Don’t think about it anymore. And move on. Three days after the disillusionment of Veszprém, the Parisians return to the French championship this Sunday (5 p.m.) with the reception of Toulouse. The opportunity for Raul Gonzalez and his players to continue their winning streak of the 1st day.
Refocus as quickly as possible
Sports bags barely put on Friday, Nikola Karabatic and his teammates quickly turned to the difficult championship game that awaits them. For the second time, they will have the privilege of playing in front of their audience, which has regained its marks at Coubertin. A little over a week ago, Istres had upset Paris during the first 45 minutes before being subjected to the law of the champion of France. Logic would like that, in view of last season (22 victories before falling), the Parisians win another success.

It is one of the outsiders not to be overlooked. Behind the inevitable cadors (PSG, Montpellier, Nantes, and Aix, Chambéry and Saint-Raphaël just below), Toulouse has everything the troublemaker who comes to make a mess where we do not expect it. Last year, the Haute-Garonne players had taken 41 in the hall of the capital, while deceiving the vigilance of Vincent Gérard and Yann Genty on 35 occasions. Toulouse strength, it is in front that it is necessary to go to seek it, with the Serbian Nemanja Ilic (8 goals in opening despite the defeat against Chambéry). In goals, Jef Lettens, supported this year by Robin Cantegrel, is one of the best goalkeepers in the championship (16 saves against the Savoyard club). Paris is warned.
Already a busy schedule
It has become a habit: by dint of playing on all fronts, we expose ourselves to hellish rates. As exactly a year ago, PSG will not have time to be unemployed in the coming weeks. Twelve meetings are on the program by the end of October, between the Liqui Moly Starligue and the Champions League (the League Cup is coming after), or almost one match every three days. Physically, the trip to Hungary was intense but the group, which I deplore no injuries, was prepared for this pace unlike any other. It will therefore be necessary to judge on documents in mid-October, and hope for the PSG that the infirmary remains empty …
