Mar­quin­hos pulled a goal back in the 64th minute and a PSG equaliser looked on the cards un­til Motta was sent off for an in­ci­dent in the Nice penalty area af­ter the ball had been cleared.

From the re­sult­ing free-kick, Nice goal­keeper Yoan Car­di­nale sent Pereira away down the right and his cross was headed in by Do­nis at the far post.

PSG’s frus­tra­tion boiled over when Di Maria reck­lessly scythed down Arnaud Sou­quet and was sent off.

Flo­rian Thau­vin scored a hat­trick to lead sixth-placed Mar­seille to a 5-1 win at rel­e­ga­tion­threat­ened Caen while Maxime Lopez scored the other two for the vis­i­tors.

The re­sult sent Caen into 18th place, the rel­e­ga­tion play­off spot, while Di­jon moved above them on goal dif­fer­ence af­ter a 00 draw against Bordeaux. Reuters
