Cavani scores equalizer as PSG drops points at Reims

PARIS (AP) Edinson Cavani scored his fifth goal in six French league matches this season as Paris Saint-Germain stuttered again and rallied to secure a 1-1 draw at Reims on Saturday.

The defending champion remains unbeaten and is one point above second-placed Rennes in the standings but shared the points for the second consecutive week following a 2-2 draw with Bordeaux.

Cavani, who came off the bench for the last 25 minutes, leveled in the 84th minute from Javier Pastore's subtle pass almost immediately after forward Jordan Siebatcheu put the hosts ahead.
