PSG U19 had no problem beating RB Leipzig on matchday three of the Youth League group stage. Winners with a 3-0 scoreline thanks to goals from Odobert, Simons and Bitshiabu, could even have scored twice as many goals given the number of chances they have generated, especially the young Dutchman in charge.

The PSG U19 coached by Zoumana Camara had their first win in this Youth League 2021/2022 and it was against the very limited German RB Leipzig. With a great 3-0 victory that was built from minute 12 of the game thanks to a goal by Odobert in a great collective action in which Kari, Gassama and Simons participated notably, PSG relaunched in the race for qualification , tying City and Bruges (1-1) in the other match.

Simons, the most outstanding

All the young players in the capital responded and played up to the task, with some players deserving a special mention: Bitishiabu dominated to a great extent in central defense, Bodiang encouraged his right lane, Zaire-Emery at times showed all his qualities, Michut he did damage with his movements in the last third of the field, Gassama was poisoned by his percussion and Odobert opened the scoring with a well-placed shot.

However, if there is an architect for good football led by Zoumana Camara, it is Xavi Simons. For this match, he was placed as '9', which would win him duels with great precision, he gave many good balls, scored and weighed throughout the match in each Parisian attack, ordering these with great intelligence. Faced with a really limited team and that generally does not have much to do in this elite competition that is the Youth League, the young Dutchman was well above the rest and confirms his great Youth campaign.

Simons, has also been tested in the position of center forward, where he has been able to respond, but it seems that as a 'false 9' is where he has the most potential, and where he contributes the most to the team.
