Bayern Munich

PSG lose match and top spot ahead of Bayern match

Paris Saint-Germain suffered a setback ahead of their clash with FC Bayern. The French champions, who will face the German record champions in the first leg of the Champions League quarter-finals on Wednesday evening (21:00 CEST), lost 1-0 at home to LOSC Lille in the Ligue 1 top-of-the-table match on Saturday. With the defeat, the team from the French capital also had to give up their league lead to opponents Lille. Jonathan David scored the only goal of the game in the 20th minute. In addition, Paris superstar Neymar was shown a second yellow card in the final knockings of the game and will miss PSG’s next league match.

After a scuffle in the closing stages, Neymar saw a second yellow, as did his counterpart Tiago Djaló.

However, the Brazilian, who only returned from a month-long injury just before the international break, will of course be eligible to play on Wednesday in Munich. For PSG it was a third defeat in their last six league games, with all three defeats coming at home. Lille (66 points) now lead the table by three points ahead of the Parisians (on 63). Ex-Bayern player Renato Sanches started for the visitors on Saturday. 

PSG’s XI vs. Lille: Navas – Kehrer (Dagba 64′), Marquinhos, Kimpembe, Diallo (Bakker 64′) – Paredes, Gueye (Rafinha 71′) – Di Maria, Neymar, Mbappé – Kean (Draxler 64′).
