Ligue 1: Bordeaux Vs PSG Review
Earlier today, PSG visited Bordeaux in a Ligue 1 encounter in which the visitors truly dominated from start to finish. The 2-0 score line did not justify how much better the reigning champions played. The possession, chance taking, skill and overall patience with pace was absolutely too much to handle.
Edinson Cavani only played in the final 10 or so due to the midweek international break, but captain Thiago Silva and Zlatan Ibrahimovic played in this game and were truly successful in their respective positions — Silva made a countless number of stops defensively, while Ibra dissected the Bordeaux defense with his skills and passing when he set up Blaise Matuidi for the opening goal. He also helped in the play that set up Lucas Moura, who scored his first ever goal for his new club.
Javier Pastore did not take part in this game, which gave Moura the opportunity to start. He put on a memorable performance, which makes it difficult to see Pastore starting over him anytime soon, unless it is due to injury or suspension.
Jeremy Menez was out injured for this one, but to be frank, PSG did not seem to miss his skill and pace down the wings.
With this win, PSG is not top of the standings for the time being, as Monaco has yet to play their league game of the weekend.
Speaking of Monaco, when these two sides meet, the entire world of French soccer will be watching as the two richest clubs in the country collide for supremacy.
