Looking to advance to the next round of the Coupe de France, PSG was well in control for most of the match but lacked the quality in the final third. It was to be expected after an extended holiday break.
However, the build-up to Aouchiche’s goal was superb. Dagba played a give-and-go with Ander Herrera and then the Frenchman picked out Aouchiche right in front of goal. The youngster then waited until the defender went down for the block and blasted his shot into the back of the net with his left foot.
Aouchiche has yet to sign a professional contract with PSG despite recently saying he has his heart set on playing in the French capital.
