Paris Saint-Germain vs Sochaux Team News
The giant Swede put in what he admitted was a “poor performance” (h/t ESPN FC) last outing against Evian, but Zlatan Ibrahimovic made up for it here against Sochaux.
After providing a world-class pass for Thiago Silva’s opener,
the talismanic striker played a key role in fixing Ezequiel Lavezzi for the second shortly after half-time.
There was nothing he could do about first goal after Ibrahimovic exposed defence with a sensational chipped pass,
but the French youth international made variety of other good saves then .
However, he will want to forget the last half as PSG went on to stay four past him because the Sochaux defence disappeared.
In the normally close battle against relegation, a talented shot stopper can make a world of difference.
The Argentine produced an honest performance, linking up well with Edinson Cavani and Zlatan Ibrahimovic early
and he was unlucky to possess a first-half penalty appeal turned down.
El Pocho was vibrant, willing to urge involved and proved some extent over what he offers the side, justifying Blanc’s decision to start out him.
The Argentine’s goal early within the last half was the icing on the cake and it had been also his second league goal of the season.
There is many physicality and athleticism within the team, but nowhere the required level of genuine talent.
Funds aren’t likely to be forthcoming without some sales first though,
meaning that the team are going to be stripped of few remaining quality elements, like Sebastien Corchia.
