LIVE - Pays de Cassel-PSG: Paris on the move, Mbappé signs a hat-trick

Danilo warms up with the linesman

It’s surprising from Danilo who seems to get angry with the linesman on a tough duel with Meganase. The Portuguese was waiting for a sanction.

Pembele misses his center

Found on the right, Pembélé centers without looking but it is very badly adjusted… and no Parisian was in the center.

The corner for the Northerners

First corner in this match and it is for the players of the Pays de Cassel! It is hit at the near post but it is returned easily.

Bernat comes into play

First change for PSG with the entry into play of Juan Bernat. He replaces Nuno Mendes, so it’s job for job.

Here we go again for the second period!

Christophe Galtier will surely make changes in this meeting to rest his executives.


It’s the break at Bollaert-Delelis! The mass is almost said in this round of 16 between PSG and US Pays de Cassel since Paris leads 4-0 after 45 minutes of play. Kylian Mbappé scored a hat-trick, Neymar joined the party with a goal .


Vitinha carries the ball and goes deep with his left foot for Mbappé who finishes the job with a little dive with his left foot! Samson is defeated for the 4th time!

Neymar misses a huge chance

Very well launched in the area by Mbappé, Soler crosses hard at the far post for Neymar who sends the ball into the stands! In his defense, there was a small bounce before his shot.


3-0 for PSG with a double from Mbappé! Opening of Danilo for Mbappé who finishes the work of a magnificent lob on Samson!


Paris escapes the score in a few minutes with a one-two in the surface of all beauty! Neymar chained the hooks and feints of strike and finished the work with the left foot, 2 to 0!

Neymar misses the target

Neymar will take the free kick at the entrance to the area but his shot goes well above! He gets booed by the crowd!

Yellow card for Bruneel

Neymar goes against and sinks into the area but he is stopped just before by a tackle from Bruneel! Yellow card !


This time it’s good for PSG and it took a dazzling Nuno Mendes! The Portuguese overtakes two players and serves Mbappé who puts the flat foot. It is countered and the trajectory deceives Samson! 1 to 0!

Neymar loses his nerve

To recover a ball, Neymar pushes the referee and puts his hand in the head of a player from the US Pays de Cassel!

Behind, he puts a strand back and takes a yellow card!

Neymar gets treatment

Hit in the right knee, Neymar is treated and tested above all … The doctors look worried but the Brazilian takes his place.

US Pays de Cassel raises its goal

Magnificent recovery full of confidence from the Pays de Cassel which starts from the goalkeeper and ends in the opposing camp! The public loves it!

Bruneel remains on the ground

After a duel in the air, Bruneel remains on the ground visibly stunned and touched on the back. He gets up slowly!

Soler misses his gesture

Ball badly returned by the defense of the Hauts-de-France club and Soler can take advantage of it. He tries to give Neymar a touch but it’s too strong!

Mbappé just too short!

This time, Nuno Mendes takes his lane and crosses to the penalty spot but Mbappé is too far ahead and does not control the ball!

Mbappé offside despite his goal

Found in the box but with his back to goal, Kylian Mbappé turns around and cheats on Samson! The striker was in an offside position!

Faster Parisians

We feel that the PSG players move much faster than the Kassel players. Pembélé takes his lane a lot, unlike Mendes.

Sané wakes up the crowd

First ball for Keba Sané who tries to dribble Kimpembe with a rake but he is sent into the background. No fault!

Paris chains the centers

PSG already knows a strong possession with 2-3 crosses returned by the defense of Pays de Cassel!


And here we go for this round of 16 between Pays de Cassel (Regional 1) and PSG! The winner will face Marseille in the next round!

How Christophe Galtier remobilizes his troops before the Coupe de France

Since the end of the World Cup, Paris Saint-Germain have had their first two defeats in the league. Every time outside against Lens then reindeer. On the field some players did not give the feeling of having done everything to make things better and beyond the results, this is partly what irritated the staff.

Without declaring a state of emergency, Christophe Galtier passed on the message to his players as he confided in a press conference. Especially during individual interviews. Last Saturday, in front of his group, in the locker room of the training center, the 2021 French champion wanted to remobilize everyone.

He notably pointed the finger at the insufficient investment of his players since the return of the world. A speech that is needed as the PSG can, it seems, do much better. The lack of races, the technical shortcomings and the lack of commitment were glaring against Rennes for example.

Neymar felt targeted

However, among some locker room executives, it goes without saying that Paris can make better copies and awareness has already taken place after these two setbacks away from the Park. The next few weeks will allow us to measure it. Others, like Neymar felt targeted by what they may have considered to be reproaches. The Brazilian knows he is particularly expected.

Christophe Galtier announced at a press conference that he intended to line up the best team possible this Monday evening in the round of 16 against the amateurs of Pays de Cassel. That should be the case with a few exceptions. Lionel Messi resting, it is Hugo Ekitike who should start with Kylian Mbappé and Neymar. In defense Nuno Mendes could return to the 11. Marquinhos should be associated with Sergio Ramos. Once again the very permeable defense of the world champions will be particularly scrutinized. Christophe Galtier hopes to be able to put some competition back into a weakened sector. Presnel Kimpembe should return to collective sessions “in 8 or 10 days” according to the former technician from Saint-Etienne. The French defender is optimistic and even hopes to be in the group that will face Bayern Munich on February 14.
