PSG won in Nice in a late match on the 32nd day of Ligue 1 (1-2). Find out what caught the attention of the editorial staff.


Barcola, executioner of the Aiglons

In the absence of Mbappé and Dembélé, unfit to play this meeting, Bradley Barcola has clearly taken matters into his own hands. And allowed the capital club to return to victory. The results of his match are clear. With a goal and an assist in the first period, then a red card caused at the end of the match, the former Lyonnais hurt the Niçois very badly. A superb evening for the 21-year-old, on the eve of the announcement of the list of players selected for the upcoming Euro. Will his good second half of the season convince Didier Deschamps? Response Thursday at 8 p.m.

Zague, the beautiful story

“I couldn’t have asked for anything better.” Questioned by Canal + after the meeting, Yoram Zagué did not hide his joy. The young Parisian, once again started by Luis Enrique in defense, delivered a good performance and above all scored his first professional goal, on a perfect serve from Barcola. All on the evening of his 18th birthday! Applied (93% of successful passes), PSG number 42 could have returned the favor to his teammate at the end of the match, with a perfect cross which finally led to a recovery on the post.


Lotomba, failed return

Five days after his team’s victory against Le Havre (3-2), Francesco Farioli decided to make a change in his eleven, giving Jordan Lotomba another chance. Not really the best idea, given the ordeal experienced by the Nice right-back. Suffering against Barcola, the 25-year-old is guilty of both Parisian goals. Author of a loss of ball at the origin of the opening score, then left behind by the Parisian winger on the break goal. Little in sight offensively, he gave up his place at the start of the second half.

Bard sees red

The Gym full-backs were not at the party this Wednesday evening. On the left, Melvin Bard was also in difficulty. Never reassuring, and discreet in its climbs. After seventy-five laborious minutes, the player trained in Lyon left his teammates numerically inferior, receiving a direct red card. His late intervention against Barcola broke the Gym’s momentum and definitively sealed his team’s defeat.

But where was Ramos?

PSG returned to victory, but Gonçalo Ramos did not find the net. Holder at the forefront of the Parisian attack, the Portuguese international did not exist during this meeting. Much too discreet, and never dangerous. Replaced in the second half by the young Mayulu, the Benfica striker has been struggling for several matches, after showing great efficiency in the heart of this second part of the season.
