Paris St Germain coach Thomas Tuchel accepts his side again made "too many individual mistakes" as they followed up their Coupe de France defeat with a 3-2 loss at Montpellier.

The French champions were beaten in a penalty shootout by Rennes on Saturday, with forward Kylian Mbappe shown a red card for a studs-up challenge.

PSG, though, looked to have produced the required response on their return to Ligue 1 action at Stade de La Mosson but lost out thanks to two late Montpellier goals.

"We're disappointed, but we didn't play badly," Tuchel said at a press conference reported by the club. "We deserved to be ahead, but we made too many individual mistakes. That's been the case for a number of matches now, and that's why we are losing." PSG came into Tuesday's game with a 16-point lead over second-placed Lille and the title already sewn up.
