Even playing for 80 minutes with 10 men has been unable to prevent Paris Saint-Germain extending their lead at the top of the French league courtesy of a 2-0 win over Le Havre.
Goals from Kylian Mbappe and Vitinha ensured a seventh consecutive league win for Luis Enrique's team, and handed PSG a four-point cushion at the top after second-place Nice were handed their first loss of the season at Nantes on Saturday.
PSG had goalkeeper Gianluigi Donnarumma sent off for a reckless foul outside his box 10 minutes in - the Italy stopper came out of the area to clear a long ball but instead made contact with the face of Le Havre forward Josue Casimir.
Referee Bastien Dechepy showed him a red card and Bradley Barcola made way for substitute goalie Arnau Tenas, who was delighted to keep a clean sheet on his debut.
"It's wonderful," he said. "I'd like to thank everyone for this opportunity, it's an incredible day today."
PSG broke the deadlock on the break after Lee Kang-in set up Ousmane Dembele down the right side, and the winger crossed for Mbappe to curl home his 15th league goal of the season.
Vitinha completed PSG's win in the 88th minute from Manuel Ugarte's assist.
Goals from Takumi Minamino and Wissam Ben Yedder gave Monaco a hard-fought 2-0 win against Montpellier, moving them up to third in the table.
A point behind Monaco, Lille remain in fourth place after beating Metz 2-0 with goals from Yusuf Yazici and Jonathan David in first-half stoppage time.
