In the final of the Champions League, Paris Saint-Germain lost to the Vardar Skopje (23-24). The Parisians never mastered their subject and were beaten on the last action.
If the Parisians had flaunted a serenity yesterday in the semifinals, it is not exactly the same case at the start of the game. After twenty minutes of play, Paris is led by three goals (4-7, 19 ‘) and can thank Thierry Omeyer if he is still in the game. With nine stops in the first act, the Paris goalkeeper is decisive, as well as Nikola Karabatic, who takes the weight of the match on his shoulders at the end of the first half. While the Vardar cages, the semi-center of the PSG gets angry and does not hesitate to put the head where his team-mates do not dare to do it. It causes twice two minutes and score three times to put Paris back in the right direction and even better, ahead. Thierry Omeyer stops Cindric’s last attempt and the PSG, after being battered for twenty minutes returns to the locker room with a short advantage, 12-11.
But everything becomes complicated for a team when the goalkeeper passes from extraordinary to normal. And even if Mikkel Hansen resists, Skopje takes control of the game and three goals ahead of the scoreboard (17-20, 44 ‘). But when the balls become important, Luka Cindric’s team-mates start to stall. While the Parisians are talking about their experience. Inevitably, at this game, it is immediately simpler when one has in his ranks Luc Abalo or Daniel Narcisse. Three consecutive stops and Paris have the ball to pass in front, but Hansen loses it and Dibirov goes off to convert the offering (21-22, 54 ‘). That could have been the turn of the game, if Thierry Omeyer had not existed. Two stops, including one on the first match of the match against Dibirov, still allow the Parisians to continue to believe, especially since Daniel Narcisse equalizes in force at seven seconds of the term. But Ivan Cupic, off to his wing, deceives Omeyer to create one of the biggest surprises in the history of Final Four (23-24, FM).
