Why Paris SG stays in hot form
Paris SG is yet to take a beating from any team in the Ligue 1 for the 2021-22 season. The club has sat at the top of the league table since day one and they have shown no signs of slowing down.
Paris SG is off to a great start in the season and the club has been at its best in the past six weeks and they have not lost or drawn a single game. That shows how Paris SG has been confident in their games and they are yet to show their full potential as well.
Over the past few weeks, Paris SG showed the rest of Ligue 1 that they are capable of beating teams even if their best stars are not in their form. The runners-up of the 2020-21 season are here to win, and they want to redeem their loss to Lille in the past season.
While there are still a lot of games to play and it is still early to say what their chances are, Paris SG is a strong club for any other team. They have done well in terms of beating down the best of teams in the league, and their stacked roster shows a lot of promise as well.
Paris SG is more confident after their win against Lyon
Paris SG bested Lyon with a 2-1 win. For some fans, this may be a little bit of a poor game for the club since it was close, but what was on display here is the grit by the team to pull off a win. They did not have an early lead in the game but they still salvaged the game.
They were down by 0-1 in the second half before Neymar scored a penalty goal in the 66th minute to tie the game. They were hot during that time as they kept on attacking for the rest of the second half as well.
It took some time for Paris SG to sink a winner through Mauro Icardi in stoppage time as he slotted a shot in the 93rd minute to steal a 2-1 win. The club walked away with all three points and ended it with a bang.
Paris SG did not even win in the stat sheet, but they still came out on top. The club had 12 shots and only five of those were so close to the net.
There is a lot at stake for Paris SG
A league title is due for Paris SG by the end of the season as long as they keep this kind of pace. Coach Mauricio Pochettino is keen to win the title after losing in the past run and that task extends all the way to the Champions League as well.
They also need to beat Lille to the league title as they hope to settle a score in the Ligue 1 title as well. This puts pressure on them to win games, but they are doing better so far than most people think.
Paris SG also needs to keep winning to avoid a lot of backlash from their fans. They boast one of the best squads in the world with the likes of Neymar, Kylian Mbappe, and Lionel Messi at the helm, so that means reputation is on the line.
