AS Nancy 2-1 PSG

PSG conceded its first loss in L1 Ancelotti’s era, his second in three games, in Nancy.

Paris SG version Ancelotti has experienced his first defeat in the Championship of France in Nancy (2-1) and is now on a series of four games without a win in all competitions (2 draws, 2 losses), the second always behind Montpellier, at Cape the 30th day. The questions are now constantly increasing number of the tag champion stuck in the neck of the PSG since the arrival of new Qatari owners.

Ancelotti loses his Latin

And coach Carlo Ancelotti has not provided sufficient answers. The Italian had repeatedly said that with him no one was indispensable. It was not just words. “Carletto” Nancy has messed with Sakho and Nene on the bench and Thiago Motta and Alex in the stands! If we add these two players a Maxwell on the bench at kick-off, no recruits from winter transfer window was on the lawn early in the game! But that changed nothing. Worse, it is Nancy who finished the game strong with a goal of Mollo (already decisive passer on the first goal) for the victory in the 89th minute, when, against a loss generated by a ball Maxwell, Mollo s relies on Moukandjo who procrastinate facing Bisevac and found his teammate at the edge of the area. Mollo then beat Sirigu with a shot along the ground far from overpowering that fits into the side netting opposite without the Italian goalkeeper could intervene. Armand had indeed helped to reduce the brand Sissoko after the break (49th) at once determined the skull, but it was not enough to a cowardly Paris late in the game. Say that the “money-time” was the specialty of PSG far …

The wrong operation is not so bad, yet, in terms of ranking points for PSG, still tied behind Montpellier units. But in terms of image, the situation is terrible for a club that has spent about 100 million euros in the transfer market in summer and winter. Montpellier and now has everything to gain with his game shifted to April 11 against a Marseille haggard. And PSG has not prepared its best clasico at Parc des Princes next Sunday against OM by adding a ton of pressure with this unexpected setback …

PSG 1-1 Bordeaux

PSG was hooked by the Girondins de Bordeaux at the 29th round of Ligue 1 (1-1).

PSG could not do better than return to the last minutes of his duel with Bordeaux to catch the point of the tie tonight. The players of Carlo Ancelotti, barely able to create danger in the first period, came back with better intentions after the break but were unable to be pushing this team to Bordeaux, which can be satisfied with her game. Tonight, Montpellier asleep first.


This 29th day was a test more for the PSG version of Carlo Ancelotti, and the least we can say is that Parisians are far from taking the exam with flying colors. Bickered with training Bordeaux well applied in its ground grid and pressing, the Parisians have long doubted. Unable to make their last few phases of possessions, they have mainly evolved and offered against a face that recalled without a doubt the team coached by Antoine Kombouare in the first half of the season.

The fault probably the game plan chosen by the Italian technician, who has aligned his team in the 4-2-3-1 who had the happiness of the capital club in the early months of the championship. Unfortunately, this is a version of PSG end of the year 2011 who worked in the field. Cut in half, too slow in its transmissions and unable to fast connections between these lines, Paris had to settle on the danger of creating kick bones. And Alex could have opened the scoring with an excellent service Nene if his gesture had not failed application (29th).

A strong opposition

The Girondins themselves, were collectively consistent. First the grid in their field and their laundry, which has paused serious problems for defenders of Paris. Then in their game plan, which largely sought Trémoulinas on the left wing. The French side has stepped up spills in the first period, creating a huge opportunity for Plasil, frustrated by Sirigu at close range (31 ‘). After the break, Paris returned to a more Italian since Matuidi to replace Jeremy Menez and allowed his team to use training in Christmas tree so dear to Carlo Ancelotti. And the impact is immediately felt, particularly with Sissoko, who, in a more advanced position, sent a superb volley narrowly finally diverted by an alert Carrasso (48th).

Faced with this tactical change, Bordeaux had a harder time setting foot on the ball and play advantage on the wings to create chances. This is also an acceleration of Maurice-Belay Plasil right side that has had the opportunity to send a superb strike from the right on cross Sirigu (72nd), which was completely beaten. In the last fifteen minutes, Bordeaux took advantage of the speed of his attackers to sanction improper alignment of the defense of the PSG, which was up a notch. And Maurice-Belay, very active throughout the meeting, was based only on goal before offering a caviar Diabaté, who pushed the ball into the empty goal (77th). It is precisely at this point that the PSG reagent version 2012 has demonstrated, through a brilliant backheel Bodmer, who has helped to give Hoarau the two teams level (81st). However, it is Bordeaux, which came out satisfied with the match having taken the point of zero. For PSG, who lost the championship lead in goal difference against Montpellier, it is time to take action.

Realism Lyon

In a near-full Parc des Princes, the shock of the quarter-finals of the Coupe de France went on a round of observation of a quarter of an hour. In the 19th minute, Mr. Turpin meets the referee whistles of a very severe penalty for the Parisians. Umtiti against a ball of Menez but his arm is glued to the body. Nene transforms without trembling. 6 minutes later, it is the Lyonnais who enjoy a good kick to 23m. Kim Kallstrom rushes and found the top left corner of Nicolas Douchez (1-1, 25th).

This first period is very tactical and teams are grouped. Lead tries, but gives Gameiro hitting the attacker is captured by Lloris. Lyon then took the lead. On a nice move, Lisandro Lopez at the back post includes the ideal center of fleeing Kallstrom (2-1, 39th). Just before halftime, Nene the ball to equalize but his shot was again captured by the French keeper.

Paris has tried everything in vain …

Carlo Ancelotti decided to come into play Javier Pastore from the restart. With immediate effect since the second half was one-sided in favor of Paris. From the 51st minute and a powerful shot from Jallet diverted by Lloris, waves of attacks in Paris will not stop. Players of the capital are bending Rhodaniens and Hugo Lloris gloves that heat. Lead and Pastore particular abut the captain of France. With experience, men of Remi Garde let through the storm.

Doubt and nervousness gradually settled in the heads of the premises. Lisandro and the inevitable misses on match point against a clear (68th). An action that could be costly for Lyonnais. In the last quarter of an hour, Parisians have no chances. They have given everything. A 3 minutes remaining, Michel Bastos took advantage of the Parisian Christophe Jallet and mowing the Brazilian in the surface. The penalty kick is awarded and entered by Bafétimbi Gomis (1-3, 91st). The third goal is anecdotal, Lyon finally brings down Paris hitherto invincible in 2012. A lesson in realism and achievement. Paris has nothing to regret.
