Saint-Etienne 1 PSG 1: Edinson Cavani produces miss of the season before Mathieu Debuchy own goal rescues point for Ligue 1 leaders

Former Arsenal defender put the ball in his own net in the 92nd minute after Remy Cabella's first-half strike seemed to be enough for the three points

PSG missed out on a chance to secure the Ligue 1 title at the weekend as they could only salvage a 1-1 draw at St Etienne and finished the game with 10 men on Friday.

Remy Cabella’s first-half goal was cancelled out by a Mathieu Debuchy own goal in stoppage time.

Regardless of Monaco’s result on Saturday, PSG will clinch the title if they beat the principality team at home next weekend.

Against a side who showed no fear, Unai Emery’s side, who were without the injured midfielder Marco Verratti, barely threatened as they failed to shoot on target during the opening half.

St Etienne went ahead when Cabella poked the ball home after Debuchys cross was deflected into his path in the 17th minute.

PSG failed to react and the hosts were awarded a penalty after Kimpembe brought down Romain Hamouma in the box on 29 minutes.

Keeper Alphonse Areola, however, dived onto his right to deny Cabella to keep his team afloat.
