PSG's title celebrations delayed following draw

Paris St Germain's Ligue 1 title celebrations were delayed on Sunday when they dropped their first points at home this season in a 2-2 draw against Racing Strasbourg.

Victory would have given PSG their eighth Ligue 1 title after Lille earlier drew 1-1 at Stade de Reims but Sunday's draw left Thomas Tuchel's side on 81 points from 30 games. Second-placed Lille have 61 points from 31 matches.

Eric Choupo-Moting's early opener was cancelled out by Nuno Da Costa before Anthony Goncalves put the visitors ahead in the 38th minute.

Thilo Kehrer levelled in the 82nd minute but that was too little, too late for PSG, who until Sunday had won all of their 15 league matches at the Parc des Princes this season.

Sevilla coach Joaquin Caparros announced on Sunday that he has chronic leukemia but says the condition is under control and will not prevent him continuing in his job.

The 63-year-old, who took over last month after Pablo Machin was sacked, was speaking after Sevilla's 2-0 victory over Real Valladolid in La Liga.

"I have chronic leukemia," Caparros said in the post-match press conference. "I have caught it early and can live a normal life. I want to enjoy my job and for everyone to stay calm. I've had no treatment and am grateful for the club giving me the opportunity (to continue coaching)."      

Sarri questions 'strange' Chelsea fixture list

Maurizio Sarri has questioned the Premier League's "strange" decision to schedule Chelsea's West Ham clash for Monday, just three days before their Europa League away match against Slavia Prague.

Chelsea, who are battling for a top-four finish, face a pivotal week, hosting West Ham before heading to Prague for Thursday's game.

"I am not able to understand the decision of the Premier League because we have to go to Prague as an English team," he said.

"So I'm not able to understand why we have to play on Monday. It's very strange. I think they could have done more for the English teams in Europe.”
