The Spanish international Pablo Sarabia and Kylian Mbappé led the clear victory of Paris Saint Germain in their second friendly on their Japanese tour, this time against the Urawa Red Diamonds led by the Spanish Ricardo Rodríguez.
Sarabia opened the account in the 16th minute and Mbappé extended the account in the 35th. Arnaud Kalimuendo, who also scored in the first match, closed the match with a goal a quarter of an hour from time.
Christophe Galtier started with Keylor Navas, Diallo, Danilo, Kehrer, Bernat, Ebimbe, Verratti, Zaire-Emery, Sarabia, Icardi and Mbappé. PSG will end their tour on Monday with the third friendly, against Gamba Osaka.
In the second half, Messi and Neymar, acclaimed by the Saitama Stadium, entered the field. Both made several very dangerous plays, remembering their best versions that gave Barcelona so much joy in their day. Sergio Rico, who came on for Keylor Navas, avoided the 2-1 with a brilliant save in a total act of reflexes.
In the final stretch of the match, Neymar, who came out on the pitch highly motivated, enabled Nuno Mendes to assist Kalimuendo. The PSG youth squad scored his second goal in two games in Japan and sent a message to the club that they can count on his services to act as a substitute for Mbappé. A resounding victory for PSG, which is beginning to be the team it claims.
