Leipzig Shock PSG with Last-Second Draw in Champions League!

Dominik Szoboszlai converted a penalty in injury time as RB Leipzig held a frustrated Paris Saint-Germain, Dominik Szoboszlai converted a penalty in injury time as RB Leipzig held a frustrated Paris Saint-Germain, who were without the injured Lionel Messi, to a point.

Paris Saint-Germain were held to a 2-2 draw in the Champions League on Wednesday, with Leipzig scoring a late goal to make the game 2-2.

PSG had been cruising to an away win and were 2-1 up with 30 minutes to go.

In the dying seconds, however, Leipzig were awarded a penalty when PSG defender Presnel Kimpembe committed a foul on Christopher Nkunku, leaping into his path as a cross came in. Dominik Szoboszlai then easily converted the spot kick.

“We didn’t start well, but Leipzig did and we had to get back in the game,” PSG midfielder Georginio Wijnaldum told DAZN. “We created second-half chances, but also gave a lot away too.”

“We have to learn from that and control the game better, because we were 2-1 up and should have put our chances away. There is a lot of room for improvement.”

PSG were under pressure from the beginning, as captain Marquinhos had to clear off the line as Silva got in behind the defence and forced Gianluigi Donnarumma into a save.

The hosts kept the pressure up and deservedly took the lead when Silva’s cross was met with a superb diving header by Christopher Nkunku, but PSG earned the next two goals as Wijnaldum flicked one into the net on 21 minutes and then doubled his tally when he nodded Marquinhos’ header over the line and VAR allowed the goal, despite suspicions of offside, to make it 2-1 at the break.

Mbappe should have put the game beyond Leipzig’s reach when he missed two clear opportunities, firing over and then shooting straight at Leipzig goalkeeper Peter Gulacsi early in the second half.

With Messi sidelined for the match, the draw left PSG a point behind new leaders Manchester City and cost the French side first place in Group A.
