No Messi No Worry - PSG Still Grab Three League Points

Yesterday at the Parc Des Princes stadium, Paris Saint Germain welcomed Montpellier. There was no Messi due to him recovering from a knee injury. The upfront trio of Kylian Mbappe, Neymar and Angel Di Maria weren't as effective as they usually are. Normally, one could count on their stars to lead by example and make an impact. Paris Saint Germain did win the match by a scoreline of 2-0. It was Idrissa Gueye and Julian Draxler that secured all three points for their team. We need to look at the depth in this team that speaks volumes. Even without one of the greatest of all time, Paris Saint Germain is still winning. Their win cemented their place on top of the French League. The difference between first and second place on the league table is ten points. Mauricio Pochettino should take heed of this since even on off days for his superstars, there are individuals in this club that are getting better as the days go on.

Thus far, Paris Saint Germain has no losses nor draws to their name in the league and I'm sure they want to keep it like that. It's eight wins from eight games which is a very positive start to their league campaign. I wonder if their results are a good thing or are there darker days on the horizon? Paris Saint Germain's true metal will be put through the test against Man City in the champions league on Tuesday, the 28th of September. Yesterday Man City moved to second place in the English Premier League within a point of league leaders Liverpool. Man City defeated Chelsea which was a big morale boost for them. Will the front line of Mbappe, Neymar and Messi give Pep Guardiola a migraine or will Man City contain Messi and limit his abilities? League form has no consequences when one plays in the Champions League.
