The last match of the 2018 International Champions Cup hosted in Singapore ensured that every competing club had a slice of victory. Last night (30 July), Paris Saint-Germain earned that slice against Atletico de Madrid with a final score of 3-2.

 

Paris Saint-Germain secured the lead after a goal by Christopher Nkunku on the 31st minute mark. With the French claiming majority of the possession, victory seemed certain, especially after a second goal by Moussa Diaby.

 

However, the last 20 minutes made it seem that a comeback was due for the Spaniards as Victor Mollejo scored followed by an own goal by Antoine Bernede after Borja Garces’ ball ricocheted off the midfielder.

 

Virgiliu Postolachi would deny Atletico de Madrid after a goal in overtime. Paris Saint-Germain currently ranks 9th in the tournament.

 

Now in it’s sixth edition, the football summer highlight of the year continues it’s global tour. Tomorrow (1 August) alone will feature Manchester United going up against Real Madrid in Hard Rock Stadium in Miami, while Tottenham Hotspur and AC Milan will come face to face in the U.S. Bank Stadium in Minneapolis.

 

Here are some of the highlights from the match at the National Stadium:
