The Paris Saint-Germain team will challenge the Cerezo Osaka team in a Friendly Match in Yanmar Stadium Nagai Stadium, Osaka on Friday, July 28, 2023. For streaming coverage of PSG vs Cerezo Osaka, preview and how to watch it, see in this article.
PSG, a wealthy club from France, is on a pre-season tour in Japan. They will face Cerezo Osaka at the Yanmar Field Nagai stadium on Friday (27/7). This is Paris SG’s second international friendly, after being held to a draw by Al-Nassr.
PSG have had an amazing season winning the League 1 title. They have also started the new season with a 2-0 win over Le Havre. However, they were unable to pull off a win over Al-Nassr, the club that owns star Cristiano Ronaldo, in their second friendly match. The match ended in a 0-0 draw.
In fact, even though PSG won against Le Havre, they also had to thank the goals from Ekitike and Mbappe which beat their opponents 2-0. When there is no Mbappe in the team, Neymar is not playing, and Messi has moved to Inter Miami, then PSG’s front line really lacks striking power.
This situation is a big problem that Luiz Enrique, PSG’s new coach, has to solve, especially when Mbappe doesn’t want to extend his contract. PSG management also did not handle this situation well for various reasons.
However, PSG will also need to buy a new striker, even if Mbapee stays, because relying solely on him for the entire 2023/24 season makes no sense. Harry Kane is a target being pursued by PSG. They have an advantage over Bayern Munich in terms of financial ability and expenses. Of course PSG must immediately complete this agreement.
Meanwhile, Cerezo Osaka are fifth in the Japanese league standings but it is difficult to hope for a title, as they are nine points behind leaders Vissel Kobe (35 compared to 44). Therefore, the suitable goal for Cerezo Osaka is to try to get the runner-up position.
In the friendly against Al Nassr, PSG were without striker Lionel Messi and defender Sergio Ramos as both players left the club after their contracts expired. Instead, PSG has added several new players such as Manuel Ugarte, Milan Skriniar, Marco Asensio or Lucas Hernandez.
Meanwhile, striker Mbappe did not take part in the pre-season tour with his colleagues to Japan and South Korea this summer. This makes his future mysterious. On the other hand, Cerezo Osaka has the best of their strengths.
