The Paris Saint-Germain U19s team lost 3-2 to their counterparts from Le Havre in their National U19 Championship Round 24 fixture at the Stade de la Cavée Verte on Sunday, 17 April.
THE STARTING XI
Randriamamy - Bodiang, El Hannach, Bitshiabu, Najeh - Bikouta, Kari, Zaire-Emery, Gassama, Yansane, Ganouni.
In spite of their good intentions, the Parisiens had a tough first half, with the Normandy team opening the scoring in the first quarter of an hour (1-0, 15'). In the second half, Le Havre quickly made the break (2-0, 50'). Stung but far from being defeated, the capital club's U19s got back on level terms on the hour-mark thanks to a superb double from Djeidi Gassama, scored in the space of two minutes (2-1, 60'; 2-2, 62'). However, just as the Parisians thought they would be going home with a draw, the Normans struck again to snatch the victory in the very last seconds of the match (3-2, 90').
Although the Paris Saint-Germain U19s lost in Normandy, they still sit atop the National U19 standings with 59 points.
The U19s will host Caen in their Round 25 league fixture at 15:00 on Sunday, 1 May.
