With the ball slowly advancing towards the open net, Choupo-Moting sensed an opportunity to not only ensure PSG retook the lead but add to his own tally along the way.

Christopher Nkunku's shot was going in until former Stoke forward Choupo-Moting needlessly got a touch on the line and stabbed it onto the post. "I touched the ball, it hit the post and, well, it's a real shame because the ball was going in.Sorry about that".

PSG made it 2-2 eight minutes from time when Kehrer headed home but despite the late efforts of Mbappe and Alves, the hosts were left frustrated.

With Neymar and Edinson Cavani out of the match through injury and Kylian Mbappe rested on the bench, the Cameroon global - who joined from Stoke in 2018 - was handed a rare start. We need to protect the players.

Divac, Sikma, 'T-Spoon' among Hall inductees
The 82-year-old Attles, the Golden State Warriors patriarch and a former coach and guard, was chosen as a contributor. Chris Webber , one of Divac's teammates with Sacramento, didn't make it into the Hall of Fame.


The draw at the Stade Auguste-Delaune moves them five points clear of third-placed Lyon, who slumped to a shock 3-1 loss at home to relegation-threatened Dijon on Saturday.

The shopping list should include an upgrade on Choupo-Moting, who will surely forever be remembered at PSG - and perhaps for his entire career - for his error. At first I thought he was going to pass me the ball, then he shot.

It also means PSG will have to wait a little longer to seal their sixth league trophy in seven years; a win would have wrapped the season up for them, but instead they'll have to now wait until next weekend to stitch up the league title.

PSG led through Choupo-Moting but Nuno da Costa levelled and Anthony Goncalves put the visitors ahead from 20 yards. One more bounce, and that ball was in the back of the net for a Nkunku goal. Choupo-Moting left the pitch soon after to make way for Mbappe in the final half-hour.
