Lille vs. Paris Saint-Germain - Football Match Report

Jose Fonte Lille 2018-19

Jose Fonte Lille 2018-19

Thomas Meunier's own goal put Lille ahead but Juan Bernat levelled - before being sent off for a professional foul on Nicolas Pepe after 36 minutes.

Jonathan Bamba and Gabriel scored within five minutes of one another to make it four, and Jose Fonte rounded off the scoring to deliver a humiliation slip to the champions elect.

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

They went on to concede four times in the second half for their heaviest league defeat under their Qatari owners.

Thomas Tuchel's side could have been crowned champions in record-equalling time last weekend but failed to beat Strasbourg, and they fell short again on Sunday despite needing just a point in a match that saw them have to play with 10 men for 54 minutes and lose both captain Thiago Silva and Thomas Meunier to injury.

"We're going to be champions but we can not lose like this", the 20-year-old Mbappe added.

However, they are still 17 points clear of second-placed Lille and if they win at Nantes on Wednesday they will still win the league with six matches to spare. "That's not normal. We have to show more personality, that's one of our faults and we have to fix that".

Attacker Pepe slotted home Lille's second five minutes after the break when he latched onto a superb Jonathan Ikone through ball and after that the floodgates opened.

After the match, Mbappe, speaking with Canal+, admitted PSG's biggest failing on the night was a lack of personality. "We made a good start to the match, with four goals, two for us and two offside".

"Today we played like amateurs. To win here, we would have needed more quality".

"Moussa Diaby and Thilo Kehrer could not play - they were sick!"

"Given the circumstances, we had a good game, I have to protect my players At 10, it became extra hard", Tuchel said. Everyone sees that. And I will tell that to the president, yes.

"Nobody is saying anything about this, though, as we keep winning".

Earlier, St Etienne moved up to fourth when Mathieu Debuchy's double helped them thrash Girondins de Bordeaux 3-0 at home.
