Paris Saint-Germain have been imperious from the beginning of the season, having recorded eight impressive wins in eight Ligue 1 appearances so far, the Ligue 1 table-toppers are looking poise for the title this season.
Their match against LA Surdouee ended in their favor as they carted the whole three points. The early goal came from Idrissa Gueye 14 minutes into the game as Mauricio Pochettino’s side made an early stride into the encounter.
German international Julian Draxler – who has been a subject of transfer move from the club in the summer and recently in the transfer windows – doubled the lead with two minutes
to the stoppage time.
Their 2-0 wins against 12th place Montpellier this weekend made it 8 wins in eight league games. The Pochettino-led side sit comfortably on top of the Ligue 1 table and they are now 10 points clear of their nearest challenger, south coast side Olympique Marseille.
With their absolute dominance, it won’t be out of place to make a presumption that the star-studded PSG are sprinting to the Ligue 1 title this season once again.
It comes as no big surprise though, considering that they lost last season’s title to a determined Les Dogues side. PSG lost the league 1 title to Lille with a point separating the winner and the runner up.
PSG’s dominance isn’t surprising though because the Parisian club have been in the ascendancy in the domestic league since 2011, their uprising is aided by the money bags Qatar Sports investments(QSI) group who acquired the Club.
From that time till now, they have won seven out of a possible 10 Ligue 1 titles. Prior to the takeover, PSG only had just two domestic titles. The two they won were in 1985/86 and 1993/94 campaigns respectively.
PSG would embark on their quest for UEFA champions league group A on Tuesday 28th September as they host English champions Manchester City at Parc Des Princes. Their first outing in Bruges against Club Brugge ended in one goal apiece.
