Paris Saint-Germain’s title defense is hanging by a thread after a 1-1 draw in Rennes on Sunday, three points behind leaders Lille with just two games to go.
PSG led Neymar’s penalty seconds before half-time. It was given after a lengthy video review, although it looked like Nayef Aguerd had made a clean tackle in the area over left-back Layvin Kurzawa.
After PSG goalkeeper Keylor Navas saved the handsome curler from midfielder Flavien Tait at 20 meters (yards) in the middle of the second half, Rennes striker Serhou Guirassy superbly directed the corner of local winger Benjamin Bourigeaud to the 70th.
PSG recklessly had center-half Presnel Kimpembe sent off towards the end and could have lost for the ninth time in the league this season. But the Navas alert saved again from Tait’s pierced shot in the first minute of added time.
Seventh place Rennes was rewarded with a solid performance, closing the gap slightly to one point over Lens and Marseille’s fifth place in the Europa League.
Lille appear ready for their first title since 2011 and have a better head-to-head record after drawing a home draw against PSG and winning away.
With two rounds remaining, PSG are just two points ahead of third-placed Monaco, who won 1-0 in Reims to stay in the Champions League places.
Marseille lost crucial points in the Europa League race after a 1-0 loss to Saint-Etienne but are fifth on goal difference.
Monaco struck in the 20th minute by midfielder Eliot Matazo, who soared from deep in his own half and exchanged passes with Wissam Ben Yedder on the edge of the penalty area before finishing in full confidence.
It was Monaco’s sixth win in the last seven games without conceding a goal, a perfect copy that was only erased by last weekend’s loss to Lyon.
Midtable Saint-Etienne’s goal came in the 43rd minute when Arnaud Nordin turned Wahbi Khazri’s cross from the left at the far post.
After Marseille goalkeeper Steve Mandanda prevented further goals, the visitors nearly equalized when substitute Dario Benedetto’s late header was saved.
Marseille defender Alvaro Gonzalez criticized the attitude of his teammates.
“I’m angry because we didn’t score today,” he told Canal Plus. “I think the team doesn’t understand how important these games are to be European next season.”
