Paris St-Germain’s bid to secure the Ligue 1 title was put on hold after a dramatic 3-3 draw with Le Havre at the Parc des Princes.

Le Havre took the lead through Christopher Operi’s 19th-minute strike, but Bradley Barcola levelled for PSG just 10 minutes later. Andre Ayew restored Le Havre’s advantage before halftime, and Abdoulaye Toure extended their lead from the penalty spot in the 61st minute. However, Achraf Hakimi’s 78th-minute goal sparked a late fightback, and Goncalo Ramos’ stoppage-time equaliser ensured a share of the spoils.

Despite introducing Kylian Mbappe off the bench in the second half, PSG struggled to find their rhythm, with the French superstar unable to make a significant impact. The result means PSG remain 12 points clear at the top of Ligue 1, but will have to wait until their next outing to secure the title.

The focus now shifts to the Champions League, where PSG face Borussia Dortmund in the semi-finals, with the first leg taking place on May 9. Can PSG regroup and reach their second Champions League final in three years? The thrilling draw with Le Havre has set up a tantalizing few weeks in Paris.
