“But it’s not possible, he’s only 16?!” : Zaire-Emery, story of an outclassed

“Of the three PSG stars, Neymar is the one most at risk of dropping out”
On the scale of the entire Ligue 1, reaching such a threshold remains a great performance since before the arrival of the Qatari owner, only Lyon had been able to reach a better total after 19 days since victory is worth three points. It was in 2006/2007 (50 pts).
Lens, dolphin at the head of champion
Simply unheard of. With 44 units on the clock, Lens achieved the best first half of the season in its history. It is even the best mid-race record for a dolphin since the victory is worth three points. Before Racing, Monaco had raised the record to 42 pawns in 2016/2017 and that year, the Rocher club had finished champion…
Even taking into account all the exercises played before 1994-1995, by awarding three points for a victory, no team had done better than that of Franck Haise. In 1959/1960, Reims would also have had 42 units. Moreover, with such a total, Lens would have been the championship leader at mid-season in 19 of the last 28 seasons. Outstanding.
Marseille, exceptional third
No white effect at OL: “They need a coach who kicks them in the ass”
That year, the team led by Roland Courbis had increased the counter to 44 units but ended up losing the championship to Bordeaux on the last day. Never had a third completed the first leg with such a good record. With 42 points, OM would have been league leaders in 16 of the last 28 exercises.
Monaco and Rennes, pursuers at a crazy pace
What makes this 2022/2023 vintage so special is also the pace of the pursuers. Because even if the leading trio are advancing at a very high pace, the pursuers Monaco (4th) and Rennes (5th) have not been won. Only twice since the 1994/1995 season has a 4th in Ligue 1 scored more points after 19 matches. It was when the championship could count on a very competitive quartet:
- Lyon in 2016/2017 (37 pts);
- Marseille in 2016/2017 (38 pts).
On the other hand, never a 5th in the championship had obtained such a good record.
