PSG Report Card: A summary of the champions' Ligue 1 season so far

ESPN FC's Stuart Holden contends that Chelsea has better chemistry in midfield than PSG.

With Ligue 1 winding down for the winter break, how have Paris St-Germain fared so far this season, and can the champions keep hold of their title?

Your Season So Far -- In A Sentence

Slow and frustrating at times, but the sense is that PSG are asleep and have yet to really wake up and take their competition seriously.


Either the 3-2 win over Barcelona in the UEFA Champions League back in September, or November's 2-0 home victory against bitter rivals Olympique de Marseille...

Marseille and Lyon show Paris Saint-Germain what they're missing

Lyon manager Hubert Fournier urged his players to keep their feet on the ground following their superb 5-0 victory over Bordeaux.

Rebranding for an international audience, the phrase introduced by Paris Saint-Germain's Qatari owners as a bilingual French/English motto has become omnipresent around the club, and in the French football landscape in the last few years: Revons plus grand -- "Dream bigger." With Monaco shelving their own hopes with the summer sales of Radamel Falcao and James Rodriguez, many feared a Parisian procession to the title this season.

What PSG (or, in fact, anybody) can't have imagined was their...

Paris Saint-Germain limp to 2014 finish with disappointing draw vs. Montpellier

PSG striker Edinson Cavani has blamed a lack of focus for their recent form, which most recently saw them draw 0-0 with Montpellier in Ligue 1.

Paris Saint-Germain's final game of 2014 ended in a dull 0-0 draw with Montpellier HSC at Parc des Princes on Saturday. The result means that Les Parisiens are without a win in two Ligue 1 matches, having failed to score in consecutive fixtures for the first time since 2012 and will also not finish the year top of Le Championnat -- unless Olympique de Marseille and Olympique Lyonnais lose heavily on Sunday.

Practically full-strength PSG look to finish 2014 with a flourish

Paris Saint-Germain boss Laurent Blanc previews their French Ligue 1 match against Montpellier, and notes that his side are currently on a run of poor form.

Paris Saint-Germain will host Montpellier on Saturday in their final competitive match of 2014 at Parc des Princes. The French champions ended a run of two straight defeats in all competitions with a 3-1 win over Ajaccio in the Coupe de la Ligue on Wednesday, but Laurent Blanc's men are yet to respond to last week's 1-0 defeat away to Guingamp in Ligue 1.

Les Parisiens are still just one solitary point behind Olympique de Marseille at the summit of Le Championnat, so the capital outfit can put the...

PSG negotiate tricky Ajaccio test as Coupe de la Ligue title defence begins

Serge Aurier climbs above the Ajaccio defence to nod PSG into the lead on Wednesday.

Paris Saint-Germain got their Coupe de la Ligue title defence underway with a 3-1 win over Ligue 2 side AC Ajaccio on Wednesday. The Corsican side did not prove to be rollovers at the Stade Francois Coty, even if the scoreline suggests that the result was never in doubt, but Laurent Blanc's men did eventually get the job done.

Johan Cavalli's 27th minute penalty gave the hosts the lead and Les Ours could and should have doubled it before the end of the first half. Lucas Moura provided Edinson Cavani...
