Champions League: professional work for the easy PSG winner of Porto

2021-11-18T21:51:42.846Z

PSG, who already had a 14-goal lead at the break, made short work of the Portuguese from Porto this Thursday evening in the Champions League. Pa



It was not the most flashy poster of this endless and tedious group stage of the Champions League which will lead PSG until the beginning of spring.

But lately Portuguese handball has caused enough misery for the French handball to be wary of it.

To get rid of Porto this Thursday evening and remain in a good position in the tournament, PSG have been serious and diligent.

And it has imposed itself very widely.

THEY WERE HUGE!


What a Parisian victory in @ehfcl

The game

When the PSG decided to be strong, it is almost unbeatable.

Porto noticed this very quickly.

The Portuguese were suffocated from the start by the power of Paris and the intractable efficiency of its defense.

The Lusitanians only managed to score three goals in the first 20 of the game, stumbling each time on a Vincent Gérard of the great evenings.

Suspense?

But what suspense?

PSG broke it in the bud by quickly distancing itself.

At the break, Porto had scored only 4 (!) Goals and PSG had 14 ahead (18-4).

It was cooked, folded and wrapped.

Suffice to say in these conditions that the second period was only a long quiet river for Parisians assured of a clear victory and absolutely flawless 33-19.

The player

Vincent Gérard.

He was criticized a lot last season, including when he kept the goals for the France team.

But becoming Olympic champion erased these remarks and the future goalkeeper of Saint-Raphaël is responsible for silencing them himself.

He's been almost perfect since the start of the season.

This Thursday, he again erected a wall in front of his cage succeeding nearly 70% of stops in the first period.

To the point of ending up disgusting the Portuguese attackers.

He has just scored his 700th goal with Paris in @EHFCL!

Thank you @ MikkelHansen24

The number

700.

Whatever happens in the future of PSG starting next season, this man will be missed.

In a few months, he will celebrate his 10 years at PSG, a rare loyalty in high level sport, especially when you are one of the best players in the world and in history.

Before returning to his country Denmark and Aalborg and if it was still necessary, Mikkel Hansen still left his mark on Paris by scoring the 700th goal of his Champions League career with the club from the capital.
