Sergio Ramos already mark with Paris Saint-Germain. The former captain of Real Madrid joined his team’s party and made his debut as a scorer in his fifth game with the Gauls, in the 4-0 win against Reims Stadium. He was back in the starting lineup after playing a few minutes last matchday and this time he did complete the entire game, scoring the second for Pochettino’s men. Three weeks before facing the white team in the Champions League round of 16, Ramos is beginning to gain momentum at his new club and, if there are no new setbacks, by then he should be consolidated in the eleven.
Despite the result and the dominance of the PSG for much of the match, it was not the best game for the Gauls. Consolidated leaders in the League 1 They are aware that except for a debacle they will be champions, which is why they may have given the sensation of playing at half throttle. Even so, he gives them the chance to score goals and do it without Messi on the field. Without him on the green for much of the game, it was Di María and Mbappé who carried the weight of the attack, while the goals put them Verratti, twice, Spanish and Danilo.
And it is that the numerous casualties due to injury and the presence of several of his players in the African Cup did not prevent Pochettino from giving himself the privilege of dispensing with his great star during the first hour of play. The technician came out with Keylor under sticks, a defense of four formed by Kehrer, Ramos, Marquinhos Y Mendes, a trident in the center with Paredes, Verratti Y Danilo and a front in which Mbappe Y Say Maria accompanied Icardi.
Sergio Ramos played his third game as a starter with PSG, the second in the League 1 after making his debut against Saint Etienne almost two months ago, on November 28. After a new injury, his debut in the Cup and his expulsion against Lorient, he had only played less than 20 minutes against Brest last day. On this occasion, he shared a duo at the back with Marquinhos, with whom he is called to form one of the best pairs of central defenders in Europe.
The match began with timid approaches from PSG, especially at the feet of Mbappé, who was the one who broke and gave pace to the Parisians’ attacks. Some arrivals to which the Reims He did not hesitate to answer, putting Ramos himself and Keylor Navas to the test, who prevented the goal on two occasions during the first half.
We had to wait until a minute before the break to see the first goal of the night at the Parc des Princes. Verratti he took advantage of a rebound, after a failed shot by Icardi, to come from behind and beat Rajkovic. And already in the second part the good tuning of the leader of Ligue 1 would be even more evident.
With the party controlled, those of Pochettino They were still stalking the goal of a Reims team that was barely able to get close to Keylor’s area on gasoline. Increasingly exhausted, they were retreating before an increasingly superior PSG, who put the finishing touch in a corner.
Then the time has come Ramos. The highest-scoring defender in recent decades was once again the smartest in the class and took advantage of a rejection of a header on the line to tip the ball into the bottom of the goal. He celebrated it by taking out all the anger accumulated during these months in Paris, in which injuries have prevented him from showing that he is the best central defender in history.
Immediately after, Messi made his entrance on the scene, to take even more advantage of a Reims who had given up. With the entry of the Argentine the real party began. The game was already more than broken and the Argentine took the opportunity to show off, although he did not score. yes they did Verratti –again and rebound– and Danilo, closing a win that already leads them to lead Nice, second, by 11 points in the standings.
