ANNECY, France — Uninspired Paris Saint-Germain sorely missed star striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic as the defending champion drew 0-0 with lowly Evian in the French league on Friday.

Edinson Cavani usually plays on the wings when Ibrahimovic is in the starting lineup. But the Sweden striker's absence because of a left oblique muscle injury allowed Cavani to play as a center forward, his favored position.

Cavani had two clear-cut chances but was denied by Evian goalkeeper Jesper Hansen in the 27th and 71st minutes.

PSG was reduced to 10 men in the 63rd minute when Yohan Cabaye was sent off. The France midfielder was booked for a foul on Evian forward Nicki Nielsen in the 17th before receiving a second yellow card for tripping substitute Fabien Camus.
