PSG's Choupo-Moting with the greatest miss of all time?

May JohnsonApr 11, 2019

The score was 2-1 at the time and the game ended 2-2.

The former Stoke City player was awarded a rare start by head coach Thomas Tuchel who opted to rest wonderkid Kylian Mbappe.

The youngster's effort appeared goalbound until the onrushing Choupo-Moting somehow, needlessly, stopped it on the line and failed to turn it home, denying his side a second.

The champions-elect were much more direct with Mbappe's pace and a mazy run earned PSG a corner, from which Alves was unlucky to see his volley strike the crossbar.

But they didn't need the 27-goal striker to open the scoring, with summer signing Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting opening the scoring just after the 10-minute mark after a inch-perfect cross from Colin Dagba.

"I wanted to go to the ball, put it in the net... but it went very fast, it may not be easy to understand but it goes very fast".

We just linked for the first time in years and said we were gonna do a new song this summer cause it had been too long. The event, which is being pulled together in less than week, is a huge undertaking.

After Lille's draw at Reims earlier in the day, PSG would have wrapped up a sixth league trophy in seven seasons with a win but instead needed a late equalizer from Thilo Kehrer to avoid an embarrassing loss. I touched the ball, it hit the post and it is a shame as I think that Christopher's was going in anyway.

PSG could have sealed another title in front of their fans should they have got maximum points against the visitors.

Tuchel was dismissed 12 minutes into the second half for an outburst of anger that followed a unsafe tackle from Kenny Lala on Nkunku.

Tuchel was then sent to the stands on 58 minutes for verbally challenging the referee, with Mbappe and Julian Draxler entering the fray shortly after to try and salvage the game.

Lille are more concerned with holding off the teams below them as they look to secure second place, which provides automatic qualification for next season's Champions League group stage.
