Pochettino is getting his hand in Paris

New head coach of PSG Mauricio Pochettino got the first victory as the head of the French capital club in the match with Brest 3:0.

The debut for the Argentine specialist in France was slightly overshadowed by a draw with the local Saint-Etienne, where the teams had a 1:1 tie. Besides the fact that PSG were not an easy opponent, the team needed to understand the head coach's ideas.

And by the second encounter under the management of Mauricio Pochettino, PSG came out in full combat readiness. Out of the major changes, the coach gave the players the stability of the formation and self-confidence. Unlike Thomas Tuchel, who managed to change formations several times during the match, Pochettino played the entire match with Brest 4-3-3.

Diallo and Marquinhos held the center of defense. With the latter, the Argentine stopped experimenting as a defensive midfielder and brought the player back to the defense. Dagba came out on the right, who was then replaced by Florenzi, and on the left, Bakker played a little over an hour. It was noticeable from the game that the lateral defenders had not fully learned how to work on the wings and they would have to do this in the near future. For the rest, Herrera showed himself excellently in creation, Mbappe and Di Maria shone, and Moise Kean, it seems, earned a full contract and a buyout from Everton.

Later, Pochettino said that he was pleased with the result and the players, but they had big challenges ahead,

“Now we hope to play the next good match against Marseille to create good conditions for ourselves in the championship standings. Of course, every time we play with Marseille we have to win,” Canal + quotes Pochettino.

Today PSG will have a fight against a more difficult opponent in the French Super Cup - Marseille. The Olympians have been in a bit of a fever lately, but Andre Villas-Boas is able to set the guys for the result, there should be no problems with motivation. Bookmakers believe in the unconditional victory of the Parisians with a coefficient of 1.40. The triumph of Marseille is valued at 7.90 odds and the draw is 5.50 according to 1xBet.
