Still's Reims confirms

Reims' unbeaten streak stretches to 14 matches in all competitions.

This is to say the incredible performance of this team and its trainer Will Still, which surprises week after week.

The Champenois had come to play and they did so at the Parc des Princes, unimpressed by the Parisian “stars”.

If they suffered a slack in the second half, the changes made by Still helped them finish better.

And to disconcert PSG in the last moments.

Balogun, the reward of perseverance

The English striker is Reims' major asset.

Powerful, Falorin Balogun weighed on the Parisian defense, with his incessant calls in depth.

Author of several strikes, he kept his lucidity to plant a goal in the 96th minute, after having dribbled past Donnarumma.

A remarkable goal, his 11th this season in Ligue 1. Without doubt his most important.

Flips, Ito, the winning wings of Reims

Alexis Flips and Junya Ito made the Parisians suffer.

On their respective wing, the two Reims attackers made a lot of difference and actively participated in the successful transitions of their team.

Lively, technical, they also had this concern to make the right choice in the last 30 meters.

And stirred the Parisian defenders well.

The Reims bench also has resources since their replacements Van Bergen and Zeneli have also caused trouble in the opposing rearguard.


Paris worried before the big deadlines

In 2023, PSG has a series of worrying performances in Ligue 1. A soft collective, players not concerned, a festival of failed passes: the Parisians have once again made a pale copy against Reims.

Christophe Galtier does not seem to be able to wake up his team, which seems to have no real leader capable of bringing about a little revolt.

After a mediocre first act, the players of the capital showed the best, before having to evolve to 10 against 11. And to end up cracking.

A collective not concerned

While Galtier expected more overall cohesion, he saw none of this.

Worse, he himself seems lost, changing his starting device (4-4-2 flat) during the first period (4-3-1-2 by replacing Neymar in the axis).

His players seem in any case lost and little involved in defensive efforts.

Starting with the offensive players.

Mbappé and Messi struggled

Of the three in front, it was Neymar who came out the best.

More in legs, the Brazilian was not unworthy in the efforts and scored a nice goal.

Its partners cannot say the same.

Mbappé had a bad night, not putting enough conviction into his shots, while Messi is the unrecognizable player of the last season, missing easy moves and participating little in the game. The two men may be paying the Cup backlash of the world.
