Paris will therefore have fulfilled all the presidential wishes. To the delight, no doubt, of Nasser Al-Khelaïfi, the French champion consolidated his position as leader of the French Championship this Saturday by securing his seventh success in a row in Ligue 1 on the lawn of Beaujoire (3- 0). He will also have respected, almost to the letter, the injunctions of Emmanuel Macron. If they have left the Canaries by stealing the three points of success from them, we can not say that the PSG players have walked on the occasion of this 9th day. Little rhythm, no madness, far too rare occasions to conclude… despite the great success, we were far from Saturday Nantes fever for Kylian Mbappé and his band at Beaujoire.
The only originalities of this new world afterwards will therefore have been to see Ligue 1 continue its activities, Keylor Navas inheriting the armband, Danilo from a new partner in central defense (Diallo) and Paris leaving in a 4-3 pattern. -3. For the rest, this first day placed under the sign of reconfinement did not reveal any upheavals. As since he signed in Paris in 2017, Neymar has not made the trip to Loire-Atlantique and has, like seven of his partners (Bernat, Florenzi, Icardi, Paredes, Verratti, Draxler and Di Maria), withdrawn.
As is often the case, Paris also suffered, here, against the Canaries, especially during a first period where Moses Simon will have spoiled the luck of his family by missing the inevitable (16th). The Mbappé trigger has also long seemed to be in trouble. But although breathless by the hellish pace, the (00) 7 Parisian killed the match.
Paris knows how to be efficient
After missing the frame twice (26th, 42nd) and being refused a penalty (45th), he first offered the first goal to Herrera (46th), before causing a penalty (generous?) That ‘ he took care to transform to validate his seventh achievement of the season. The third goal scored by Sarabia (88th), combined with the penalty deflected by Keylor Navas (69th) only confirmed the trend. Failing to be good, Paris knows how to be efficient. He, who waited for the 8th day to take control of the championship will not let go like that.
The only real downside is that the infirmary risks welcoming new patients. Moise Kean, rather transparent this Saturday, had to leave his partners because of a pain in a calf. On leaving, Kylian Mbappé returned to the locker room, holding the back of his thigh. After having brought back an injured person from Nîmes (Paredes), Manchester (Gueye), Dijon (Draxler) and Istanbul (Neymar), Thomas Tuchel will therefore return with two more from Nantes. Bad news, again, four days to go to Leipzig for the third day of the Champions League, already capital in the race to the knockout stages.
