(Paris Saint-Germain-Lille 0-1) Neymar (29) messed up an expulsion at the end when Paris Saint-Germain lost the top match against Lille on Saturday night.
The Brazilian star chased the equalizer and he ran off the field to take the ball from Lilles Tiago Djalo. Neymar pushed to Djalo, and it ended up that Neymar incurred his second yellow card for the match – and thus marching order. Also the first yellow card was unnecessary.
Tiago Dialo received his second yellow card of the day in the same situation, because he did not give up the ball. Thus he also had to go out.
This is the fourth time Neymar has been sent off in Ligue 1.
Neymar had his first start in eight games for Paris Saint-Germain, which was level with Lille ahead of Saturday’s close match. He missed a great chance.
The 21-year-old Canadian Jonathan David sent Lille in the lead after 20 minutes – and it was to be the match’s only goal. After 35 minutes, the same David had to leave the pitch due to a knee injury. In came Timothy Weah.
David is up to ten goals this season.

Lille has thus taken over the top of the table – three points ahead of PSG, which now has three home losses in a row in Ligue 1. It is ten years since Lille became league champions in France. While Lille stands with 66 points, PSG has 63, Monaco 62 and Lyon 60 points.
Paris Saint-Germain have won seven of the last eight league championships. The club meets Bayern Munich in the quarterfinals of the Champions League next Wednesday.
