Defeated during Wednesday night’s match against Manchester City (2-1), Paris Saint-Germain, like its attacking trio, will only have managed to create few chances. This does not take long to attract criticism, especially those of Jérôme Rothen. With stats below those expected from Lionel Messi, Neymar and Kylian Mbappé, the Parisians will not have succeeded in worrying the defense of Citizens that only 7 times, 2 shots on target including 1 shot on target for a 1 goal from Mbappé, but no shot on target for Neymar or Messi, facing 16 shots including 6 on target for Pep Guardiola’s men.

Messi, Neymar and Mbappé did not exist

The former Parisian Jérôme Rothen, as a consultant on within RMC, has also mentioned his pre-match expectations vis-à-vis the Parisians. ” I did not expect to see PSG all at once transforming itself, with a Pochettino who puts something in place tactically, and respected by his players. I expected a block, very low, which plays the cons with its three attackers. “And I told myself that out of the three, if at least two were in good shape, as is currently the case with Mbappé, if in addition to him Messi or Neymar took over, then the PSG could make a blow on a misunderstanding, as since the beginning of the season in the League of the Champions ”.

Continuing then on a touch of disarray about the MNM (Messi, Neymar, Mbappé, Editor’s note): “The problem is that these three players did not exist, for a lot of reasons. Whether it is on investment, circuits, team cohesion, the pleasure of serving others… We haven’t seen anything on that ”.
