Un failure of Xavi Simons in the penalties ape against PSG in round of 16 of the Coupe de France against a Nice that endured 0-0, even with Messi and Mbapp on the field.
The Nice arrived in Paris as second classified of Ligue 1 and as the only team that, in the League, had taken a point from the almighty PSG in Paris (0-0).
Of start Pochettino reserv a Kylian Mbapp, but he put on the field, before the loss of Neymar, a Messi who, for the first time, wore number 10 at PSG, since in the Cup the numbers go from 1 to 11 in the French tournament.
The Argentine star did not have the first chance until minute 44, although in the first half he was very active, being practically the driver of the team’s game from midfield, in the company of a Verratti who was the best of the match.
The Nice, a team very well built by Galtier, crouched down in defense while going on the counterattack with a great Kluivert who was about to put his team ahead in the 47th minute but Donnarumma saved.
In 54′ I went out to warm up a Mbapp who came in at 64′ for Icardi, fulfilling his 200th match in all competitions with the Parisian team.
The rival of Madrid in the Champions He had a lot of dominance in this second half but few chances, although Mbapp missed a clear one in the 90th minute in the small area.
And in the penalties… no matter what happened.. Marcaron los Mbapp, Messi, Bernat… Pero fall Simons. ‘Goodbye’, Cup.
