PSG had a 1-1 draw at home against Newcastle of England in the fifth round of Group F of the 2023-2024 European Champions League group stage at Parc des Princes in Paris, France on the 29th (Korea time). It only gained one point at home, but it was a performance that required a sigh of relief rather than regret. PSG was trailing 0-1 right before the end of the match, but scored a dramatic penalty kick in the extra time of the second half. Team ace Kylian Mbappe calmly pushed to save the team.
South Korean midfielder Lee Kang-in started. Earlier, local media in France predicted that Portuguese midfielder Vitinha would start in place of Lee Kang-in, reversing this and Lee Kang-in got a chance. Lee Kang-in did not play in the 13th round of the league against AS Monaco on the 25th. Ahead of the match against Newcastle, he had time to supplement his physical strength and prepare for the game.
However, Lee’s performance had mixed reviews. Statistics media gave Lee a good rating, but some local media criticized him. First of all, the European soccer statistics website Fuscoord.COM gave Lee a 6.79 rating. It was a normal score. Manuel Ugarte of Uruguay, who played with Lee, had a 6.86 rating. Another statistical media outlet, Footmob, gave Lee a high rating of 7.3. The Sofa score was also good at 7.5.
However, 90MIN, which specializes in soccer, said Lee lacked vitality as a midfielder. However, his ability to own the ball was excellent. He failed to make influential contributions in the final third region. In addition, he gave Lee a low rating of five. 에볼루션 바카라사이트
PSG coach Luis Enrique brought up a 4-3-3 formation on the day. Lee Kang-in served as left midfielder of the team’s waistline. He played for a total of 82 minutes until he was substituted for PSG Spain striker Marco Asensio in the 37th minute of the second half. With 94 non-touch innings, he posted a pass success rate of 93 percent. He also inserted key pass once.
He added to his defense by securing four tackles. At the 13th minute in the first half, Newcastle’s Miguel Almiron had a critical chance, but Lee Kang-in attempted a tackle right before Almiron fired a shot and cleared the ball. It was a fantastic defense, almost like scoring a single goal. However, he missed three shots.
Lee Kang-in missed three shooting chances, but all of them were not easy. In the 4th minute of the first half, Lee Kang-in attempted a volley shot after seeing a cross from Usman Dembele. However, it was missed. The opposing defender narrowed the angle to not give Lee Kang-in a chance to shoot. The shot in the 30th minute of the first half was caught on the wall of Newcastle’s defense. In addition, Lee Kang-in’s volley shot was missed in the extra time of the first half. In the end, the game ended without an offensive point.
However, the PSG was the most sluggish on the day. He only scored one goal even after recording 31 total shots. That was also a penalty kick goal that he garnered at the end of the second half. French trio Mbappe, Randal Kolo Muani and Usman Dembélé, recorded a whopping 11 shots. However, they did not earn much money. Mbappe had five shots and Dembélé missed six shots. Kolo Muani did not have a single shot.
“I struggled to influence the game, but it was a quiet night. I passed a sharp pass to Dembele to give him a chance to shoot. But that was it,” 90MIN said of Colo Moani. “I put a lot of effort into it on the right side. But I wasted a lot in the final third.” Both players had five ratings.
