His name is Serhou Guirassy and Lille can undoubtedly prepare for his status at the Pierre-Mauroy stadium if they become champions of France next week. Scorer with Rennes on May 9, he allowed the Bretons to equalize (1-1) against Paris, a draw which deprives PSG this morning of a leading place in Ligue 1. With only one point taken against Saint-Etienne, Lille still dominates the championship a step from the terminus but it has only one point ahead. A Paris victory at Roazhon Park would have changed everything. But it would be too simple to summarize the season on this 36th day. Everything changed everywhere, from the first stage and the following ones. But let's say that the victorious head of Guirassy is the last episode which shows that everything was still possible at the end.
Was or is? Here is the story: there is one day left, three points at stake and Christophe Galtier's men leave for Angers when Mauricio Pochettino's men return to Brittany, to Brest this time. In Finistère, the maintenance is not completely assured with the threat of the place of barrage devolved to the 18th. In Maine-et-Loire, it will be the last of Stéphane Moulin at the head of the first team. This is the only issue for Angevins who have broken down between the first leg and the return phase. Eighth with 30 points like Lens at the break, they have only collected fourteen since. They upset OM on Sunday (2-3) but are generally not brilliant in 2021. While the Mastiffs seem stronger away than at home,they really don't seem able to thwart the plans of Yilmaz et al.
Paris heals its last game at the Park this season
A draw for Lille and a victory for Paris would reverse the top two places.
It's a hope and football so you have to pretend the miracle could still happen.
Everything would have been so much easier if PSG had not chosen to depend on others.
But there was this draw in Rennes and before Nantes, Monaco, Lens or Marseille, all these improbable defeats which he is paying the price today.
Even if the time for reckoning has not yet fully come.
Along with these northern considerations and algebra, Paris had a homework assignment for its last home outing.
Everything went well with the Neymar-Mbappé scoring duo.
Placed at the forefront of Pochettino's 4-4-2, the Brazilian cracked a penalty caused by the world champion before the latter recovered a stray ball from Champagne to score his 40th goal of his Parisian season.
Meanwhile, Yunis Abdelhamid had taken the door, ruled out for the hand on the penalty because Mbappé's ball went into the goal.
It seems that this is the rule and Clément Turpin is not an arbiter to derogate from it, he who often officiates closer to the letter than to the spirit.

After the break, Marquinhos, the only player in this star squad who can threaten them in the scorers standings, will stand out with his traditional header before the first goal in a month and a half from Moise Kean. Boss, it will be the same next week in Brest. The terraces reopen, the dream continues.
