Ligue 1: already looking towards Barcelona, ​​PSG is content with a draw against Clermont

“We have important matches to come, but the most important thing is the next one,” said Luis Enrique before PSG-Clermont, this Saturday, for the 28th day, promising not to have his 11 against Barça on your mind. We didn't have to believe it... The Spanish coach largely turned around for this clash of extremes between the Parisian leader in the Ligue 1 standings and the bottom red, four days before PSG-Barça in the quarter-final first leg of the Ligue 1 champions. “Lucho” had notably lined up two 17-year-old titis, Senny Mayulu and Yoram Zague, or the young Spanish goalkeeper Arnau Tenas. “I don’t want any player who thinks about Barcelona. I want everyone to think of Clermont,” he added. In this case, his team, lacking intensity (and benchmarks), chased the score for a long time before snatching a draw with a goal from Gonçalo Ramos (1-1). An unexpected point for the CF63! It was Habib Keita who opened the scoring in the first half.

The pre-C1 turnover made by Luis Enrique did not harm his team's appetite for possession. Sterile domination, with a shot on target in the first period, the work of Hakimi (21st), who replaced Mukiele (13th). After taking N'Diaye's shoulder in the face, the former Montpellier remained on the ground. Except that once he recovered from this contact, Mukiele wanted to do it again! Too late. He complained to the medical staff, Luis Campos and Luis Enrique, before returning to the locker room, ulcerated. Astonishing... The Auvergne opening score was just as astonishing: with a poor intervention from Skriniar, Virginius put it back on Keita, who managed to strike despite Ugarte's tackle (0-1, 32nd). Paris tried to put a little more vigor, but like Mayulu, author of a good start to the match but who forgot to shoot in the ideal position (34th), it lacked bite. Or precision, like this volley from Soler (45 3). Without asking any questions, Mayulu armed from the entrance to the area and reset the counters to zero (45 5)… before the referee canceled the goal, because of a foul by Zague at the start (0-1 MT ).

No change of players on the Parisian side at the start, but a change of gear. More intensity, more aggressiveness, and the Clermont building seriously wavered, with numerous situations on the goal of N'Diaye, who notably intervened in front of Kolo Muani (62nd) after being saved by his bar on a deviation from Hakimi (59th), after a cross from Mayulu. Tenas, however, had to remain vigilant, as on this header from Caufriez after a corner (65th). But Clermont was suffering. 67th minute, Luis Enrique launched Mbappé, Lee and Marquinhos, the latter joining Jean-Marc Pilorget as the most capped player in PSG history (435 matches). Moment of history.

Paris continued to push, with a heavy strike from Hakimi repelled by N'Diaye on Ramos... who found the bar (71st). Mbappé followed but his header was caught without worry by the Clermont goalkeeper. Triple opportunity, still no Parisian goal... Which N'Diaye saw his confidence increase over the minutes and the saves, it's quite logical. The proof with this save on a beautiful header from Ramos (79th). But what had to happen happened: after relying on Mbappé, Ramos came to deceive N'Diaye from close range (1-1, 86th). Relief from the Parc des Princes. Paris wanted even more. Mbappé wanted more, he who missed the target (90 1). But Clermont held on to their little feat against a PSG turned towards Europe (1-1), Wednesday, again in Paris.
