The ideal exclamation point for PSG. After running several seasons past the perfect season, and often failing by very little, the capital club holds its place in history. The Parisian team won against Créteil on Wednesday (38-33) in its Coubertin hall to score a thirtieth victory in thirty days, a first in the annals of the French Championship.
Champions for several weeks, the teammates of the Karabatic brothers only had this objective in mind on the national scene. In recent seasons, a draw or a rare defeat had marred PSG’s balance sheets. Montpellier (a defeat in a 14-team championship in 2010 and 2011), OM-Vitrolles (two draws in 1996) and Paris, had come close, in vain, to this feat.

A DAY AGO
And now, the Cup to finish?
This season, the two trips to Montpellier and Nantes were the two tightest matches for Raul Gonzalez’s players, who each time won by one goal, 34-33 in Montpellier on a goal at the very last second. of Mikkel Hansen, and 30-29 in Nantes. This unbeaten record over a season was close to the Parisians’ hearts, especially after the premature elimination in the quarter-finals of the Champions League in Kiel, a defeat by one goal (63-62 on all two matches) .
“We may not realize it yet, but to do a clear round in the Starligue, with the level which is so high, I think it’s a feat. We must not minimize it, it has been an investment throughout the season, we have never weakened. We did something historic“, commented captain Luka Karabatic after the meeting.

Wednesday, in their hall of Coubertin and carried once again by the Parisian football ultras who came as neighbors, the PSG players did not experience the same cold sweats as against Nantes or Montpellier, dominating the Cristoliens who found themselves behind to the score from the first seconds of the match. Nikola Karabatic delivered a full performance with seven goals on seven shots, top scorer in Paris.
Guigou did not play what was to be his last game
The meeting between Parisians and Cristoliens was marked by the serious injury to the left knee of Boïba Sissoko, future replacement for Michaël Guigou in Nîmes, who left the field carried by Nedim Remili and two of his teammates from US Créteil.
Before a big renewal of the workforce (departures of Mikkel Hansen in Aalborg, of Vincent Gérard in Saint-Raphaël, of Nedim Remili and Benoît Kounkoud in Kielce, of Yann Genty in Limoges), the Parisians will have one last trophy to pick up on Saturday at Bercy in the final of the Coupe de France against Nantes, second in the championship.
In the other matches of the evening, Nîmes went to win in Limoges, for what was to be the last match of the international Michaël Guigou, who was not finally aligned on the score sheet.
