Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting produces worst miss in PSG's draw with Strasbourg

The reason as to why it happened is still unknown but PSG striker Eric Choupa-Moting had everyone scratching their heads on Sunday as PSG missed the chance to wrap up the league title after a 2-2 draw to Strasbourg.

Yet somehow Choupo-Moting had managed to not only deny Nkunku a great goal but also hit the post from the goal line, in a blunder unlike any seen before.

PSG made it 2-2 eight minutes from time when Kehrer headed home but despite the late efforts of Mbappe and Alves, the hosts were left frustrated.

We could call this an embarrassing miss (because it was), but really, Choupo-Moting shouldn't have touched the ball at all. "It was necessary because Kylian felt a muscular (problem) over the past three matches".

Victory would have given PSG their eighth Ligue 1 title after Lille earlier drew 1-1 at Stade de Reims but Sunday's draw left Thomas Tuchel's side on 81 points from 30 games.

Strasbourg coach Thierry Laurey opted for a very defensive side that struggled to string passes together and rarely took the ball out of their own half during the first 20 minutes.

The last 12 months have been quite a ride for Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting.

Strasbourg earned a point against the defending Ligue 1 champions which Choupo-Mouting will live to regret for a while.

Choupo-Moting had given the champions-in-waiting the lead after 13 minutes before Nuno Da Costa's leveller.

PSG could not hold onto its lead for long, though, as Strasbourg gradually got into the match to find space between the Parisian lines.

To make matters worse, Choupo-Moting's blocked stopped Nkunku from scoring, especially as it was heading into the back of the net.
