PSG striker Choupo-Moting apologises after Ligue 1 title-postponing miss

Posted April 11, 2019

Paris St-Germain's Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting is making headlines after fluffing a sitter that is being labelled the worst miss in footballing history.

PSG are on 81 points from 30 games and a draw against second-placed Lille next Sunday will crown them Ligue 1 champions.

PSG coach Thomas Tuchel chose to leave Mbappe on the bench until the 59th minute, a surprising decision especially after the league's top scorer found the net in his seven previous league matches, and in the absence of injured forwards Angel Di Maria, Neymar and Edinson Cavani.

Strasbourg quickly went 2-1 up and Thomas Tuchel's men required a late headed equaliser from Thilo Kehrer to save a point - after the German coach had been dismissed for arguing with referee Thomas Leonard.

With the score tied at 1-1, Choupo-Moting stepped onto the end of a chip over Strasbourg goalkeeper Christopher Nkunku.

As you can see from the clip below, PSG star Kylian Mbappe was left in disbelief of the play. At first I thought he was going to pass me the ball, then he shot.

To make matters worse, Choupo-Moting's block stopped Nkunku from scoring, especially as it was heading into the back of the net.

Lille are more concerned with holding off the teams below them as they look to secure second place, which provides automatic qualification for next season's Champions League group stage.

Eric Choupo-Moting's early opener was cancelled out by Nuno Da Costa before Anthony Goncalves put the visitors ahead in the 38th minute.

Fast forward to Sunday and the French club had been widely expected to be basking in the glory of its sixth Ligue 1 title in seven seasons.

PSG now have the chance to seal the Ligue 1 title away at rivals Lille next weekend where they will clinch by avoiding defeat.

He was replaced by Mbappe after 60 minutes with his side a goal behind and chasing the game.
