PSG lost in the French Cup earlier this month at bitter rival Marseille, where Mbappé was injured, so what better place to do it than there? Neymar was out this time for PSG, but the Brazil star didn’t matter.

A victory would have put second-place Marseille just two points behind PSG, the defending champion. Instead, with only 13 rounds remaining, Marseille is eight points behind.

Christophe Galtier, the head coach of PSG, stated, “Everyone put in the right effort.”

Because Galtier is from Marseille and played as a tough defender for the club. Some Marseille fans simply do not comprehend why he is coaching PSG.

PSG’s 18th-inning injury to central defender Presnel Kimpembe was their only negative on an impressive night.

Despite the fact that the nature of his injury was not immediately apparent. He was carried off on a stretcher after falling to the ground unassisted and lying on his face for some time.

With the loss, Marseille is now just two points behind Monaco, which is third. Lens, which is fourth, both of whom have 50 points.

If Monaco had not lost 3-0 to Nice at home earlier. On Sunday in the Riviera derby, it could have been worse for Marseille.

Nice moved up to seventh place thanks to goals from Nigerian striker Terem Moffi in the first 25 minutes and midfielder Khéphren Thuram. The son of France legend Lilian Thuram, just before halftime.
