Paris Saint-Germain won at home against RC Strasbourg on Wednesday evening. The Parisians got ahead, but thanks to a red card for a frustrated Neymar, things got into trouble. Finally, PSG still win the victory in extra time thanks to Kylian Mbappé.
PSG, leader in Ligue 1, was released with a fright against the small RC Strasbourg. And that has everything to do with Neymar’s cures. The Brazilian had clearly not yet properly processed the early exit at the World Cup in Qatar and ran into a stupid red card: he took two yellow cards in two minutes. One for a deliberate blow to the face of an opponent, a second for a fake dive to decorate an unjust penalty kick. The stoppers of the Brazilian completely went through and went nose to nose with the referee, among other things.
For example, RC Strasbourg, which has barely 11 meager points in the score, came alongside thanks to an own goal by Marquinhos. But in extra time there was redemption for the home team thanks to a penalty goal from Kylian Mbappé. The match ended 2-1.
Brand new world champion Lionel Messi was not there yet. He is still enjoying some rest after the long World Cup trajectory in Qatar.
