Lee Kang-in’s streak of attacking points came to an unfortunate halt.
Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) came from behind to defeat AC Milan 1-2 at the San Siro in Milan, Italy, on Monday (Aug. 8) in the fourth leg of their 2023-2024 UEFA Champions League (UCL) Group F matchup. PSG (6 points) remained in second place, unable to overtake Borussia Dortmund (7 points), who moved to the top of the group with the first leg.
PSG took the lead in the ninth minute when center back Milan Skriniar scored from a corner kick, but the advantage didn’t last long. They conceded in the 12th minute through an overhead kick by Milan striker Raphael Varane. Five minutes into the second half, they pulled a goal back. Olivier Giroud’s header from a Theo Hernandez cross rattled the PSG net past Gianluigi Donnarumma.
Lee started the match from the bench after not training fully due to injury concerns. After conceding the lead, PSG coach Luis Enrique made three substitutions in the final 15 minutes to try and turn things around, with Lee joining Gonzalo Hamus and Fabian Luis on the bench. He came on for Vitinha.
Lee, who was diligently creating chances for his team, had a chance of his own in the 44th minute. He received a forward pass from Ashraf Hakimi and entered the penalty box. Giroud was blocked in front of him, but a split-second move allowed him to evade and shoot with his left foot. His left-footed strike was low and headed for the right corner of the goal, but it hit the post. 토토사이트
In his 30 minutes of action, Lee had one shot on goal, one successful dribble, one successful tackle, and one successful aerial contest, according to soccer stats site Hooscore.com. His passing success rate was 96 percent.
Lee has been in fine form since returning from his Asian Games gold medal and A-match debut last month. In his first appearance in a PSG shirt, he set up the winner against Strasbourg in the ninth round of the French Ligue 1. This was followed by three consecutive games in which he was directly involved in a goal. He scored his PSG debut in the third leg of the UCL against Milan, followed by assists and goals against Stade Brest and Montpellier in the league. Against Milan, he found the back of the net for the fourth consecutive game, only to be halted by a disappointing strike against the post.
