PSG has therefore entered the history of the French Championship.
By beating Istres (39-26) at Coubertin on Tuesday afternoon, the capital club won its twentieth victory in as many games, the best start in the modern history of the competition.
The Parisians are doing better than Montpellier, which had racked up 19 straight wins before suffering its first defeat in the 2011-2012 season.

“We have high objectives, notes at the microphone of the NHL Mathieu Grébille, the Parisian left winger, with a lot of restraint.
I hope we have the best season possible and that we end with a clear round.

Last year, despite a season that had not come to an end, he remained undefeated (17 V, 1 N).

Handball: PSG not favorite, Barça in scarecrow ... Who will win the Champions League?
All those who on the occasion will say it: a match against PSG is always pleasant to play, especially if the public is present.
Coubertin sounded hollow again, but that did not prevent Istres, modest 13th, from playing his luck.
The Azuréens hung on for a good twenty minutes (14-13, 24th), before letting go in front of the Parisian steamroller, more effective than ever in attack since the end of September (696 goals scored, an average of 34.8 ), and intractable in defense (509 goals conceded by the tandem Gérard / Genty, 25.4).
In the club's scorers' classification, Nedim Remili (7 goals against Istres, 89 in total) takes a few steps ahead of Mikkel Hansen, well recovered from the Covid-19 (5 goals; 86 in total).
