And a new defeat which makes six losses in Ligue 1. Beaten at home by Monaco (0-2) Sunday evening, the PSG again let slip precious points in the fight to retain its title of champion of France.
What's more against a team in the top quartet, of which Paris has never beaten another member this season.
“It was a tough game, but we knew we were playing against a good team.
They are behind us, but they have a very good championship and have very good players, reacted Marco Verratti, on the bench at kick-off, at the microphone of Canal + at the end of the meeting.
We knew it, but these are games you have to win.
There, we start to lose a lot of opportunities to win this title.
The other teams move forward.

“Monaco must be congratulated, but we must also do a little mea-culpa.
We took a goal after five minutes (
Editor's note: in the 6th minute
), that can't happen.
Five minutes in the second half, and we take another goal (
Editor's note: in the 51st minute
)… They didn't create much, but they scored and after that we couldn't get the match back.
PSG-Monaco (0-2): the ratings of Parisian players
Third four points behind leader Lille, PSG had not lost six Ligue 1 games since the 2010-2011 season, where the Northerners had managed to double the Coupe de France-championship.
A worrying total, while there are still twelve games left for the Parisians.
