Stade de Reims Manager Believes his Team Created Enough Goal-Scoring Chances to Get a Result Against PSG

Stade de Reims came into its Ligue 1 fixture against Paris Saint-Germain as the heavy underdogs. Reims sat in 19th place in the Ligue 1 table and had played uninspiring football so far in the new league season. But to the surprise of many, Reims put up a fight in the match and prevented it from becoming one in which PSG scored at will.

Reims manager David Guion was quite pleased (via L’Equipe) with the effort from his squad against the reigning Ligue 1 champions.

“I find that we have responded well to what the Parisians have proposed,” Gion said in his post-match press conference. “The regret is this post (Boulaye Dia’s goal-scoring chance). I would have liked my players to be rewarded with a goal to ignite the end of the match. There was a lot of room to play since the Parisian team was cut in two, because they had five attacking players.

“Unfortunately, we did not have this accuracy in the last gesture.”

Reims did not tally many keen goal-scoring chances against PSG; it recorded a mere three shots on target in the contest. On the other hand, PSG orchestrated multiple promising attacking plays other than Mauro Icardi’s pair of goal sequences. In the end, PSG was simply more clinical in front of goal than Reims was in the league matchup.
