Paris Saint-Germain began the official season with a 4-0 thrashing of Nantes to win the French Super Cup in Tel Aviv, Israel. Lionel Messi , Neymar twice and Sergio Ramos scored the goals for Christophe Galtier ‘s team , who made his official debut in this match.
PSG, who could not count on Kylian Mbappé due to an accumulation of yellow cards last season, came out looking for the win from the start and built a great team play that ended with a shot by Achraf Hakimi that was blocked by goalkeeper Alban Lafont.
The arrivals of the capital team continued with a deflected shot by Pablo Sarabia and a header to the crossbar by Marquinhos, while those led by Antoine Kombouare responded with a shot by Ludovic Blas that forced a great save by Gianluigi Donnarumma.
Messi opened the scoring at 22′ with a nice finish in which he left the goalkeeper on the floor, Neymar missed the opportunity to increase the lead a while later and Nantes almost equalized through Evann Guessand, whose shot went near the left post.
Lafont prevented the Argentine star’s second goal in the 44th minute and it seemed that the game would go to rest with the minimum difference in favor of the Parisians, but Ney executed a free kick with amazing quality to stretch the advantage in the last action of the first time.
Ramos converted the third at 57′ with a brilliant definition of a heel and the Ligue 1 champions controlled the game in the final stretch until completing the task at 82’. Jean-Charles Castelletto fouled Neymar inside the area, he was sent off, and the Brazilian subtly executed the maximum penalty for the final 4-0.
