Neymar wobbles off as Moise Kean’s brace seal win for PSG

1 min read

Moise Kean scored a brace as Paris Saint-Germain struggled to a 2-0 victory away to Istanbul Basaksehir in the Champions League.

The game started badly for the visitors with Neymar going off with a suspected groin injury in the first half to add to their injury list which includes Julian Draxler, Juan Bernat, Leandro Paredes, Mauro Icardi and Marco Verratti.

And it was the Turkish side, making their home debut in the group stage, who impressed more in the first half with their defending and former Manchester United fullback Rafael going close to scoring.

Thomas Tuchel’s side slowly grew into the half with Kylian Mbappe spurning two good chances.

The second half was following a similar pattern, with Keylor Navas denying Istanbul on numerous occasions, until the hosts switched off at the back momentarily and Mbappe’s corner was headed in by an unmarked Kean.

And the on-loan Everton striker sealed victory with a volley from close range after another Mbappe assist to give PSG their first points of their European campaign.
