French competition.
Sin Kylian Mbappe, Marquinhos ni Mauro Icardi, still in quarantine due to the positive for coronavirus, Tuchel’s team was left in the hands of the inspiration of Neymar and the push of Ángel Di María, who returned after spending the fifteen days of confinement for Covid 19.
In an intense and rough match the French champion did not hide his impotence against a well-armed adversary who avoided any setback and unhinged his rival, powerless until the end and without points after two days played.
