EXPRESSED THE DRAWN AT PARIS CHAMPAGNE!
Half outnumbered after Ramos was dismissed, PSG eventually had to accept a draw at Reims’ field (0-0). In a very tense part of the match, neither team will have scored in this match. This is the second draw in Ligue 1 this season for the Parisians, who won’t be able to convince them tonight before they take on Benfica on Wednesday.

First change for PSG
Vitinha, who replaced Marco Verratti for PSG, was warned and angry at the end of the first period.
Marquinhos’ big rant
At halftime, at Canal+, Marquinhos was shown a red card against Sergio Ramos: “Unbelievable! It’s getting too much. I don’t know if there’s anything personal against us. We don’t want to talk about refereeing. We always know their job is very difficult but still control the match.” He has to hold it in his hand. Every time we approach him he puts a card, we can’t speak. I don’t know what he’s doing. He heard it but put red on it. Sergio approached, he didn’t like this move and gave the card.”

NO GOAL FOR AUGUSTE DELAUNE, PARIS WILL FINISH THE MATCH WITH TEN
The break has come! Reims and PSG are leaving with a score of 0-0 after a very active first half. Already because Paris was pushed around by the entrepreneur Rémois and Sergio Ramos was expelled due to serious disagreements. Therefore, PSG will spend more than 45 minutes outnumbered.
2 minutes additional time
Two minutes of extra time will be played in the first half. The red card also contributed to this.
RED CARD TO RAMOS
After Sergio Ramos’ shirt was pulled, the referee issues a yellow card… followed by a red card for the Spaniard’s violent protest! Verratti gets the yellow!

PSG landed on the ball for a few minutes and is spinning the ball! Mbappé is shot from the left, but Gravillon smashes him in the foot.
Reims shows up a little
Free kick Reims and Zeneli on the axis! Confusion in the Paris area, but it’s finally settled!
GREAT OPPORTUNITY FOR PSG!
A magnificent Paris ball with Sarabia rising 50 meters up! He slides Bernat, who is centering hard in front of the goal, but no one cuts the skin!
And here we go after day 6 of the Top 14 to this Reims-PSG! Losing to Ajaccio this afternoon, Paris can take a five-point lead over OM!
Galtier describes PSG bus journeys: “We are all concerned with the climate issue”
PSG traveled by bus to reach Reims. It’s a trip that gets people talking after the debates around club plane trips and Christophe Galtier’s statements in recent weeks. In Canal+, the coach reverted to the club’s decisions and confirmed that Parisians will also be making other bus services throughout the season.
“We went to Lille by bus before, he remembers. The organization is excellent, we travel with very comfortable buses. I think it took 2h30-2h40… We had an accident on the highway, we got stuck a bit. But there will be other expeditions planned by bus. We will do it as soon as possible. Climate. Everyone is affected by the problem and I repeat, we traveled in very good conditions.”

Paris has everything to win tonight
If they win, Paris will have 28 points after 10 Ligue 1 games this season. In the 21st century, at least two teams have succeeded at this stage: Lyon (28, champion) in 2006/07 and PSG itself (30, champion) in 2018/19.
Oscar Garcia is missing from the bench
Reims head coach Oscar Garcia will not be on the bench tonight for personal reasons. He was replaced by his assistant Belgian Will Still.
Like many teams, Reims is battling against PSG
Reims failed to score in Ligue 1 with 4 losses against Paris and 12 goals scored. Stade suffered 5 consecutive losses after failing to score against the same opponent for the second time in its history after April 1976-December 1978 v Monaco (5). The latest Reims striker against PSG in the highest flight was Boulaye Dia in September 2019.
PSG composition, Neymar on the bench
Neymar on the bench. A good start with Mbappé, Sarabia and Soler, who have been sick lately. Vitinha is also a backup, Fabian Ruiz takes his place in the middle.
