PSG came out victorious (3-1) from the away match against Maccabi Haifa in the Champions League on Wednesday 14 September 2022.

If the score could suggest a win easily won by Paris-Saint-Germain (PSG), it was more tiring on the pitch. Pushed by Maccabi Haifa, on Wednesday 14 September, during the second match of the Champions League group stage, the Parisians relied on the talent of their attacking trio – Messi-Neymar-Mbappé – to find the blame and bring back the three points of the their trip to Israel (3-1).

Faced with the alleged weakest team in Group H, PSG’s long-awaited clear dominance did not happen. Surprised by the intensity, desire and technical precision of their opponents, the Parisians took the time to get involved.

They have been warned, repeatedly, by dangerous opportunities from the Israeli team. And while Kylian Mbappé missed the duels with the goalkeeper, Maccabi was quick to open the scoring; using a porous defense, Tjaronn Chery pushed the ball into the back of the net and set the Sammy Ofer Stadium on fire even more (24And).

The situation did not improve upon returning from the locker room, facing the Haifaians recomposed and determined to put one of the contenders for the trophy in difficulty. Too much waiting, the Parisian defense suffered several times, before Messi sounded the revolt.

Less marked in his pants than in the first period, perhaps from opponents more physically borrowed, the Argentine had time to turn around, progress with the ball and raise his head to serve Kylian Mbappé, author of the second goal (69 ‘And). Finally, to complete this mock victory, Neymar went so far as to add a third result (88And).
