Paris Saint Germain 1-1 Lyon

Samuel Umtiti
Samuel Umtiti scored his first goal of the season to help Lyon rescue a point against Paris St-Germain

Samuel Umtiti scored a late equaliser to earn Lyon a point against a lacklustre Paris St-Germain.

Laurent Blanc's side looked on course for victory when Edinson Cavani scored his fifth goal in eight matches with a header from Lucas Digne's precise cross.

But the champions failed build momentum and Zlatan Ibrahimovic was largely anonymous.

Lyon got a deserved equaliser when Clinton Njie teed up Umtiti to score.

Ibrahimovic has now gone three matches without scoring and PSG have slipped three points behind early leaders Marseille after their fourth draw in six matches.

The hosts were hanging on in the closing stages and Lyon could have won it but midfielder Corentin Tolisso scooped the ball over from close range.

Thiago Motta, who suffered broken nose after being headbutted by Bastia striker Brandao, started on the bench.

Motta's replacement, Yohan Cabaye, missed an early chance before Cavani rose to powerfully head in Digne's cross for his second goal in as many games after scoring in the 1-1 draw with Ajax on Wednesday.

Lyon came close to equalising when former Portsmouth midfielder Arnold Mvuemba struck the bar with a fine free-kick.

Goalkeeper Anthony Lopes saved late efforts from Motta and Ibrahimovic as PSG pushed for a second goal.

But the visitors struck when they won a corner and Njie found Umtiti, whose shot from the edge of the box deflected past Salvatore Sirigu.
