PARIS (AP) — Title challenger Monaco missed the chance to close the gap on league leader Paris Saint-Germain after drawing 1-1 away to draw specialists Montpellier on Friday.

Teen striker M'Baye Niang, who is on loan from AC Milan, earned a point for Montpellier with a goal in the 68th minute, shortly after left back Layvin Kurzawa had given Monaco the lead with his second goal in four games.

Monaco is two points behind defending champion Paris Saint-Germain, which has a game in hand and plays away to Corsican side Ajaccio on Saturday, while Montpellier's 12th draw from 20 games leaves it hovering one place above the relegation zone in 17th.

Lille can overtake Monaco and move into outright second place if it beats Reims at home on Sunday.
