Mauro Icardi goal and assist for PSG in 3-0 win vs. Brest

Mauro Icardi scored and had an assist for PSG in their 3-0 win vs. Brest.

Icardi hasn’t had the best of seasons with PSG, having only played 6 matches in the league due to injury. However, with new coach Mauricio Pochettino at the helm, Icardi could be getting more opportunities at the club. With PSG leading 1-0, Icardi was brought on as a substituted and made an impact.

A pass into the penalty area by Mbappe found Icardi who’s right footed shot went through a crowd to double PSG’s lead. But the Argentine wasn’t done just yet. A lovely back heel to Sarabia was the assist for PSG’s third of the match. Still only 27 years old, Icardi is now on three goals and one assist in the league.

Speaking after the match, here’s what PSG coach Mauricio Pochettino had to say about Icardi:

“We have to go slowly. Mauro is coming back from a significant injury. He is working very well. Little by little, he is coming back into the squad, into competitive action. For Mauro, like for all the players, it is important to be able to feel like you have the possibility to play. They also have to be prepared to be ready when they are on the pitch. What I am expecting, is that everyone makes it difficult for me to select my starting XI.”

  1. We still need to keep an eye on Icardi, especially with how fragile Kun these days. We had history of main attacking players getting injured in tournament (Saviola 2004, Crespo 2007, Lavezzi 2016, Di Maria 2014-2016, Aguero 2014).

  2. N. Gonzalez’s style of taking penalties is amusing.Best penalty takers for Argentina are-
    Messi, Aguero,Ocampus, Paredes,N.Gonzalez,Icardi,L.Alario,Dybla.If there is penalty shoot out Argentina has good chance to win.

  3. I really feel bad for Udinese, they’re actually a decent team but they need some1 who can actually finish because with the amount of chances that De Paul creates, a team like Lazio (Immobile) or Inter (Lautaro, Laukaku) or Juve (CR7, Dybala) would be scoring for fun and De Paul would have atleast 7-8 assists by now! I mean I saw the first half of today’s game and Rodrigo created maybe 3 or 4 chances, some like the one to pereyra were clear cut.
    I really hope he moves by the end of the season because his creativity is being totally wasted and he needs to move to a big team where he can cement his world class status because I can honestly say, he’s one of the best CMs out there.
    Musso had some good saves and Molina continues to impress when ever he starts, which sadly isn’t often even though he is noticeably better than Larsan.

    I also got to watch Nico Dominguez a few days ago and he’s getting the hang of his double pivot role even though it’s not where his strength truly lies. The kid is a legit talent but he’s not going anywhere with a hopeless coach like Mijalovic, my hope is that Nico will get to show his stuff during the coming WCQ or Copa (if it happens!) and gets to go to a good club with a good coach.

    • No in a bigger team De Paul will be a system player, just like with Argentina, not a “superstar” creator than in Udinese. Where others are better passers he will be only one of them, not the guy who kicks all the free kicks, all the corner kicks, tries with all the through balls and risky passes. Its true Udinese strikers are poor, 1 assist from 6,72xA.
