Ligue 1: despite Etienne Green, PSG wins in Saint-Etienne, but loses Neymar

Until the 79th minute, it was “Saint Etienne”! Or almost. If the Saint-Etienne team has long held the shock against Paris-Saint-Germain, Sunday November 28 during the 15th day of Ligue 1, it owes a large part to its goalkeeper, Etienne Green.

Whether it is against Kylian Mbappé (three times), Neymar (twice) or Lionel Messi, the Stéphanois goalkeeper has multiplied the decisive stops, allowing his family to keep the Parisians (1-1) in check for a good part of the meeting.

But, in a Geoffroy-Guichard stadium intermittently swept by snow, the Stéphanois, reduced to ten just before the end of the first period – expulsion of Timothée Kolodziejczak for a tackle on Kylian Mbappé – ended up bending.

Angel Di Maria first (79th minute), then Marquinhos (91st) – already scorer of the first goal – changed the match for good. Of these three goals, the decisive pass came from Lionel Messi.

These three “blows of brilliance” saved the match of the Argentinian which will have little influence on the game. A match during which, moreover, the Parisians have only rarely succeeded in making their mark, have often been abused and ended up losing Neymar.

Ten minutes from the end of the match, the Brazilian suffered an ankle injury during a tackle from Stéphane defender Yvann Maçon. He left the stadium lawn on a stretcher. PSG left the Chaudron Saint-Etienne by consolidating its first place in the championship.
