Lyon – Paris SG 1-1
Goal for Lyon: Paqueta (8th)
Goal for Paris SG: Kehrer (76th)
OL and PSG went after each other for a draw that deserved 1-1.
Back to the wall as never before receiving the leader of Ligue 1, Olympique Lyonnais could only count on the meager support of the authorized public, namely 5,000 spectators who had braved the rain and the cold. It paid off quickly with the opening score of Paqueta (1-0, 7th) which would remind us that the Brazilian was still the number 1 danger for PSG. For the rest of this first period, it was PSG that outrageously dominated, with a Lopes once again vigilant against Marquinhos, then all happy to see PSG repel Mbappé’s coiled strike.
At the break, OL held the essentials, but as everyone now knows in Ligue 1, it is the Parisian finish that is scary. Especially since Lyon missed the ball 2-0 with Dembélé then Aouar, who saw their attempt being pushed back on a counter. Apart from this alert, the PSG dominated copiously and the alerts multiplied. Until a ball which arrived at the far post, and Kehrer’s crushed strike deceived Lopes (1-1, 76th). The match remained muscular and undecided until the end, with no additional goal on the clock. In the end, PSG thus avoids conceding a second defeat in Ligue 1, and if OL are reassured about the content and the commitment put in, that ultimately only makes one point.
