Paris breathes thanks to its stars, Monaco connects, Dijon begins

Dijon finally wins, Monaco wins again and Toulouse gets away late in the game. The tour of the stadiums.

Time to Reading 3 min.

After the victory of Nantes plunging Lyon into crisis, the rest of the day of Ligue 1, Saturday, September 28, saw the Paris Saint-Germain win in Bordeaux, and Dijon clinched its first victory.

Him again. After missing twice the frame of the head, Neymar delivered his own flat foot unstoppable, and scored the only goal of this match won by Paris against Bordeaux (1-0), served well by Mbappé. Without being dazzling, PSG was able to count on its pair of stars, who had not been aligned together for five months. The Brazilian carries his meter to three goals in four games, all decisive.

Without offensive inspiration (one shot shot), Bordeaux was unable to meet the champions of France, like Yacine Adli, yet bright this week against Amiens. Without being dazzling, PSG has imposed itself by the smallest margins. A short win that allows him to regain first place in Ligue 1, three days after falling home against Reims (0-2). Enough to reassure yourself before facing Galatasaray on Tuesday night?

By winning against Brest, Monaco finally breathes and moves away from the relegation zone. This victory (4-1), the ASM owes mainly to his attack duo, Ben Yedder-Slimani, which runs at full speed since their first match. Recruited this summer, both players scored and posted a perfect deal, with Slimani winning the lead to serve his teammate (26e). Only downside: intervening in front of Ben Yedder who wanted to shoot the penalty he had just obtained, the former center forward of Fenerbahçe has tarnished this unit somewhat. Without consequence, since Martins (73e) and Baldé (90e) have driven the nail and allowed a broad victory Monaco, which goes up the club Rocher to the twelfth place provisional.

  • Nice and Lille split on a parity score

The most beautiful poster of this Saturday night did not separate Nice and Lille (1-1). Dolberg first opened the scoring at 13e minute of play, winning his face-to-face with Maignan, a shot full of mastery. Ten minutes later, a superb strike wrapped outside Araujo's penalty area put the two teams tied. Osimhem may well insist, striker Lillois very legged since the start of the season misses the match, and these contenders for a qualification in European Cup finally leave back to back.

After having started the week by winning St. Etienne Wednesday (1-0), Metz concedes a draw at home against the TFC (2-2). Missing sharp, the Toulouse ran after the mark almost the whole meeting.

The match was packed late in the game. Led for 80 minutes, Toulouse found the flaw on a header Said – the fourth goal conceded in eight heads for the promoted in Lorraine. Then a penalty awarded in the confusion allowed the Messins to lead again, before Koulouris, entered the 79e minute of play, take advantage of seven minutes of additional time to equalize. Long before, the game leaves a bitter taste for FC Metz, who lost his goalkeeper Oukidja and top scorer Diallo, both out of injury.

  • Dijon holds his first victory

By winning in Reims (2-1), Dijon won his first game of the season. After a complicated 2018-2019 season (5 goals in 36 league games), Dijares striker Tavares has confirmed his return. By signing his third goal of the season, the captain of the DFCO allows his family to breathe a little. Reims, who loses after quickly leading 1 to 0 on an attack on a lob Chavalerin (17e), can feed some regrets. Despite this victory, Dijon remains in the red zone (19e), while Reims, 11e, loses an opportunity to aim higher after his victory in Paris.

  • Angers dominates but does not win

Third best attack in the five major European championships, behind Liverpool (17) and Manchester City (24), Angers has tried a lot, but not enough to win (1-1). In Amiens, Capelle and his comrades let slip the three points and allow PSG to remain alone in the lead of the championship. The gatekeeper Picard, Gurtner, long impassable tonight, saved his team several times before losing to a powerful strike Aloui, helped by the bar.
