Dijon, depleted by injury, climb off the foot of the Ligue 1 table with victory.

Thomas Tuchel said Paris St Germain failed to play as a team in their shock 2-1 defeat to struggling Dijon.

The Ligue 1 leaders surrendered the lead given to them by Kylian Mbappe’s 19th-minute strike as goals either side of half-time from Mounir Chouiar and Jhonder Cadiz saw a Dijon side depleted by injury climb off the foot of the table.

They had to survive an onslaught to do it, with the visitors hitting the crossbar and a post as they piled forward in the last half an hour, but it was not to be PSG’s night.

“It’s football, anything is possible, no?” Tuchel said in comments reported by L’Equipe.

“This is not the first time that the bottom side in the table beats the side that is leading, and it will not be the last.

“We lost the game in the first half because we only had three shots. In the second, we had 17. It’s a big difference.

“But we conceded two goals and too many opportunities, it’s not normal. We played very, very, very passively during the first half.

“We never controlled the game, we never played with the precision, the speed and the mentality that is necessary.

“Today we did not deserve to win because we did not play together. Each player played his position but not in a rhythm.

“In the end it’s a win for Dijon and that’s it.”
