Fans of Paris Saint-German are gradually fuming about the inconsistency displayed by Thomas Tuchel the manager of PSG and his squad rotation.
PSG ranked as one of the traditional teams to win the French Ligue 1 have not played any consistent football both in the UEFA competitions and in the domestic league.
In their league fixture against Lyon at home, PSG as usual kept most of the possession but has just one shoot on target from three against the away team who had five on target out of which they picked their win.
The night was just not in favour for PSG as their efforts to press were all subdued by the Lyon defense. Tino Kadewere scored the only goal of the night in the 35’ after which Lyon defended their loan goal with their entire strength.
With PSG in a desperate position to find an equalizer, none seemed to materialize until in the 90’ when their pressure got intense.
An additional of 6’ was added to the time of play but went into 10’ due to some stoppage and VAR decisions. Neymar Da Silva Jr. was caught in a tackle by Thiago Mendez of Lyon in the 90+6’ which was supposed to be the final whistle.
Neymar stayed down injured as PSG were awarded a free kick. A yellow card was flashed to Thiago Mendez but did not take long for VAR to decide otherwise. Three minutes after Thiago was given the yellow card, VAR continues to access the foul and after the review, the referee decided to his previous decision of a yellow card to send Thiago Mendez off.
With both teams open to winning the game, Lyon managed to carve out the victory as PSG lost all three points and their talisman.
