French leader PSG held to 0-0 draw by Ajaccio
PARIS (AP) -Paris Saint-Germain had midfielder Thiago Motta sent off on a frustrating night as it was held 0-0 by relegation battlers Ajaccio on Friday.
PSG had won its past four games without conceding a goal to head into the winter break ahead of Lyon and Marseille on goal difference, but this was one of PSG's worst performances of the season as new signing Lucas Moura failed to spark a near lifeless attack.
Top scorer Zlatan Ibrahimovic missed the best chance of the match when he volleyed over from close range midway through the first half and PSG was reduced to 10 men moments before the break when Motta clattered into midfielder Frederic Sammaratino from behind and was shown a straight red.
Earlier, Saint-Etienne was held to a 2-2 draw by Toulouse.
