Despite his desires, the Parisian club did not recruit any player, not even the Moroccan Hakim Ziyech, whom he nevertheless coveted. With only one point per game on average since the start of the year, his match against Montpellier this Wednesday evening is not a foregone conclusion.

A transfer window that turns into a fiasco. Despite his desires, the Parisian club has not recruited any player, not even the Moroccan Hakim Ziyech. The striker was however in Paris and his medical examination validated. Except that, past midnight, the correct documents were not sent. Non-negotiable for the French Football League which has closed transfers for all clubs. Paris Saint-Germain has filed an appeal for all the same validated the arrival of the Chelsea player. An arrival that would be welcome, since the club needs new blood. In Ligue 1, he shows shortcomings against clubs yet within his reach.

A club that shows shortcomings

The PSG remains on an average of only one point per game since the beginning of the year, that is to say four meager points garnered. The Parisians were surprised last Sunday against Rennes, showing shortcomings and a crying lack of involvement. Outside, it’s worse with two setbacks in Ligue 1, Rennes and Lens. Coach Christophe Galtier is not satisfied and has let his players know.

“Obviously it was insufficient. Insufficient in terms of points but also insufficient in terms of play. We must quickly find a much higher level of play than what we propose and above all score points. must be better than January,” he said.

This time, Paris will move without Neymar, who feels muscle discomfort, and Verratti, suspended. The championship leader will still be the favourite. Montpellier have lost nine of their last ten Ligue 1 matches against Paris conceding 37 goals. Less than a week from the shock in the Coupe de France in Marseille, PSG must react.
