The shock of extremes. Friday night, Dijon hosted Paris Saint-Germain opening the 12th day of Ligue 1 Conforama. A meeting between a DFCO team with 9 clock points, the capital club, the undisputed leader with 27 units. Suffice it to say that before the start of the match we did not have the expensive skin of Stéphane Jobard's men. However, they were able to seize their chance against ogre Ile de France, who was composing without many holders the image of Marco Verratti or Thiago Silva, imperial since the beginning of the season in central defense.
While we were waiting for a clear dominance of PSG, the beginning of the first period was quite open. Dijon has acquired several opportunities. But the Parisians were more realistic thanks to Kylian Mbappe, well served by Di Maria (0-1.19e). The Parisians thought they had done the hardest during a strange break, played at a false pace. However, Dijon did not give up (5 kicks in the first MT) and ended up leveling before the break through Chouiar (1-1, 45 + 6) before doubling the lead thanks to Cadiz in the second half (2). -1.47e). If Parisians pushed to return, they were unsuccessful and lucky (Paredes, Icardi) against good training and multiplied offensives. The score didn't move and Paris lost for the third time in the season on L1.
Tuchel points out the shortcomings of his team
That while the Ile-de-France team had not lost since 25 September last (0-2 defeat against Reims). A bitter taste defeat for Parisians in the image of Thomas Tuchel, who did not hesitate to point fingers at his players without strongly criticizing them. "We were very passive in the first half. We lacked accuracy, rhythm. We played very passive, too passive. Not only defensively, also offensively. We didn't play together. We didn't play according to our game principles: in the second half, it was better because in the beginning we had to make three attacks and seventeen in the second. Maybe we don't deserve to be lucky today. It's a win for Dijon …. We had a lot of chances. It was possible to win in the second half.
Then, when asked if he felt betrayed by his men, the German replied: "I trust my players. This is never easy. I have a feeling that the break was too long for us. We are not used to having many days (between matches). Yesterday, training was exceptional. lose my confidence Can't just look at the results I know anything is possible in football This is never the best team wins Today we are the best team Dijon gave it all they played 100% We didn't play 100% This is the basis for a negative surprise for us. We must say that we are the best team today. But that is not how the best team wins. We thought it would be a little easier. If we had managed to score two or three goals in the second half would have been different. We are critical of ourselves but not too much. A reaction in the Champions League against Bruges is expected.
