Paris Saint-Germain's Brazilian star Neymar sent off late on Saturday as the Ligue 1 champion's hopes of claiming a fourth successive league title were dented by Lille.

Ahead of Saturday's title showdown, the two teams had been level on 63 points at the top of the table, with PSG leading on goal difference, but with seven games to go Lille looks in pole position to win Ligue 1 for the first time in a decade.

It's the first time in a quarter of a century that Lille has beaten PSG in the capital, with Canadian Jonathan David scoring the winner in a 1-0 victory as the Parisians slumped to a third successive home defeat.

In the game's closing stages, Neymar clashed with Lille's Tiago Djalo and, with both players on yellow cards, they were red carded by referee Benoît Bastien in the 90th minute and stoppage time

Lille had lost their previous two matches coming into Saturday's game, including a surprise defeat by Nîmes, but Christophe Galtier's team will drew confidence for the run-in having only suffered fewer losses than only Atletico Madrid and Inter Milan (two defeats) in Europe's top five leagues.

The win over PSG also ensured Lille recorded their 18th clean sheet in 31 games.
