Ligue 1: Late Rally Denies PSG Top Spot

Saturday, February 14, 2015 8:07 pm

Two goals in stoppage time saw mid-table Caen come away from Parc Des Princes with a dramatic point in a 2-2 draw at Paris St. Germain in a Ligue 1 match on Saturday.

The Parisian side went into the match with a chance of going top of the French top flight for a few hours and looked well on their way with a two-goal lead heading into the final minutes in Paris.

Talisman Zlatan Ibrahimovic had given PSG the lead as early as the second minute while Ezequiel Lavezzi doubled the home side’s advantage five minutes before the break.

The first half goals however got cancelled in a dramatic end to the match, with Emiliano Sala pulling one back for Caen on the dot of 90 minutes before Herve Bazile stunned PSG with a stoppage time equaliser.

The result saw Caen go down one place to 15th while PSG remain third on 49 points, behind second placed arch-rivals Olympique Marseille on goal difference.

Meanwhile league leaders Olympique Lyon, leading by a point, now have a chance to open a four-point lead when they face Lorient on Sunday.

Elsewhere in Ligue 1 on Saturday, Nigerian goalkeeper Vincent Enyeama kept a cleansheet for Lille in the goalless draw at home to Onyekachi Apam’s Nice while the match between Monaco and Montpellier had to be postponed.
