Paris Saint-Germain's Ligue 1 title charge took a blow on Sunday when they were defeated 2-1 by Lille, putting them five points behind leaders Montpellier.

REUTERS - Paris St Germain's title hopes suffered a major blow when they lost 2-1 at Lille on Sunday to stay five points behind leaders Montpellier with four games
left.

Qatari-backed PSGs remained second on 67 points, two ahead of champions Lille who moved back into contention for an automatic Champions League place.

A Javier Pastore header gave PSG the lead in the 48th minute.

Eden Hazard cancelled out the opener from the penalty spot in the 71st minute after Mamadou Sakho was shown a straight red card for a challenge on substitute Nolan Roux.

Roux clinched the hosts' victory eight minutes later when he netted from close range from a Tulio de Melo header after Belgian Hazard initiated a superb passing move.
