On this day, Lee Kang-in was listed on the starting list. It was a natural choice because I had enough rest in the last league match against AS Monaco. In the first half, Lee Kang-in came out as a left-center midfielder, where Vitinha played in the last game, and showed good teamwork with Kylian Mbappe, creating several threatening opportunities.
In the second half of the 0-1 deficit, he switched positions with Fabian Lewis and played as a right-center midfielder. Luis Enrique’s intention was to play more comfortably on the right and create an equalizer by utilizing Lee Kang-in, who had a good chemistry with Ashraf Hakimi in previous games.
Lee Kang-in performed well overall. It served as a lubricant in attack operations with appropriate pass supply. As a set piece kicker, he created a good opportunity and advanced the ball to the opposing side with dribbles and passes.
He was more outstanding defensively in this game. Lee Kang-in has turned the opponent’s attack into nothing several times with proper positioning and forward pressure. In the 13th minute of the first half, when Miguel Almirón took a chance in the penalty box, he failed with a neat tackle that only cleared the ball. In the 39th minute of the first half, Tino Livramento’s good dribble and pass was blocked with a good position.
However, there was also a residual loss. As the game progressed, Lee Kang-in’s passes were more and more often short or inaccurately connected. In the 9th minute of the second half, he was warned by pulling the uniform of Brunu Guimarães, who went on a counterattack after losing the ball with a disappointing touch. Lee Kang-in left the stadium in the 37th minute of the second half as he was replaced by Marco Asensio.
On this day, PSG barely made it back from hell. In the 25th minute of the first half, he went on the offensive after giving up the first goal to Aleksander Isak, but he rarely scored. Then, in the second half of the extra time, Usman Dembele drew a handball from Livramento to win a penalty, which Mbappe finished to create a dramatic draw. As a result, he secured the second place in the group and gained an advantage in advancing to the round of 16.
