The PSG resurfaces
PSG lived on the wire a little over a week ago. They had suffered three consecutive defeats, doubts settled in the squad and the season was faltering.
A tremendous comeback against Lille, with a heart-stopping final five minutes, brought Galtier’s men back to life, who was practically out when his team lost -, but two pieces of genius from Messi and Mbappé gave him a margin of maneuver that he practically did not have ten minutes to go.
This Sunday’s Clásico, which ended with a landslide victory for PSG by -, was the adrenaline rush the Parisians needed with nine days to go before they faced Bayern at the Allianz Arena. That meeting will mark the scale by which Galtier’s work will be measured, but what is indisputable is that the comfortable victory in Marseilles has restored the enthusiasm of the fans, who conspired with the players two days before in a training session at the Parque de los Príncipes that brought together more than .
viewers . PSG has resurfaced for several reasons. One of them is the return to Galtier’s system of three centrals, the same one with which he swept the start of the season and with which he passed over Olympique de Marseille for minutes.
With an added central defender and with the most compact team, PSG is much more of a team. This yes, without Neymar, that did not do act of presence by injury and will be necessary to see if it can be available against the Bayern.
Without the Brazilian, Galtier can add another midfielder and not split the team in two like when Messi, Neymar and Mbappé are on the field. Another reason to believe is Kylian Mbappé. The striker, with his double against Marseille, equaled Cavani as PSG’s all-time top scorer, establishing himself as the team’s great hope of coming back against Bayern.
Two of the three straight defeats for the Ligue leader, the third against Bayern as a substitute, were without the French international, who is in extraordinary form and breaks all records every week. The third is team union.
PSG, after beating Marseille, published a photo on social networks in which all the players were seen united, something that had not been seen for a long time. Avoiding last year’s debacle at the Bernabéu is an obligation and the footballers are aware of it. The Allianz Arena will hand down a sentence, but what is certain is that PSG will come into the fight against Bayern psychically strengthened.
