    CAEN: Monaco suffered a fifth Ligue 1 away match without a win on Friday (Saturday in Manila) when a last-minute goal from Christian Kouakou allowed Caen to snatch a 2-2 draw.

    Monaco remain in second spot, a huge 22 points behind defending champions Paris Saint-Germain while Caen are third, eight points further back.

    All four goals came in the second half with Thomas Lemar putting Monaco ahead on the 56th minute mark with a sweetly-struck direct free-kick.

    Julien Feret levelled after 64 minutes with a penalty awarded when Brazilian defender Wallace was punished for a hand ball.

    Four minutes later, Monaco were back in front when Alaeddine Yahia put through his own goal as he struggled to clear a cross from Bernardo Silva.

    Ivory Coast’s Kouakou then ensured a share of the spoils with an acrobatic strike from a last-minute corner.
