Highlights: PSG 2-2 Napoli

By on 24th October 2018

Angel Di Maria scored a stunning equaliser in the 93rd minute to rescue a crucial point for Paris Saint-Germain in a 2-2 draw at home to Napoli in the Champions League.

Victory for Liverpool at home to Red Star Belgrade saw them go top of Group C on six points, whilst Napoli are in second on five points and PSG are in the Europa League spot with four points. The Serbian champions sit bottom with their sole point.

Thomas Tuchel’s side were headed for a defeat which would have left them in a tough position to qualify for the knockout stages, but for Di Maria’s late strike. The two means meet again at the San Paolo Stadium in Naples in a fortnight’s time.

Napoli led 1-0 at the Parc des Princes thanks to Lorenzo Insigne’s strike on half hour, but were pegged back on the hour mark through a Mario Rui own goal after the defender deflected in Thomas Meunier’s cross. The Serie A side looked headed for victory through Dries Mertens’ 77th minute goal before PSG’s Argentine winger stepped up with the goods in the third minute of stoppage time.
