FRANCK FIFE / AFP
Paris Saint-Germain lost the top game in French Ligue 1.
Against the OSC Lille the champions lost 0: 1 (0: 1) and had to relinquish the championship lead.
Neymar flew after a tussle in the 90th minute with yellow-red from the field.
Jonathan David scored the decisive goal early (20th minute): Lille from the Paris Pressing combined via former Bayern player Renato Sanches, David took a cross from Jonathan Ikoné directly, PSG captain Marquinhos falsified for keeper Keylor Navas.
Both teams then came to a promising conclusion, so Neymar put a free header next to the goal after preliminary work by Marquinhos (69th).
Ten minutes later, Lille's center forward Burak Yilmaz was cleared at the penalty spot, but Navas saved his shot (79th).
Paris could no longer compensate, the frustration was apparently great.
Neymar was fouled by Tiago Djaló after a running duel, the superstar jumped up again and pushed his opponent to the ground.
With the second yellow card from referee Benoît Bastien, Neymar was still well served, but he flew off with a yellow-red card.
Tiago Djaló also saw yellow-red (90th + 1).
For Paris it is the third defeat in the last six league games.
The previously tied Lille is now pulling away, while PSG had won the French Cup 3-0 against the northern French two weeks ago.
On Wednesday PSG will play the quarter-final first leg of the Champions League at Bayern Munich (9 p.m., live ticker SPIEGEL.de; TV: Sky).
