Fortress Coubertin: Invincible for 50 matches


Courtesy of their victory over Chambéry (32-29) on Thursday, Paris Saint-Germain Handball have now gone 50 matches without defeat at home in all competition.

Les Rouge et Bleu have not tasted defeat at the Stade Pierre-de-Coubertin since 8 June 2017 and a 38-37 loss to Nantes in Week 26 of the Lidl Starligue and are undefeated at home in two years, four months and two days.

During this record-breaking run, Les Parisiens have recorded a near-perfect 49 wins and one draw in 29 Starligue matches, 17 Champions League matches, three Coupe de la Ligue matches and one Coupe de France match.

This exceptional performance equals the record set by Montpellier Handball between February 2001 and November 2003, who went 49 wins and one draw in 50 matches without loss.

This record-equalling performance can now be added to Paris Saint-Germain Handball’s honours list of two Lidl Starligue championships, two Coupes de la Ligue triumphs and one Coupe de France crown.

Raul Gonzalez’s men have won their last 29 matches at the Stade Coubertin; a period of over two seasons without dropping a solitary point at home.
