Ligue 1 leaders Paris Saint-Germain played more than one half with 10 men but salvaged a goalless draw at Stade de Reims on Saturday to extend their unbeaten run this season.
Sergio Ramos picked up a straight red card as tempers flared shortly before half-time, but a reshuffled PSG, in the absence of the injured Lionel Messi, managed to keep a clean sheet.
It was the 28th red card of Ramos’ career across all competitions, per ESPN Stats & Information.
“I will talk with the players because a lot of games are coming up and we need the maximum number of players,” PSG coach Christophe Galtier said.
“Missing games because of stupid suspensions and stupid bookings, we must fix that.”
PSG have 26 points from 10 games and lead Marseille, who slumped to a 2-1 home defeat by AC Ajaccio, by three points.
Reims are 14th on eight points.
The hosts played boldly but PSG had the best chance through Mbappe, who was denied from close range by Yehvann Diouf in the 33rd minute.
Ramos, however, picked up a yellow card after arguing with referee Pierre Gaillouste, who an instant later went back to the Spaniard and handed him a straight red card.
Coach Christophe Galtier replaced midfielder Carlos Soler with Neymar as PSG pushed for the win but the visitors lacked ideas and had to be content with sharing the points on a night to forget.
