It is a (pleasant) surprise that at this point in the season, the Paris Saint Germain is not in the first position of Ligue1. On Saturday, those led by Mauricio Pochettino lost 1-0 at home to Lille and were thus relegated to second place in the French league, after 31 games played. Lille himself is placed in the first position with 66 points – three more than those achieved by the Parisian team – with only 7 dates left to conclude this season. As if that were not enough, the team from the capital of France suffered the expulsion of Neymar Jr for an attack on the Portuguese footballer Tiago Djaló.
In the last minutes of the game and a victim of despair for not having been able to find the result, Neymar was direct with excessive force against Djaló, who tried to move the ball away from the Brazilian to eat seconds on the timer. In the end, the referee did not want to be involved in controversy and preferred to admonish both players, than by already having a yellow card, they had to retire expelled from the field of play. Today, the Disciplinary Commission of the French Professional Football League (LFP) has confirmed two games of sanction for the Brazilian forward, in addition to a third suspension, which will only be applied if he receives another sanction.
PSG has seven dates to change the inertia of this season, which, due to the quality of the squad and especially compared to the rivals, has been very disappointing. In case of not being able to win Ligue1, those led by Pochettino would put all the meat on the grill for the UEFA Champions League, where they managed to get a good income from the Allianz Arena, by defeating Bayern Munich at home 2-3.
