Paris Saint-Germain endured a disappointing campaign by their standards in 2018-19 as they claimed the league title but missed out on both domestic cup competitions and suffered embarrassment in the Champions League last-16 stage. Wounded, the club will attempt to bounce back this time around but has been left distracted by the Neymar situation, with the Brazilian apparently seeking to manufacture a move away from the club. For the time being, though, it looks more probable that he will remain in France for at least one more season. PSG have allowed a number of players to depart, though the only one of particular consequence immediately to the first team is Adrien Rabiot, which was a move that was coming since January. They may regret allowing the likes of academy products Moussa Diaby, Christopher Nkunku and Tim Weah to leave so cheaply in the future, though. Veterans Gianluigi Buffon and Dani Alves have also gone. The players, signed for their ‘champions’ mentality, proved to be flops in France and will not be significantly missed. PSG have moved to address some of their long-standing problems, such as the defensive midfield issue, with Idrissa Gueye and Ander Herrera arriving from Everton and Manchester United respectively, removing the need to play Marquinhos in that unfamiliar role. Abdou Diallo has joined from Dortmund to add further depth to the defence, while Pablo Sarabia has arrived from Sevilla as a creative force for the midfield. Domestically, PSG should be able to sweep away their opponents with the power of their attacking line, which is among the best in Europe. Questions remain, however, with regards their mentality on the big stage. In two of the last three years they have lost out in the Champions League after holding an apparently unassailable first-leg advantage, which has damaged the club’s reputation. As such, they have found it difficult to land the players they would have wished, specifically Matthijs de Ligt and Frenkie de Jong. This is a team that has much to prove over the next 12 months.

Target


The league title should be a formality. Improvement in the Champions League is likely to be a necessity for the coach to keep his job.

Season Review
2018/2019

Champions: Paris St Germain

Paris Saint-Germain might have won Ligue 1, accruing an impressive 91 points in the process, but the season is not one that will be reflected upon particularly positively in the French capital. While they started the campaign well, after Christmas they went downhill significantly, notably after another embarrassing Champions League exit, this time at the hands of a poor Manchester United side. Thomas Tuchel had not been happy with the work done by the club in the transfer window last summer, yet, before injuries and suspensions struck, PSG looked as strong as ever. Once depleted, though, the patchwork nature of their squad became evident, with gaping holes in several areas of their side. Centre forward was the area where this was most starkly evident, with Eric Choupo-Moting, a player who would not habitually be a starter at perhaps half Ligue 1 clubs, the backup to Edinson Cavani. At a team with the ambitions of PSG, far more is needed. Kylian Mbappe was outstanding throughout the campaign, netting 32 Ligue 1 goals, while Neymar was again impressive, though again struck by a significant injury at an inopportune moment. Backup options here, though, were strong, with Angel Di Maria an underrated performer. The heart of the midfield was a problem area, with a fall out with Adrien Rabiot, which saw him frozen out for the final half of the season, another major point of contention. Leandro Paredes, who was signed to replace him, was a poor addition and it is tough to see how he might improve in the months ahead. So significant were PSG’s midfield problems, Dani Alves and Juan Bernat, natural full-backs, both featured not irregularly in that sector of the park. One area that PSG were well stocked was in these wide defensive sectors, while in the heart of the defence they were also formidable. Goalkeeper proved to be a headache for an entirely different reason as Alphonse Areola vied for No.1 spot with Gianluigi Buffon, a player whose addition probably did more harm than good, with the Italian legend well beyond his best for the duration of the campaign. Although PSG finished the season as Ligue 1 champions, they have significant rebuilding work to be done over the summer, particularly as there is no certainty that star men Neymar and Kylian Mbappe will both be at the club come August. More than anything, they need a smarter transfer policy.
