The LOSC could not fold the PSG

Nothing works. The LOSC, however well placed to drop the giant Paris which he is the dolphin, did not rise to the challenge and lost on the lawn of the Parc des Princes, 2-1.

Paris continues to crush the Ligue 1 asit already totals 36 points and now has 11 lengths ahead of the Mastiffs.

The LOSC, which has not been unworthy, resisted and tried to upset the club of the capital, but ended up cracking in the last half hour against the Parisian stars, even if Nicolas Pépé reduces the score on penalty in the additional time (90e + 3).

From the beginning of the match, Lille have not let themselves be impressed and it is Xeka who makes the first shot on target (8e), before Jonathan Bamba unscrews his recovery in the surface (12e).

However,e PSG does not take long to impose his domination but Mbappé and Marquinhos miss the frame (10e and 23e) while Angel Di Maria stumbles on Mike Maignan (22)e).

The porter Lille is close to being surprised on a free kick from Neymar (38e) and a direct corner from Di Maria (39e).

Lille bends, but does not break, like the captain Adama Soumaoro who throws himself to counter a shot from Mbappé (45e) and hijacks a center of Neymar (50th).

70 minutes to open the scoring

PSG finally manages to find the fault with a little success: an opening of Neymar is diverted by José Fonte in the race of Mbappé, who unleashes from twenty meters a superb curling shot (1-0, 70e).

While the LOSC is discovering more and more to try to equalize, Paris pushes the nail thanks to its stars : Neymar makes a one-two with Mbappé in front of the surface and before triggering a shot that Soumaoro diverts, taking his goalkeeper against (2-0, 84e).

The reduction of the score of Pepe on a penalty caused by a hand of Kehrer is anecdotal (90e + 3) and do not spoil the party of Parisians, who have forgotten on the ground the setbacks behind the scenes: the "Football Leaks" accusing the Paris club of circumventing the rules of financial fair play with the complicity of UEFA and Marco Verratti arrested for driving while intoxicated.

PSG broke the record of consecutive wins early in the season in the five major leagues owned by Tottenham since the 1960-1961 season. The Paris club had equaled the mark of the Londoners (11) last Sunday by winning in Marseille (2-0).

Mbappé, future gold ball?

Kylian Mbappé "will be Ballon d'Or many times"estimated at a press conference Christophe Galtier, returning to the performance of the French prodigy."He is one of the world class players as are Cristiano Ronaldo or Lionel Messi. He's going fast, but he's very strong technically. He does not need spaces to express himself. "

The 19-year-old international striker scored his eleventh goal of the season on Friday night. "It's a monster. He's going to be one of the best player in the world"added Tuchel, his own coach.

Coaching feedback

Christophe Galtier (LOSC) : "Paris was really strong, we did not have 2 or 3 seconds to breathe, we knew the individual, technical and transition quality of this team and they strove to choke us as soon as they lost the ball. We were squeezed in. The quality of the opponent meant that we were choked, we did not have any opportunities, they gave us no hope, we were dominated and we were never in the sense of the game, we have not had any situations, I have rarely seen my strikers in the direction of the goal, it proves the determination they made to get the ball high. below their level I do not think Paris has been much better than in the last few matches, there is a lot of difference, and to be able to win against Paris, you have to be on top in all sectors and Paris was a little worse tonight, they were at the top, so, automatically, we did not exist in this We know how to do it well, we tried to defend ourselves well, but that's not enough. Paris prevented us from developing the game. "

Thomas Tuchel (PSG) : "I think it was our best game this season, it was necessary against this opponent and it will be necessary on Tuesday night, Naples is another style and it will be a big challenge. After this good game, it was necessary to play with a lot of quality and we did it, it was a magnificent performance, a big effort of the team, there was a lot of structure, possession of the ball. We closed the spaces, we controlled the counterattacks completely during the whole match and it was difficult, because I think that Lille is one of the best teams in Europe in terms of counter-attacks. , very disciplined and it is necessary to congratulate my team. (On non-tenure of Adrien Rabiot): It was not punished tonight Julian (Draxler) did a good match in Marseilles by taking its responsibilities. play today with two N.6 to control the counterattacks. a difficult decision, but it's my job to do it.
