Paris St Germain dropped their first points of the Ligue 1 season on Sunday as Girondins de Bordeaux held the visiting champions to a 2-2 draw and halted the longest winning run in Europe’s top five leagues.

Despite twice holding the lead with goals in either half from Neymar and Kylian Mbappe, PSG were pegged back by an 84th minute equaliser to see their perfect 14-match start to the campaign ended.

The visitors had enjoyed the better of the first half with Angel Di Maria hitting the woodwork and Neymar having a goal chalked off for offside.

Yet by halftime, they only had one goal to show for their dominance, a Neymar strike that was sclaffed home and verified on the VAR for a possible offside decision against Mbappe before being awarded.

Bordeaux, though, came out a different side in the second period and were on level terms after 54 minutes thanks to a goal from Jimmy Briand.

PSG went ahead again after 58 minutes when Mbappe, by now working without Neymar, who had been taken off injured a few moments earlier, hammered home his 12th goal of the season after finishing off a superb counter-attack.

Yet Andreas Cornelius headed an equaliser for the home team with six minutes remaining to snap PSG’s remarkable winning start to the season.

The result, though, did little to change the picture at the top of the league, with runaway leaders PSG sitting atop the table with 43 points from 15 matches, 14 clear of second-placed Montpellier.
