THE SPORT SCAN – After PSG’s draw (1-1) against the Magpies on Tuesday evening, the RMC columnist strongly criticized the entry into play of the former Lyonnais, ineffective in front of goal.
31 shots including 7 on target. Tuesday evening at the Parc des Princes, PSG multiplied the opportunities in front of the Newcastle cage (1-1), especially in the last half hour, until managing to equalize on a penalty in added time. A lesser evil for Parisian coach Luis Enrique who will have launched all his offensive cartridges to avoid defeat. Vitinha, Marco Asensio came into play as did Bradley Barcola, launched in the 62nd minute in place of Randal Kolo Muani. Little used in Ligue 1, the former Lyonnais distinguished himself by several missed opportunities in front of goal when PSG pushed to snatch a draw. Salvation finally came from Kylian Mbappé (and video refereeing) while Barcola did not escape criticism after the meeting.
In the show After Foot on the antennas of RMCcolumnist Daniel Riolo ranted against the performance of the French international hopeful. “Barcola didn’t hurt my heart at all. We are watching a Champions League match, not a Youth League match! Let him go play in the Youth League in that case! the journalist got carried away before blaming Luis Enrique. The person responsible is not him, it is Luis Enrique because he thinks that he is a player who is capable of playing in the Champions League whereas all you had to do was open your eyes in the league to see that He’s a little lamb. A little lamb that can’t even get out of the farm pen.”

Alongside Riolo, former PSG player Jérôme Rothen preferred to highlight the collective bankruptcy of the Parisian team rather than blaming Barcola. “Over the whole match, why did PSG dominate like that and were harmless in making lateral pes? Faced with such a grouped defense, when you are a midfielder you have the right to p, regretted the consultant. When Vitinha comes in, there is a different offensive animation. In the last ten minutes, Barcola missed four big chances. But before that, was there a match? Were there a lot of opportunities?”
“We are talking about the Champions League, not a championship match against Clermont. In the Champions League he cannot behave like he did! He is at Youth League level! added Riolo, quite annoyed. He manages to create chances, he is all alone in front of goal but he is not likely to score! Barcola he eats five (big occasions), they are bigger than us combined.
An anger which quickly made the Parisian supporters react, who had to tear their hair out at the ineffectiveness of their attackers last night at the Parc des Princes.
