Lille vs. Paris Saint-Germain - Football Match Report

15 April, 2019, 13:26 | Author: Heidi Alvarez
  • Paris Saint Germain was humiliated 5-1 at Lille on Sunday

The capital side, who would have clinched their eighth title by avoiding defeat, had Juan Bernat sent off before the break after the Spaniard had cancelled out Thomas Meunier's early own goal.

Pepe struck six minutes after half-time and further goals from Jonathan Bamba, Gabriel and Jose Fonte rubbed salt in the wounds of PSG, who failed to adjust to their man disadvantage.

Magalhaes and Fonte sealed an emphatic win for Lille with a header each in the 72nd and 84th minutes, respectively.

The loss was PSG's worst domestic defeat since going down 4-0 at Bordeaux in 2009, and the first time they had conceded five goals in the league since another 5-1 defeat at Sedan way back in 2000.

The game got off to an eventful start with Kylian Mbappe having two goals disallowed for offside in the first 15 minutes and PSG losing Thiago Silva to a muscle injury two weeks before the French Cup final against Stade Rennes.

PSG remain 17 points clear at the top of Ligue 1 and will be expected to wrap up the title against Nantes in midweek, but Lille enjoyed one night of swaggering dominance as they strengthened their grip on second place.

"You can not lose in this way. We played like debutants".

"We can't lack personality like that, and concede three, four, five goals".

"We don't have enough players". A lack of power cost Bamba a goal when he beat Areola only to see Thilo Kehrer gather the ball short of the line, so he made sure that was not an issue in the 65th minute when he rifled the ball past the keeper at his near post after breaking the offside trap. "What has not been normal has been winning most matches with so few players".

"Given the circumstances, we had a good game, I have to protect my players At 10, it became extra hard", Tuchel said.

"Yes, we're missing Lass Diarra and Adrien Rabiot".

"Yes, I will be telling the president as this situation is not good".

Qatari owner Nasser Al-Khelaifi could also be heard saying: "We need to raise the level of French football!"

Earlier, Saint-Etienne kept the pressure on Lyon and Marseille in the race for third spot with a 3-0 home win against Bordeaux.
