Ligue 1 Leaders PSG Manage a Stunning Draw at RC Lens

    Georginio Wijnaldum came to the rescue with a last-gasp goal as Ligue 1 leaders Paris St Germain salvaged a fortunate 1-1 draw at RC Lens on Saturday.

    This match also witnessed Messi floored by a strong tackle and some PSG players stopped playing in the build-up to Seko Fofana’s goal which gave Lens a 62nd-minute lead in northern France.

    The Dutch midfielder headed home two minutes into stoppage time to cancel out Seko Fofana’s second-half opener and put PSG on 42 points from 17 games.

    Mauricio Pochettino’s side, who once again looked severely short of ideas, lead second-placed Olympique de Marseille by 13 points after OM slumped to a 1-0 defeat at home against Stade Brestois earlier on Saturday.

    Lens remained in fifth place with 27 points after missing multiple chances to win before Wijnaldum’s equaliser.

    PSG had the first clear chance when Lionel Messi’s curled shot hit the post in the 19th minute, with Kylian Mbappe on the bench as Pochettino sought to rest the France forward. But it was Lens who controlled, with Jonathan Clauss and Arnaud Kalimiuendo providing chances before the break.

    The hosts were rewarded in the 62nd minute when Fofana scored with a floating strike from just outside the box thanks to an error by Keylor Navas. Pereira Da Costa’s shot hit the post and landed in the arms of PSG goalkeeper Navas seven minutes later as Lens continued to press.
