Ligue 1 leaders PSG needed a last gasp strike from Georginio Wijnaldum to rescue a point away to Lens on Saturday night.

Scorers: Fofana 62′; Wijnaldum 90+2′

With Kylian Mbappé dropped through fatigue, his side toiled greatly in his absence and deservedly fell behind shortly after the hour mark, with PSG angered that it came at a time when Lionel Messi was down injured.

As the Argentine lay prone, Seko Fofana picked up the ball from range and fired off a speculative effort which Keylor Navas fumbled into his own net.

Lens came close to doubling their advantage, only to be denied by the post and that miss became crucial when Mbappé was freed from the bench in the closing stages to supply a perfect delivery for Wijnaldum to rescue a point.

Despite the draw, PSG move 13 points clear at the top, while Lens stay fifth.
