Emirates Cup 2011 Paris Sg Boca Juniors

Day Two
31 July 2011
Emirates Stadium,
London


Arsenal know that victory against the New York Red Bulls on Sunday will see them retain the Emirates Cup after Boca Juniors’ hopes of lifting the trophy were ended with a 3-0 defeat against Paris Saint-Germain. The victory propels PSG from bottom to top of the standings and ahead of Thierry Henry’s Red Bulls, who occupy second spot and face the hosts in Sunday’s main event, on goal difference. Jean-Eudes Maurice profited from some generous defending to put the Parisians ahead in the opening ten minutes and Guillaume Hoarau took advantage of more slack marking to head the game beyond the reach of Boca just before the interval. Marcos Ceara’s stunning second-half free-kick sealed an impressive win and ensured an entertaining start to the afternoon.

Attention now shifts to Arsenal and the return of a certain Frenchman. The glorious July sunshine that bathed Emirates on Saturday was back for the climax of the weekend. And with the newly-laid pitch in pristine condition we were set for a lovely afternoon of football. Boca had made a slow start against the Gunners on Saturday and were sluggish out of the blocks again today. Only eight minutes were on the clock when Maurice beat goalkeeper Augustin Orien to Anderson Nene’s inswinging corner to poke PSG ahead. A soft goal to concede but the French side were fully deserving of their lead, even at this early stage. The Parisians were playing with an urgency that was lacking in their defeat to the Red Bulls on Saturday. Orien was called upon to make smart saves from Hoarau and Kevin Gameiro as PSG looked to build on their advantage. But, knowing that only victory would be enough to give them a chance of taking the trophy back to South America, Boca finally began to impose themselves on the game.

Sergio Araujo found himself with time and space at the back post and, when his goalbound effort was blocked by a last-ditch intervention from Ceara, Nicolas Colazo thumped the rebound over. Araujo had a wonderful chance to level things up but he fired straight at Alphonse Areola when clean through on goal. It proved a costly miss as PSG went further ahead seven minutes before the break. More slack Boca marking allowed the giant frame of Hoarau to ghost into the area unmarked and glance home Cristian Chavez’s cross without a Boca player in sight. That goal effectively ended the game as a contest. Ceara’s spectacular free-kick lit up an otherwise uneventful second period.

Un dernier galop d'essai convaincant. A moins d'une semaine de la reprise de la Ligue 1, samedi prochain face à Lorient, le Paris Saint-Germain a signé une dernière sortie en amical plutôt convaincante, face à Boca Juniors, dans le cadre de l'Emirates Cup (3-0). Un match à relativiser, puisque, comme la veille, Antoine Kombouaré a décidé d'aligner une équipe mixte, avec seulement cinq titulaires au coup d'envoi: Tiéné, Chantôme, Nenê, et le duo Hoarau-Gameiro en pointe.
Ces deux derniers ont pu continuer de montrer quelques belles preuves de complicité, même si l'arrivée prochaine de Pastore risque d'envoyer l'un des deux sur le banc. Mais le grand bonhomme du match s'appelle Jean-Eudes Maurice, lui à qui les dirigeants parisiens ont d'ores et déjà montré la porte, histoire d'alléger l'effectif. Aligné dans le couloir droit, l'ancien joueur d'Alfortville a tout d'abord coupé un corner de Nenê (1-0, 8e), avant d'offrir le second but à Guillaume Hoarau, d'un centre bien ajusté (2-0, 39e). Un avantage à la pause logique, malgré quelques hésitations défensives de l'improbable duo Camara-Ngoyi. Mais derrière eux, le jeune Alphonse Aréola a veillé, comme sur ce un-contre-un remporté face à Araujo (38e). Agé de 18 ans, le portier a ensuite continuer de prouver que sa réputation de futur grand n'était pas usurpée, en se montrant d'une étonnante sérénité. Un talent qui ne devrait s'exprimer qu'en CFA cette saison, puisque Douchez et Sirigu vont se battre pour la place de titulaire.

Pour le reste, et malgré quelques errements au milieu de terrain, notamment en raison du placement sans doute trop défensif pour lui de Neeskens Kebano, le Paris Saint-Germain a géré, sans se faire trop de frayeur. Les Parisiens vont même corser l'addition sur ce maître coup-franc de Ceara, en fin de rencontre (3-0, 79e). Antoine Kombouaré a désormais une semaine pour trouver le bon équilibre entre les deux équipes mixtes alignées ce week-end. Le tout en intégrant son nouveau joyau, Javier Pastore.
Paris : Aréola - Ceara, Camara, Ngoyi, Tiéné - Maurice (Arnaud, 77e), Chantôme, Kebano, Nenê - Hoarau, Gameiro
