Ligue 1: PSG narrowly snatches a draw against Rennes, Monaco returns to the podium

Unable to find the key against Rennes at the Parc des Princes, PSG avoided the worst by snatching a draw in stoppage time (1-1), Sunday February 25 during the 23rd day of L1, while Monaco, winner of Lens at Bollaert after a match with a crazy scenario (3-2), got back on the podium.

Dominant but uninspired in attack, the Parisians broke their teeth against the Rennes wall but a penalty at the last minute from Gonçalo Ramos (90th 7) saved them from a very bad situation.

Surprised by an exceptional goal from Amine Gouiri in the first period and without success in front of an impassable Steve Mandanda in his cage, Paris struggled and had to draw on its mental resources to collect a small point, ten days before the round of 16 second leg. Champions League on the pitch of Real Sociedad.

Before the deliverance coming from the feet of Ramos, Luis Enrique, undoubtedly annoyed by the helplessness of his troops, had even dared to replace star Kylian Mbappé in the 65th minute. This result is bad but it does not change much in Paris' domination in the championship since the players from the capital are eleven lengths ahead of Brest (2nd).

In the other shock of the weekend, Monaco went through all the emotions but ended up winning in Lens after a very spectacular game to return to the podium (3rd).

Long pushed around, after having quickly led 2-0, and unfortunate, like the missed penalty from Folarin Balogun stopped by Brice Samba, the Monegasques still managed to win thanks to a goal scored in stoppage time. game by the Japanese Takumi Minamino, author of a double.

Three days after the elimination in the Europa League play-offs in Fribourg, Lens (6th) suffered a sharp halt in the race for Europe and saw its unbeaten streak come to an abrupt end after four matches without defeat.

For Nice, which leaves the top three (4th) with a sad draw conceded against the red lantern Clermont (0-0), the gloomy period continues. The Aiglons are doing very well since Clermont striker Shamar Nicholson missed a penalty in the first period. Victorious only once in its last six matches, the Gym is seriously slipping.

Bad afternoon also for Lille (5th), corrected in Toulouse (3-1). The Toulouse people did not appear at all blunted or even psychologically dejected despite the great outburst of energy deployed in vain three days earlier in the second leg of the Europa League play-off against Benfica Lisbon (0-0). Lille, who could have reached the podium if successful, lost big at the Stadium.

A little further down the rankings, Reims (8th), despite being outnumbered following the exclusion of Thomas Foket (66th), raised its head against Le Havre (2-1) after four games without a win, with a penalty from Mohamed Daramy in added time (90th 6).
