PSG were without Kylian Mbappe for the game, who missed out due to suspension.
But they were still able to field a fearsome front three consisting of Angel Di Maria, Neymar and Lionel Messi.
However, despite having so much firepower, PSG were unable to find the net in the game at Allianz Riviera.
And it was the hosts that won it late on with Andy Delort striking the winner in the 88th minute.
It was a disappointing evening for PSG and Neymar’s frustration was plain to see at the end of the game.
Amine Gouiri showboated immediately after the final whistle as he attempted a rainbow flick.
Neymar took offence and he responded by pushing Gouiri. There was a small coming together but tensions soon subsided.

Neymar has a history of showboating, which has angered his opponents in the past.
He was given a taste of his own medicine on Saturday evening and he didn’t react to it very well.
The Brazilian wasn’t angry for long though as he could soon be seen with a smile on his face and swapping shirts with Flavius Daniliuc.
PSG will be disappointed with the defeat but they still hold a convincing 13-point lead at the top of Ligue 1.
Nice have now moved into second and will be hoping that they can somehow reel in PSG to win back-to-back Ligue 1 titles.
Neymar and PSG are next in action on Wednesday evening, when they take on Real Madrid in their crunch Champions League last-16 second leg tie in Spain.
