PSG stunned by late Caen rally

Paris, France ( - PSG was held to a 2-2 draw at the Parc des Princes on Saturday as Caen scored twice in the final two minutes to snatch an unlikely point.

PSG had the chance to take over the top spot in Ligue 1 with a win on Saturday, and they looked to be a good bet to do just that after goals from Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Ezequiel Lavezzi in the opening 40 minutes.

Caen managed to pull a goal back in the 89th through Emiliano Sala, but the real stunner came in stoppage time when Herve Bazile fired home a free kick from 20 yards to deny the hosts all three points.

The result leaves PSG one point back of leaders Lyon, which has a great chance to go four points clear with a win at Lorient on Sunday.

Things started well for PSG and the hosts were in front inside of two minutes as Serge Aurier's right-wing cross was met by a volley from Ibrahimovic that redirected the ball past goalkeeper Remy Vercoutre.

PSG made it 2-0 five minutes before the break when Lucas Moura danced through the middle of the Caen defense before laying off a ball for Lavezzi to dispatch inside the far post.

But things started to take a turn for the worse for PSG as injuries forced Yohan Cabaye and Marquinhos from the game before Aurier also left injured after PSG had already made its three substitutions, leaving the team with 10 men.

Lucas also had to depart with an injury problem and PSG was left to finish the game with nine men.

Caen took advantage by throwing players forward and Sala gave his team hope in the 89th when he scored from close range on the rebound.

Bazile then stunned the home fans in stoppage time after Nicolas Benezet won a free kick 20 yards from goal that allowed Bazile to curl home a well-placed shot past goalkeeper Salvatore Sirigu.

Evian moved to within a point of safety on Saturday with a 2-0 win at Lens thanks to a first-half brace from Mathieu Duhamel, while Lens is five points from climbing out of the bottom three.

Bastia got goals from Giovanni Sio and Floyd Ayite in a 2-0 victory at Nantes, Aleksandar Pesic struck the winning goal for Toulouse in the 84th minute of a 2-1 win over Rennes, Lille and Nice battled to a 0-0 draw and Monaco's match with Montpellier was postponed due to heavy rain.
