Jonathan David opens the scoring for Lillie, but goals from Marquinhos and Angel Di Maria sees PSG to victory; Andrej Kramaric and Sebastian Rudy score for Hoffenheim as they see of Hertha Berlin; Dedryck Boyata shown a straight red card for Hertha.

Angel Di Maria showed his worth as he set up the first and scored the winner to give Paris St Germain a 2-1 win against champions Lille in Ligue 1 after Lionel Messi limped off injured.

The home side – without Kylian Mbappe through illness – fell behind when Ligue 1’s top scorer Jonathan David netted his eighth of the campaign with 31 minutes on the clock.

Lionel Messi, a doubt before the match with a muscular problem, was then withdrawn at the interval.

But Marquinhos converted Di Maria’s cross after 74 minutes before the Argentine stole the three points following a neat one-two with Neymar with just two minutes remaining.

PSG extend their lead over Lens at the summit of Ligue 1 to 10 points. Lille, who would have deserved better after a convincing first half, are 11th with 15 points.
