Round of 16 match between the first and second in Ligue 1 in the Coupe de France, the 2 JMG academicians from Algeria wearing the uniform of OGC Nice, managed to win against PSG at the Parc des Princes.
In a match where the people of Nice proved to be solid and patient, the Parisians led by Lionel Messi in the animation of the game and a very restless Marco Verratti could not destabilize the block of Hicham Boudaoui’s teammates who was on starting line-up and had more to defend in midfield than to go on the offensive. The battle was indeed raging in the midfield. Boudaoui , in a winger role in 4-4-2, made a very good performance during the 75 minutes he played before giving up his place.
For his part, Youcef Atal made his debut in the second period. The Algerian came on replacing Lotomba and managed to maintain his team’s defensive solidity. the entries of Mbappé and Atal gave more offensive freshness to the flanks on both sides. Except that M’bappé attacked on the side for his own while, in his favorite lane, Atal responded with stealthy counter-attacks which had made the Parisian defense uncomfortable. When the referee whistles the end of the match, the two clubs faced each other in penalties.
A penalty shootout that smiled on the teammates of Boudaoui and Atal. Atal perfectly transformed a shot into the net of Donnarumma’s. 5-4 for Nice who will face Olympique de Marseille in the next round.
