Ligue 1 Matchweek 22: second-bottom Lorient hand Pochettino his first PSG defeat (3-2)

Paris Saint-Germain have suffered their first defeat since Mauricio Pochettino took over as coach, falling to a 3-2 defeat in Ligue 1 at second-bottom Lorient.

Lorient started well and took a lead through Laurent Abergel, after some sloppy defending from Presnel Kimpembe and Danilo Pereira.

PSG, though, were able to turn the game around from the spot, as Neymar took and scored one penalty just before half time and then another just before the hour mark.

It looked like PSG were going to cruise to victory, but a late push from Lorient stunned the French champions.

Terem Moffi and Yoane Wissa combined well in the 80th minute, with the latter able to pull the home side level on the scoreboard.

Besides one Yarvin Kurzawa attempt, PSG didn't look like retaking the lead in the closing stages and it was Lorient who had the better chances.

Moffi was presented with a glorious counter-attacking chance in the first minute of stoppage time and he took it, earning second-bottom Lorient and impressive win and allowing Lyon to move top of the table.
