Folarin Balogun, forward on loan from Arsenal, scored a thrilling equaliser in stoppage time for Reims against Paris St. Germain with ten men. As a result, PSG will now miss the chance to overtake Lens at the top of Ligue 1 by five points. For PSG, Neymar had scored the game's first goal, and Marco Verratti afterwards received a red card.
Reims' streak of victories in all competitions now stands at 14 games thanks to Balogun's equaliser in the 96th minute. The under-21 England international currently has 11 goals this season in Ligue 1, which is more than any other player in Europe's top five divisions his age. Reims, led by 30-year-old Will Still, an Englishman of Belgian descent, played admirably against a PSG starting lineup that included Lionel Messi, Kylian Mbappe, and Neymar for the first time since the World Cup.
PSG has now lost three of its four league games in 2023, and their current form will be troubling with just over two weeks until the first leg of their last-16 Champions League match against Bayern Munich.
