“The worst thing since coming to PSG! There were too many pass misses.” … Lee Kang-in, who struggled, criticized for 5 points in ratings

PSG tied Newcastle United 1-1 at the fifth Group F match of the 2023-24 UEFA Champions League at the Parc des Princes in Paris, France, at 5 a.m. on Sunday (Korea time). PSG barely lost and gained seven points to rank second. Dortmund, which beat AC Milan, ranked first in the group, PSG was second, Newcastle third, and AC Milan fourth.

Lee Kang-in started. France’s “RMC Sports” and others said Lee Kang-in would start on the bench and Vitinha would start. Soccer statistics media “Huscoord Dotcom” also gave the same opinion. Contrary to expectations, Lee Kang-in was listed on the starting list.

Asked whether Lee Kang-in and Vitiña are in competition, Luis Enrique told a news conference in advance, “Good players can play together. Two players can play as wingers and midfielders, one in the center and the other in the side. One can play on the ground and the other can be in the bench. Both can start in the bench. Everything is possible.” He meant that he would leave open all possibilities and decide whether to select Lee Kang-in or Vitiña. There was no simultaneous selection.

Along with Lee Kang-in, PSG made up the starting list with Gianluigi Donnarumma, Luca Hernandez, Danilu Pereira, Milan Shkriniar, Ashraf Hakimi, Manuel Ugarte, Fabian Lewis, Kylian Mbappe, Randal Kolo Muani and Usman Dembele. Nordi Mukiele, Carlos Soler, Vitinha, Marco Asensio, Bradley Barcola and Gonzalo Hamus started on the bench.

For Newcastle, Nick Pope, Kieran Trippier, Jamal Lascellus, Fabian Cher, Tino Livramento, Bruno Guimarães, Lee Miley, Joelinton, Miguel Almiron, Anthony Gordon and Alexander Isak were the starters. Martin Dubravka, Loris Karius, Lewis Hall, Dunmit and Parkinson will start on the bench. There were so many injured players that the bench list was poor. 토토사이트

Lee Kang-in was at the center of the attack. He was located on the left side and came into the center to connect with Luis and Mbappe. There was Lee Kang-in in every attack development. Lee Kang-in scored a pass to his teammates who entered the space with a short pass. There were many opportunities, but no goal came out.

Then Newcastle scored the first goal. The main player was Isaac. In the 24th minute of the first half, Livramento broke through the PSG defense with an aggressive breakthrough. The pass was connected and Almiron shot, but Donnarumma succeeded. Isaac pushed the second ball that fell right in front of him, and Newcastle began to take the lead.

He tried to find a way by breaking through Dembele and Hakimi, but only to see frustrating progress. Basically, Newcastle were lowering the defensive line, but when they took ownership of the ball, they counterattacked quickly, and when they took ownership of the ball, they pushed PSG forward strongly as needed, bullying PSG. The first half ended with Newcastle leading 1-0.

The same trend continued in the second half. PSG mainly owned the ball, but failed to create opportunities. PS took a change in the 16th minute of the second half. They formed an aggressive formation by excluding Ugarte and Colo Moani and adding Barcola and Vitinha.

An aggressive 3-5-2 formation was formed. Lee Kang-in moved to the center of the right. He was involved in the attack situation, moving more freely than when he was on the left. Luca, Pereira, and Shkriniar stepped up as three backs, and Barcola and Hakimi were at the left and right wingbacks. Lee Kang-in, Luis, and Vitinha made up the midfield, and Mbappe and Dembele were in front.

Despite the changes, PSG failed to score a goal. Barcola consecutively seized good opportunities, but it was regrettable that he could not make the best of them. In the 37th minute of the second half, Luis Enrique left out Lee Kang-in and added Asensio, who recovered from his injury. In the 39th minute of the second half, Pereira was removed and Hamus was added. It was effectively an attempt to launch the last offensive by taking out the defender and putting in the striker. PK was declared when a Newcastle handball foul came out just before the end of the second half. The initial decision was not a foul, but the referee declared PK after video review. Mbappe, who played as a kicker, succeeded and the game was tied. The game ended with a 1-1 draw.
