were held to a 1-1 draw in their battle against

Rennes

on Sunday.

opened the scoring for Mauricio Pochettino’s side just before half-time. However,

at the top of the table with two games to play.

Marquinhos

criticized his team’s performance in a post-match interview.

“Of course it's a blow to morale. We will believe until the end, but we have to do a lot better at PSG.”

The PSG captain told

Canal+

.

“We know it's difficult and Lille win every game, but we have to believe we can win the title and win our last matches.

“We had chances and we couldn't score. Football is like that, it's details. If you can't be decisive ... We repeat it every time, but it's the truth. We have chances and we don't score. They score on a corner.”

Lille are now only four points away from securing the Ligue 1 title. They will play against Saint-Etienne and Angers in their remaining matches.

“It's football, but we realise that we have to do better when we see the results of the season. We lost games that we shouldn't. We lost too many points at home and it hurts us in the end.

“During the next week, we will have to talk. Because when you're at PSG, it's unacceptable to let points go like that. One, two, three times ... It's starting to happen a lot.

"It’s clearly not our best season. We weren't very strong and we have to do a lot better. We need to talk to each other for next season.”

PSG will play against

Montpellier

in the Coupe de France semi-final on Wednesday. They will finish their Ligue 1 campaign with matches against

Reims

and

Brest
