Despite a stunning draw against Juventus Turin, PSG qualify for the 8th in the Youth League

And suddenly, the old demons of the first team resurfaced. Those of an unlikely scenario that precipitates the exit of Paris Saint-Germain in the Champions League and in particular one evening in March 2017 at Camp Nou… The under-19s of the Parisian club went through these moments of doubt, Wednesday, in added time from their last day of the group stage against Juventus Turin.

Without several executives – Warren Zaire-Emery, El-Chadaille Bitshiabu summoned in the first team -, the Parisians however dominated the debates for 90 minutes, in the wake of their playmaker, Ismaël Gharbi, author of the first goal of the meeting (6th). Ilyes Housni, 17, then showed his finishing skills again. The Parisian titi scored his seventh goal in six Youth League games (19th).

Extra time of madness

In the second half, Juventus got closer to PSG, through Kenan Yildiz (50th). But Housni (57th) then Gharbi (84th) sheltered theirs, seemingly for the month. It was without counting on the red card conceded by defender Nehemiah Fernandez (75th) and the naivety of the young shoots of Zoumana Camara.

In extra time of madness, Yildiz (90th), Dean Huijsen (90th +4) then Lorenzo Anghele (90th +5) then took the opportunity to make a fantastic comeback. Too late to prevent Paris Saint-Germain from finishing first in their group and going directly to the knockout stages.
