PSG missed the opportunity to wrap up their Ligue 1 title after a draw against Strasbourg

Paris St-Germain 2-2 Strasbourg

Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting was guilty of arguably the worst miss in the history of football as Paris St-Germain squandered the chance to wrap up the Ligue 1 title against Strasbourg.

Christopher Nkunku’s shot was going in until former Stoke forward Choupo-Moting needlessly got a touch on the line and stabbed it on to the post.

PSG led through Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting but Nuno da Costa levelled and Anthony Goncalves put the visitors ahead from 20 yards.

Presnel Kimpembe equalized for PSG.

But the capital side needed to beat Strasbourg to wrap up the title with eight games to go. They can seal it if they draw at second-placed Lille next Sunday.

Choupo-Moting had started ahead of 27-goal Ligue 1 top scorer Kylian Mbappe, who was rested but came on in the second half.

Thomas Tuchel’s side, who were knocked out of the Champions League in the last 16 by Manchester United, have the chance to win the double when they face Rennes in the Coupe de France final on Saturday, 27 April.

They have won the cup four seasons in a row.

PSG, who have won five of the past six Ligue 1 titles, had won all previous 15 league home matches this season.
