Lorient 1-1 PSG: Icardi rescues late point for Pochettino's side

Lorient 1-1 PSG: Mauro Icardi rescues late point for Mauricio Pochettino’s side after Sergio Ramos was SENT OFF in only his second league appearance for his new club

  • Mauro Icardi rescued a late point for Paris Saint-Germain against Lorient 
  • The hosts took a surprise lead just before half time through Thomas Monconduit  
  • Sergio Ramos made his side’s task all the more difficult after being sent off
  • However, Argentine forward Icardi provided an equaliser in additional time 

Mauro Icardi’s stoppage-time strike helped 10-man Paris St Germain salvage a fortunate 1-1 draw at lowly Lorient in a dismal performance by the Ligue 1 leaders on Wednesday.

Mauricio Pochettino’s side, who had Sergio Ramos sent off, have 46 points from 19 games with Nice in second place 13 points behind after a 2-1 comeback win at home against RC Lens.

Third-placed Olympique de Marseille, who have a game in hand, trail Nice on goal difference after being caught cold at the Velodrome in a 1-1 draw against Stade de Reims, Dimitri Payet salvaging a point with a penalty eight minutes into injury time.
