Ligue 1: Promoted Strasbourg Ends Paris Saint Germain Unbeaten Record

0 439

Despite one of the smallest budgets in the top flight, promoted Strasbourg produced the biggest upset in the French league so far by beating Paris Saint-Germain 2-1 on Saturday.

Nuno da Costa headed the hosts, who move up to 14th, into the lead.

Kylian Mbappe, back in the starting line-up after being dropped to the bench in midweek, equalised from Adrien Rabiot’s pass.

Strasbourg snatched the decisive goal through Bahoken, and the home side, who went through bankruptcy only six years ago and were playing in the third tier as recently as 2016, held on for a famous victory that lifts them to 14th.

The northeastern side had only two chances and converted both while PSG wasted a lot in the second half after a poor start.

Strasbourg defended relentlessly during nine minutes of stoppage time, and became the first promoted team to beat PSG since Reims in 2013.
