A spectacular friendly match. Paris Saint Germain won 5-4 against Riyadh Season Team in a friendly match between the two teams on Thursday. The stars of both teams all put on a show, with goals from Cristiano Ronaldo, Lionel Messi and Kylian Mbappé.
Ronaldo and Messi top scorers
The meeting had started with a goal from Lionel Messi in the 3rd minute, thanks to a very good job by Neymar who distilled a ball from the outside of his foot (0-1, 3rd). A goal that starts a game where the stars of the round ball will meet. Cristiano Ronaldo had finally responded to the Pulga thirty minutes later, coming to transform a penalty he had himself obtained to equalize (1-1, 34th).
A penalty that will still leave traces on the cheekbone of the new star of Al-Nassr, after taking the fist of Keylor Navas in the head. The meeting will be even more balanced in the 39th minute, when Juan Bernat receives a red card for his tackle as the last defender. PSG will still come back thanks to Kylian Mbappé, who lets Marquinhos push the ball 2-1 (43rd) into the back of the net.
Sergio Ramos at fault then scorer (then at fault)
While the friendly match leaves little room for blows, a Saudi defender will come and wipe his crampons on the foot of Neymar, who obtains a penalty. A penalty totally missed by the Brazilian and easily captured by Al Owais (45th + 3). A few minutes later, Cristiano Ronaldo scores twice and comes to put his people up to PSG, thanks to a totally failed clearance from Sergio Ramos (2-2, 45th + 6).
Back from the locker room, the Spanish defender catches up well and cuts off a cross from Kylian Mbappé who had fun dribbling the entire Saudi rear guard before that (2-3, 53rd). Before Sergio Ramos is again the author of a fine defensive ball by intervening too late on a corner concluded by Hyun-Soo Jang (3-3, 56th).
60 minutes for the stars of each team
Obtaining a penalty in turn, Lionel Messi lets Kylian Mbappé take care of it and shoot him full axis under the bar of Al Owais (3-4, 60th). All the stars on both sides come out after this goal: Lionel Messi, Cristiano Ronaldo, Kylian Mbappé, Neymar and Achraf Hakimi will take a place on the bench. From where they will be very strongly acclaimed as soon as a camera shows them in close-up on the screens of the stadium.
On the meadow, PSG continues its race in the lead and Ismaël Gharbi will come to perfectly serve Hugo Ekitike in depth, who transforms without trembling by succeeding in his one against one (3-5, 78th). At the very end of the match, Talisca had fun sending a very nice shot from the edge of the area which deceived Danilo then Gigio Donnarumma (4-5, 90 + 4th). With this 5-4 victory, PSG offers itself its first ‘title’ of the year 2023.
