Paris Saint-Germain draw 4-4 with Amiens – The Canberra Times 


French Ligue 1 leaders Paris Saint-Germain’s defence has collapsed in a 4-4 draw at struggling Amiens. Error-strewn PSG trailed 3-0 and then recovered to lead 4-3 before conceding an injury-time equaliser to Serhou Guirassy in his second goal of Sunday’s game. It was the first time PSG have conceded three goals in the first half of a league game since February 2012. They next face Borussia Dortmund, who has netted 24 goals in the past six games, in the European Champions League on Tuesday. PSG had got away with making mistakes in their previous three games, but trailed 3-0 within 40 minutes against a side fighting relegation in 19th place. Amiens could have had more first-half goals, before Ander Herrera netted for PSG just before the break. Guirassy opened the scoring after five minutes and combined brilliantly with Gael Kakuta for Kakuta’s stunning strike into the top corner in the 29th. PSG failed to stop forward Fousseni Diabate running through from the halfway line and making it 3-0. But Herrera thumped home from Julian Draxler’s corner to give PSG some hope at the break. Moments after Kakuta missed a chance to make it 4-1, 17-year-old midfielder Tanguy Kouassi twice rose superbly to head in two corners from Angel Di Maria for 3-3. Amiens could not cope and striker Mauro Icardi tapped home from left back Juan Bernat’s cross to put PSG ahead in the 74th. After Edinson Cavani missed a chance for a fifth PSG goal – and his 200th for the club – Amiens broke up field and Guirassy turned in a cross from the right. In Saturday’s late games, Bordeaux are hosting Dijon and Nantes face Metz. Australian Associated Press
