EXTRA TIME DRAMA HANDS PSG COUPE DE LA LIGUE TITLE

21 April 2018


A fantastic final at the Stade de France, has seen Paris Saint-Germain lift the Coupe de la Ligue for the second time in three seasons. However it didn’t all go PSG’s way as the first half was played out in a tight fashion with the scores level at half time at 0-0. The breakthrough wouldn’t come until the 78th minute when Lucas Moura went on a mazy run all the way through the Lyon half and chipped the ball from the by-line to find the oncoming Alvaro Morata who headed home to give Zinedine Zidane’s side a 1-0 lead.

Just when it looked likely that PSG were headed for the trophy though, Alexandre Lacazette temporarily rescued the tie for Lyon as Nabil Fekir flicked on a late Clement Grenier corner, to find the in form striker who volleyed home to level the tie again and take the game into extra time. However in extra time it was to be PSG who broke Lyon hearts as Bruma received the ball from Edinson Cavani before playing a fantastic through ball to the Uruguayan forward, before the former Napoli and Palermo player fired past the Lyon keeper to secure the Coupe de la Ligue Final.


PSG have now won the Coupe de la Ligue in two of the last three seasons under Laurent Blanc and now Zinedine Zidane


Tough loss there man.

PLAYER OF THE MONTH

CHARLES ARANGUIZ

In a month where we really needed players to step up and play for their place in the team, the Chilean midfielder has stepped up to the plate and delivered a 7.9 rating over his appearances. Has been given a chance due to injuries to players such as Dembele and Lemina and has been extremely impressive and has showed me why he perhaps should have played more this season.

MANAGER’S THOUGHTS

http://i1017.photobucket.com/albums/af298/Mg1001/Olympique%20de%20Marseille%20Manager%20Story/Uploads/59125d56-f5e8-4840-b0ca-92a5d93fea84.jpg

A worrying month that started with a poor result against Saint-Etienne off the back of that defeat to Lyon. We were really poor defensively against Saint-Etienne and they thoroughly deserved to take the three points. Honestly at that point I was thinking that Monaco would run away with the league title but their draw against Nice and our victory over Bordeaux has really heated things up. We’re still only a point behind them in the race and they have to play Lyon and Saint-Etienne as their final two games so if they slip up and we take full points from our remaining games we will have done enough. As for the Champions League, to lose the way we did against Barcelona was excruciatingly painful as the goal came after the minimum of 2 minutes added time but that’s football and it will work out for us in our favour sometime. We’ve qualified for the Group Stages again for next season and hopefully whoever replaces me at the Stade Velodrome will be able to do a good job in guiding this team out of the Group Stages and into the Knockout Stages again. Hopefully this time next month we will have won Ligue 1 after two impressive results against Lens and Nantes in our final 2 games.


That Belotti hat-trick has put Monaco in the driving seat, but anything can happen in 180 minutes of football!
Great bounce back after the loss
It's going down to the wire! What a win if you can pull the title win off this season!!
2016-05-13 14:55#231495 Justice : That Belotti hat-trick has put Monaco in the driving seat, but anything can happen in 180 minutes of football!

He was completely unplayable and Monaco are firmly in control of this now!

2016-05-13 23:45#231523 MJK46 : Great bounce back after the loss

Yeah just hope that we can bounce back completely and snatch the title!

2016-05-14 12:22#231536 Jack : It's going down to the wire! What a win if you can pull the title win off this season!!

It really is, but its going to be nerve wrackingly close!

What a beautiful sight that table is and if we can win next week then that table will stay with us at the top for the rest of time. We are one win away from becoming champions and after the disastrous form we seemed to be heading towards at the start of last month, to be sitting here with only one game left, one win needed it is brilliant. We have been excellent since the game against Saint-Etienne and although we might not have won the games 3-0, 4-0 etc. we have been brilliant, grinding out the results, whilst Monaco have slipped up that have put us in line for our first title since 2010. Hopefully we can win it as my parting gift to the fans, and I sincerely hope we do because we deserve it the way we have been over the last couple of weeks. Fingers crossed!


That next match will be HUGE. Don't screw up
Cliffhanger... cmon lad!
