PARIS SAINT-GERMAIN could only draw at home to Caen in Ligue 1 this afternoon after conceding an 89th-minute equaliser.

Laurent Blanc’s reigning champions took an early lead through their talisman Zlatan Ibrahimovic when the Swedish striker latched onto a Serge Aurier cross to stab home a kung-fu kick-style volley after just two minutes.

Ezequil Lavezzi doubled their lead on 40 minutes to give them a two-goal cushion at half-time but injuries to Yohan Cabaye, Marquinhos, Serge Aurier and Lucas Moura left the champions to finish the game with nine men, and they wilted in the face of visiting pressure.

Emiliano Sala reduced the arrears with two minutes to play before a stoppage-time free kick from Herve Bazile beat Salvatore Sirigu and snatched a point.
