A Kylian Mbappe-less Paris Saint-Germain misfired in his absence in their table-topping Ligue 1 clash with Nice, as Mauricio Pochettino’s side were downed 1-0 by a late Andy Delort strike at Allianz Riviera.

Christophe Galtier’s hosts snatched a dramatic late victory over the league leaders in Saturday’s contest to move into second place as their visitors struggled to deliver without the France forward leading their ranks.

The attacker, top of the leaderboard for combined goals and assists in Ligue 1 this term, missed out as he served a one-match suspension following his yellow card against Nantes last month.

Though Les Parisiens remain comfortably entrenched at the front of the title race, 13 points clear of their opponents, they will hope to rediscover their spark in time for next week’s Champions League clash with Real Madrid.
