The Stéphanois goalkeeper has long maintained his own in multilpliating the decisive stops, but the Parisians ended up (1-3).

Until the 79th minute, it was “Saint Etienne”! Or almost. If the Saint-Etienne team has long been shocked by Paris-Saint-Germain, Sunday, November 28 at the 15th day of Ligue 1, it owes it largely to its goalkeeper, Etienne Green.

Whether in front of Kylian mbed (three times), Neymar (twice) or Lionel Messi, the Stéphanois goalkeeper has multiplied the decisive stops, allowing his officials to hold on the Parisians (1-1) during a good part of the meeting.

But, in a stage Geoffroy-Guichard scanned intermittently by the snow, the Stéphanois, reduced to ten just before the end of the first period – Expulsion of Timothy Kolodziejczak for a tackle on Kylian mbed -, ended up folding.

Angel di Maria first (79th minute), then Marququilhos (91st) – already author of the first goal – have definitively tilted the match. On these three goals, the decisive pass came from Lionel Messi.

These three “shots” saved the Argentine match that will have little weighed on the game. A match during which, moreover, the Parisians have little often managed to impose their footprint, have often been abused and ended up losing Neymar.

At ten minutes from the end of the match, the Brazilian was injured at the ankle during a tackle of the Stephanois defender Yvann Mason. He left the lawn of the stadium on a stretcher. The PSG, he left the Stephan Cauldron by consolidating his first place of the championship.
