With the score at 1-1, Choupo-Moting's teammate Christopher Nkunku had produced a wonderful piece of skill to chip Strasbourg goalkeeper Matz Sels and his shot looked to be rolling harmlessly over the line.

The mind-boggling miss wound up costing PSG the game, having to settle for a 2-2 draw against Strasbourg, which represents the first time this season the Parisian heavyweights gave up points at their home stadium. Will they come back in the second half to seal yet another title?

As you can see from the clip below, PSG star Kylian Mbappe was left in disbelief of the play.

With Neymar and Edinson Cavani out of the match through injury and Kylian Mbappe rested on the bench, the Cameroon worldwide - who joined from Stoke in 2018 - was handed a rare start.

Moting, who actually opened the scoring for Paris Saint-Germain, believe it or not, wasn't the only player in a state of shock after his, quite frankly, abysmal effort in the 27th minute.

"I wanted to go to the ball, put it in the net... but it went very fast, it may not be easy to understand but it goes very fast".

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.

PSG could have sealed another title in front of their fans should they have got maximum points against the visitors.

Choupo-Moting had given the champions-in-waiting the lead after 13 minutes before Nuno Da Costa's leveller.

Although PSG dropped points, it will matter little in the long run as they are 20 points clear of their nearest rival in the league.

Asked about his miss post-match, Choupo-Moting said: "Even for me it's hard to explain".

The home side could have gone ahead in the 26th minute but Max Gradel's penalty was well saved by Ciprian Tatarusanu in the Nantes goal.
