Clean-sheet and exploit on peno, Donnarumma is the Parisian hero of the evening

At the Parc des Princes

After this short but very precious victory for PSG against Brest, between two Champions League games, we could of course have told you about this new extraterrestrial goal from Neymar – control of the right half-volley from the left – his 110th in the Paris jersey, which puts him ahead of legend Pedro Miguel Pauleta and ranks him fourth among the top scorers in the history of PSG. But given his form of wild pig since the start of the season, we believe that this is not the last time that we will put the Brazilian in the spotlight in our papers.

We will therefore keep some on hand. No, today we wanted to pay tribute to Gianluigi Donnarumma, author of a full match against the Finisterians and savior of his team on the penalty (well) struck by Islam Slimani at a time when Paris seemed in difficulty on each rise in Brest. Asked in the mixed zone, the Brest striker admitted half-wordly the quality of the gesture of the Parisian goalkeeper: “The goalkeeper made a good save but a missed penalty is a badly shot penalty. “At the microphone of Prime Video, the hero of the day was modest in explaining simply that he was” convinced “to be able to stop it. “I focused on the shooter and I was lucky to start on the right side,” he said.

We will note in passing this fault of sagouin of Kimpembe at the origin of the peno, completely glued to the lawn on the large bridge of Fadiga and who found nothing better to do than to tackle his executioner on the ground version Gouren (c is of Breton wrestling, bunch of ignoramuses). This same Kimpembe who, by the way, should have been expelled at the end of the match after a new tackle that was totally pressed on the foot of Cardona. In the conference after the match, Michel Der Zakarian could not believe it: “I am not saying that he carried out an attack, but he took Cardona’s shoe, the noise we all heard. He must take yellow minimum, minimum. But the referee says nothing. If it’s us, he takes a hit, but that’s Paris…”.

The miss against Juve is forgotten

But we digress, sorry. Gigio, then. This same Gigio who almost ate them a few days earlier at the Parc des Princes after a kamikaze outing against Juve for the goal of the Turinese hope. Overall in difficulty since the start of the season (since Madrid, some will say), the Parisian goalkeeper was finally with Neymar (and Danilo, it must be admitted) the great architect of the Parisian victory on Saturday. In addition to this sublime horizontal on the penis of Slimani, the hero of the Euro final saved the buttocks of his team a few minutes later by making a very nice reflex stop on his line. Certainly, he did not have to make a shovelful of rescues, but his parade on peno alone earned PSG two precious points, allowing him to regain control of Ligue 1 in favor of Lens.

We would have liked to interview Christophe Galtier during the post-match press conference, but the time had run out made us understand the club’s press officer. We will therefore be satisfied with that: “Gigio had the good idea to keep us in the game by making this stop”. Great. Still, to see the way the Parisian coach jumped from his bench after the penalty, there was perhaps a little more than just the satisfaction of an avoided goal. With this match and this clean sheet, the Italian goalkeeper will gain the confidence he lacked since the end of August and the real false start of Keylor Navas.

Confidence reaffirmed by Galtier

The day before, at a pre-match press conference, Galtier had insisted on reaffirming his confidence in Donnarumma, despite his air hole against the Old Lady. “We often forget that Gianluigi is a young goalkeeper (23 years old). On the goal of Juve, we noted a bad appreciation on his part on the trajectory of the ball but I also remember the two decisive stops. We talked about it together, I prefer to have a goalkeeper who comes out on set pieces. He has the technical quality, he has the jump. I don’t want this error to slow him down “, had chained “Galette”. These words seem to have had the desired effect. And this match against Brest may be the one that will mark the beginning of a positive dynamic for the Italian giant.
