David Beckham: Sent off in stoppage time
Former England captain David Beckham was shown a straight red card in stoppage time at the end of Paris St Germain's tempestuous 1-0 win at Evian Thonon Gaillard.
PSG finished the game with just nine men on the pitch but still managed to close in on a first French title in 19 years, thanks to a goal from Javier Pastore five minutes into the second half.
Beckham came on as a second-half substitute and was dismissed two minutes into stoppage time for an ugly-looking lunge on Youssef Adnane, the Englishman's boot going well over the top of the ball.
Marco Verratti had already been sent off, having picked up his second yellow card of the game in the 80th minute, and a mass brawl broke out at the final whistle to cap an ill-tempered affair.
However, PSG will be champions for the first time since 1995 next Sunday if they can get more points against Valenciennes at home than OM pick up against Bastia at the Stade Velodrome.
