Paris Saint-Germain welcomes Troyes on Saturday at the Parc des Princes. For counting this match for the 13th day of Ligue 1, the capital club won the eleventh victory of the season in Ligue 1 (4-3), but this is not the great joy in the ranks of Paris after final whistle

Despite the victory, the Parisians were afraid of the Aube club. ESTAC led the score twice thanks to a double from Mama Bald (3rd, 52nd). And after the first equalizer from Carlos Soler (24th), Lionel Messi (55th) had to take matters into his own hands to equalize with a missile from outside the area. Afterwards, Neymar (62nd) and Kylian Mbapp (77th) thought they would protect PSG from a stressful end to the match, but no. Ante Palaversa (88th) reduced the gap and annoyed Christophe Galtier.

Made by PSG too many mistakes

The three goals conceded against Troyes were a bit too much for the Parisian coach. After the meeting, the technician did not hide his dissatisfaction with his team’s defensive performance. The team was very unbalanced from the start, some had difficulty finding bearings, we won very few balls with high recovery, every time we went to the duel we were eliminated, leaving the boulevards Troyes . We reacted very well to the loss, which made our match difficult Galtier acknowledged.

On a defensive level, I saw too many trends, too many errors and even poor placement of set pieces. We need to fix it, work on it, we will spend more time on it continued the Parisian coach. I think we didn’t have a very good game, we made too many mistakes. We should have won this game more. We struggled, we should have defended better. We make mistakes and we need to make fewer mistakes slipped the center Vitinha, abundant in the direction of his coach.

Kimpembe in trouble

To face the Trojans, Galtier decided to fire Achraf Hakimi and Marquinhos, setting up Nordi Mukiele and Presnel Kimpembe. If the first one showed good things, the two goals still come from his side. As for the second, lacking rhythm for his first stint since his injury, he was at fault for the first two goals and showed a disconcerting lack of aggressiveness in the box before being replaced by Marquinhos on the hour mark.

But the Paris defense is not the only one to blame. The midfielder, good at the offensive level, sometimes too easily punctured. At times, we played very good football. In others, we didn’t defend well. You have to do both to improve perfect summary to Marco Verratti, before issuing a warning: It will be difficult to continue what we are doing now in a difficult way. Admittedly, we scored four goals, very good. But you can’t take all three home. We need to find a better balance.

C. Galtier – on if it takes four goals to win every time…

The imbalance of a game carried forward raises questions. Troyes clearly identified PSG’s defensive flaws on the move. The quick attack of the Trojans at every opportunity put a Parisian team in difficulty, and it was by taking advantage of the boulevards that ESTAC scored their first two goals.

For this time, the attack of Paris saw a false step in PSG. But the Ile-de-France team cannot always rely on the brilliance of its attackers to get through. If you have to score four goals to win every time, it’s going to be complicated , Galtier slipped. Especially against an opponent of another caliber in the Champions League. Four days before the decisive meeting against Juventus Turin for the first place of the group in C1, the Parisian coach knows what to insist on in the next days.
