Paris St-Germain 3-3 Monaco: Leaders held in entertaining encounter

Neymar
Neymar has scored in seven successive games for Paris St-Germain

Neymar scored twice as Ligue 1 leaders Paris St-Germain were made to settle for a point in a six-goal thriller against Monaco at the Parc des Princes.

The Brazilian struck a third-minute opener before goals from Gelson Martins and Wissam Ben Yedder completed a quick six-minute turnaround for the visitors.

Fode Ballo-Toure's own-goal and Neymar's second from the penalty spot then handed PSG a half-time lead.

But Islam Slimani made it 3-3 after 70 minutes to deny the champions victory.

Slimani's goal was eventually awarded after a lengthy video assistant referee review overruled an initial offside verdict.

Kylian Mbappe, who won his side's penalty following a foul by Martins, and Edinson Cavani both squandered injury-time opportunities as PSG chased a winner.

A point leaves Thomas Tuchel's side five points clear of closest challengers Marseille with one game in hand.
