Neymar’s brace not enough as Monaco hold PSG in Ligue 1

Neymar PSG's four-man attack is working

Neymar fired home from close range after being set up by Marco Verratti's through-ball in the third minute to get the hosts off to a ideal start.

It was just the second time PSG have dropped points at home this season - after a shock 2-0 defeat by Reims in September - but the draw represented a positive start for former Spain coach Moreno, who replaced Leonardo Jardim at the end of December.

The Brazilian struck a third-minute opener before goals from Gelson Martins and Wissam Ben Yedder completed a quick six-minute turnaround for the visitors.

The hosts equalised when Neymar collected a pass from Angel Di Maria and curling a shot which deflected off defender Fode Ballo-Toure for an own-goal in the 24th.

"It was a great game".

"If we had played at our best we would have taken the three points".

Monaco, however, reacted swiftly.

If Monaco win the rescheduled match, they will climb to fourth and inject an air of intrigue into the quest for the Ligue 1 crown which has been monopolised by PSG since Monaco's success in 2017.

The referee disallowed the goal for offside, but then awarded it after a video review because Marquinhos' intervention effectively played Slimani back onside.

Monaco hit back nearly immediately as Cesc Fabregas threaded a neat ball through for Ben Yedder and although he was chopped down by Keylor Navas, the rebound rolled into the path of Martins who tapped into an empty net.

They levelled 12 minutes later, however, as Ballo-Toure deflected Neymar's attempt into his own goal.

"What do you think I'm going to say?"

Neymar was at it again four minutes before the break when he sent Benjamin Lecomte the wrong way to convert a penalty after Kylian Mbappe had been tripped by Martins.

But Islam Slimani made it 3-3 after 70 minutes to deny the champions victory.

Elsewhere, Lille coach Christophe Galtier was fuming at his team after they lost 1-0 at Dijon and were left in fifth place on 31 points. They'll sit on the bench, period.
