(ANSA) – PARIS, JANUARY 23 – Lionel Messi’s return to the field after Covid, an ‘almost double’ from Marco Verratti and Sergio Ramos’ first goal (on his second appearance) characterized the Ligue 1 match that PSG , who had Icardi at the center of the attack, won 4-0 against Reims, bringing their advantage over Nice second in the standings to +11.
Messi, who started from the bench, took over from Di Maria in the 18th minute of the second half, and for him it was the first appearance on the field since last December 22 (1-1 with Lorient). Then he left to spend Christmas in Argentina and contracted Covid. Verratti scored a goal, the one who opened the scoring with a nice left foot, and propitiated, with his own conclusion, the own goal of Faes who deflected the shot. Verratti hadn’t scored in Ligue 1 for four and a half years, or since May 6, 2017 when PSG beat Bastia 5-0. Sergio Ramos scored the 2-0, then there was the own goal and then the 4-0 point with Danilo Pereira.
“I am happy for the performance of my boys – the post-match comment by the Parisian coach Mauricio Pochettino – and for the fact that Verratti and Ramos scored: it is always positive when a player who is not used to scoring many scores is scored. Mbappé? Nothing to worry about. ” On the other hand, Donnarumma and Neymar were absent due to injury, but PSG served poker all the same. (HANDLE).
