PSG is still struggling to collect points… especially at the Parc - the Parisians have collected only 12 points from 11 matches…

2 wins: in Monaco 2-1 and in Le Mans 2-0.

6 draws: Sochaux 0-0, in Lens 0-0, in Metz 0-0, Lille 1-1, OM 1-1, in Valenciennes 0-0.

3 losses: 3 losses at the Parc des Princes! Against Lorient 3-1, Bordeaux 2-0 and Rennes 3-1.

The Parisians are still unbeaten on the road.

8 goals scored: Armand and Diané 2 goals, Pauleta 1, Frau 1, Ceara 1 and Luyindula 1. 8 goals from inside the area; 3 headed goals (Luyindula, Armand and Diané); 2 goals crosses; 2 goals after free kicks. 132 shots for 8 goals! Rothen has 4 assists, 2 from set pieces.

11 goals conceded: 1 from outside the area and 10 from inside; 1 from a penalty (Lorient); 1 free kick (Monaco); 1 after a cross; 1 after a free kick; 1 after a corner; 1 headed goal. PSG has the worst defence at home , with 10 goals conceded. 145 shots for the opposition.

Paul Le Guen has used 23 players. Landreau and Camara have played every minute of all 11 matches. Frau, Clément and Diané have played in every match.

13 yellow cards: Luyindula 2, Rothen 2, Pauleta 2… and no red cards.

The last few times OL has visited the Parc, the Parisians have won 3 (in 2003-04, in 2002-03 and in 1997-98), drawn 5 times, including once last season, and have lost twice (1-0 both times).

PSG beat Lorient in Brittany 3-0 in the last 32 of the Coupe de la Ligue (a brace from N'Gog and one Pauleta strike). They will host Montpellier in the last 16.
