Toulouse FC lost 3–1 on the road to FC Nantes in their last game on 28 August. FC Nantes defeated Toulouse FC 15 to 10. Zakaria Abukhlal scored his team’s only goal in the match. Before this soccer matchup, you need to get ready for Wednesday’s action. Paris Saint-Germain was hoping to continue their hot goal-scoring streak against AS Monaco at the Parc des Princes on Sunday. The capital club had trouble finding the back of the net and suffered to eventually come away with the 1-1 draw. Axel Disasi and the Monaco defense played a physical game against PSG that allowed them to throw the French giants, and luck also was on their side, considering the post saved them twice on one play. Nonetheless, Disasi discussed the squad’s tactical game plan to ensure they made life difficult for players like Lionel Messi and Neymar Jr.
“So I think that work there was a big part of our game because we knew we could contain Neymar and Messi in the pocket, so we were in the running, that’s for sure …” PSG will have to put the draw behind them rather quickly as they head to the Stadium de Toulouse for a Wednesday matchup against Toulouse. Lionel Messi’s face was an absolute picture after he was substituted in Paris Saint-Germain’s 1-1 draw with Monaco. A second half penalty from Neymar cancelled out Kevin Volland’s opener to ensure the Ligue One champions remain unbeaten and top of the table after four games. And after playing the full 90 minutes in his last 22 games for PSG, Messi was hooked by manager Christophe Galtier.
He came off the pitch in the 87th minute with PSG searching for a winner and was replaced by Pablo Sarabia. But when the cameras panned to the seven-time Ballon d’Or winner on the bench, Messi looked less than impressed. Normally a player of Messi’s supreme qualities would only be substituted if injured or for a standing ovation in a resounding victory. Pep Guardiola, who took his game to a different level at Barcelona, has previously gone on record to say that Messi should not come off in any circumstances. “You have to listen very carefully to what he has to say and remember that he must never be substituted off the pitch,” Guardiola is quoted as saying, as per The Mirror.
Pep Guardiola’s reaction to Erling Haaland’s hat-trick is incredible “You must not forget that he should not come off, not even at the end of the game to be applauded by the fans.” Sarabia could not inspire a late goal and only had three touches for PSG, who have ten points alongside Marseille and Lens but boast a superior goal difference. Messi has three goals and two assists in his first four games of his second season in the French capital. In the first half against Monaco he struck the post with a vicious strike that rebounded back into the path of Kylian Mbappe, who somehow hit the woodwork again from six yards out. After dropping points for the first time this season, PSG will look to get back to winning ways against Toulouse on Wednesday.
