A week after finally securing their first success in the competition against Norwegians Elverum, PSG were once again defeated in the top game for Poles in Kielce, group A leaders before the meeting. Deprived of Nikola Karabatic, unavailable for several months (he will be operated on November 4), but also of Luka, his brother, and Dylan Nahi (who will join the Polish champion next year), the men of Raul Gonzalez cash a 3 rd setback and mark time again. A redemption is now mandatory next Wednesday against the Macedonians of Vardar Skopje (new schedule at 6:45 pm).
What you must remember
Big tempo of entry into this part which opposes two teams with high ambitions in this Champions League. Aware of their need to take points, the Parisians start strong (7-10, 13th). Kielce glued together and passed in front (13-12, 23rd). PSG start again (13-16), but the Poles sign a new comeback (18-18). At the break, nothing is played.
Spurred on by Karacic (4 entry goals), Kielce then made the hole (22-20), and the Polish attackers did not miss anything (26-22). Nedim Remili and Henrik Toft Hansen bring back the French champion to height (29-29). The end of the match is untenable. This is the moment that Karacic chooses to score four new goals (13 in total), and thus spell the end of Parisian hopes (35-33).
The player: Mikkel Hansen
The Dane of Paris SG was quite simply the one who held his team at arm’s length during the first thirty minutes, with 7 goals (out of 8 attempts). The man who has been named the world’s best player three times in the previous decade adds two new goals and then lets his teammates do the work, before leveling at 32-32. His ten goals were therefore not enough.
The number: 6
That is the number of stops made during an hour by the two Parisian goalkeepers, Vincent Gérard and Yann Genty. He started the game first before being replaced by his teammate before the break. With only 15% success, they confirm the weakness this Thursday in Poland of the defense of PSG, which had never taken so many goals since the start of the season, in all competitions.
