Referee Szymon Marciniak ruled the goal out without checking the VAR monitor.

Tuchel claims officials do not have the “courage” to give decisions against Real.

He said: “[It’s] not only today. When you play against Real Madrid, maybe you don’t expect everyone has the courage. I felt the little decisions in the first leg and today as well.

“I didn’t see the goal but I am super disappointed he didn’t come out and check it on it’s own. You should stay the boss and not give the decisions to someone in a chair and who is isolated.”

Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) played out an entertaining 1-1 draw with AS Monaco in Ligue 1 on Sunday, August 28.

The hosts came into this game having won all three of their previous games, scoring a whopping 17 goals in the process. Christophe Galtier’s men were keen to maintain their scintillating form against arguably their toughest opposition so far. He made one change, with Renato Sanches starting instead of Vitinha, who was suspended.

Monaco, on the other hand, won their first game against Strasbourg. However, they drew their second game against Rennes and lost 4-1 to Lens last time around, with a player sent off in both games. They were looking to spark a turn in form against the defending champions.

The Parisians made a frantic start to the game, with clumsiness in their own box and fouls off the ball overshadowing their abilities. Neymar was yellow-carded following a come-together with Kevin Volland. The German continued to force the issue and used his physicality to unsettle PSG.

It seemed to work as Monaco surprisingly scored from a rare chance afforded to them. Volland found himself onside and in on goal, and finished with aplomb to make it 1-0 to the visitors after 20 minutes. However, he suffered a knock and was subbed off shortly after.

Monaco continued to use innovative tactics to slow the game down, often staying down longer than needed or taking their own time in dead ball situations. This seemed to affect PSG’s players as well as their fans, as several boos were heard around the Parc des Princes. Maghnes Akliouche was the first player to be booked for the visitors.

PSG had chances to score, hitting the woodwork twice in the space of seconds via Lionel Messi and Kylian Mbappe. However, they could not equalize and trailed by a goal heading into the break.

Both sides made encouraging starts to the second period, looking to take control and set the tone. The visitors’ hard-tackling and harrassing style caused problems for PSG, but they were soon dealt with strictly by the referee.

The hosts were awarded a penalty midway through the half as Sergio Ramos was fouled inside the box. The decision was confirmed following a VAR check. Neymar stepped up and duly scored from the spot. Monaco continued to sit deep and stick to their plans as they made a few changes to avoid yet another sending off.

After a frenetic second half which saw several come-togethers between players from both sides, the game ended in a 1-1 draw. That said, let’s take a detailed look at how the hosts’ players fared in the game.

According to this report, Ten Hag is looking to modify the structure in order to fit the classic Dutch style of play he used at AFC Ajax. Cristiano doesn’t agree with this, according to La Republicca and he would be willing to leave the institution. Chances of playing at a different club point at a possible return to Sporting Clube Lisbon, where Ronaldo’s career started. However, nothing is set in stone yet.

Other reasons Ronaldo could leave Man United.
For Cristiano Ronaldo, being able to continue playing the UEFA Champions League is absolutely essential for him. Manchester United finished the 2021-22 Premier League season with a measly 58 points and in sixth place, which leaves them out of the tournament for next season. With only a year left on his contract, Cristiano can definitely use this as the main reason to leave the club this summer.

This scenario would definitely leave Sporting Clube out as a possible next destination. Despite being 37 years of age, Cristiano Ronaldo still seems like he wants to continue playing at the highest level for at least one more season. Keep in mind he wants to remain competitive in order to play what will likely be his last World Cup in December. One of these destinations might encourage his fans.

Cristiano Ronaldo returned to the Premier League, the hardest league in the world, at 37 years of age.

He finished 3rd in the scoring charts on 18, in the worst Manchester United team of the Premier League era.
