PSG were dealt another blow after losing to Lyon at home

Paris Saint-Germain lost at home for the second time in a row on Sunday, losing 1-0 to Lyon, cutting their advantage atop Ligue 1 to six points.
Bradley Barcola of Lyon handed PSG their most recent defeat at the Parc des Princes, two weeks after they lost 2-0 to Rennes at home.

Barcola’s goal made up for Alexandre Lacazette’s missed penalty in the first half after he had replaced the injured Amin Sarr.
The Parisians have now lost five times in Ligue 1 this year, all of them in 2023, and Christophe Galtier’s team now only has a six-point lead over Lens in second place and Marseille at third.

Now in ninth place is Lyon, led by former PSG manager Laurent Blanc.

Danilo, a midfielder for PSG, stated that the team had entered “a difficult phase” that they needed to escape because their competitors were closing in.

“We need to get up. There are still a lot of matches, so the title isn’t at all certain,” he stated on Amazon Video.

There are many things that need to change, in addition to mindset, but I can’t decide what.
With Neymar recovering from an ankle surgery and their defense being completely destroyed, PSG has been seriously hindered by injuries.

In contrast to his past victories over Strasbourg and Brest, Kylian Mbappe was unable to score any last-second goals.

Before the kickoff against Lyon, Lionel Messi’s name had drawn whistles from supporters in the stadium during team line-up announcements.

Messi, who helped Argentina win the World Cup in Qatar last year, is nearing the end of his two-year deal with the Paris club that now leads Ligue 1, and negotiations have started on a potential extension.

Monaco defeated mediocre Strasbourg 4-3 at home to keep up their fight for a Champions League spot.

Despite grabbing the lead through Vanderson in the 18th minute, Monaco trailed 2-1 at the break.

Strasbourg won thanks to goals from Lebo Mothiba and Chilean defender Guillermo Maripan.

The following 11 minutes of the second half saw goals from 18-year-olds Youssouf Fofana, Eliesse Ben Seghir, and Edan Diop give Monaco a 4-2 advantage.

The stoppage-time strike by Habib Diallo was merely Strasbourg’s solace.

Monaco is only three points behind third-placed Marseille, who was beaten to a 1-1 draw by Montpellier on Friday, with 57 points.

We witnessed two faces of Monaco tonight, Philippe Clement, the coach of Monaco, stated.

“We got off to a good start, and we held up for 25 minutes. Yet after that, Strasbourg rallied back and scored twice as the aggression subsided. I was furious at the half. My team was not recognized by me.
