Manchester City-PSG (2-1): "The Parisian team defends in a wobbly way", notes Didier Domi


Didier Domi, former defender trained at PSG (1994-1998, 2001-2004), analyzes the Parisian errors after the defeat on Wednesday night at Ma

PSG will not get out of this by conceding so many chances.

This is the observation established this Wednesday evening by Didier Domi, former defender of the club, after the defeat conceded to Manchester City (2-1) in the Champions League.

We have the impression that PSG had no solution against Manchester City.

Do you share this observation?


There are always ways to win.

They scored first… But City deserve their victory.

It's difficult for PSG because the players never defend across the board.

Tactically, the English were perfectly able to exploit the weaknesses of PSG.

We saw it on the sides: one against one, crosses… The first Parisian opportunity does not arrive until the 27th minute I believe.

It was one way.

Is the defensive behavior of the attackers (Mbappé-Neymar-Messi) culpable?

It is a problem.

We always have to have one that reaches the middle line.

When you only defend three across the width, it's too difficult.

Too often they have found situations of superiority.

Mahrez was found to be the opposite, he was alone and, at his leisure, he created danger.

With a mid to three, you need a lot of lungs.

Guardiola knew that before the game.

Was it even more difficult in the absence of Verratti?

Getting the ball out well is also a way to defend.

It allows you to breathe, to bring danger.

Whereas, there, we were permanently cornered.

We see it on Mbappé's goal that relays are possible.

It was the first real shot out.

Marco is able to get the ball out on his own.

And, there, we had too many problems in the midfield.

You have to play with your qualities and know how to adapt.

What is Pochettino responsible for in all of this?

With injuries, you can't take the ball out the same way, that's clear.

The team defends in an unbalanced, wobbly way.

We concede too many opportunities, situations.

It's too easy for the adversary to penetrate us.

This is the main line of work.

When Mahrez gets the ball back, we are already in the last 20 meters.

The first of the qualities of great teams is to recover the ball aggressively.

You always need 8 to 9 players as a block.

We were permanently outnumbered.

How do you analyze the match of Kylian Mbappé, still a scorer despite everything?

I would have liked to see a little more sequences, that PSG rule out the game. The speed, we have it with the side and Mbappé.

The occasion of the goal is sublime.

You always have to put your best players in the middle.

Without them, attackers have to win to find a three-on-two in midfield.

And then find explosiveness in the last 30 or 40 meters.

Nuno Mendes did it a bit but we should have seen it more often.
