In the 19th round of the Ligue 1 season, PSG was defeated at the Rennes Stadium by a score of 0-1 despite possessing the most powerful attacking talents.
Even though the player wearing the number 30 shirt did not have a lot of luck in completing, the Sofascore page gave Messi a score of 7.2, which was the second highest score on the PSG side. The champion of the World Cup in 2022 missed both of his attempts to score in the 19th and 42nd minutes by shooting high and hitting an opponent’s leg.
Neymar’s performance was similarly unremarkable. The Brazilian forward does not present a threat when playing on the left wing. The deep and compact defense that Rennes played created an environment where Neymar’s drop-off passes were ineffective.
After 47 minutes, PSG was unable to capitalize on their greatest opportunity. Following a cross from the right, defender Danilo Pereira entered the offensive play and headed the ball directly at goalie Mandanda from five yards out.
Mbappe and Hakimi, two players who had just returned from a vacation in the United States, were put on the field as early as the 55th minute by coach Christophe Galtier since the score was tied and there was little chance of breaking it. However, they did not have the effect that was expected of them. After allowing Rennes to play the role of the underdog for more than half of the contest, the match was decided by a goal scored by Rennes in the 65th minute. Hamari Traore took advantage of the cross from the left wing and fired a diagonal shot that goalie Donnarumma had no chance of stopping.
In the 69th minute, PSG had opportunities to tie the game. Mbappe confronted Mandanda after receiving a long ball from Messi’s own territory in the other team’s field. The World Cup 2022 scorer, on the other hand, did not dribble the ball but rather kicked it early in an attempt to put the ball over the crossbar.
Juan Bernat and Neymar both finished the match with a greater number of scoring opportunities. Despite this, Rennes was able to hold on to their 1-0 lead thanks to the heroics of goalie Mandanda and defense Rennes.
PSG’s defeat at the hands of Rennes is the club’s second setback since the start of the 2022-2023 Ligue 1 campaign. This is also their second loss in the last two weeks, following suffering a 1-3 setback at the hands of Lens on January 1. PSG is now in first place in Ligue 1 with 47 points after 19 games, although their lead over Lens is only three points. Rennes, on the other hand, was in fifth place with 37 points.
PSG received sad news, standing in front of the risƙ of losing pride for half a century
With the latest decision by the mayor of Paris, it’s likely that PSG will have to find a new home field to replace the Park of the Princes.
Since the team was founded in 1970, PSG has played at the Parc des Princes stadium. Before 2011, PSG was just a middle-weight team that didn’t do much. That changed in 2011, when Qatari money bought the club.
In 2011, the Qatar Investment Authority, which is a state-run investment fund, bought Paris Saint-Germain. Under the leadership of President Nasser Al Khelaifi, PSG is also doing very well at this time.
PSG spent a lot of money to bring back stars who could help them win in France and Europe. They also spent 85m euros over the years to improve the Park of the Princes. And it is expected that 500m euros will be spent over many years to fix up and expand this stadium.
The Princes’ Park yard has seen many ups and downs, including the rise of this team. It is PSG’s pride. But the truth is that PSG does not own the Parc des Princes. Instead, the city government of Paris does. ESPN says that Anne Hidalgo, the mayor of Paris, has decided not to sell the Park of the Princes to PSG, even though the two sides have been in talks about it.
Anne Hidalgo told ESPN: “We know where we stand. Princes Park is not for sale and will not be sold. This is a strong and clear stance. Here we are. Parisians will always remember it as a special gift.”
The PSG team was sᴜrprised by the decision of the mayor of Paris, because PSG had spent a lot of money over the years to fix up this football field. A spokesman for PSG said, “It is disappointing that the mayor of Paris wants the players, staff, and fans at this stadium to leave. At the same time, tens ofms of euros have been poured into this stadium to renovate a building that is more than 50 years old.”
“Even though the mayor of Paris and I had talked about buying and selling the stadium before, it is a shame that he chose to take away our home field. We will have to look for other places for the stadium to be built. PSG. We can’t put money into or fix up a stadium we don’t own because it could be taken away at any time.”
