Revue de presse : Pays de Cassel/PSG, OM/PSG, Mbappé, Ekitike et Nuno Mendes

In this press review, return on the beautiful Parisian victory without too many difficulties, in all logic. Paris Saint-Germain will therefore go to the Vélodrome for the round of 16 to play rival Olympique de Marseille. Enough to have a month of February and a month of March filled with beautiful and big posters, with no less than two OM / PSG, the two games against Bayern Munich, Monaco, Lille and a possible quarter-final of the Coupe de France . Kylian Mbappé, 24, scored a quintuple and made a record match, while next to him, Hugo Ekitike, 20, was both ghostly but also “forgotten” by his partners. Finally, another satisfaction, the return on time of Nuno Mendes, 20, who should do the greatest good.

Well, there are two schools, those who are beginning to fear the infernal calendar and the others who are looking forward to it. What is good with the trip to Marseille is that the players will have to give everything, all the time, without calculating. Enough to have impressive games and a vibrant month of February. If PSG can lose everything, it can also eliminate its rival from the Coupe de France and dismiss it in the league, with also the possibility of joining the quarter-finals of the Champions League.

By eliminating Bayern Munich, and the match between Liverpool and Real Madrid, the table would open wide, and a possible affordable quarter-final cannot be ruled out for the Parisians as well. To achieve all this, the players will have to move and show that PSG is not a starlet club. If they have been playing like this since the start of 2023, it will indeed be very complicated.

He’s a glutton, he swallows records, he only thinks about that, making history. He had no qualms about scoring his 5 goals, as possessed, he could also have delighted Ekitike, it was nothing. Him, he is there for the story and does not make gifts. Result, at the start of the season, he is just ahead of the cybord Erling Braut Haaland but otherwise, he sits well at the top (not counting the World Cup). He is even the vice-captain of PSG, Galtier confirmed it.

They can be proud of themselves, they tried to get the ball out, to play their game. The only problem is the difference in level which has never allowed the country of Cassel to aim for the slightest goal. It is the ruthless charm of the Coupe de France, but it will remain engraved as a great evening for an entire club and region.

Nuno Mendes is a bit of a player who can change everything when he is in top form. He is young, inconstant at times but has qualities that could hurt opponents. He goes fast, he doesn’t hesitate to provoke and strike and he brings danger. He therefore resumed competition, that’s good, PSG will be launched in an incredible rush of matches. Galtier will need everyone and his return is timely.

Ghost yes, but the reasons are twofold. Already, at the base, the Coupe de France, against a Regional 1, could have been an opportunity to see him shine, score and even be an attacking leader. The problem is that there was Mbappé and to a lesser extent Neymar. The two stars made the show and technically, Ekitike could not follow.

He tried but naturally, all the balloons were magnetized by Mbappé. We can call it talent and we see the path that Ekitike must travel to become a great player. On this match, it is to be hoped that Galtier has not lost his striker because in the event of an injury to one of the MNM, he would then be considered as the natural replacement. If he has a certain level, he is still far from a top player, we still feel he is lost on the field.

Press review: Pays de Cassel/PSG, OM/PSG, Mbappé, Ekitike and Nuno Mendes  PSG will play matches every 3-4 days and that with some “big chunks” including Olympique de Marseille, Monaco and Bayern Munich. It will be necessary to manage all the objective well to accumulate the victories.
