PSG's Choupo-Moting explains his incredible goalline miss

Lebogang Mothiba's Strasbourg claimed a valuable point on the road following a 2-2 draw with Ligue 1 leaders Paris Saint-Germain.

"Unbelievable. Choupo-Moting actually stopped that ball on the line", one BeIN Sports commentator said. I saw the pictures and I'm sorry because the ball was entering the met on Nkunku's shot.

With Kylian Mbappe on the bench and Angel Di Maria, Edinson Cavani and Neymar all injured, Choupo-Moting was the only striker on the pitch and he opened the scoring after 13 minutes from inside the box.

Though an embarrassing moment for him, something tells us it probably won't be too costly.

"Everybody is surprised but he played nine consecutive matches, with the scoring duties".

"He is an excellent back-up player to have but if you start a lot for PSG you need to have confidence and he lacks that", said Tuchel of Choupo-Moting.

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. At first I thought he was going to pass me the ball, then he shot.

The home side could have gone ahead in the 26th minute but Max Gradel's penalty was well saved by Ciprian Tatarusanu in the Nantes goal.

Lille maintained their grip on second spot despite being held to a 1-1 draw by Reims on Sunday afternoon.

Brazilian defender Dante netted the game's wining goal in the 20th minute as Nice moved up to seventh spot, three points adrift of fourth spot.

Tuchel was sent off 12 minutes into the second half for an outburst of anger that followed a risky tackle from Kenny Lalaon Nkunku. Embarrassingly for Choupo-Moting, the ball had not crossed the line.

The France worldwide threatened immediately with a series of dribbles on the right side of the box as PSG accelerated the pace in search of an equaliser.

He created danger on the other side of the area a few minutes later but his effort was stopped by Strasbourg 'keeper Matz Sels.

Daniel Alves then hit the crossbar with a right-footed volley and Kehrer finally snatched the equaliser from a corner in the 82nd minute when he planted a header into the back of the net after being left unmarked.
