Pre-Season Friendly: Sturm Graz 3 Paris Saint-Germain 1

9 July 2013 21:25

Laurent Blanc's reign as Paris Saint-Germain boss got off to a disappointing start as his side were thrashed by Sturm Graz on Tuesday.

Robert Beric and Marco Djuricin struck within two minutes of each other to hand the hosts a 2-0 lead before half-time and Nikola Vujadinovic extended their advantage late on.

Hervin Ongenda did restore some pride for the French side with five minutes remaining, but Blanc is unlikely to be concerned by the efforts of a team that contained few first-choice stars.

The former France boss named a starting line-up shorn of the likes Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Marco Verratti and Javier Pastore, though their hosts also experimented with the inclusion of new arrivals Beric and Djuricin.

And the Austrian side were treated to a preview of what they might expect in the coming season, as the pair both got on the scoresheet in quick succession with 25 minutes gone.

Beric opened the scoring after deceiving goalkeeper Nicolas Douchez twice, before Djuricin doubled the lead in the 28th minute with a fine finish.

Darko Milanic's men were forced to wait until the 77th minute to add to their total, but did so when centre-back Vujadinovic poked in from close range.

But Ongenda still had time to add respectability to PSG's defeat, as he met the ball ahead of goalkeeper Christian Gratzei to score.
