PARIS (AP) — Days after holding runaway league leader Paris Saint-Germain to a draw, Strasbourg was held 2-2 at home by struggling Caen on Sunday.

Strasbourg became only the second side to take points off PSG this season when the sides drew 1-1 on Wednesday.

So resolute in defense against free-scoring PSG, Strasbourg conceded a sloppy equalizer with 10 minutes left when a poor clearance allowed midfielder Saif-Eddine Khaoui time to pick his spot with a rasping drive from 20 meters.

Strasbourg led 2-1 midway through the first half, with defender Pablo Martinez and South Africa forward Lebo Mothiba netting either side of Faycal Fajr's equalizer.


Strasbourg is in eighth place while Caen is in 18th place and the relegation playoff spot.

Later Sunday, second-placed Lille was hosting Reims in the last of only four matches played this weekend.

On Saturday, Rennes beat Dijon 2-0 and last-place Guingamp lost 2-1 at home to Amiens. Both games played were held in the Brittany region.

Friday's eagerly awaited French Riviera derby between Thierry Henry's Monaco and Patrick Vieira's Nice, as well as PSG's home game against Montpellier on Saturday were among games called off because of anti-government protests in Paris and elsewhere following weeks of unrest in the aftermath of a fuel tax hike.
