Three days after their defeat in Marseille in the Coupe de France, Paris Saint-Germain lost again in the league to Monaco.
It is with very little certainty that the Paris Saint Germain will receive the Bayern Munich Tuesday in the round of 16 first leg of the Champions League. Already beaten and eliminated in the Coupe de France on Wednesday byOlympic Marseille (2-1), the players of the capital received theAS Monaco4th in Ligue 1 and undefeated for seven matches in the league.
A catastrophic start
And it only took 4 minutes to see the difficulties of PSG confirmed. Too wait-and-see, the defense is quickly surprised on its left side, Aleksandr Golovin is there to conclude (1-0, 4th), the Russian’s 5th goal of the season in Ligue 1. An early opener which does not wake up Christophe Galtier’s men since in the 18th minute, Wissam Ben Yedder double the bet by taking advantage of a gross error ofEl Chadaille Bitshiabu (2-0, 18th).

The only clearing in the gray sky of the Parisians will come from Warren Zaire-Emery, who takes over a center from Juan Bernat to conclude a nice movement and reduce the mark. The hope will be short-lived since in the process, Ben Yedder takes advantage of the misalignment of Timothée Pembélé to go and score a double, his 140th goal in Ligue 1.

Paris worried before Bayern
On returning from the locker room, Christophe Galtier tried several times to change the system and bring in new blood, but very uninspired, the championship leader struggled to create real chances and worry Monegasques in a good place. Paris therefore lost 3-1 and saw its evening host come back to 7 points, what to worry about three days before the reception of Bayern. For their part, the Monegasques are putting pressure on Marseille and Lens by temporarily taking second place in the championship.
