Are you watching, Manchester City?
Considering Lyon are PSG’s principle title contenders in the French top flight, and considering that the win takes Paris 22 points clear of OL—who drop to sixth—and 17 ahead of Angers and AS Monaco in second and third respectively, it feels somewhat trite to pick on PSG’s faults.
However, goalkeeper Kevin Trapp made it fairly hard to ignore the French giants’ weak point.
The German stopper—recruited as an ‘upgrade’ on Salvatore Sirigu during the summer—had a remarkable lapse when he initially saved Jordan Ferri’s long-range effort, only to watch the ball loop up and across the goalline.
Trapp’s lapse may give some encouragement to Manchester City.
Having finished top of their Champions League group, the Citizens are set to meet one of the group runners-up, with PSG—who came second to Real Madrid in their pool—the most ominous potential opponent.
Should City draw the short straw and meet the French giants, they will at least take sustenance from Trapp’s penchant for a blunder.
