Against an opponent in the lower division, coach Christophe Galtier took the initiative to leave many pillars at home. However, the second squad of PSG is still able to beat Châteauroux.
Entering strongly, PSG got a goal in the 13th minute thanks to young talent Hugo Ekitiké. The subjectivity in the defense cost PSG at the end of the first half when Natanael Ntolla entered the scoreboard.
However, PSG with a more even force settled the game in the second half. In the 78th minute, after many stops, Carlos Soler finally had a goal to help the home team take the lead. It was a chaotic situation in the box and Soler was there just in time to kick the ball.
In the 90+1 minute, Juan Bernat completed a 3-1 victory for the away team with a corner kick that didn’t give goalkeeper Paul Delecroix any chances to save.
It must also be added that, despite losing, goalkeeper Paul Delecroix also deserves praise with 7 saves after 90 minutes of rolling the ball.
Thus, Mr. Galtier’s students completed the task – both defeating Châteauroux and maintaining the strength of the pillars. In front of the Paris capital team will be the clash with Angers on January 12.
