Hopefully they will not serve as an example to their elders. This Wednesday afternoon under the sun of the camp of the Loges, it is by a reverse that the Titis of PSG began their campaign of Youth League, the Champions League of under 19 years.
A few hours before the entry of Verratti and his band on the lawn of the Park, everything had started rather well for the Parisians in this 7th edition of the continental event. Last season, Loïc Mbe Soh and his partners had managed to take the advantage on the scoreboard after a rather closed first period against Madrilenian quarter-finalists.
After having interposed a first time on an attempt by Adil Aouchiche in a closed corner (24th), Lopez Andugar sealed Real by getting the ball by a Xavi Simons who did not ask so much to open the mark a cross shot from the left (43).
Two goals in two minutes
But the euphoria lasted only the time of the rest for the troops of Stéphane Roche. As soon as the locker room came back, the Spaniards reversed the situation in two minutes. First on a strike from the left of Jordi (49th), then on a magnificent cross volley uncrossed Gonzalez (51).
Under the eyes of the sons of Thiago Silva, the Parisians will have the opportunity to put the two teams equally. But neither the Muinga shot, returned by the post, nor that of Aouchiche repulsed by the goalkeeper (62nd), any more than the flat foot of Mbe Ssoh (75th) or Touati's pivoting shot (86th) will find the path of the nets.
