PSG player inexplicably robs his own teammate of a goal

Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting sitter costs Paris St-Germain early title PSG must wait for title after mother of all misses

Paris St-Germain's Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting is making headlines after fluffing a sitter that is being labelled the worst miss in footballing history.

Choupo-Moting gave them an early lead with his third Ligue 1 goal, but later in the first half he somehow succeeded in turning a net-bound Christopher Nkunku shot onto the post while standing on the line.

With Neymar and Edinson Cavani out of the match through injury and Kylian Mbappe rested on the bench, the Cameroon worldwide - who joined from Stoke in 2018 - was handed a rare start.

As you can see from the clip below, PSG star Kylian Mbappe was left in disbelief of the play.

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.

However, that was not enough for them to bag full points, as Tristan Dingome teed up Remi Oudin's goal 12 minutes from time.

Marina Mabrey for the Irish led the charge, nailing three of four three point shots to bring Notre dame back to a 74-74 tie. She made the second, despite trying to miss. "I just knew that if I fouled her, the worst that could happen was overtime".

The draw left PSG 20 points clear at the top of Ligue 1 with eight matches to play and a game in hand over second-placed Lille.

Substitute Thilo Kehrer headed in an 82nd-minute equaliser but Strasbourg spoiled the party plans in the French capital, picking up an unexpected point to keep the champions-elect waiting.

Eric Choupo-Moting's early opener was cancelled out by Nuno Da Costa before Anthony Goncalves put the visitors ahead in the 38th minute.

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.

Tuchel eventually sent Mbappe on the pitch to take Choupo-Moting's place and the France striker had an immediate impact, unsettling the Strasbourg defence with his devastating runs.

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