The visitors were struggling to impose themselves on the contest and were unable to muster any chances due to the battling qualities of the Nice defence.
However, PSG came to life when Lucas released the run of Javier Pastore, and the forward maintained his composure to fire a low effort into the bottom corner and hand his side the lead.
The home side rallied on the stroke of half time when Benrahama tried a speculative effort from distance, which hit Mathieu Bodmer in the box. The visitors appealed for offside, but the striker was played on by Luiz and was able to beat Salvatore Sirigu to level the scores. body check tags ::
