Reporting on the impact of the coronavirus on the sports world
Paris Saint-Germain took first place in Ligue 1 after a 4-2 away win at Olympique Lyonnais on Sunday, along with the surprising 1-2 loss from Lille OSC to Nimes Olympique a few hours earlier. The French champions wasted little time taking the lead at the Groupama Stadium. Kylian Mbappe opened the goal after 15 minutes with the first of his two goals of the night from an acute angle.
Danilo Pereira doubled PSG’s lead just after half an hour with a volley from Marquinhos’ header down, and the men Mauricio Pochettino’s had full control at halftime with a two-goal cushion.
Just two minutes into the second half, the score was 3-0 when an Angel Di Maria free-kick in the Lyon goal got past Anthony Lopes and Mbappe a few minutes later after four minutes from Marco Verratti scored four important goals for Keylor Navas.
Islam Slimani withdrew one for OL just after the hour and Maxwel Cornet added a second nine minutes before the end, but it Rudi Garcia’s home team was not enough to avoid a heavy home defeat, with PSG three points ahead of LOSC and LOSC. AS Monaco are only one point behind.
Of potential concern f For Les Parisiens, Mbappe asked for a retreat later in the game. Despite being replaced by a returning Neymar, the Frenchman’s fitness will be paramount.
100 – Kylian Mbappé has scored eight goals against Lyon in Ligue 1 and only bettered against Dijon (11). He has reached the 100 goals in the top division (84 with Paris, 16 with Monaco). Amazing. pic.twitter.com/vfMDuZzyPk
Although they conceded two goals in the second half, the men from the capital showed a lot of sense and concentration in the first 45 minutes and led 2-0.
It has to be there be on top as the best half of domestic football has played all season and it has allowed PSG to bring daylight between them and Lyon before the hosts tried to make a comeback. It was Les Parisiens’ first win over a title rival this season and it came at the right time when Pochettino’s men took their chance to take first place after Lille slipped.
🎙️ Anthony Lopes: « We didn’t play the first hour. We have to go on. We can’t do that against PSG. We have to react quickly because what we did tonight was unacceptable. » # OLPSG pic.twitter. com / tHNY746cYd
Slimani and Cornet’s goals were well deserved after a huge improvement in the last 30 minutes, but the big question is why it took so long for Garcia’s men to get going.
PSG were the boss of the opening hour and Lyon only got going when the result was out of sight for them and their visitors took their foot off the gas. The decision to start Mattia De Sciglio against Leo Dubois was a costly one as the Italian was involved in both goals in the first half and will come under heavy criticism.
After the Costa Rica international one in the Coupe de France mid-week After saving penalties against Lille, he made it big again with a number of important saves. Navas, 34, made a stop just before Mbappe scored his second goal at the other end and another 4-2 to stop what would almost certainly have been a third orienteering goal.
The Former Real Madrid player has underlined his worth again in recent weeks and will be part of the reason PSG feel they can kick defending champions Bayern Munich out of the UEFA Champions League.
Another important figure in PSG Defense was Abdou Diallo, although it was not as important as Navas. He’s been strengthening the defensive line since Pochettino came on at halftime in the 1-1 draw with Barcelona in the Champions League.
The Frenchman showed at Old Trafford earlier in the season he was a shaky left side Can tighten the defense, and that’s exactly what he did, with Alessandro Florenzi arguably now being the weakest member of the rear guard.
If the 24-year-old can continue to build on these recent performances, PSG may be able to hit one on the right Work the solution before it meets Bayern’s attacking power.

The Brazilian superstar is finally back on the field after weeks of injuries and PSG can now begin to find the best way to get him before the clash To condition Bavaria in April.
A 20-minute slip was ideal to lure him back into the business. The only problem was that he replaced Mbappe, who may have been hit.
PSG’s win makes the hunt for the championship crown closer than ever. Since the beginning of 2021, four points have been seen between the top four and Monaco. Losing LOSC points came as a surprise and Lyon needed a replay of their exploits in Paris if they should take control of the situation. Instead, it is PSG that is profiting and running marginally over Lille while OL is now over her shoulders watch ASM gain ground.
