Behind by two goals early on, Paris Saint-Germain dug deep and earned a late draw with goals from Javier Pastore (43') and Mathieu Bodmer (80').
On the strength of six consecutive wins, in all competitions, Antoine Kombouaré's side travelled to the Parc des Sports d’Annecy and a match against Evian, looking for a place in PSG history. A seventh consecutive victory for Les Rouge et Bleu would match similarly successful runs in the 1883-84 and 1995-96 campaigns.
The home side made an excellent start. Khalifa found Sagbo in the area and released Leroy through one-on-one against Salvatore Sirigu - the former Parisian making no mistake to open the scoring (1-0, 14'). PSG was caught cold and ETG took full advantage. In a challenge on Sagbo, Sylvain Armand was adjudged to have fouled and referee, Mr. Moreira had no hesitation in awarding a penalty. Sagbo made no mistake from the spot (2-0, 20').
Les Parisiens woke up in the final stages of the first half. Kevin Gameiro intercepted a back pass from Tie Bi but Andersen managed to turn the shot behind (39'). The visitors continued to push and Jérémy Ménez picked out Pastore on the edge of the area. The Argentine got the better of two defenders before beating Andersen, and reigniting the game as a contest (2-1, 43').
PSG started the second half the way they finished the first, but neither Gameiro (53', 57'), nor Nenê (54'), nor Ceara (60') could find the equaliser. As the final 15 minutes approached, Kombouaré made a double substitution with the introduction of Bodmer and Mevlut Erding. It was a move that paid dividends just minutes later when Marcos Ceara's corner was flicked on at the front post by the Turkey international and Bodmer was waiting at the back post to finish (2-2, 80').
Les Rouge et Bleu couldn't find a late winner. While the run of victories was brought to an end, the capital club extend their unbeaten run which now dates back to the opening day of the campaign and a run that they will be looking to extend even further on Wednesday against Nice at the Parc des Princes.
