Paris Saint-Germain Dominates Classic Match Against Olympique de Marseille
Paris, September 24, 2023 – Kooora
In a brilliant display of skill, Paris Saint-Germain emerged victorious in the French Classic, defeating Olympique de Marseille with a stunning 4-0 win on Sunday evening during the sixth round of the league.
Key Players Shine
The Classic match saw outstanding performances from key players, including Achraf Hakimi, Randal Kolo Muani, and the Portuguese sensation, Gonçalo Ramos, who delivered a fantastic double. Hakimi opened the scoring with a powerful free-kick that found the back of the net early in the 7th minute.
Hakimi played a pivotal role in the second goal as well, with his shot rebounding off the right post, allowing Randal Kolo Muani to pounce on the opportunity and extend the lead. However, the mood was dampened for Paris and its fans as Kylian Mbappé was forced to leave the pitch due to injury after just 30 minutes, making way for the Portuguese sensation Ramos.
Marseille’s Missed Opportunities
While Olympique de Marseille attempted to exploit defensive lapses and fought back with determination, they failed to convert their chances. Vittoria Vittinia’s header hit the crossbar after a cross from Jonathan Cloose, and this near-miss was the closest Marseille came to scoring in the first half.
Strategic Second Half Adjustments
In the second half, Marseille’s interim coach, Jack Aberdeenado, made tactical adjustments by introducing Amin Harith and Ndiaye to strengthen the midfield and reduce Paris’s dominance. However, Paris Saint-Germain quickly thwarted any hopes of a comeback.
Gonçalo Ramos added a third goal with a well-placed header following a cross from his teammate Ousmane Dembélé. Hakimi, having already showcased his free-kick prowess, attempted another dangerous shot that narrowly missed the target.
Late Game Intensity
With just minutes remaining, Paris continued to bolster their ranks with the inclusion of Danilo Pereira and Fabian Ruiz, while Marseille saw Carlos Soler and Nordi Mukiele enter the fray. Randal Kolo Muani impressed with his runs down the right side, setting up Ramos for a brilliant fourth goal, securing a resounding victory for Paris Saint-Germain.
Paris Saint-Germain’s dominant performance in the Classic match not only earned them three points but also showcased their attacking prowess and resilience in the absence of Kylian Mbappé. With this victory, PSG now stands at 11 points, securing the third spot, while Marseille lingers in seventh place with 9 points.
In a memorable Classic encounter, Achraf Hakimi’s brilliant free-kick and the dynamic duo of Ramos and Kolo Muani proved pivotal in Paris Saint-Germain’s convincing 4-0 victory over Olympique de Marseille.
