It was a very decisive match that PSG was playing in Naples tonight. Especially since the defeat of Liverpool in Serbian lands, the Parisians could take the lead in case of victory. In the end, the two teams parted on a tie score (1-1). After a fairly balanced and poor first half, Juan Bernat opened the scoring just before the break (45 ‘ +2). The Spanish was well served by Kylian Mbappé. Enough to kill the Italians ?
Not really since on the return from the changing rooms, the locals rebelled, with several hot situations and some good interventions of Gianluigi Buffon. Thiago Silva was, however, going to mow Callejon in the surface. The referee indicated the penalty point, and Lorenzo Insigne transformed it perfectly (1-1, 62’). The score remained there despite new opportunities on both sides. Naples takes the lead with 6 points, like Liverpool, while PSG is third with 5 points, ahead of the Red Star (4 points).
After the match between Naples and PSG (1-1), Thomas Tuchel gave his analysis of the match in front of the cameras of RMC Sport. The former BVB was satisfied with the first 45 minutes of his troops, but remained visibly on his end after the second period.
“We made a good first half, the team was structured, we had a lot of dangerous opportunities, contacts in the surface of Naples, we lacked a bit of success in front of the goal, we had a lot of dangerous situations. In the second half we were too low, we lacked courage to defend higher, there was a lot of pressure from Naples”, he explained.
