Psg ko with Nice: Mbappé absent, but with Real Madrid there will be

Without Mbappé, the Parisians collect their third defeat of the season in the league, but remain +13 behind the Rossoneri, who temporarily overtake Marseille thanks to Delort’s goal

Mbappé’s absence is felt. But on Wednesday there will be, against Real Madrid. Good news for this PSG, a little reworked, a little distracted by the Champions that arrives, and in the end punished by Nice, which thus rises to second place. Thanks to a goal from Delort at the end. Defeat irrelevant for the ranking of the Paris club, however first at +13, but that the season is played in Europe.


An obligation that Nice makes the most of by going decisive on the pitch, pressing on the flanks with a 4-4-2 hybrid, where Thuram, son of Lilian, from the left wing can wedge himself towards the host area. The first two are born from him, and perhaps the only real opportunities, if not of the match, at least of the first half. And up to Delort’s goal in the 43rd minute of the second half. The 21-year-old first triggers the action that brings Gouiri to a conclusion from the left corner of the Navas area. Then the one that allows Gouiri again to try the right to turn, which ends up at the bottom of a breath. All in 6 ‘with the intermediation of Dolberg. The PSG then seizes the ball with the dribble of Neymar and Verratti, but does not react, not finding useful outlets, also because of the uninspired Messi. It is Diallo who tries, but only at 45 ‘with his head, from a corner of a Di Maria who has never played.

The final

And if the recovery does not offer great emotions, the ending remains on the edge. So the twist is prepared by the changes Galtier, the coach who last year with Lille blew the title at PSG: out of Kluivert for Boudaoui, Thuram for Stengs and Dolberg for Delort. The first recovers on Neymar and triggers the second, who flies to the left for the cross on the opposite post. Where Delort counter-leap punishes Navas on the edge of the pole. One to zero, as a warning to PSG: “Disappointed, but now let’s think about the next one”, Pochettino cuts short at the end of the match. Below with Real.
