Zapping Our Mondial CAN: Algeria’s calendar
This is the kind of statistic that must hurt many Paris Saint-Germain supporters. Recruited in 2017 for record sums (220 million for the Brazilian, 180 for the French), Neymar and Kylian Mbappé had lived since a real “bromance”. Whether on or off the field, the two men displayed an unwavering bond, which has deteriorated somewhat since the start of this new exercise. Faced with Montpellier, the number 7 displayed his dissatisfaction with the game deployed by the number 10, reproaching him in particular for not serving him enough, while Lionel Messi was nevertheless absent.
A feeling that is confirmed directly in the statistics revealed by Opta. Indeed, the two nuggets of the Parc des Princes have never been found so little since their transfer. Only 16 assists per game in Ligue 1 and the Champions League, against 17, 22, 21 and 18 over the previous four years. What to give a hard time to Mauricio Pochettino before the reception of Manchester City this Tuesday in a meeting that promises to be electric.
Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) can no longer count as much on its Neymar-Mbappé duo this season, the two men are less than in the past this year. They exchanged only 16 balls per game in C1 + L1 on average.
