Paris St-Germain 1-1 Monaco

Monaco celebrate Anthony Martial's equaliser
Monaco's teenage substitute Anthony Martial celebrates his first goal of the season

French champions Paris St-Germain were restricted to their sixth draw in nine Ligue 1 games as Monaco snatched a late equaliser at the Parc Des Princes.

Brazil winger Lucas Moura put them ahead when he lashed Jean-Christophe Bahebeck's low cross into the away net.

But slack defending allowed Monaco substitute Anthony Martial to stab in from close range in injury-time.

The draw moves PSG into third, seven points adrift of leaders Marseille, with Monaco down in 13th.

Last season's runners-up Monaco have struggled after a summer of transition which saw them curb their previously lavish spending and allow star players Radamel Falcao and James Rodriguez to leave for Manchester United and Real Madrid respectively.

Nevertheless, they more than held their own against a PSG side which beat Spanish leaders Barcelona 3-2 in the Champions League on Tuesday.

Laurent Blanc's men, without injured talisman Zlatan Ibrahimovic, seemed sluggish against the principality side following the exertions of that match, but appeared set to take all three points when an unmarked Moura converted at the far post.

However, 18-year-old Martial took advantage of a goalmouth melee to earn Monaco's seventh point in their last four Ligue 1 games.
