Paris St-Germain missed the chance to go top of Ligue 1 after being held to a goalless draw by Montpellier.

Laurent Blanc's side moved level on points with leaders Marseille, who lead their rivals on goal difference and play Lille on Sunday.

PSG lacked inspiration and creativity against a Montpellier side who did not manage a single shot in the first half.

The closest PSG came to a goal was a Thiago Silva header being cleared off the goalline by Anthony Mounier.
