Third-placed Paris St Germain lost ground in the Ligue 1 title race when it slumped to a 2-0 home defeat against Monaco on Sunday after wins for its main rivals.

Five days after humbling Barcelona 4-1 in the Champions League, the French champions lacked stamina and inspiration as it fell four points behind leader Lille which has 58 points from 26 games after beating Lorient 4-1 on Sunday.

Fourth-placed Monaco, which has now won eight of their last nine league games, prevailed through goals by Sofiane Diop and Guillermo Maripan to move within two points of PSG.

Olympique Lyonnais is second on 55 points following a 3-2 win at Brest on Saturday.
