PSG Held to Draw by Reims, Maintain 10-Point Lead

Paris Saint-Germain’s stuttering form continued on Sunday as they were held to a 2-2 draw by Reims in Ligue 1, despite going 10 points clear at the top of the table.

Without Kylian Mbappe in the starting lineup, PSG fell behind to a Marshall Munetsi goal after an error by Achraf Hakimi. However, they rallied back with an own goal from Yunis Abdelhamid and a strike from Goncalo Ramos. Reims equalized on the stroke of half-time through Oumar Diakite.

PSG coach Luis Enrique defended his team’s performance, saying, “I didn’t think the team was too relaxed at any point. I thought their mentality was just right.” He added, “We pressed well, we were aggressive. Today we had the chance to go 12 points clear and that is our objective, to win the league as soon as possible and compete in every competition.”

Despite the draw, PSG remain in a commanding position in the title race, with a 10-point lead over second-placed Brest. However, their recent form has raised concerns, with the reigning champions now winless in three consecutive domestic matches.

Mbappe’s absence from the starting lineup was notable, as he has been linked with a move away from the club at the end of the season. Enrique refused to comment on Mbappe’s future, saying, “When the different parties comment on it, then I will comment. As long as nobody says anything I will do my job which is to take decisions.”

In other Ligue 1 action, Monaco moved to within a point of Brest with a 1-0 win at Strasbourg, while Lille reclaimed a place in the top four with a 2-2 draw against Rennes. Marseille continued their resurgence under new coach Jean-Louis Gasset with a 2-0 victory over Nantes.
