PSG Down Atletico for Tuchel’s First Win

Virgiliu Postolachi netted in injury-time as Paris Saint-Germain edged Atletico Madrid 3-2 in a pulsating game in Singapore on Monday.

Postolachi, 18, curled a stunning shot past Antonio Adan to settle the friendly after Atletico had recovered from 2-0 down as Thomas Tuchel records his first win in charge of the Parisians.

PSG welcomed back Angel Di Maria after World Cup duty and Italy’s Marco Verratti, but it was Christopher Nkunku and Moussa Diaby who put them 2-0 up.

Victor Mollejo pulled one back for Atletico before an own goal from Antoine Bernede on 86 minutes levelled the tie.

It looked like it was headed for a draw until Postolachi popped up with the decisive strike from the top of the penalty area.

The win was welcome for German newcomer Tuchel, whose under-strength French champions have fallen 3-1 and 5-1 to Bayern Munich and Arsenal in their previous pre-season friendlies.
