The (big) performance: PSG humiliates Lille

PSG has finally found a reference match in Ligue 1. The Parisians atomized Losc on their lawn, Sunday evening at Pierre-Mauroy, nine days before the shock in the knockout stages of the Champions League against Real Madrid. Admittedly, they took advantage of two huge blunders from Ivo Grbic, the Lille goalkeeper, to score their first two goals. But they then unrolled to win their biggest success of the season, which is more on the lawn of the one who had robbed them of the title of champion of France last season. Cherry on the cake: Kylian Mbappé found the flaw with a sublime curling strike, and Lionel Messi also scored. A rarity for the « Pulga », which now has two goals in Ligue 1 this season. PSG has in any case reassured itself after its elimination by Nice in the Coupe de France and can prepare more calmly for the clash against Real.

The statement: Mbappé has « not made » a decision on his future

The decision, “it is not taken. Playing against Real Madrid changes a lot of things (…) I’m not going to talk to the opponent. »

The comeback: Saint-Etienne overthrows Montpellier in ten minutes

From hell to heaven, there are only ten minutes. The Greens could see it on Saturday, during their crazy victory acquired at the end of the match against Montpellier (3-1). Led 1-0 for much of the game, ASSE overturned everything thanks to goals from Hamouma (82nd), Nordin (90th) and Khazri (90th +3). With this second victory in a row, after that in Angers in a late match, Pascal Dupraz’s men can believe in an improbable maintenance, an objective which seemed quite utopian a few days ago. With 18 points, the Greens are only two points behind Lorient, the first non-relegation player (20 pts).

The number


Or the number of goals conceded by Bordeaux in barely 23 matches. It must be said that the Bordelais once again sank, Sunday on the lawn of Reims, by conceding a scathing and humiliating 5-0. Despite the rookies lined up at kick-off, the Girondins are now penultimate and more in danger than ever. And to think that their victory against Strasbourg (4-3), last week, seemed to announce a thinning… This new disappointment could in any case be fatal to their coach Vladimir Petkovic, whose position is hanging by a thread.

The lesson: Monaco dominates Lyon

Monaco remained on a defeat in Montpellier, Lyon on three victories in a row including one against OM. However, this was not seen on Saturday, as the Monegasques were superior (2-0). ASM quickly took the lead through Jean Lucas (2nd), the former Lyon midfielder, before doubling the lead through Wissam Ben Yedder (27th). The score could even have been much heavier without several decisive stops from Anthony Lopes in the first period. Upon returning from the locker room, the many changes made by Peter Bosz, including the entries of rookies Romain Faivre and Tanguy Ndombele, will do nothing. Lyon, without ideas, fell to 8th place, 8 points from the podium. Monaco, for its part, moved to 6th place, 6 points behind Nice.

The player: Arkadiusz Milik, the « grantattakan » sees triple

He was criticized and almost systematically replaced in recent weeks? Never mind, the Polish Arkadiusz Milik has proven that he remains a formidable scorer. The former Napoli striker, finally established by his coach Jorge Sampaoli, was the hero of OM’s victory against Angers (5-2) with a superb hat-trick. Milik at the same time revived the debate surrounding the compositions of his coach, who regularly evolved without a professional striker. After this performance, it seems very difficult for Sampaoli to do without his striker in the next matches. OM, now second ahead of Nice, will in any case need Milik to grab a place on the podium.

The counter-performance: Nice loses its second place

All good series come to an end. Nice, which remained on five victories in Ligue 1 and on a penalty shootout against PSG in the Coupe de France, lost on Sunday. Except that not many people expected this defeat against Clermont, which vegetates at the end of the classification (16th). The Aiglons were surprised by a goal from Rashani in the last quarter of an hour (77th), and lost their second place at the same time. The Niçois are now third, one point behind OM… whom they will face on Wednesday in the quarter-finals of the Coupe de France. A poster that promises to be hot.
