Paris Saint Germain (PSG) worsened the situation of Real Madrid this season. In the opening match of the Champions League Group A preliminaries, Zinedine Zidane’s men lost 0-3 to PSG at Le Parc des Princes on Thursday (9/19/2019) early morning hrs.
Defeat by conceding three goals is clearly not unusual for a class of Madrid. Moreover, PSG did not lose his best players in this match. Kylian Mbappe, Edinson Cavani and Neymar Jr. are absent from this match.
Despite playing without three mainstay attackers, but PSG is able to provide fierce resistance to Madrid. Evidently, three goals were scored by Angel Di Maria (14 ‘and 33’) and Thomas Meunier (90 ‘).
From Optajoe’s record, this is the worst record ever received by Madrid since 2003. This relates to the inability of Zidane’s men to release kicks to the opponent’s goal through the open play scheme for the first time in the Champions League.
Seeing that, Zidane was clearly not happy with the way players applied the game on the gridiron. Moreover, Karim Benzema et al are unable to release the opponent’s goal.
“They have surpassed us in everything, especially what disturbs me is the intensity. At this level, in this competition, it is very complicated if you do not enter the field well. They have surpassed us,” Zidane was quoted as saying by LiveScore, Thursday (19 / 9/2019).
“They are good at creating chances. What worries me is seeing my team without the intensity needed. We know that the opponent will put a lot of pressure on us. We almost never enter the match. We only have two chances and make two goals, but VAR has put them aside, “complained Zidane.
“I do not like not to create opportunities with the players we have on the field. This is what it is. We almost never enter the match. I am not worried. Usually, we have a chance,” added Zidane.
