PSG wins with Neymar 2-1 against Lorient in League One on Sunday (06 November). Argentine star Lionel Messi was not with the team due to injury. He was rested against Lorient after re-injuring the ankle he picked up against Benfica in the Champions League a month earlier.
PSG dominated the field from the start. Brazilian star Neymar returned to the field after a break of two matches. However, the forward took advantage of the opponent’s goalkeeper Bhog’s mistake. Despite PSG having three players, Vogo made short passes to teammates. He also took a shot to clear the return back pass when he saw Neymar on the run, but the ball went to the feet of the Brazilian forward and went to Ugo Ekiti on the sideline.
Neymar hit the net from a distance of 6 yards after taking control of the French forward’s pass. The Parisians attacked Lorient’s defense four more times before the break. However, Neymar-Mbappera could not overcome Vogo’s replacement goalkeeper Vito Mannone.
