Choupo-Moting’s shocking miss means PSG fail to wrap up Ligue 1 title


The former Stoke City forward Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting was guilty of an extraordinary miss as PSG botched the chance to wrap up the Ligue 1 title after a 2-2 draw with Strasbourg.

Choupo-Moting needlessly deflected a goal-bound shot from his team-mate Christopher Nkunku on to the post from less than a yard out, thereby preventing his side going 2-1 in front in the first half.

The Cameroon striker had given PSG a 13th-minute lead but Strasbourg equalised through Nuno da Costa and Anthony Gonçalves gave the visitors the advantage before the break.

PSG looked to be heading for only the second defeat of their league campaign until the substitute Thilo Kehrer equalised eight minutes from time.

PSG had been given the chance to clinch the title after second-placed Lille were held to a 1-1 draw at Reims in an earlier kick-off. The French champions remain 20 points clear.
