AS Monaco FC heaped the pressure on leaders Paris Saint-Germain at the top of Ligue 1 after Layvin Kurzawa's goal deep into added time earned a 3-2 win against ten-man Stade de Reims at the Stade Louis II on Friday night.
The victory takes Claudio Ranieri's men two points behind the pacesetters, who travel to Toulouse FC on Sunday, and it looked as if it would be a straightforward evening for Monaco when Valère Germain neatly flicked João Moutinho's corner into the net with his head on eight minutes. Prince Oniangué equalised for the first time with a neat finish eight minutes after the restart but ten minutes later Jérémy Toulalan drove in from the edge of the area to restore the home lead.
Oniangué was on the spot to turn in a free-kick to make it 2-2 and the scoreline looked like staying the same, despite the visitors seeing Aissa Mandi dismissed in the 83rd minute, until Kurzawa struck in the 95th minute to help his side close in on Paris.
