PSG beat bottom team under terrible pressure from home fans
PSG are having their worst time of the season after being knocked out in the 1/8 Champions League round against Real, despite having the advantage of winning the first leg and even scoring the first goal in the second leg.
This defeat could be seen as the end of the season for teacher and coach Mauricio Pochettino. Prior to that, PSG were eliminated from the French National Cup, while the Ligue 1 title was almost in hand with a difference of up to 12 points from the second team of group Nice.
Line-up for the two-team field
On the other side of the line up front, Bordeaux have faced a lot of difficulties this season. After 27 rounds, Les Girondins only won 4 times, drew 10 and lost 13 times. This poor result saw the former 2008 Ligue 1 champions plummet to the bottom of the table and must fight for every point to maintain his hopes of staying in the tournament.
PSG vs Bordeaux Match Results
Playing on the home pitch of the Park of the Princes, but the PSG players came off the pitch in a relatively heavy mood. With the exception of Kylian Mbappe, every home team player had to “suffice” the anger of the fans in the stands, after losing 3-1 to Real in midweek.
The tremendous pressure from the home team’s supporters made the PSG players seem to ‘outperform’. Bordeaux continued to create a string of good chances in the first 5 minutes, with two shots from Oudin and Hwang Ui Jo saved by goalkeeper Navas.
Lionel Messi and Neymar became the center of criticism from PSG fans. All the stands at Park of the Princes booed in unison every time these two superstars touched the ball
The gap between the top and bottom sides was nearly even as PSG played like a dream in the first 20 minutes, creating the conditions for Bordeaux’s players to press the pitch with force. Even so, Kylian Mbappe, the only player the fans support, has made the difference.
In the 24th minute, PSG organized the triangle at a rapid pace in the last third of the pitch. Messi started with a pass that touched Georginio Wijnaldum, putting Mbappe in a drop-down position to face goalkeeper Poussin. The young French striker finished well, making the Bordeaux keeper’s attempt to touch the ball meaningless and open the scoring.
The goal that broke the deadlock helped PSG get rid of the heavy pressure that had lingered from the start of the match. The home side at the Park of the Princes gradually regained control with individuals taking the lead and creating plenty of chances towards the visitors’ goal.
Missing many chances, Neymar finally found a goal to relieve the pressure in the first minute of the second half. Messi continued to score with classy passes that broke up the entire Bordeaux defense for Hakimi to qualify for the void. The ball was then passed to Neymar and the Brazilian’s job was too easy in an unattended position. Gap doubled for PSG in 52nd minute
The rest of the game was almost set, with PSG actively holding the ball to reduce the tempo of the game. The score was 3-0 fixed in the 61st minute with Paredes’ left-handed shot, after the ball had bounced off Mbappe’s earlier shot.
