Mbappe: I Missed Much More Than Choupo-Moting This Season

Eric Choupo Moting saved a certain goal for his own team

Having put the hosts in front, the Cameroon global incredibly contrived to stop Christopher Nkunku's goal-bound effort at 1-1, and was unable to even turn to the ball into the net.

Strasbourg went on to take the lead before a late PSG goal rescued a draw for the hosts who will have to wait another week to be crowned champions.

Victory for the reigning champions would have seen them retain their Ligue 1 crown on Sunday night, after second-placed Lille' 1-1 draw at Reims earlier in the day.

Choupo-Moting, who scored the opener for PSG, was replaced by Mbappe on the hour mark.

Choupo-Moting was starting his latest match in the place of superstar Kylian Mbappe, and the World Cup victor reached out to his red-faced teammate following the astonishing miss.

Though he's played regularly enough in Paris, the 30-year-old is very much back-up to the likes of Kylian Mbappe, Neymar and Edinson Cavani.

To make matters worse, Choupo-Moting's block stopped Nkunku from scoring, especially as it was heading into the back of the net.

"He shot, I thought that the defender was maybe going to take the ball and, after, I hesitated to take the ball, I asked myself if I was offside and everything went very quickly".

"At first, I thought that Christopher might pass to me", he said.

But Nuno da Costa equalized for Strasbourg in the 26th minute before Thierry Laurey's side went into half-time with the lead through Anthony Gonçalves.

The French club were forced to put their Ligue 1 title celebrations on hold after being held to a 2-2 draw at home against Strasbourg.

PSG just need one point in next Sunday's head-to-head visit to Lille for their sixth league title over the past seven seasons.

He was replaced by Mbappe after 60 minutes with his side a goal behind and chasing the game.
