Paris Saint-Germain had two men sent off as they were beaten 2-1 by RB Leipzig at the Red Bull Arena in the Champions League on Wednesday night.

The French side went ahead through Angel Di Maria after six minutes, but then had a penalty saved. Christopher Nkunku equalised just before half-time, with Emil Forsberg putting the Germans ahead from the penalty spot after 57 minutes.

PSG midfielder Idrissa Gueye was sent off for two yellow cards, with defender Presnel Kimpembe also seeing red in stoppage time.

The result means Man Utd remain top of Group H, despite losing 2-1 at Istanbul Basaksehir, with PSG in third, three points off the top two qualification places with three games remaining.

There was more late drama as Andrei Mostovoy saw his strike in stoppage time ruled out for an offside in the build-up.
