Thiago Motta says that Paris Saint-Germain deserved to draw at Saint-Etienne on Sunday, despite playing against 10 men for 30 minutes.

Thiago Motta has gone against the views of manager Laurent Blanc and believes that Paris Saint-Germain deserved a result at Saint-Etienne on Sunday.

Les Verts led the match by two goals before Fabien Lemoine was shown a red card, which led to a PSG fightback with Edinson Cavani and Blaise Matuidi rescuing the champions a 2-2 draw at the Stade Geoffroy-Guichard.

While Blanc felt that his side weren't good enough on the night, Motta disagrees and believes that PSG performed well to earn a point.

"Saint-Etienne played well in the first half and we played well in the second," Motta told the club's official website. "So I think a 2-2 draw is the right result.

"It wasn't easy coming back against a side full of confidence after those first 45 minutes and a side leading 2-0. The team did what they had to do and earned a point tonight. It's good.

"The draw is a fair result for the match tonight."

PSG are next in action on Friday night against Lorient.
