Paris SG – Quevilly-Rouen (2-0)
PSG: Sergio Ramos (33rd sp), Djeidi Gassama (54th)
The PSG Galtier version opens the season successfully. Les Parisiens, prives de cadres tels que Kylian Mbappé, Neymar, Marco Verratti, Nuno Mendes et Presnel Kimpembe, ont battu Quevilly-Rouen (2-0) ce vendredi après-midi, au Camp des Loges, pour leur premier match amical de l ‘summer. In a first period largely dominated by PSG, who controlled the game against the Ligue 2 masters, Sergio Ramos converted a penalty from Lionel Messi (33rd) to allow Paris to take the lead at half time (1-0MT). The young hopeful Djeidi Gassama, who came into play at halftime, doubled the lead thanks to a very good run of dribbles in the Normandy area (54th).
The Capital club flies to Japan on Monday as part of their international summer tour. Three matches are scheduled: against Kawasaki Frontale at the National Stadium (Tokyo) on July 20, followed by encounters with the Urawa Red Diamonds at Saitama Stadium (Saitama) on July 23 and Gamba Osaka at Panasonic Stadium (Osaka) .
Lionel Messi reassures Vitinha shows up
Lionel Messi was a starter for this first preparatory meeting from the start of the game. The Argentinian, who appeared physically sharp, quickly took control of the meeting by being dangerous (3rd, 8th, 12th) leading his team’s play, aided well by new recruit Vitinha. The young Portuguese also distinguished himself by making numerous mistakes in letting his game speed speak, enough to confirm big promises.
Galtier tests young people
During his official presentation, at a press conference, Christophe Galtier had promised: “My staff and I will be very present, we will keep a close eye on that. We all know the capacity of the Paris basin to grow and bring out young talents. We have the idea with the club to create an elite group so that I can observe young talents very quickly, we will have a very strong bond with the people of the academy.. It didn’t take long before the first youngsters showed up. At halftime, the new PSG coach switched all his players by integrating a lot of titis: Baldé and Najeh in defence, Zaire-Emery and Bitumazala in the middle, as well as Gassama and Yansané in the attack. Even in the starting XI, Dine Ebimbe was able to send perfect danger to the side, especially on the penalty caused by Lionel Messi, brought in thanks to the breakthrough on the right side of the young Parisian.
