Monaco 2-2 Reims

Monaco
Monaco have 51 points in Ligue 1 and will not be able to catch PSG if they win one of their final eight games

Monaco dropped points at home to Reims on Friday to leave Paris St-Germain one win away from winning a fourth straight Ligue 1 title.

Brazilian striker Vagner Love fired Monaco ahead, before Gaetan Charbonnier turned in a cross to equalise.

Love restored Monaco's lead when he pounced on an error but Diego's late finish earned Reims a point.

PSG, who are 22 points ahead of second-place Monaco, are at bottom-club Troyes on Sunday.

If Laurent Blanc's side win they will move 25 points clear with just 24 left to play for in the remaining eight games.
