Ligue 1: Stats, facts, and team news ahead of matchday eight

September 27, 2019 By Michelle Bonsu
Here's all you need to know heading into matchday eight of the 2019/2020 Ligue 1 season.

Matchday seven brought plenty of results, and some of them were shocking - none more so than PSG's home pitch defeat. Meanwhile, Monaco finally ended their frustrating run by picking up their first win of the season.

What will take place over the weekend? Will there be more surprising results?

Here's what you need to know ahead of matchday eight.

Team news: Who's missing out on matchday eight?

  • PSG: Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting, Edinson Cavani, Julian Draxler (all injured)
  • Monaco: Stevan Jovetic, Danijel Subasic, Willem Geubbels, Pietro Pellegri (all injured)
  • Marseille:  Florian Thauvin, Alvaro Gonzalez (both injured); Dimitri Payet and Boubacar Kamara (both suspended)
  • Lyon: No new injuries or suspensions

Stats and facts: What's at stake ahead of matchday eight?

  •  Dijon are still the only team who have yet to win a game after seven matchdays (D5 L2)

Talking points ahead of matchday eight

After a bright start, Marseille have started to lose form - can they re-find their way?

Two draws from their last two fixtures have cost Marseille dearly as they failed to pick up maximum points against Montpellier, and most troublingly, bottom-placed Dijon. Now they'll have to take on Rennes without the services of both Dimitri Payet and Boubacar Kamara who have received long term bans following ill discipline during the draw with Montpellier. 

How will PSG respond after shock loss midweek?

PSG saw their long-standing unbeaten home record come to an abrupt end midweek as they slumped to a shock 2-0 defeat to Reims. Les Parisiens have an away fixture in the Champions League coming up next as they face Turkish side Galatasaray, but first they must match wits against Bordeaux. Thomas Tuchel will want his side to  recover from their slump quickly.
