From his place in the stands, René Girard, suspended, appreciated the great performance of his team.
Winner at Sochaux in the clash of the two in-form teams of the moment (7 games without defeat for the Doubistes, 6 for the Parisians), Paris FC still managed a superb operation and can still dream of Ligue 2. It pushes back Sochaux, direct competitor for the playoffs at 8 points and approaches Clermont (3rd), at two points.
The arrival of the leader Troyes on Saturday in Charléty promises ...
What you must remember
Another big blow.
From the outset, Paris FC, playing very high, stifled the Sochaliens.
On a recovery, Florent Hanin's cross is headed by Gaëtan Laura (0-1, 6th).
The PFC striker scores his 7th goal of the season.
The Parisians managed a big first period with several break points like these strikes from Florian Martin (38th) and Marvin Gakpa (40th) just off.
Vincent Demarconnay, who will celebrate his 38th birthday on Monday, had himself highlighted on a beautiful flight on the strike from Weissbeck (26th).
An almost perfect copy just darkened by the exit on injury of the dynamiter Laura (33rd), affected in the adductors on an acceleration.
The duration of his unavailability could be a determining factor for the final sprint.
The Parisians start the second period in the same way with Warren Caddy who forces Prévot to two big stops (52nd, 55th).
At ten after the expulsion of Ousmane Kanté (58th), the PFC suffers a little, but takes shelter on a counter concluded by the inevitable Ali Abdi (0-2, 70th).
Very good during his first two selections for the Tunisian national team last week against Libya and Equatorial Guinea (two assists), the defender scored his 8th goal of the season.
If Bedia puts an end to the defensive invincibility series (575 minutes) of the PFC at the end of the match (1-2, 90th + 3), the Parisians continue their return to the peaks of the championship.
Fact of the match: Kanté's expulsion
Already warned, Ousmane Kanté stops Bedia (58th) at the entrance to the surface.
The Guinean international is expelled.
On Weissbeck's free kick, Moustapaha Name, in the wall, deflects the ball with his hand.
But the referee does not whistle the penalty claimed by the Sochaliens.
At ten, with a tactical reorganization - playmaker Marvin Gakpa is replaced by central defender Youssoupha Ndiaye - Paris FC managed to resist.
This is the second time in two games after the expulsion of Check Oumar Diakité against Grenoble (2-0) 15 days ago, which he won by finishing outnumbered.
The player: Axel Bamba
The 21-year-old central defender, trained at the club, managed a clear round by always being sharp in his interventions.
His return to Bedia (69th) while Sochaux was pushing and his team was reduced to ten, was decisive.
The number: 7
Paris FC signed a 7th game without defeat.
He won a 5th victory in his last six games.
It is the best series in Ligue 2 over this period.
