Tensions boiled over in the tunnel after PSG’s draw with Rennes – with red-carded defender Presnel Kimpembe at the heart of it – as Pochettino’s men lost more ground in the title race after being held to a 1-1 draw by Bruno Genesio‘s European chasers.
A controversial penalty for a foul on Layvin Kurzawa presented Neymar with the opportunity to open the scoring from the spot – a chance which he took, despite the reaches of Alfred Gomis – but Serhou Guirassy headed home a late equaliser to dent PSG’s hopes of a fourth successive crown.
Despite breaking the 80-goal barrier with Neymar’s penalty, PSG are now three points adrift of leaders Lille with two games remaining, and should Pochettino’s side fail to get the better of Reims, the title could be Lille’s if they manage to better PSG’s result against Saint-Etienne.
A taxing Coupe de France semi-final against Montpellier HSC – which PSG eventually won on penalties – was hardly a welcome distraction for Pochettino, who will now be relying on a cup triumph in next week’s final against Monaco to save his bacon as Lille march towards the Ligue 1 crown.
Nevertheless, PSG have taken 13 points from the last 15 on offer in Ligue 1, but they have failed to keep a clean sheet in any of their last eight league outings – a statistic which could have Reims believing in the prospect of a shock with no pressure on their shoulders.
Ligue 1’s resident draw specialists Reims would certainly have accepted such a result against Champions League-chasing Monaco last time out, but a swift counter-attack ended with Wissam Ben Yedder teeing up Eliot Matazo for his first Monegasques goal at 19 years of age.
Benjamin Lecomte did have to be called into action to preserve Monaco’s lead, but Reims ultimately fell short for the sixth week running as David Guion hopes to somehow avoid a seventh game without victory at the home of the champions.
