Neymar's penalty goal was the difference as Paris Saint-Germain beat RB Leipzig 1-0 in the Champions League on Tuesday.
However, according to RB Leipzig coach Julian Nagelsmann, the referee should never have pointed to the spot.
Speaking to Sky Germany in a post-match interview, the 33-year-old accused Angel Di Maria of diving to win the penalty.
"I don't think Paris had a real chance in the game and the penalty was a joke," Nagelsmann said and added:
"That decision at Champions League level – that's really sad. That was a dive, there was zero contact. VAR was probably watching another game.
"Sometimes nuances make the difference and in the end it would have been deserved if we had rewarded ourselves. Now we are holding worse cards in the group, we have to win our two games and hope that Paris doesn't succeed."
Tuesday's result means RB Leipzig slipped to third in the group, level on points with second-placed PSG.
