Lille 0-1 Paris St-Germain

Lucas Moura
Paris St-Germain won four domestic trophies last season

Paris St-Germain started their defence of the Ligue 1 title with victory at Lille despite being forced to play with 10 men for more than an hour.

Midfielder Adrien Rabiot was sent off in the 27th minute for a second yellow card but Lucas Moura secured the win.

The Brazilian rounded keeper Vincent Enyeama in the 57th minute to slot home after a slick passing move.

New signing Angel Di Maria, who is not match fit, was at the game after his £44.3m move from Manchester United.

PSG were also without forward Zlatan Ibrahimovic, who has a knee injury.

Laurent Blanc's side are chasing a fourth successive French league title.
