The match ended in a big win for PSG. PSG started the game in a 4-2-4 formation. Up front, Lee Kang-In, Kylian Mbappe, Gonzalo Hamus, and Ousmane Dembele started. In the midfield, Fabian Luis and Warren Zaire Emery held down the fort. The defense was made up of Nordy Moukiele, Milan Skriniar, Marquinhos, and Carlos Soler. Gianluigi Donnarumma wore the goalkeeping gloves.
Mbappe scored in the third minute of the first half to give PSG the lead. With Mbappe’s goal coming so quickly, it looked like PSG were going to cruise to victory, but Reims fought back. Reims pressed high up the pitch, and when they won the ball, they were quick to move up and attack, threatening the goal. Gianluigi Donnarumma was able to hold on and keep the clean sheet.
Ito’s performance was outstanding. Ito is Reims’ ace winger. Born in 1993, the Japanese international winger began his European career with Henk in 2019. He used his blistering speed to develop into a key winger for Henk, winning the Belgian league title. His stock rose as he became the league’s assist leader. After leaving Henk, Junya moved to the French Ligue 1. Reims was his destination. In his first season, he made the leap to the first team and anchored the Reims side.
He was a breakout star for Reims last season, scoring six goals and providing five assists in 35 Ligue 1 games. This season, he was also in good form with two goals and two assists in 11 games before the match against PSG. Ito tormented PSG from his position on the right with his devastating breakaway ability. He even had a goal disallowed for offside.
On the day, Ito had two shots on target, eight key passes, five successful dribbles, five successful crosses (15 attempts), and an 83.3% passing success rate. Despite Ito’s performance, Reims was unable to score. PSG brought on Vitinha at the start of the second half to boost their attack, and Mbappe completed his hat trick with two more goals. Despite being outplayed by Reims, PSG held on for a 3-0 victory and continued their unbeaten Ligue 1 run.
Despite the loss, Ito was well-received. His rating of 7.8 on Fúscore.com was the highest in Reims. Ito made a proper show of force in front of Lee Kang-in.
