‘Fighter’ Lee Kang-in played 82 minutes…PSG drew 1-1 with Newcastle with a PK goal at Mbappe Theater

Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) drew 1-1 with Newcastle United in the fifth Group F match of the 2023-24 UEFA Champions League (UCL) held at the Stade de France in Paris, France on the 29th (Korea time).

PSG desperately needed to win this match to advance to the round of 16, but failed to penetrate Newcastle’s dense defense after giving up the first goal to Aleksandr Isak in the 24th minute of the first half. Lee Kang-in, who started the match, actively encouraged his teammates after losing the point, and looked like a “fighter.” And PSG drew 1-1 due to Mbappe’s penalty goal in the extra time of the second half.

Luis Enrique, manager of the home team PSG, came out with a 4-3-3 formation. Kylian Mbappe, Randal Kolo Muani, and Usman Dembele were among the three-top players. Lee Kang-in, Manuel Ugarte, and Fabien Luis are in the midfield. Luka Hernandez, Danilu Pereira, Milan Shkriniar, and Ashraf Hakimi were selected from the left for the four-back. Gianluigi Donnarumma was wearing gloves for the goalkeeper.

Before the match, Lee Kang-in received a lot of attention as to whether he would be selected or not. The local government expected Lee Kang-in to be excluded from the starting lineup. UEFA released the expected lineup of PSG on its official website on the 27th, but there was no name for Lee Kang-in. Instead, Vitinha was on the list.

The same was expected by local media. British media Sports Mall predicted that PSG will not be much different from AS Monaco’s lineup against Newcastle. PSG did not include Lee Kang-in in the match against AS Monaco. Then, it garnered a landslide 5-2 victory. On top of that, Marco Asensio was scheduled to return to the game against Newcastle. Asensio is a player who can play various roles in Enrique’s 4-3-3. Naturally, Lee has one more contender to start the game, and selection for this match did not seem easy. 토토사이트

However, Lee Kang-in eventually started. He replaced Vitiña and teamed up with Ugarte and Luis in the midfield.

Newcastle manager Eddie Howe also brought up a 4-3-3 formation. Miguel Almiron, Alexandre Isaac and Anthony Gordon were selected as the front three-top players. Joelington, Bruno Guimarães and Luis Miley were among the starting players for the midfield. Four-back players consisted of Valentino Livramento, Fabien Scheer, Jamal Russell and Kieran Trippier. Nick Pope defended the goal.
