French Ligue 1: PSG Suffer Shock Defeat As Champions Monaco Close Gap On Leaders

Leaders Paris Saint Germain (PSG) suffered a surprising 2-1 defeat at the hands of their hosts Racing Strasbourg during a league clash on Saturday evening.

Young French international striker, Kylian Mbappe, scored with three first half minutes remaining to cancel out Cape Verdean international Nuno Da Costa’s opener before Stephane Baroken netted in the second half to give his side an unlikely three points.

The shocking win for Strasbourg means that they are the first team to beat moneybags PSG in all competitions this season.

Champions AS Monaco took full advantage of PSG’s slip up to close the gap on their rivals to 9 points following their 1-0 win over Angers courtesy Radamel Falcao’s 2nd minute strike.
