PSG sank on Manchester City (0-2) on Tuesday evening, and the exclusion of Angel Di Maria, 20 minutes from the end, was fatal.
The PSG took the water all the way. Six days after his defeat at the Parc des Princes (1-2), the formation of Mauricio Pochettino, despite a good start to the match, took a first blow with the opening scoring of Riyad Mahrez (11th). The Parisians then sank on a second goal from the Algerian left-hander at the hour mark (63rd) of this semi-final return of the Champions League.
Deprived of Kylian Mbappé, too fair to play a single minute of the match, Neymar and his teammates could not ignite the last 20 minutes to save the honor. In the wake of Mahrez’s 2nd goal, Angel Di Maria has indeed received a red card after crushing Fernandinho’s foot. A bad gesture following a simple exit in touch (69th) …
Even the Parisian coach entered the field to calm his compatriot in the face of the intransigence of Mr. Kuipers.
