After convincing away victories, Liverpool and PSG are practically in the quarterfinals of the Champions League after the first matches.
There was no Neymar last night in Barcelona, but there was no drama, on the contrary, the Parisians “conquered” the Camp Nou for the first time in the history of the club and after the introductory match of the eighth finals practically signed tickets for the quarterfinals of the Champions League.
A similar scenario was read in Budapest, where Leipzig had to host Liverpool, but it was not “prescribed” for him to send the English great with gifts with two cardinal mistakes (0: 2).
With a hat-trick, Killian Mbape was a cruel executor of the great actions of his teammates, who in the heart of Catalonia could even more convincingly than the final 1: 4 actually show how organizational, playing and personnel crisis Barcelona is.
It is clear that, despite the unusual history of European duels in the last decade, Barça will not have any new tricks in the cards that have long been “broken”, read and so badly distributed that they will be happy in the Catalan giant if they do not experience even greater cannonade in the return match in Paris. .
In fact, only until the justifiably awarded penalty in the 25th minute and Messi’s fifth goal to Paris, Barcelona acted as a team capable of creating a result at home theoretically optimal for tactical corrections in favor of a positive epilogue at the end of the match.
PSG players did not seem deconcentrated even when Dembele shot badly from a good position three minutes later, on the contrary, aware of physical and speed supervision, they continued to press the midfield of Barcelona, expand the game diagonally and use the defensive non-obligation of Messi, Griezmann and Dembele to the maximum.
Just after one diagonal, Kurzava lost to Verati from the first, his solid dog, the newly recovered Pike, missed his head, which was a gift for Mbape, who turned Lengle on the “five-pointer” and announced the evening that Parisians have been eagerly waiting for for the last ten years.
The “saints” acted impressively in the maneuver: with strength, speed, game without the ball with a lot of crossings, they tied the Barcelona midfielders in a knot, who were constantly one step late on the pass, running, placing in the last line „
Florence, as a right back, in the 65th minute, cunningly crawled into the last line of Barca’s defense, he used an excellent pass in the depth to honor Mbape, who simply does not miss a goal.
Even after the result reversal, PSG continued to put pressure on physically helpless, some exhausted players such as Busquets, Pique and Lengle, and five minutes later, after a great break by Paredes, Ken hit the helpless Ter Stegen with a header, who, despite receiving goals, was and among the better individuals of Barcelona.
Mbape’s third goal in the match, 111th in total in the Paris jersey (the third scorer in the history of the club), was only the crown of the demonstration exercise of performing the transition from three passes for a routine chess-checkmate.
Due to the new strain of the corona virus in England, Leipzig could not host Liverpool in Germany, but it was an even better host in Budapest.
Although the English were of better quality, the question is whether they would have returned to Liverpool victoriously if first Sabizer did not honor Salah, and then Mukiele Mane for the capital 0: 2.
