If he did not score a goal or deliver an assist during PSG’s victory against RB Leipzig on Tuesday night (1-0), Angel Di Maria was still decisive by obtaining a generous penalty from the 9th minute of play, which was for him his only real opportunity of the match. Indeed, following the opening of Neymar’s score, the PSG players displayed a very sad face, appearing at times lost in the face of a team that came to play ball. If he had regaled his beautiful world by being decisive three times (1 goal, 2 assists) in the semifinals of Final 8 in Lisbon this summer, El Fideo this time missed his meeting, and has simply replaced in the 64th minute by Rafinha.
An exit that was obviously not to the taste of the Argentinian, who quickly showed all his frustration by running his nerves over a few bottles of water, even forcing Thomas Tuchel to take his head in his hands to try to reason with it. A surprising sequence to which many people on social networks did not fail to react. But this completely unusual exit from the road for the Parisian attacking midfielder nevertheless seems hardly surprising when one relies on the catastrophic start of the season for the players in the capital, at times more than worrying. One thing is certain, if the Parisians want to hope for a European course worthy of the previous one, this will require very different attitudes, on and off the field.
