It's not Messi's fault: Paris Saint Germain seems like just another team of the heap, and not a Dream Team

It was not a game to shine, and when it seemed that the individuals ended up saving the Parisians, a penalty gave him the first blow in the tournament. PSG drew 2-2 against Leipzig, without Lionel Messi, at the Red Bull Arena in Germany for date 4 of the group stage of the Champions League. Donnaruma started as a starter, saved a penalty and was converted another. Wijnaldum scored a double for Pochettino's men.

Already the first minutes of the game they gave a warning to the Parisians, who never finished accommodating themselves in the game. Before 10 minutes, the German team had already put the lead with a goal from former PSG Nkunku for the ‘Toros’, who could extend the lead if André Silva did not miss a penalty against Donnaruma.

The forward's lack of aim was paid dearly by Leipzig, who saw how in the first half, Wijnaldum traced the match, first with a '9' appearance in the area, and then with a header. When the game seemed favorable for Pochettino's team, the VAR appeared again (it had done it in the Dutchman's 2-1) to decree a penalty in favor of the German team, which the Hungarian Dominik Szoboszlai changed for a goal for the 2-2 final.

With this result, PSG loses the leadership of Group A, as it remains with eight points, one behind the leader Manchester City, who beat Brugge. On the following day, the Parisians will be measured precisely against the English.
