45th: It’s halftime! PSG lead 1-0 thanks to a goal from Leo Messi.
43rd : The floor is deep pass to Hakimi. Neymar chooses Messi who stalls against the defense.
40th : Damiao’s 70-yard attempt, Donnarumma whistles.
35th: : PSG plays 11 in the opposing camp, but still loses dangerous balls which puts the centrals in difficulty. Faced with real level C1 teams, you won’t have to do that.
31st: BUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUT FROM LIONEL MESSI! The Argentinian had already come up against a heroic defender on his line, but by dint of insisting the Argentinian ended up finding the fault. With a bit of luck since the ball was blocked. But it’s not luxury after everything the Japanese have released so far.
28th: BUT HE LEAVES THE MATCH OF HIS LIFE THE FRONT GUARDIAN! He first released a Mark Landers shot from Mbappé then a new shot, this time crossed from the Frenchman. Unbelievable
26th : Not to be confused with the Akita Inu, which is a little more imposing and it seems to be more of a pain in the ass. End of the canine parenthesis, still 0-0
25th : Since we are in Japan, have I already told you that I was the proud owner of a magnificent Shiba Inu?
22nd : We’re a little bored, I’m not going to lie to you, you know me.
19th: Gigio’s tap on a vicious half-volley! Corner for Kawasaki. The Italian imposes himself in his area.
18th: MBAPPEEE OUUUUH THE BIG OCCAZ! Superb service from Neymar for the Frenchman who stumbles on the Japanese team’s goalkeeper. We were not far from 1-0 there.
17th : Marcinho who crunches in front of Donnarumma! He had gone alone behind Hakimi, probably gone mussel fishing. But his open-footed shot in the box was a draw/20.
15th : Neymar takes his chance at 20-25 meters and looks for the opposite skylight… He will find the athletics track. The Worlds are in the States, not in Japan, Ney.
14th: Things are heating up in the Japanese area! Mbappé shifts Messi who shifts Hakimi, whose shot is diverted for a corner. Again, that does nothing.
13th : It does nothing. A little soft at the moment, all that. The climate is hot and heavy, that is important.
12th : Combination between Mendes, Messi and Mbappé. Corner for PSG.
11th : Gueye it’s not really that. Galatasaray level, I would say.
9th: Neymar’s powerful strike! It is repelled by the opposing goalkeeper. First opportunity worthy of the name for PSG.
8th : Good outing from Donnarumma outside his area, he had to dare, the Italian did it.
6th : It was enough to open it for the Portuguese to offer a gift to the Kawasaki attack. Fortunately Kimpembe is very authoritarian and pulls out a boss tackle.
5th : As a portista by birth, I know Vitinha like the back of my hand, but I hope you didn’t need more than 5 minutes to understand that it’s a little crackito.
3rd : But why neither Messi nor Neymar make the pass to Hakimi? It’s driving me crazy, we’re going back to the same basics as last year on the PSG side. There was a situation of counter with a perfect placement of the Moroccan on his right, but no, the Argentinian and the Brazilian are stubborn in the axis.
2nd : Heavy pressing from the Japanese team, Ramos does not panic and gets a goal clearance. Note that the lawn looks cool and that we start on a stadium with an athletics track, which is not great for the realization but I like it. It makes me nostalgic for old stadiums.
1st: Let’s goiiiiiiiiiiiiiii!!!
12:25 p.m. : Stadium full to bursting, it almost excuses the execrable carbon footprint of this summer tour of PSG (no).
Vitinha is a good starter!
11 a.m.: Yo footix! So we are in need of club football, we absolutely want our dose of PSG? Members of the Minutos hill, rest assured, in a burst of magnanimity we took the decision to deliver Paris Saint-Germain’s preparation match against Kawasaki Frontale, as part of Christophe Galtier’s men’s Japanese tour. The opportunity to spy on the first drafts of the new version of PSG, in the hope of finding a little more tactical coherence there than under Mauricio Pochettino. Ah, and we don’t forget Vitinha, who looks like a real thrill player.>> Start of the match at 12:30 p.m.
