PSG need to win to seal the championship after passing up a second chance to round up the title in spectacular style on Sunday, when they were hammered 5-1 at second-placed Lille in their worst defeat in a decade.

There was perhaps more embarrassment in conceding three times to a relegation-threatened team they had beaten in each of their past 14 top-flight meetings.

The visitors broke the deadlock of the game through ex Barcelona defender, Dani Alves who dribbled into space just outside the box after a pass from Paredes and then sent a right-footed curler effort to the top-left corner into the host's net.

One the stroke of half time, Waris tapped home a attractive connection to make it 2-1 for the Canaries.

Kalifa Coulibaly could have scored Nantes' fourth but missed an open goal with Gianluigi Buffon well out of his area. Diego's second, scrambled home from a corner seven minutes into the second half, left PSG with a mountain to climb.

Eric Choupo-Moting hit the post for PSG before 20-year-old Guclu pulled a goal back with a minute left but it proved to be too little, too late.

What does it mean? "Today, it's not possible to defend the players", Tuchel said.

PSG let in two goals against Lille from set pieces and did so again this time. The midfielder's delivery was excellent for both of Diego Carlos' goals, and his usage of the ball in general play was of an equally high standard.

Thomas Tuchel's side, who have now picked up only one point from their last three Ligue 1 outings, will be crowned champions on Sunday if they beat Monaco at home.
