Ligue 1: League Leaders PSG held to a draw by Lyon

League Leaders PSG was held to a draw by Lyon.

Paris Saint-German was held to a draw by Lyon on Sunday evening.

France’s league leaders Paris St-Germain, rescued a point at Lyon by coming back from going behind early on.

PSG has only lost one game in the whole of this season.

Thilo Kehrer’s 69th-minute equalizer gave the visitors hope courtesy of Lucas Paqueta’s seventh-minute goal for the hosts in the first half.

Both Kylian Mbappe and Marquinhos struck the post in the first half, while Lyon goalkeeper Anthony Lopes had to make a fantastic stop.

With an 11-point lead over Nice, PSG is the team to beat.

When Lionel Messi tested positive for Covid-19, he was one of four PSG players obliged to leave the game and remain in Argentina until he returned a negative test result.

Also missing from the action was Neymar, who is expected to be sidelined for at least three weeks due to an ankle injury.

Paqueta’s low, left-footed volley found the back of the net after Bruno Guimaraes’ brilliant long ball was chested down and handled by the Brazilian.

After a goalless first half, Kylian Mbappe’s second-half attempt came from a free-kick as PSG pressed.

Kehrer scored his first goal since February 2020 after a trio of changes by Mauricio Pochettino on 69 minutes, with Edouard Michut’s pass reaching his fellow substitute.
