Paris St Germain missed an opportunity to move top of the Ligue 1 standings when they suffered an embarrassing 2-1 home defeat against strugglers Nantes on Sunday.

Nantes' Randal Kolo Muani cancelled out Julian Draxler's first-half opener after a Kylian Mbappe blunder before Moses Simon scored in the 71st minute to stun the champions.

After their seventh league defeat of the season - the fourth at the Parc des Princes - PSG are second with 60 points from 29 games, three behind Lille who drew 0-0 at AS Monaco as none of the top four teams won at the weekend.

Di Maria and Marquinhos robbery

The post game talking point however was not the scoreline but the disturbing news that Angel di Maria's house was robbed with his family present with the incident occurring at his Neuilly-sur-Seine residence as the game took place at Parc des Princes. The Argentine was substituted in the 65th minute of the game after PSG sporting director Leonardo informed head coach Mauricio Pochettino of the incident with the club later confirming the motive for the switch.

Initial reports suggest that both the Argentine's house along with that of Marquinhos were burgled as both players were involved in the PSG Ligue 1 clash
