OL-PSG (1-1): Lyon and Paris back to back

Lyon and PSG neutralized each other (1-1) on Sunday evening on the 20th day of Ligue 1. OL opened the scoring with Paqueta before Kehrer equalized.

Paris is treading water. Deprived of several players (injured Neymar, Di Maria positive for Covid-19, Messi at the end of Covid), the capital club thus continues a fourth draw in five league games.

Enterprising but clumsy, Paris had to wait until the last quarter of an hour to find the opening and return with a point of its trip in the Rhône. The entry into play of the two young Edouard Michut and Xavi Simmons has done the greatest good to the Parisians. What to see them more often?

“We take a point tonight. We wanted to win and I think we can do better, said Thilo Kherer after the meeting. We must do better for our next goals. We have to analyze what we did this evening. Of course, we have to agree to take a point this evening. Lyon are a good team, especially against us. It’s always difficult, with a lot of duels and intensity. But we have a good mentality, we never give up. We are strong in this. We must not be only negative, even if we do not take the three points tonight. “

For the Lyonnais, it is a fourth consecutive draw in Ligue 1 and a new disillusionment in this very complicated season. The Gones are far from their objectives …

In the standings, PSG keeps 11 points ahead of its runner-up, Nice, while Lyon stagnates in 11th place.
