Terem Moffi scored Lorient's winner in the first minute of stoppage time

Paris St-Germain suffered their first defeat under Mauricio Pochettino as struggling Lorient claimed a famous, late victory over the champions.

The hosts led when Laurent Abergel slid the ball into the top corner.

Neymar scored two penalties, one either side of the break following fouls on him and Mauro Icardi.

Yoane Wissa levelled for Lorient with a fine solo goal and Terem Moffi latched on to a long ball from Abergel to score an injury-time winner.

PSG had sent numbers forward for a winner and Moffi was in one on one from his own half, the substitute keeping his composure to slot home.

Pochettino's side remain one point behind Lyon at the top, while Lorient stay in the relegation zone despite the victory.
