PSG lost the Ligue 1 lead and Neymar lost his head on Saturday when the Brazilian was sent off for pushing Lille defender Tiago Djalo before the pair collided in the tunnel.
Lille took first place with a 1-0 victory over the champions, with Jonathan David scoring the winner in a fiery clash with Neymar and Kylian Mbappe squandering a lot of chances.
Neymar saw red in injury time and took a furious revenge after a tough challenge from Djalo. He earned his second yellow for pushing the center-back, who was also sent off for his foul-mouthed tirade aimed at the winger.

The red card was Neymar’s second of the season, after he was also rejected against Marseille
Neymar has only played 12 games in the league this season, with his season ravaged by injuries and suspensions.

The 29-year-old’s inability to control his frustration threatens to cast a shadow over his career, with the winger making more headlines with his grumpy demeanor than his brilliant technique.
