Yohan Cabaye is sent off in PSG's 0-0 stalemate with Evian as the defending champions stutter to their second consecutive away draw of the new Ligue 1 season.

Yohan Cabaye was sent off as Paris Saint-Germain were held to a 0-0 draw by Evian TG this evening.

The defending champions have now failed to win their opening two Ligue 1 away games, having drawn 2-2 with Bastia in their first match of the campaign.

PSG talisman Zlatan Ibrahimovic, who scored 36 goals in 41 appearances last season, missed the encounter with a hip injury and Laurent Blanc's side struggled to create chances in his absence.

They only registered three shots on target throughout the contest, with Edinson Cavani stretching Jesper Hansen with a 23rd-minute free kick before shooting straight at the Evian keeper four minutes later, after being picked out by Lucas Moura's pass inside.

These efforts came in between two bookable offences for Cabaye, who was cautioned for an early lunge on Nicki Bille and then given his marching orders after a 63rd-minute foul on Fabien Camus.

PSG fashioned one more decent chance as the same combination of Moura and Cavani linked up, only for Hansen to save Cavani's shot from 12 yards, and it was Evian who nearly pinched victory late on.

Aldo Angoula's knockdown fell to Daniel Wass, but he dragged a stoppage-time shot wide to deny the club who were bottom of the French top flight before kickoff what would have been a famous win.
