Montpellier 3-0 Paris St-Germain

Paul Lasne
Montpellier midfielder Paul Lasne scored his first goal of the season against PSG

Paris St-Germain missed the chance to go top of Ligue 1 after they suffered a surprise defeat at Montpellier.

Paul Lasne put Montpellier ahead three minutes before the interval at Stade de la Mosson when he lobbed the ball over PSG goalkeeper Alphonse Areola.

Ellyes Skhiri curled home a second shortly after half-time after Morgan Sanson cut the ball back, before Ryad Boudebouz's fine individual effort.

PSG are a point behind leaders Nice, who host Toulouse on Sunday.

Unai Emery's side were without Marco Verratti, Adrien Rabiot and Thiago Motta but still included Edinson Cavani, Angel di Maria and Lucas Moura in their starting line-up.

Montpellier's victory over the defending champions was their first in the league against PSG since May 2010 and only their fourth win of the season.
