Lyon defeating Marseille, Paris winner of Stade Rennais, Guingamp still without a win … The result of the 6th day of Ligue 1 football.
Marseille have not won since 2007 in Lyon , and it will not be for Sunday: the men of Rudi Garcia were crushed 4-2 in Lyonnais metamorphosed since their success in Manchester City, while the PSG has returned to the victory in Rennes (3-1) .
Dream Lyon, Marseille nightmare
A European feat against Manchester City in the lead (2-1) , a brilliant success (4-2) against Marseille rival in flat resistance: Lyon has managed an ideal week to forget his mixed debut in the league.
Thanks to his four goals (Houssem Aouar, 28th, Bertrand Traoré, 51st, 61st, Nabil Fekir, 75th sp), Bruno Genesio’s team is repositioned in 6th position, just behind his victim of the evening which marked by Florian Thauvin ( 40th) and Clinton Njié (82nd).

For the Marseillais, it is a contrario a nightmare week, between unworthy defeat at home against Eintracht Frankfurt, and new defeat in a direct competitor for the qualifying places for the Champions League. In addition, their Croatian defender Duje Caleta-Car was dismissed (83) while Adil Rami was injured, and Njié was injured late in the game.
OM are regularly accused of being weak with the big, and had taken only two points last season out of 18 possible against PSG, Monaco and Lyon. He thought he had put an end to teasing by winning on the wire in Monaco (3-2), but this defeat at the club with which the rivalry is currently the strongest will undoubtedly leave traces.
Paris always 100% (in France)
Six out of six: if Paris was swept by Liverpool on Tuesday in the Champions League (3-2) , he has not lost the thread of his success in the league so far and still has not let slip any point in six days.
In Rennes on Sunday, he conceded the opening goal, a goal against his camp Adrien Rabiot (12th), but the Angel Di Maria (45th), Thomas Meunier (61st) and the summer rookie Eric Maxim Choupo- Moting (83), author of his first goal in the Parisian jersey, allowed PSG to win (3-1).
“It’s always possible to take a goal on a set kick … But then we had a lot of possession, a lot of intensity,” said coach Thomas Tuchel.
“I’m glad the team showed this fire and hunger to win today.”
Entered the game for the last half hour, the former Parisian Hatem Ben Arfa, now Rennais, did not weigh on the debates. He had been sidelined by the club since April 2017, and joined Rennes at the end of the transfer window this summer.
Guingamp, it’s serious
Without fail for Paris, without point for Guingamp : the contrast is cruel for the Bretons, defeated for the 6th time of the season in championship Sunday by Bordeaux (2-1) in Roudourou.
The Guingampais fought, however, returning to 1-1 with a penalty Marcus Thuram (70th) after opening the superb score of Francois Kamano (54th). But Yann Karamoh (81st) then Nicolas De Préville (90 + 5) allowed Bordeaux to win to seize 14th place in the L1.
And Guingampan fans called the departure of former PSG coach Antoine Kombouaré in extra time: “Antoine, football and golf, when it’s not going to change clubs,” briefly posted the Red Kop Guingamp .
“People are free to say what they want,” responded Antoine Kombouaré at the microphone of Canal Plus. “They are right to be very critical, they are right to be angry.”
“Whatever happens, we will always be behind the coach,” said middle Marcus Coco on BeIN Sports. The next day is scheduled for Tuesday and Wednesday.
