Xavi Simons, UEFA Youth League goalscorer

Kindly share

A crazy match at the Stade Municipal Georges Lefevre between Paris Saint-Germain and Manchester City U19. Both teams played the second matchday of the UEFA Youth League as an appetizer of the big match that will pit Messi and Neymar against Grealish or Bernardo Silva.

The match was characterised by high intensity from the kick off. As a result, a total of two red cards were shown. The English took the lead in the 30th minute with a goal from Shea Charles that turned the game on its head.

However, the French side kept trying, led by Xavi Simons. Burns’ red card in the 66th minute proved decisive. Two minutes later, Simons himself equalised from the penalty spot.

The final minutes belonged to the home side, who saw their numerical superiority increase after the sending off of goalscorer Charles, who picked up two yellow cards in the space of just five minutes. Despite this, the attempts did not bear fruit and the equaliser proved to be definitive. With this result, the Sky Blues are leaders with four points, while PSG remain in third place with two points.
