PSG won their league game against RENNES but the game didn’t go as expected by the standards of PSG.
Mbappe scored the only goal of the match in the 93rd minute with Messi giving the assist.
PSG had a very poor game especially in the second half. There was no penetration from the midfield to attack as Parisians were struggling alot with their passing. On the other hand RENNES had a great game as they defended well and had more clear chances than PSG.
An interesting stat is that PSG had only one shot on target in the whole game and that shot resulted in a goal.
PSG’S performance was very poor and they lacked the spark and intensity in their game. Mbappe missed many chances with youngster Xavi Simons missing a sitter.
This is the story of the season in a nutshell for PSG. They have won many games in the dying minutes this season.
This time it was Messi’s assist and Mbappe’s goal that provided them the victory.
On 15th February PSG will face Real Madrid in UCL round of 16 and if this PSG side comes up to that game with the character they showed today, then they are going to find it very difficult to get past the Spanish giants.
