Newcastle’s 1-4 crushing loss → Enrique was angry at the question “Is it difficult to coach PSG?”, “What does that mean?”
Coach Luis Enrique revealed his discomfort with the question asked of him.
Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) faced Newcastle United in the second match of Group F of the 2023-24 UEFA Champions League (UCL) group stage held at St. James Park in Newcastle, England at 4 a.m. on the 5th (Korean time). lost 1-4.
The second match of Group F, considered the UCL Group of Death this season, was held. PSG got off to a good start with a 2-0 win over Dortmund in the first leg. Newcastle was unable to decide the winner, drawing 0-0 with AC Milan. There was interest in whether PSG would be able to retain its leading position in the group by overtaking Newcastle, which had made a storm of recruitment following the acquisition of Saudi Arabia’s sovereign wealth fund.
First, PSG used the 4-4-2 formation. Hamus and Kolo Muani were placed at the front, while Mbappe and Dembele formed the left and right flanks. Emery and Ugarte were located in the midfield, and Lucas, Skriniar, Marquinhos, and Hakimi formed the back four. The goal was guarded by Donnarumma.
To counter this, Newcastle adopted a 4-3-3 formation. Gordon, Isaac, and Almiron formed the top three, while Tonali, Guimaraes, and Longstaff played as midfielders. The back four consisted of Byrne, Shea, Lascelles and Trippier, with Pope donning the goalkeeper gloves.토토사이트
Newcastle scored the first goal in the 17th minute of the first half. Isaac’s first shot was blocked by goalkeeper Donnarumma, but Almiron finished the ball without missing it. Newcastle attempted several shots in a mixed situation after the free kick in the 38th minute of the first half. Byrne’s final header shot was recognized as a goal by video review (VAR) and succeeded in widening the gap.
It was Newcastle who had the momentum in the second half. In the 5th minute of the second half, Longstaff, who received Trippier’s sharp forward pass, attempted a right-footed shot, which deflected off goalkeeper Donnarumma and was sucked into the goal. PSG scored a chasing goal in the 11th minute of the second half, but ended up losing 1-4 with a key goal just before the end of the game.
It was a disappointing loss for PSG. It is not surprising no matter what the result is in the Group of Death match, but when PSG suffered a crushing defeat, conceding 4 goals, criticism arose. Coach Enrique also expressed his discomfort when asked a question at the post-game press conference.
First, when asked if it was difficult to lead PSG, Coach Enrique said, “It’s a strange question. I don’t know what you want to ask. When you coach, of course there are difficult games. Our attitude was good, but the result was unfair. Still, congratulations to Newcastle. “I’m spreading the word,” he said.
When asked why he used this tactic, he said, “I am the manager and I make the decisions. We had a bad result in this game, but we have to keep moving forward. Our goal is to advance to the tournament. We were in a difficult group, but we still “We are in second place. The next games will be more interesting. We need to get better results,” he said.
PSG will play Stade Rennes in the 8th round of the French Ligue 1 on the 9th. Afterwards, they will enter the international break in October, face Strasbourg on the 22nd, and then play AC Milan in the third round of the UCL group stage on the 26th.
