French journalist Daniel Riolo has criticized Paris Saint-Germain’s star attacking trio of Lionel Messi, Kylian Mbappe and Neymar Jr after the defending Ligue 1 champions were held to a draw by Reims.
Paris Saint-Germain faced Reims in a Ligue 1 fixture and shared points after playing out a 1-1 draw. Against Reims, PSG took the lead through Neymar Jr in the 51st minute of the match.
Marco Verratti received a red card in the 59th minute of the match, which meant PSG had to play the remainder of the game with just 10 men. They came close to securing all three points from the fixture, but a late Reims goal denied them the victory.
Folarin Balogun scored in the 90+6th minute of the match as Reims restored parity late in the game and held PSG to a draw.
