The 5th match in 13 days was fatal for Paris FC.
The Parisians finish this terrible sequence with a record of 3 points out of 15. A very bad series which saw the candidate for the rise in L1 to fall into the rank (6th) and lose a lot of ground on the head of the classification.
The workforce of the PFC, decimated by absences and which has again lost its captain Cyril Mandouki who will be operated next week for hamstrings for certainly six long months, is not sufficiently provided to be able to maintain the same pace over time .
Thierry Laurey has also already warned: "If we do not manage to take new players (Editor's note: a midfielder and a striker), we will no longer be able to have the same ambitions".
Lead by a catastrophic start
As in the victory (2-0) against Nîmes on Tuesday, the coach of Paris FC had chosen to renew his defense with three axial. But Paris FC was weighed down by a catastrophic start, sanctioned by two goals from set pieces, a header from Passi (4th) and a direct free kick from Louiserre (17th). Dominators, multiplying offensive sequences, the Parisians then fell on a Braat in a state of grace. The Niort goalkeeper multiplied the decisive parries (7 stops in total). This lack of efficiency in front of goals is starting to become a recurring problem for the PFC.
Faced with the repeated failures of his players, we saw Laurey very, very annoyed and upset.
And it was not the two new goals from Niort (72nd, 76th) which turned this 4th defeat into 5 games into a shipwreck, which calmed him down… Slapped, the Parisians had less merit of never giving up the image Laura who offers Arnaud Tattevin, still an amateur, the first goal of his career in L2 (4-1, 87th).
The last time that Paris FC lost on an almost as heavy score away, it was three years ago, on August 24, 2018 (4-0 in Orléans).
