Lorient Gave Pochettino A Surprise

By | February 1, 2021

PARIS: Paris Saint-Germain lost for the first time under Mauricio Pochettino when Lorient defeated them 3-2, allowing Lille to seize the Ligue 1 throne.

Neymar completed two penalty kicks but the visitors were shocked by the hosts’ upside at the end of the game, with Terem Moffi blasting the winning goal in injury time.

PSG slipped to third place in the league, one point behind Lyon who occupy second place, while Lille two points ahead of Lyon after they beat Dijon 1-0.

“We need to maintain the positive aspects and keep moving forward. Accidents can happen in football.

“We have to keep working. It makes us realize that it can happen if we don’t play at 100 percent,” Pochettino said.

It was the first defeat in six games for Pochettino since he replaced the sacked Thomas Tuchel.

The last time a PSG player scored two penalty goals in a Ligue 1 match was through Zlatan Ibrahimovic in 2015.
