The French Press Charges Against Neymar

Neymar is at the center of all the criticism after PSG's black week . Eliminated from the Champions League and with the chances of winning the championship seriously compromised, the French press is being very critical of the Brazilian.

Some criticism that comes after announcing his renewal with PSG and that will prevent a new soap opera with Barça . The Brazilian was the protagonist in PSG's draw on the last day, a result that was a serious setback for the French.

One of the most recurrent criticisms of Neymar has been his individualism . L 'Équipe said: "He wandered between the lines without dynamism" and added "Neymar had fun alone, forgetting his teammates. His goal, the eighth in 16 Ligue 1 games, does not hide his production, clearly insufficient."

'Le Parisien', meanwhile, also criticized the Brazilian's lack of effort in the last match, assuring that he played "in socks." It was also very hard 'zaviewsports', which questioned the range that is given to the Brazilian seeing the results of PSG.

"There are players who have to take responsibility. How can a guy like Neymar have such a catastrophic week? We can't keep saying 'the Brazilian genius',' the artist '.' The world's top-3 ', the' future Golden Ball' ".

PSG ends its black week by also moving away from Ligue 1

The Parisian team left two points in Rennes that could be decisive in their career with Lille to win Ligue 1. Those of Pochettino , very ineffective, were unable to overcome a Rennes that deserved more and that leaves very touched, also in France, the winning project that Nasser Al-Khelaifi wants.

And it is that all the pressure was for Paris Saint-Germain, that after the incontestable victory of Lille in the northern derby against Lens, could not fail in the field of Rennes. Eliminated from the Champions League last Tuesday at the Etihad , Pochettino's men needed to recover quickly so as not to let go of the frantic fight for the league title.

And now that have run out of Champions, Parisians are bound to win back the competition of the French regularly, because despite being alive in the Cup, currently only looks in their windows a minor title, Supercopa de France , too little for their aspirations.

Changes in the Parisian eleven

To follow the Lille train, the Argentine coach refreshed his team a lot with respect to the semifinals in Manchester. Still without Mbappé, the offensive weight of the team fell back on Neymar and, with him at the helm, PSG deployed with great confidence with the ball, easily generating chances, but forgiving excessively.

And this is when the headlines of the engine room began to be missed. Without Paredes and, above all, without Verrati , the rhythm of the game was not what they needed for the individualities to emerge. And with the minutes, PSG was losing precision. He was becoming less and less comfortable on the pitch, which Rennes took advantage of to grow, start spreading the game and threaten Keylor's goal .

The two teams lengthened, the lines were wide open and each arrival became an occasion in both goals. But when the game was more open, a gift from heaven - or from the VAR - changed the shock.

Neymar, renewal with goal

The added minutes of the first half were disputed when a Di María center ended with a penalty from Aguerd on Kurzawa that, despite not being signaled in the first instance, it was once reviewed by the VAR. Neymar , who is not much to waste gifts, did not fail and led his team with an advantage on the scoreboard at halftime, thus celebrating his recent renewal with a goal.

A goal that was not enough, because Rennes, who deserved more, kept pushing and Pochettino's men began to have vertigo. PSG is not used to the situation of not depending on oneself and the pressure began to take its toll, in part also to the wear of the Champions against Guardiola's City.

He had started ahead and PSG could not intimidate the locals. Suffering when he had to run backwards, Navas once again established himself in the savior by putting out big hands. But when everything depends on your last player, there are times when it is not enough to have a higher quality. And after a corner, Guirassy stood up majestically to head the ball to the back of the net and raise a tie to the scoreboard that knew little for the locals, which unhinged a PSG that finished with 10 for the expulsion of Kimpembe's impotence and that It takes them 3 points away from a leader, Lille, who are showing no intention of abandoning the first position.

There are two days left , 6 points at stake and a final in which anything can happen. Ligue 1, red hot and with PSG off the hook.
