The Lorient of Christophe Pélissier, penultimate in Ligue 1, gave a big surprise after beating PSG in injury time, who lost the championship lead in one of the worst games of the season. A goal from Moffi in the final stretch tipped the balance in favor of the Bretons, who played an almost perfect match. Pochettino once again aligned the fantastic four in attack: Di María, Neymar, Mbappé and Mauro Icardi. The Santa Fe has established the 4-4-2 as a usual system during the last weeks in an eleven that had as a novelty that of Danilo, who occupied the low of Marco Verratti in the center of the field, as well as Sergio Rico, who started at the start for Keylor Navas' muscular discomfort. The first half between both teams did not reflect that Lorient was eighteenth and PSG leader of the Ligue 1.

The Bretons made a spectacular first half, closing any pass option to the Parisians and forcing Pochettino's men to always go on the wing. In fact, it was Lorient that had the clearest chances in the first act, leaving PSG without shooting for practically the first 45 minutes until injury time. Les Merlus, who arrived on a roll after beating a direct rival like Dijon in injury time during the week, enjoyed great chances to get ahead on the scoreboard. The clearest, a shot from Grbic from the middle distance that forced Sergio Rico to intervene. Pélissier's men finally found their prize, thanks to a great shot from Abergel in the front of the area, taking advantage of Danilo's indecision. PSG, who had not shot on goal before the 43rd minute, took advantage of a Mendes error through Neymar, which overwhelmed the Brazilian and made Lorient's only defensive error during the first half. The former Barça player did not forgive and PSG went to rest with a draw that did not reflect what was seen on the field during the first 45 minutes. Mendes, who was playing a rather serious game as a right-winger, suffered a dejà vû as soon as the second half began. The Lorient player took Icardi ahead to commit his second penalty of the afternoon. Neymar did not forgive and PSG faced the final stretch of the match with a disproportionate advantage after having one of the worst games of the season.

However, neither with a favorable result was PSG able to generate danger against Lorient. Pochettino took a long time to make the changes and the Breton team grew as the minutes passed. The incomes of Moffi and Wissa gave greater dynamism in attack to the locals, who managed to tie with ten minutes to go thanks to a great combination of Moffi and Wissa that would end up signing the latter with his left leg. Moffi, who changed the game, found in the last minute a gigantic imbalance in the defense of PSG and beat Sergio Rico with an extraordinary calm, giving the victory to his team and taking the lead from PSG, who added his first defeat with Pochettino on the bench.
