Unbeaten run ends

PARIS – Paris St Germain’s league record 36-game unbeaten streak came to an abrupt halt when they lost 2-1 at Olympique Lyonnais on Sunday.

Maxwell Cornet and Sergi Darder, with an audacious piece of skill, scored the first-half goals that handed PSG their first Ligue 1 defeat since a 3-2 reverse at Girondins Bordeaux in March 2015.

Laurent Blanc’s side are still 23 points clear at the top of the table, after 28 matches, as they sail towards a fourth consecutive title.

“Congratulations to Lyon,” PSG defender David Luiz told Canal Plus television. “They played well.

“We didn’t play well tonight and the manager told us to wake up a bit at halftime but it was too late. We played badly and although we scored a goal, we were tired.”
