The Parisians are 7 points ahead of their first pursuer, OM, while having played one game less.

Sunday, they logically made a mouthful of fans of Linas-Monthery in the Coupe de France (0-6).

Indeed, the Greens have lost 4 of their last 5 games in all competitions in December. Beaten by Reims (3-1), Wolfsburg (1-0) in the Europa League and PSG (0-4), the Stéphanois just took over Nîmes in the 1/8 finals of the League Cup before bow again against Stasbourg (2-1) on the 19th day of Ligue 1.
