He came on as a substitute, but was quick on his feet. Lee made his presence felt amidst the ‘bad luck in the goal’, but his team fell short.
Lee Kang-in’s club Paris Saint-Germain (PSG), the French champions, lost 1-2 in the fourth match of Group F of the UEFA Champions League (UCL) for the 2023-24 season at the San Siro in Milan, Italy, on Aug. 8.
With two wins and two losses (6 points), PSG slipped to second place behind Borussia Dortmund (7-2 W, 1 D, 1 L-Germany), who defeated Newcastle United (England) 2-0 earlier in the day. AC Milan, which picked up its first win of the tournament, moved up to third (5-1 W, 2 D, 1 L). Last-place Newcastle has also accumulated four points and is now separated from first-place Dortmund by a single point. It’s shaping up to be one hell of a group.레모나토토 도메인
After happily claiming his first goal for PSG and his UCL debut in the home win over AC Milan, Lee came on as a 15th-minute substitute in the second half, looking for his second consecutive attacking point in the competition and fourth in all competitions, but it didn’t come. In the final minute of the game, after beating his opponent with a characteristic upper-body shake on the right side of the goal area, Lee’s left-footed shot hit the post. Lee now has two goals and one assist in official matches this season.
It was PSG who took the early lead. PSG opened the scoring in the ninth minute of the first half when a header from a corner kick by Markinus was tipped over by Milan Skriniar in the box.
AC Milan responded immediately. In the 12th minute of the first half, Haphaël Leroy scored a stunning overhead kick to level the game just three minutes later. Olivier Giroud, the “French superstar” who is tied for second on the Serie A scoring charts with six goals this season, put the game out of reach with a long, high header five minutes into the second half. Theo Hernandez sent in a cross from the left, and Giroud rose high to head it into the PSG net.
PSG made three substitutions in the second half, including the introduction of Lee Kang-in in the 15th minute. Lee started at left midfield and energized the PSG attack with his sharp forward passes. He also took free kicks and corners. In the 44th minute, Lee outmuscled his opponent on the right side of the goal area and unleashed a powerful left-footed shot that struck the right post.
According to soccer stats site Footmob, Lee had a 96% passing success rate, 100% dribbling success rate, and 67% aerial contest success rate. Footmob gave Lee a rating of 7.0. This is the highest score for a substitute on either team.
