Les Dogues Won Their First French Super Cup-oksports News


Paris Saint-Germain manager Mauricio Pochettino endured a losing start to the 2021/22 season as Ligue 1 holders Lille secured a 1-0 win in the French Super Cup.

Xena's first-half thunderbolt was insufficient to win defeat against PSG. Lille took the domestic title by a single goal last campaign. Pochettino, despite not having star forwards Kylian Mabappe or Neymar in their squad, still managed to field a somewhat experienced side with Achraf Hakimi, Ander Herreras, and MauroIcardi chosen for the starting line-up. PSG won the Trophee de Champions - a competition between the Ligue 1 champs and the Coupe de France winner - eight times, but they came up short at Tel Aviv's Bloomfield Stadium. Burak Yilmaz (Julian Draxler) and Burak Yilmaz (Burak Yilmaz) both had opportunities in the beginning. But, Lille replaced Christophe Galtier as their manager. Xena picked Yilmaz's pass to drill a rising strike past Keylor Navas at halftime. Georginio Wijnaldum was an interim substitute for PSG in the second period. While the Dutchman nearly had an immediate effect when he set up Icardi, Inter Milan's former striker was not able to complete his goal. Leo Jardim (goalie Lille) helped Lille weather a late storm. They celebrated their first success at the competition, following two defeats in 1955.
