PARIS (AP) - Evian ended Paris Saint-Germain's 36-game unbeaten run in all competitions by defeating the French league leader 2-0 Wednesday.

Clarck Nsikulu capitalized on a counterattack to fire home a low strike in the 75th minute before Pape Amodou Sougou cut inside Thiago Silva to beat goalkeeper Salvatore Sirigu in the 87th.

PSG saw its league lead over Lille cut to one point. The club had not lost since a 1-0 league loss to Reims on March 2, though it did go down on penalty kicks after a draw with Evian in the quarterfinals of last season's Coupe de France on April 17.

Also Wednesday, it was: Rennes 3, Saint-Etienne 1; Guingamp 0, Bordeaux 1; Ajaccio 1, Bastia 1; Sochaux 0, Reims 2; and Montpellier 0, Lorient 2.

On Tuesday, Lille and Monaco both won to put pressure on PSG while Nantes beat Valenciennes 2-1. Lille edged Marseille 1-0 and Monaco routed Nice 3-0.

On Thursday, Lyon hosts Toulouse.
