crazy ball – For the first time Lionel Messi, Neymar and Sergio Ramos both scored in one game as PSG won the Trophée des Champions for the 11th time in history, beating Nantes.
The French domestic cup match, which took place at the Bloomfield Stadium in Tel-Aviv Israel, was uneventful with PSG holding the ball 63%, taking 13 attempts and seven shots against poor Alban Lafont.
At the same time, Nantes had to settle for just one attack on target over the course of 90 minutes, despite trying to come off seven goal attempts.
That title slipped out of PSG’s hands last season when they lost 1-0 against Lille. But the arrival of Messi alongside Sergio Ramos at the start of last season ensured that the same thing did not happen a second time.
La Pulga opened the scoring after 22 minutes before former Barcelona team-mate Neymar added a second in first-half injury time. PSG’s third goal came from Sergio Ramos’ back-heel early in the second half as the former Real Madrid captain imitated England’s Alessia Russo in the Women’s Euro 2022 semi-final against Sweden, who was believed to be the Three Lions’ hero.
The last goal came from Neymar via a penalty in the 82nd minute. The score was 4-0 until the time this news was uploaded in the 89th minute.
Throughout the history of the Trophée des Champions, PSG has won this trophy 10 times, including eight in a row between 2013 and 2020. The second team that has won the most is Olympique Lyon eight times in history and in third place Reims and Saint-Etienne five times each.
For new coach Christophe Galtier, it will be his first trophy since taking over the Ligue 1 giants following the departure of Mauricio Pochettino in the summer of 2022.
