PSG Defeats R Sociedad 2-0 in the First Leg of the UCL Round of 16… Lee Kang-in Excluded From the List

Lee Kang-in takes a break due to a virus infection… ‘Best friend’ Kubo full-time

French professional soccer team Paris Saint-Germain (PSG), whose Korean national team midfielder Lee Kang-in was absent due to poor condition, completely defeated Real Sociedad (Spain) and increased their chances of advancing to the quarterfinals of the UEFA Champions League (UCL).

PSG won 2-0 in the first leg of the 2023-2024 UCL round of 16 against Real Sociedad held at Parc des Princes in Paris, France on the 15th (Korean time) with consecutive goals from Kylian Mbappe and others in the second half.

Lee Kang-in, who returned to PSG after completing the 2023 Asian Football Confederation (AFC) Qatar Asian Cup schedule, was unable to be included in the playing list due to being infected with a virus and took a break. 온라인카지노사이트

While Korea was eliminated from the Asian Cup semifinals, the Korean soccer world is in a very chaotic situation after it was revealed that Lee Kang-in and captain Son Heung-min (Tottenham) clashed with Jordan the day before the semifinals.

Japanese midfielder Takefusa Kubo, who was eliminated in the quarterfinals of the Asian Cup, played full-time for Real Sociedad.

Lee Kang-in and Kubo, who are promising players representing both Korea and Japan and have played on the same team, are close friends, so much attention was paid to whether or not the ‘Best Friends Korea-Japan Match’ would take place, but this did not happen due to Lee Kang-in’s poor condition.

If PSG successfully passes the second leg of the round of 16 on the 6th, it will advance to the UCL quarterfinals for the first time in three years since the 2020-2021 season, in which it reached the semifinals.

PSG, which finished second in the 2019-2020 season competition, has never crossed the finals threshold since then.

In the 2021-2022 and 2022-2023 seasons, they were eliminated in the round of 16.

On this day, PSG dominated the game, and Mbappe opened the fire.

Ousmane Dembele’s corner kick from the right ended with Mbappe’s right-footed volley lurking to the left of the goal.

The corner kick bounced off the body of PSG Marquinhos, who was struggling, but luckily it went towards Kylian Mbappe.

PSG predicted victory when Bradley Barcola scored an additional goal in the 25th minute of the second half.

Barcola, who caught the ball on the left side, beat the defender with an exquisite dribble and made it 2-0 with a quick shot that neutralized the other defender and the goalkeeper narrowing the angle.
