Match in numbers

Check out all the major stats and facts from Paris Saint-Germain's 4-2 win over Lyon on Sunday at the Parc des Princes:


With its victory over Lyon, Paris are now unbeaten in their last 21 matches in all competitions ... In the process, they have gone 12 matches without defeat in Ligue 1 (11 wins, 1 draw).


Angel Di Maria's goal and assist against Rudi Garcia's side continued his fine form. The Argentinian has been involved in 19 Ligue 1 goals this season (8 goals, 11 assists). That's at least eight more than any other midfielder in the top flight. In fact, El Fideo has been involved in four of Paris' last six league goals against Lyon (2 goals, 2 assists). The icing on the cake is that the No.11 is Ligue 1's best assists provider, with no fewer than 11 offerings delivered to his teammates, already matching last season's total.


Since the start of the season, Paris have scored a staggering 104 goals in all competitions. That's more than any other team in the five major European championships.


Marco Verratti was the most active player in the match against Lyon (128 touches) and took advantage of his side's victory to reach the symbolic barrier of 200 matches played in Ligue 1 in ROuge et Bleu. The Italy midfielder now has 99 home league matches to his name, with just one loss on the score sheet (80 wins, 18 draws). It was only on 3 November 2012 and a defeat by Les Verts (1-2) that the No.6 lost in Ligue 1 at the Parc des Princes.


Paris Saint-Germain are now the leading attack in Ligue 1 (63 goals scored), but also boast the best defence (17 goals conceded), the leading home team (10 wins) and also the team with the best away record (10 wins).
