In group B of the Champions League, PSV won last night at home with the smallest difference against Lens. Johan Bakayoko (20) again impressed the Dutch. The young Red Devil provided the assist for the only goal of the match with a fine cross and received praise from the French press.

“His attacking impulses were unparalleled and he almost always made the right choice,” writes ‘Le Figaro’. “He dominated the right flank and caused major problems for both Deiver Machado and Facundo Medina. The Belgian played aggressively and is very fast. He touched the ball more than fifty times and his best action was that formidable cross for De Jong. The striker was also good, but Bakayoko was unmistakably PSV’s attack leader. With his energy he caused a lot of frustration for Lens. He was at the top of his game.”
“There was not much difference between the two teams,” sports newspaper ‘L’Équipe’ writes about PSV-Lens. “It only took one action to give PSV three valuable points. Johan Bakayoko – a bolt – calmly made the difference with his clean assist for De Jong’s goal.”
‘La Voix du Nord’ is also impressed by the speed of our compatriot. “He and fellow winger Hirving Lozano constantly created a threat,” it sounds. “Lens could not get the two express trains under control and they both could have scored.”
Bakayoko was already in the interest of French top club Paris Saint-Germain in the past. He has already presented his calling card in the two matches against Lens. He previously scored on the field of the northern French club. The images:
