Foot PSG – PSG: Vincent Duluc blows a wind of panic

PSG’s defeat against Rennes on Sunday night, the second in a row away from home, is blowing a wind of concern in the capital.

Beaten by Lens two weeks ago, Paris Saint-Germain fell again in Ligue 1, this time on the turf of Rennes. PSG, who never dominated against Bruno Genesio’s side, lost logically, according to their own coach Christophe Galtier. The start of 2023 is tough for the capital club, which has belatedly regained some of its globalists (Hakimi, Messi, Mbappé, Neymar) and which is clearly struggling to get back into the league. However, this apathy must not last too long, at the risk of jeopardizing his first place. Because while PSG yo-yos in Ligue 1, the others are advancing quickly: Rennes and Monaco, but above all Marseille (- 5 points) and Lens (- 3 points). In an editorial published in L’Equipe newspaper, Vincent Duluc warned PSG against increased competition in Ligue 1.

PSG are in danger of the title, Vincent Duluc is worried

“Some seasons PSG’s defeat worries almost only him, given his margin. This cannot be the case when the Parisians feel the breath of Lens and OM by three and five lengths respectively (…) It is a race with opponents who have a different collective momentum, showing a different way of running and suffering together. It is not a defeat that makes you worry or not before the round of 16 of the PSG Champions League against Bayern Munich: the Champions League cannot be the only possible reading of the Parisian season, where the French championship is also uncertain, so it is rather a setback that makes one wonder if for the fourth time in the Qatar era PSG can be overthrown by competition as it had been by Montpellier in 2012, by Monaco in 2017. , and by Lille in 2021. » analyzes the journalist from L’Equipe, for whom it is clearly not impossible to see another French champion than PSG next May. OM and Lens have something to play for, this Paris can be taken… for now.
