PSG forced to wait to clinch title after being held by Strasbourg

Though he's played regularly enough in Paris, the 30-year-old is very much back-up to the likes of Kylian Mbappe, Neymar and Edinson Cavani. That being said, feast your eyes on this unbelievable shit, which even the most rank of Sunday League spud wouldn't be able to recreate if they tried it a thousand times.

PSG should have regained the lead at 1-1 but an astonishing miss by Choupo-Moting meant it stayed level.

Choupo-Moting needlessly deflected a goal-bound shot from team-mate Christopher Nkunku onto the post from point-blank range to prevent his side going 2-1 in front in the first half.

But they didn't need the 27-goal striker to open the scoring, with summer signing Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting opening the scoring just after the 10-minute mark after a inch-perfect cross from Colin Dagba.

Strasbourg eventually picked up a draw against the reigning Ligue 1 champions, stopping them from winning another title for the time being.

"He shot, I thought that the defender was maybe going to take the ball and, after, I hesitated to take the ball, I asked myself if I was offside and everything went very quickly".

PSG has a 20-point lead over Lille and will be crowned next week if it beats its northernrival away.

Eric Choupo-Moting's early opener was cancelled out by Nuno Da Costa before Anthony Goncalves put the visitors ahead in the 38th minute.

Thilo Kehrer came to the rescue late on for the hosts after a shock defeat was on the cards, but had they won they could have celebrated another Ligue 1 title.

The youngster's effort appeared goalbound until the onrushing Choupo-Moting somehow, needlessly, stopped it on the line and failed to turn it home, denying his side a second.

He was replaced by Mbappe after 60 minutes with his side a goal behind and chasing the game.
