Paris Saint Germain received a shock of their life as struggling Dijon defeated them 2-1 on Friday’s clash at Stade Gaston Gerard. Vanguard sports stated that:
In eight top-flight attempts, Dijon has never beaten PSG and it appeared, history will never change as the were a goal down through Mbappe’s fine finish.
PSG struck the bar twice and failed to score in any of their late chances as pressure mounted on them, looking for a draw, which never materialised.
Despite been 18-points down prior to kick off, Dijon hopes never went down as the tested Keylor Navas earlier enough through Julio Tavares and Cadiz.
Mbappe put the visitors ahead, delicately lifting the ball over Alfred Gomis after
Angel Di Maria had done a great work.
Dijon pegged back on
the brink of half-time, as PSG struggled to get going.
Just 103 seconds into the second half, Dijon scored their second goal as Cadiz dribbled Marquinhos before latching the ball well to surpass the goalkeeper and enter the net.
Di Maria wasted two golden opportunities to peg PSG back into the game and Icardi hit the crossbar with a header from six yards.
MARTIAL’S Return Key To Unlocking Rashford’s GOALSCORING Touch:
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, Manchester United manager is full of praise for Anthony Martial for helping his fellow striker to rediscover his form and confidence in front of goal according to the Vanguard Newspapers;
Marcus Rashford who on Thursday turned 22 scored twice in United’s Carling Cup win over Chelsea including a surprise stunner that made it four goals in his three starts for the club.
His recent form coincided with the return of long time absentee, Anthony
Martial, who has been out for a period of eight weeks injury.
“Ever since Martial returned to the team, Rashford has been exceptional in goal.
“Rashford i believe is happier now facing the goal post and being direct, dribbling past people and no longer a target man in goal.
At such a young age, he wants to master all the skills.
“We will definitely see more of him as a number nine in a two with Anthony Martial or in a three like we saw against Norwich. Solskjaer revealed to reporters ahead of United’s match against Bournemouth on Saturday afternoon.
