PSG can say thank you Hakimi and Messi – Player debrief and NOTES (PSG 2-1 TFC)

Without shining, Paris Saint-Germain overthrew Toulouse (2-1), this Saturday, to consolidate their status as leaders in this 22nd day of Ligue 1. A nice goal from Hakimi and a kick from Messi allowed the PSG to win.

PSG can say thank you

Hakimi was son but against Toulouse (1-1, 38th)

Paris Saint-Germain continues after its success against Montpellier (3-1) in the middle of the week. On the occasion of the 22nd day of Ligue 1, the reigning French champion won a second victory in a row against Toulouse (2-1) this Saturday.

Without Mbappé and Neymar, Paris SG did not show a sparkling face on the lawn of the Parc des Princes. But Christophe Galtier’s men provided the essentials by consolidating their first place in the standings. PSG can have advanced points on Marseille and Neuf on Lens, depending on the day.

Hakimi responds to Van den Boomen

The Parisians settled immediately in the Toulouse camp but did not show themselves to be really dangerous. Only a shot over Ruiz, well offset by Vitinha, sent a slight shiver through the Toulouse defense at the start of the match. The Toulousains defended well and were very comfortable in the ball outings to try to annoy PSG. Better, the TFC even opened the scoring with a free kick from Van den Boomen (0-1, 19th)!

Very effective and saved by the post of Dup on a header from Marquinhos, the Violets then thought of making the break ten minutes from the break on a header at the far post from Abouklhal, an offside signal. But it was finally Paris who came back into the match as half-time approached with a superb strike from the left from Hakimi (1-1, 38th)!

Messi releases PSG

Upon returning from the locker room, PSG accentuated their domination against a Toulouse team that had always become less dangerous defensively on its rare offensive phases. And it was the capital club that took advantage in this second period. After a subtle pass which Hakimi did not take advantage of, Messi lifted the public at the Parc des Princes by placing a rolling shot between Dup and his right post (2-1, 58th)!

Dj not very intense since the kick-off, the rhythm came down completely after the second but Parisian. Fatigue was felt on both sides and the Toulouse team, despite a few dangerous situations, were unable to equalize in this part. After two important saves from Donnarumma and a post found by Messi, the PSG players could after their 17th success of the season in the Championship.

The score of the match: 5.5/10

A pleasant but unspectacular match. Both teams offered chances and goals on the lawn of the Parc des Princes, but the pace rarely gets carried away during this game.

The buts:

– On a full ax free kick, Van den Boomen shoots from the right and finds the lower left corner of Donnarumma’s goal, fig on his line (0-1, 19th).

– Touch on the right, Hakimi transplants in the axis and unleashes a strike from the left which comes to stay in the left corner of Dup’s goal (1-1, 38th).

– Hakimi strikes in the axis and slides – perhaps unintentionally – the ball towards Messi in an attempt to avoid an opponent. The Argentinian resumed with a shot from the left to place the ball between Dup and his right post (2-1, 57th).
