PSG vs Juventus, UCL 2022 highlights: PSG 2-1 JUV as Mbappe double seals the win – The Indian Express

  • September 21, 2022

PSG vs Juventus (PSG vs JUV)  Highlights: Kylian Mbappe played chief tormentor as Paris St Germain started their Champions League campaign by beating Juventus 2-1 at home on Tuesday, their first victory against the Italian side. Mbappe opened the scoring with a stunning goal and added a second in the opening half before substitute Weston McKennie reduced the arrears after the break as the French champions’ level went down a notch.
PSG walk away with the three points after an electric start saw them 2-0 up within 22 minutes. Mbappe made the difference, but Nyemar looked sharp and on it – his assist for the first is likely to be the one of the best of the Champions League this year. Verratti had a great game in midfield.

As for Juve, they had an uncharacteristically weak game. Handed an opportunity to get back in it after their energetic approach in the beginning of the first half was rewarded with an equaliser, they quickly died down, and created precious little.

Big 2-1 win for PSG. Their first-ever against Juventus.
It’s over! @PSG_English began its European season with a victory 🆚 Juventus. 🔴🔵

PSG’s transition lands at Neymar’s feet, whose volley from point-blank range was saved.

Minutes later, another counter attack needed saving from Perin, this time from Mbappe.

Juve seeing more of the ball in the dying stages of the game. Loading the box more, but no credible attempts threat as we go into added time. 

The dangerous Vlahovic has not received the kind of service he should have.
Messi did not have the kind of impact he is known for on the big stage as he comes off for new singing Carlos Soler’s debut.
The midfielder latched onto a cross in the box with good control, and his shot is blocked by Verratti, and subsequent cross saved by Donnarruma.

Minutes later, Neymar sees a long range effort go wide.

Nordi Mukiele and Danilo Pereira come on.

Achraf Hakimi and Vitinha are off.
Messi gets into a typical-Messi position, sets up an inside-of-the-left foot long ranger, and shoots just wide.

Minutes later, he drove another long range effort right into Perin’s hands.

Juventus momentum is dying down as they make a perplexing change, bringing on midfielder Manuel Locatelli for striker Milik, whose aerial presence was causing problems in the PSG box.
The trio combine again as the Frenchman nearly had a hattrick. He ran through on Messi’s through ball, set up by a brilliant backheel flick from Neymar, but shot wide of the far post. Big chance.
Juve have come out of the blocks with energy and commitment in the second half. Their intent is exposing vulnerabilities in PSG’s backline, but also leaving the door open for counter attacks.

Intriguing 30 minutes coming up.
Cuadrado’s deliveries could challenge PSG. His whipped cross meets Vlahovic’s header, and needs a solid save from Donnarruma. Nervy for PSG now.
Allegri’s change pays off instantly as McKennie heads home. Short corner to Kostic, whose cross goes deep into the box, Donnarruma decides to come for it, beaten to it Colombian in the air. Bad defending from PSG.

PSG’s famous trio combine. Messi holds off challenges in midfield to slot Mbappe in down the right channel. The Frenchman goes for goal and hits the side-netting, but squaring it to Neymar would have handed them a sitter. Bad decision making from the striker.
Right from the start of the second half, Juventus have pressed higher up the pitch and looked to create. Kostic’s long effort needed an easy save from Donnarumma.

Down the other end, PSG break and Mendes gets past players down the left before slotting in Neymar, whose strike is saved by Perin.

Continued energy and intent to win the ball in midfield needed from the Bianconeri.
Juventus bring on Weston McKennie for Fabio Miretti in midfield. The promising Italian saw none of the ball. Will Juventus be able to control and create enough to come back?
Mbappe’s double has PSG ahead with a cushion at the break. Juventus have had no control or rhythm in midfield so far. The Bianconeri’s pressing has been weak as Messi and Neymar have dropped in between the lines keep PSG ticking.

Allegri’s side need a lot of work to undo the deficit. 
Mbappe runs down the left wing and shows his pace to get past Cuadrado before winning a corner. Messi’s delivery cleared wide before Verratti skies his volley.

Down the other end, Juve have a period with the call, but fail to create much in midfield. Barring Milik’s header, PSG undisturbed all half.
Neymar goes down after Cuadrado’s hands are on him in the box. Alleges a push. Referee waves play on.
Hakimi wins the ball in midfield and Messi, despite having an angle for goal, tees up Vitinha whose strike goes over the bar.
Seeing more of the ball now, but Allegri’s side are creating precious little. Cuadrado’s free kick is headed over the bar by Bremer.
Breimer gets booked for arriving late and fouling Mbappe. Sergio Ramos squares up with a few Juve players and gets booked himself. Prolonged break as Mbappe recovers.
Mbappe doubles PSG lead! Drops in between the lines, and scores with lovely combination play with Hakimi and Verratti.

2-0 to PSG.
Paris St Germain coach Christophe Galtier has joked that his side would travel on a sand yacht for their Ligue 1 trips after the French champions were criticised for using a plane to get to Nantes last weekend. A senior French railway (SNCF) official tweeted: “Paris-Nantes is less than two hours by TGV (high speed train). I renew my proposal of a TGV offer adapted to your specifications, for our common interest: security, speed, services and eco-mobility.” Quizzed on the matter at a news conference on Monday on the eve of PSG’s Champions League group opener at home to Juventus, Galtier said with a smile: “I knew this question was coming. “This morning we talked about it with the company who organises our trips and we’re looking into travelling on sand yachts.”
