In their match against Montpellier Hérault SC, Paris Saint-Germain opened up the scoring courtesy of Idrissa Gueye. However, the capital club failed to put some distance from their opponent as they had plenty of missed scoring chances.
Nonetheless, the French giants were able to secure a late goal by Julian Draxler for the 2-0 victory. As a result, PSG did grab all three points, but there’s still plenty of kinks that the squad needs to work out to reach their potential.
Following the match, manager Mauricio Pochettino provided his thoughts to the media at his press conference on the matchup and what he liked about his squad.
“Yes, in general, the team was strong today. It’s a deserved victory for the team. There were two different periods: the first one during which we created chances against, with a game much more direct and less structured than what we like to do,” Pochettino said.
“In the second half, we have more control, and we created opportunities by precisely controlling. I am satisfied with the evening performance!”
