Hakimi sees double

Very prominent since the start of the season, Achraf Hakimi hit very hard this Wednesday, offering himself an unexpected double.

The Moroccan side, first opportunistic scorer at the start of the match, got PSG out of the Lorraine trap after extra time, by beating Oukidja with a nice strike from the left.

In all the good moves, the player recruited at Inter Milan this summer was able to compensate for his few defensive mistakes by an incessant offensive contribution, even essential for the club of the capital.

The Navas parade

It is clearly one of the turning points of this meeting.

In the wake of the Metz equalizer, PSG almost cracked a second time, but Keylor Navas pulled out all the stops by winning his duel in front of Gueye just before half-time.

Rarely used on the lawn of Saint-Symphorien, the Costa Rican goalkeeper succeeded in his return to the Parisian cage, under the eyes of Donnaruma left on the bench.


Bronn abandons his family

Metz can harbor enormous regrets. Red lantern in the standings, the Lorraine club has long caught the scarecrow of the championship, before giving in in added time. The final seconds contested in a numerical inferiority following the very avoidable expulsion of Dylan Bronn. Already warned, captain Metz received a second yellow card for preventing the Parisians from playing a free kick quickly. This gesture was expensive for the men of Frédéric Antonetti, also sent off during a very tense end of the match.

Wijnaldum in the hard

Liverpool's Georginio Wijnaldum is long overdue. Back in the Paris midfield, the Dutch international was still disappointing. Tackled several times by Mauricio Pocchetino in the first period, the 30-year-old did not weigh in the game of his team, whether in orientation or in his (too) rare projections. Logically replaced shortly after the hour mark, while PSG were looking for solutions to regain the advantage.

Nuno Mendes did not hold his lane

Unlike Hakimi, Nuno Mendes did not show off in his left lane.

Apart from a good cross to Icardi in the first period, the Portuguese international had a very limited attacking contribution.

But above all, he also left too much space for Gueye, who chained the raids on his wing.
