PSG Talking Podcast: Le Havre Spoil Party at the Parc; Dortmund Preview

Paris Saint-Germain entered Saturday’s match against Le Havre ready to celebrate a Ligue 1 title with a win, but the visitors had other ideas and spoiled the party at the Parc des Princes.

On this episode of PSG Talking, I’m joined by Ethan from PSG Fan Club Boise to discuss PSG’s come-from-behind draw against Le Havre, Warren Zaïre-Emery’s big news, and we look ahead to next week’s UEFA Champions League clash against Borussia Dortmund.

We begin with the news that before kickoff against Le Havre, Zaïre-Emery was presented with a kit with “2029” on the back, signaling a five-year contract extension for the 18-year-old. We discuss the Frenchman’s importance in the soon-to-be post-Kylian Mbappé-era and whether he will captain PSG next season.

Next, we dive into the 3-3 draw against Le Havre. A win would have seen PSG clinch its 12 Ligue 1 title in club history, but sloppy defensive play from PSG allowed a determined Le Havre side to score three goals and force Luis Enrique’s squad to score two late goals to squeak out a draw. We discuss what we liked in the match, including Gonçalo Ramos’ header and assist, and the fact there were no injuries. We also break down what we didn’t like in the match, like the forgettable performance from Randal Kolo Muani and the poor defensive effort.

The second half of the show is all about the first leg of PSG’s semi-final tie against Dortmund in the Champions League. We discuss Dortmund’s recent result, a potential injury to a key player, and what lineup changes Luis Enrique may make for that match. While Ethan believes PSG should be a little on the cautious side and play Manuel Ugarte for extra defensive help in the midfield, I believe PSG should flex their offensive muscle and attack Dortmund on the road and try to put the tie out of reach as quickly as possible.
