Waiting for Beckham, PSG slump at Sochaux

PARIS: Paris Saint Germain clearly need the cool head and experience of David Beckham on the evidence of a careless showing on Sunday at struggling Sochaux, where the French title hopefuls slid to a shock 3-2 loss.

With the former England star set to make his grand entrance in next weekend’s ‘clasico’ against bitter rivals Marseille, PSG, chasing a first league crown since 1994, had expected to cruise six points clear of Lyon who showed their own mettle earlier with a 4-0 thrashing of Bordeaux. Instead, the Parisians slid to their fourth league loss of the campaign to leave the race for the championship wide open.

The capital club, bankrolled for the past two seasons by Qatari cash, now have 51 points from 25 matches for just a three-point lead over Lyon with Marseille just two points further back to add spice to next week’s encounter.
