Rennes 1-1 Paris St-Germain

Paul-Georges Ntep celebrates scoring for Rennes
Ntep's goal ensures that third-placed Rennes remain just a point behind PSG, who are second

Paris St-Germain missed out on the chance to go top of Ligue 1 after they were held to a 1-1 draw at Rennes.

Laurent Blanc's men were well placed at half-time to claim a third win of the season after Zoumana Camara's slid home a shot to give them the lead.

But the home side levelled 10 minutes into the second half thanks to an angled drive from Paul-Georges Ntep.

The result leaves PSG second in the table, a point behind leaders Bordeaux, while Rennes are third.

It was not the best of warm-ups for PSG ahead of Wednesday's trip to Ajax for their Champions League opener.

However, they also lacked luck at times, with Zlatan Ibrahimovic cracking a volley against the crossbar.

Camara's goal - which came from a cross from Gregory van der Wiel - made up for the Swede's near miss, but a defeat would have been harsh on the home side, who were rewarded for their contribution to the game through Ntep's close-range finish.
