In Paris begin to jump the alarms, because the team directed by Mauritius Pochettino does not answer to the requirement. This Sunday remained in tables against the Olympique of Lyon and sign his fourth 'prick' in his last five parties of Tie it 1. In the commitment in the Parc OL were missing Leo Messi, by fatigue post-Covid, and Neymar Jr, by injury, and the PSG confirms his labyrinth in which neither Kylian Mbappé achieves the answer.

'Donatello' comes being, precisely, the light in the middle of the tinieblas in Paris. The only able player to do something distinct, but against the Lyon was not sufficient to tie up the three points, the first of the 2022. A goal of Lucas Paquetá opened the marker and, in the second part, Pochettino revolutionised to his team with changes and Thilo Kehrer finished putting the tie. The PSG keeps on being victim of the drops, but also of his imprecision, fragility and minimum answer in the collective.

The Lyon imposed his law from the beginning. Paquetá Warned from the minute five, planting in front of Keylor Navas in a clear occasion that, with a tijera, the costarricense saved. To the second did not forgive. The local team began a contragolpe and the PSG did not achieve replegarse with effectiveness. Bruno Guimaraes enabled to Paquetá, so that it ran and crossed the balloon of right to left. They advanced to the seventh minute and to the ones of Pochettino touched them suffer.

The Parisians did with the balloon, whereas the Lyon expected the contragolpes to surprise. As it accustoms, Mbappé was being the point diferenciador of the PSG and brushed the goal in several occasions, with a played by the left that finish striking in the side of the network or a finish looking for the square that crashed in the stick. It tried and it tried, but it was not sufficient.

Revolution with changes, but insufficient

The PSG went back with command in the second part, but without a lot of clarity. The ones of Peter Bosz followed betting by the contragolpes and forced to Navas to work with a double occasion after one against driven by Dembélé that finish in a hand manually with the ex of the Real Madrid, the one who signed a paradón. The refuse finished in a new finish that it was blocked by the Parisian defence.

Happened the hour of party, Pochettino opted for giving entry to Xavi Simons, Kherer and Michut to change him the face to the party and, of some way, achieved it. The tie arrived in the 75', arrived an occasion by the left, with a centre that could not finish Simons or Icardi, but appeared Kehrer from second line to equalise the meeting... And allow to the PSG breathe and avoid a new catastrophe.
