Monaco miss out on the chance to go top of Ligue 1 after conceding a 92nd-minute equaliser in Friday night's 1-1 draw with Montpellier HSC.

Monaco have missed out on the chance to go top of Ligue 1 after conceding a 92nd-minute equaliser in Friday night's 1-1 draw with Montpellier HSC.

Following a midweek 3-0 routing at the hands of Porto in the Champions League, the French champions began the game cautiously and timidly.

Indeed, the hosts gave away possession clumsily in the ninth minute, which saw Stephane Sessegnon well placed to fire home following a cutback into the box, but the ex-Paris Saint-Germain man blasted wide.

Ten minutes later, Pedro Mendes muscled his way into a shooting position and let rip, only for Monaco goalkeeper Danijel Subasic to charge his effort down.

Although the visitors kept a clean sheet against PSG last week, they were not able to repeat the feat against the principality side, with Radamel Falcao charging into the box to turn home Rony Lopes's low cross.

Montpellier toiled against their opponents and, save for a few half-chances, did not seem to have enough to trouble Monaco.

Two minutes into added time, however, substitute Kevin Berigaud headed down a Vitorino Hilton cross for Souleymane Camara to past Subasic and snatch a point at the death.

The result means that Monaco sit second in Ligue 1 on 19 points, level with PSG but with an inferior goal difference and having played a game more, while Montpellier climb into 10th place.
