Strasbourg stun PSG in a 2-1 victory in week 16 of the Ligue 1 encounter at the Stade de la Meinau on Saturday evening.

Strasbourg have taken the lead against PSG through Nuno Da Costa was left unmarked from a free-kick after the visitors' defence stepped up and failed to catch him offside1-0.

Kylian Mbappe pounced for an equaliser in the 42nd minute, the teenage striker meeting a driven cross from the left by Adrien Rabiot at the near post and giving Strasbourg goalkeeper Bingourou Kamara no chance.

But Strasbourg restored their lead in the 65th minute when Stephane Bahoken burst through the middle to beat Alphonse Areola with a thumping strike high into the net.

Home shot-stopper Kamara had to be replaced due to injury with 20 minutes remaining, as Alexandre Oukidja came on in his place, and moments later the league's leading scorer Edinson Cavani stepped off the bench as PSG chased an equaliser.

Pressure was intensely applied to the Strasbourg goal, with nine minutes of stoppage time giving them even greater hope of a leveller.

But Neymar was booked as frustration in the PSG ranks grew, with Strasbourg clinching a stunning win.

Paris Saint-Germain see 25-match unbeaten run end.
