PSG scored on breakaways.???#5 Unai Emery’s lack of control

PSG does not have a world-class goalkeeper and it is for a reason that they have been following Oblak and Donarumma. Areola is a decent shot-stopper however he isn’t one that will worry opposing teams and he is just twelfth on the list of goalkeepers in Ligue 1 who have the best percentage of saves. Last season Emery’s side suffered with Kevin Trapp and it doesn’t look as though they have the solution yet??Undoubtedly the MCN is fundamental for the team with Mbappe (15), Neymar (24) and Cavani (26) hitting 65 of the 107 goals scored this season overall.Neymar has lit up the French capital so far this season. He has scored 24 goals and made 16 assists in 23 games, PSG scores considerably more goals with Neymar in their team, they boast a better win ratio and fewer goals conceded, so his presence was badly missed against Lyon last Monday.?#3 No alternative to Thiago Motta?Thiago MottaMotta, 35, has a knee problem and is expected to miss at least the next few weeks, so was logically absent from training at Camp des Loges on Monday.Paris Saint-German is hoping that Thiago Motta is fit to face Real Madrid and without him, they are missing a player with similar style. Verratti would be a logical replacement but Emery prefers to play him wider and recently Lo Celso experimented in that position, where he has done alright yet he has not excelled in a position distinctive to his more natural role further forward.??#4 Lack balancePSG vs LyonWhile the MCN gives a lot of firepower to the team, like the BBC at Real and what was the MSN at Barcelona, there is a lack of balance with the forwards not providing their fair share of defensive duties.This is worse for a team like PSG which likes to attack too much with fullbacks like Alves and Kuzawa, always bombing forward.The advantage is that they are very dangerous on the counter-attack and they are level with Lyon with five goals that they have scored on breakaways.???#5 Unai Emery’s lack of control Unai EmeryExpensive collections of inflated egos are common in football but few have surpassed the black hole of self-admiration that exists in Paris. Paris Saint-German for a long time needed a manager capable of managing personalities rather than players but the shrinking management style employed by Emery and Laurent Blanc has led to an ingrained culture of player dominance. This remains the source of the glass ceiling that PSG continually crashes their heads against.Neymar demanding to be the center of attention is not surprising but Emery’s passivity and his ultimate solution of allowing the players to sort out the disagreement between themselves only played into the culture of player dominance. Players do not have any fear of rebuke for poor displays or selfishness as a significant chunk of the first team will be picked no matter what. As a result, Paris Saint-German lacks any semblance of rigour or discipline and players dally in possession and struggled to find any intensity.??
