Stats & Facts: A look back at the win away to Nice

Check out the standout stats and facts from Les Parisiens’ 2-1 win over Nice in their rescheduled Matchday 32 clash in Ligue 1 last night.

A LIGUE 1 classic

Paris and Nice faced each other competitively for the 84th time last night, with Les Rouge et Bleu's overall head-to-head record against Les Aiglons now standing at 36 wins, 24 draws and 24 losses. By coming out on top yesterday, Paris Saint-Germain also recorded their ninth win in their last ten league trips to the Allianz Riviera.

the kids are alright

Both goals last night came from our young players. Bradley Barcola, who has been gaining momentum over the course of the final few games of the season, became the sixth Paris player to contribute to at least ten goals in Ligue 1 in 2023–2024 (11 in total, scoring four and assisting in seven) and, in doing so, follows in the footsteps of Kylian Mbappé (34) and Gonçalo Ramos (12) as well as Randal Kolo Muani, Vitinha and Ousmane Dembélé (11 each). This makes Paris the team with the highest number of players to have reached at least ten goal contributions during the current French top-flight campaign, ahead of Monaco (five).

On what was his 18th birthday, Yoram Zague opened his goalscoring account as a professional footballer last night, with the Paris defender becoming the youngest player to score a Ligue 1 goal on his birthday in 75 years! Zague also became the tenth-youngest player to make a first-team appearance in any competition for PSG in the club's history.


This season, the capital club have picked up 40 points away from home thanks to their 12 wins and four draws – a feat that no Ligue 1 team has ever matched in a season with 18 clubs or fewer (Saint-Étienne also reached 40 points on the road in 1969–70). Last night's win is doubly historic given that Paris Saint-Germain are now unbeaten in their last 23 away league games, dating all the way back to 26th February 2023 (3-0 v. Marseille, 2-1 v. Brest, 2-0 v. Nice, 2-1 v. Angers, 3-1 v. Troyes, 2-1 v. Auxerre, 1-1 v. Strasbourg, 1-1 v. Toulouse, 4-1 v. Lyon, 0-0 v. Clermont, 3-1 v. Rennes, 3-2 v. Brest, 3-0 v. Reims, 2-0 v. Le Havre, 1-1 v. Lille, 2-0 v. Lens, 2-1 v. Strasbourg, 2-0 v. Nantes, 0-0 v. Monaco, 6-2 v. Montpellier, 2-0 v. Marseille, 4-1 v. Lorient and 2-1 v. Nice). This is a record both domestically and in the club's history, ahead of their 18-game unbeaten run away from home in Ligue 1 between 2015 and 2016.
