Paris St-Germain Held by League Leaders Lille
Paris St-Germain dropped points for the sixth time this season in Ligue 1 as they were held to a goalless draw away at new leaders Lille. Paris St-Germain manager Thomas Tuchel says his side has a couple of injury crisis and the draw could be linked it to.
They were without Neymar Jr who is with an injury, they, however, dominated possession but failed to create and only registered one shot on target. Lille on the other hand made very few chances.
Their best chance was when Kaylar Navas push Burak Yılmaz’s effort wide. Paris St-Germain stay third having drawn twice and lost four times in the 2020/20 season. They are a point behind Lille and second-placed Lyon.
Kylian Mbappe, on his 22nd birthday, started on the bench and when introduced in the 77th minute was unable to make a difference to the result, as the Parisians drew 0-0 in the league for the first time since May 2018.
Shortly after Mbappe’s introduction Lille had a four-on-one situation but a sensational sliding challenge from Presnel Kimpembe halted the attack.
