Xeka's jewel was enough

Lille was able to be opportunistic on the lawn of Bloomfield Stadium in Tel Aviv.

Dominated throughout the game, Losc got away with being solid defensively and relying on a flash from Xeka.

The Portuguese midfielder indeed scored the only goal of the part of an overpowered strike from the entrance to the area that shot Navas.

Botman-Fonte: Lille has regained its hinge

Le Losc was crowned champion of France in particular thanks to its defense. And the Fonte-Botman hinge did not take long to regain its automatisms. The two tauliers pushed back everything in their path and showed a lot of calm in the weak times crossed by their team. A serenity that has reflected well on their partners.

Hakimi and Wijnaldum seduced

Copiously hissed by the Israeli public, Achraf Hakimi did not seem to disturb.

On the contrary.

One of the summer recruits of PSG was striking on the right side by systematically making differences.

The Parisian game has thus leaned well in this direction but the efforts of the Moroccan were not followed by his partners.

We will also note the impactful entry of Georginio Wijnaldum in the 71st minute.

The Dutchman was able to bring his presence in the intervals and made his partners play well.

An entry maybe too late.


Paris has not made the weight

Private of many executives, such Mbappé, Neymar, Verratti or Marquinhos, PSG did not really exist in this Champions Trophy.

Between inexperienced young people and executives not really at the level, the club of the capital has struggled to destabilize Lille.

With a lot of waste in the transmissions and few real opportunities to eat.

Draxler, Icardi, disappointing frames

In this attack-defense configuration, Paris needed a link between the middle and the attack. And Julian Draxler was expected to disrupt Lille between the lines, offer solutions and provide good balls for the attackers. Except that the German, as often, hid and did not weigh on the game, even missing a big opportunity (75th). For his part, Mauro Icardi appeared very heavy in tip and touched few balls, creating no opportunity worthy of the name.
