- April 03, 2023 02:21FULL TIME : PSG 0-1 Lyon
That’s the full time whistle. Bradley Barcola’s second half goal was suffiecient to get the better of Cristophe Galtier’s PSG. This is the second straight home loss for the side.
Safe to say this was a toothless performance by PSG. Mbappe sparked in bits but other than that nothing positive to take home. Messi was absent for the most part. No influence on the game. No other player stepped to take responsibility either.
As a result, PSG’s lead at the topn of the table is cut short to six points. The side has not scored a goal in 180 minutes of play. Worrying signs. The next challenge for PSG will be away to Nice next Sunday.
For Lyon, a French Cup semifinal awaits. It will take on Nantes and what better way to head into the crunch encounter than pulling off an away win against the Ligue 1 champion.

- April 03, 2023 02:0781’
Hakimi misses! Lyon commits a howler and gifts the possession to Hakimi in its own penalty area. What saves it is the fact that the shot is on Hakimi’s left. He goes through with the shot but lacks any control and the ball flies past the goal.

Ekitike takes a long range attempt at goal but Lopes does not really have too much problem in saving that.

- April 03, 2023 01:16HALF TIME : PSG 0-0 OL
Cristophe Galtier lets his displeasure at the penalty decision known to the referee. That’s how the half concludes.
Lyon had the best chance to pull ahead but Lacazette, on his 150th appearance for the club, missed a penalty. Paris has been able to create chances but has lacked the composure in front of goal. Vitinha, Mbappe and Mendes had the best chances but failed to convert.
A penalty call by PSG was denied towards the close of the half.
The sides cannot be seperated at the half-way point and the second half is likely to be just as exciting as the first.
- April 03, 2023 01:1345+2’
Nuno Mendes is screaming for a penalty! The ball clearly struck Lovren’s hand. And right in front of goal.
The referee disagrees. Even the VAR decides against a penalty.

Three minutes of stoppage time.

A costly miss for Lyon. Will it come back to bite?
- April 03, 2023 01:0136’
PENALTY! LYON HAS A PENALTY!
Marcola’s shot is saved by Donnarumma as the Lyon striker slipped. The PSG keeper, however, fails to collect it cleanly. As Lacazette approaches to collect the loose ball, he is tripped by Donnarumma’s shoulder.

- April 03, 2023 00:272’
