Paris Saint-Germain were held to a surprise 1-1 draw by EA Guingamp at the Stade du Roudourou on Saturday.
The result sees Laurent Blanc’s side fail to open up a provisional eight-point lead over title rivals AS Monaco at the top of Ligue 1, instead having to settle for six.
It could have been worse though; PSG fell behind to Mustapha Yatabare’s 84th minute opener, only for Alex to spare their blushes three minutes later (match report via ligue1.com).
Although it finished 1-1 and it is two points dropped by the champions, the result was a positive one based on the balance of play and PSG’s disappointing showing in Brittany.
PSG coach Laurent Blanc was disappointed after the final whistle: "My overriding feeling is that we didn't get what we came here for: the three points," he told PSG TV (in English).
"I think the state of the pitch was a disadvantage because it really doesn't suit our style of play. But we still tried to play good football."
"In the 83rd minute, we conceded another goal from a set piece. At the moment, the only chances our rivals are getting are from set pieces. We have to work on that."
"But I am still happy that we came back and equalised and we didn't give up."
Here are six things we learned from PSG’s surprise 1-1 draw with EA Guingamp.
