Ligue 1: PSG opens the scoring against Bordeaux (1-0)February 9, 2019
It's over ! PSG wins 1-0 after a very dull match. Edinson Cavani scored the only goal of the match on penalty late in the first period, but also hurt himself by hitting and was forced out. An additional injury to PSG at three days of a Champions League match against Manchester United.
Thomas Tuchel had nevertheless turned his staff, leaving Kylian Mbappé on the bench and bypassing several other executives (Marquinhos, Di Maria, Draxler, Bernat). In a game without much pace, where Bordeaux has never worried PSG, Thomas Tuchel players have missed several times, before opening the scoring late in the first period.
With a powerful strike, Edinson Cavani scored on a penalty kick, but was also injured in the thigh. Forced to leave his partners, the Uruguayan is now uncertain for Tuesday's Champions League match. While Neymar will be out and Marco Verratti has just returned from injury, the PSG coach may have to tinker with his squad.
In the second half, the Parisians still lifted, seeming mostly want to avoid the injury. Teammates Kylian Mbappé came into play, only shot twice in the second half. Far too imprecise in their passes, the Bordeaux have almost never put in trouble their opponents. Only Francois Kamano, with a nice curling shot, forced Gianluigi Buffon to relax to make his only stop of the match.
Fifteen minutes from the end of the match, the Parisians had to face another injury, that of Thomas Meunier. Hit in the head during an aerial duel, the lateral left the lawn a few moments later, feeling dizzy. PSG has certainly won this match, but will have mostly lost his second striker on injury, while a decisive match against a team in great confidence is looming.
