Paris Saint-Germain failed to secure the French Ligue 1 champion title on Sunday as Thiago Silva's own goal handed Sochaux a second-half equaliser and a 1-1 draw.

Edinson Cavani had scored in the 24th minute to raise hopes that Laurent Blanc's side could clinch their second successive Ligue 1 title on their visit to third-from bottom Sochaux, but PSG centerback Silva’s own goal in the 56th minute crushed that ambition.

"We didn't deserve to win this game, we didn't play as (well as we) usually do," PSG president Nasser al Khelaifi said. "We must clinch (the) title at home."

Sochaux's own hopes for staying up next season were boosted by the result.

Dimitar Berbatov's double strike on Saturday helped second-place Monaco crush bottom club Ajaccio 4-1 to keep the title race alive.

PSG, who won the French League Cup by beating Olympique Lyon 2-1 last weekend, have 83 points with three games remaining. Monaco are eight points adrift.
