The PSG chain of victories, in Ligue 1 as in the Champions League, but all is not perfect within the team of Christophe Galtier.
At the start of the season, Paris Saint-Germain delivered absolutely perfect performances, such as against Nantes during the Trophée des Champions or on the lawn of Lille in the league. In recent weeks, with the fatigue that accumulates and the matches that follow one another, it is however less convincing. Against OL this Sunday, the collective performance of Paris Saint-Germain was not bad but on several occasions, Sergio Ramos’ teammates could have conceded a goal. On the L’Equipe channel, Ludovic Obraniak delivered his analysis of the start of the PSG season. And if he admits having been charmed by the Paris SG of Christophe Galtier on certain occasions, Ludovic Obraniak regrets the lack of use of the pistons Hakimi and Nuno Mendes as well as the sidelining over time of Kylian Mbappé.
Obraniak targets PSG flaws
“I saw extraordinary things at the start of the season: the Champions Trophy, the PSG match in Lille… I saw great things but in Lyon, no, it wasn’t great! I saw things that displeased me, the relationship to pistons that are never used, for example. Hakimi made 1500 ball calls against Lyon, he didn’t receive the ball once! The relationship between Messi and Neymar excludes Mbappé at one point because he overplays as against Lyon. I find that the non-use of the pistons makes you thwart your collective balance. The collective balance was more striking at the start of the season than now. analyzed Ludovic Obraniak, for whom Paris Saint-Germain has sometimes shown very good things, but who is convinced that Christophe Galtier’s team could be much more formidable if Hakimi and Nuno Mendes were better served by their teammates and if Kylian Mbappé reformed with Messi and Neymar a real trio. Rather than letting the two former FC Barcelona stars form what looks more and more like a duo in the trio.
