PSG returned to the Parc des Princes for the 29th matchday of the Ligue 1 and lost 0-1 to the visiting Lyon. This defeat marked the second consecutive league loss of PSG, and the fifth this season. This was, also, the second loss at home by PSG since they did for the last time in April 2021 (before they dropped one to Rennes before the break).

In a game in which PSG shot fewer than five times on goal and lost ground with their most immediate chasers in the table, the crowd of the Parc booed Lionel Messi and all of his pals in another day to forget ending in defeat to one of the most mediocre squads in the French top-flight division.

Christophe Galtier was stubborn as ever, used a five-man, three-center-back defensive line even though that meant baking subpar players into it, and obviously ended up losing another game but incredibly retaining his position as manager of PSG.

Here are the grades from our Parisian men after they lost their second league game after winning four in a row on a dark evening that will make it harder for them to win the historic 11th Ligue 1 title.

PSG vs Lyon - Grades: Goalkeepers

4 - Donnarumma: Saw Lacazette miss a penalty for the first time this season after creating that mess himself. Saved a couple midway through the second half, but bagged Barcola's game-winning goal too so that drops the grade. At least he didn't have to do anything with his feet as PSG didn't have to create from the back with Lyon sitting very deep and waiting for PSG in their own third.
