PSG played their first friendly of the pre-season against Le Mans. Ramos, who was not called up, did not play, but Achraf did. He made his debut with an assist and a 4-0 win for his team.
The 2021-22 season is taking shape. The new PSG are preparing to defeat all opponents and have already started their pre-season.
Pochettino’s side had no trouble at all in getting past Le Mans, their first opponents of the summer. There was a lot of expectation to see PSG live following the transfers of Ramos and Achraf. The former was not called up, according to the club, because he is not yet at 100% fitness. But the former Inter player did make his debut and he did so successfully: he made his debut with an assist.
Icardi opened the scoring after 12 minutes. He did it with a shot which was unstoppable for the Le Mans goalkeeper.
Gharbi, in the 35th minute, scored the second. Achraf picked up the ball and, after a dizzying run, laid it off for his team-mate to score at his pleasure. That’s how the game went to the break.
The goals in the second half took longer than expected. When everything seemed to indicate that the game would end 2-0, Fadiga appeared to score the third. Xavi Simons, who came on after the interval, added the finishing touch with a last-minute goal.
This PSG have just got off to a good start and is leaving a good taste in the mouth. There is still a long way to go, but this 4-0 win gives the fans their first joy.
