PSG defeated West Brom
Paris Saint Germain defeated West Bromwich Albion FC 2-1 in an international friendly at the end of their pre-season training camps in Schladming.
In the past few days both the French top team Paris Saint Germain and the English Premier League club West Bromwich Albion FC have been guests of IFCS for their pre-season training camps in Austria´s Enns valley. So it was logical for both teams to play an international friendly test match.
Despite bad weather hundreds of football fans came to Schladming`s Atlethic Arena to watch this high-class test match. West Brom finished the first half with a 1-0 lead due to an own goal from Paris star David Luiz. After the break the Parisians changed into a higher gear and celebrated a 2-1 victory at manager Unai Emery´s first outing in the Paris Saint-Germain dug-out. Adrian Rabiot and Lucas Moura scored the goals for PSG.
