Highlights: Montpellier 3-2 PSG

By on 30th April 2019

Montpellier scored twice in the final 10 minutes to come from behind and beat Ligue 1 champions Paris Saint-Germain 3-2 at the Stade de la Mosson on Tuesday night.

The victory keeps up Michel Der Zakarian’s sides slim hopes of qualifying for European football next season – five points behind St-Etienne with four games to play.

An own goal from Cameroonian defender Ambroise Oyongo on 12 minutes gave PSG the lead in a game they had nothing to play, having already wrapped up the title with five games to play.

Tomas Tuchel largely played his first team, with Neymar starting only his second game since January having only recently returned from a metatarsal injury. Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting was given the starting role up front, whilst youngster Colin Dagba continues to play.

A Presnel Kimpembe own goal gave the hosts an equaliser midway through the first half which they would take into the break. Angel Di Maria would restore the visitors’ lead just after the hour mark.

PSG looked to be headed for the three points which would have given them a chance of finishing on 99 for the season, before they fell apart in the final 10 minutes. First, Andy Delort equalised, and five minutes from time, Souleymane Camera scored the winner.
