Atletico Madrid recover from two goals down before losing 3-2 to Paris Saint-Germain in a lively International Champions Cup contest.

Paris Saint-Germain recovered late on to snatch a 3-2 win in their International Champions Cup clash against Atletico Madrid in Singapore on Monday afternoon.

Strikes from Christopher Nkunku and Moussa Diaby had put PSG in control with less than a quarter of the game left to play, only for Atleti to hit back with two of their own.

A last-gasp goal from Virgiliu Postolachi earned the French champions victory at the National Stadium, though, leaving them with four points from their three fixtures in the friendly competition, while last season's La Liga runners-up have one point from one game fewer.

Angel Di Maria and Kevin Gameiro exchanged shots in the early stages, neither doing enough to trouble Antonio Adan or Kevin Trapp respectively.

With a little over half an hour played PSG bagged their first of the contest, though, as Nkunku tucked the ball over the line from close range after a deflected shot landed in his path.

If not for a Kevin Rimane clearance off the line the match would have been all square at the break, but it was the Parisians who would score the game's second goal to give themselves some breathing space.

Tim Weah twice threatened to score without actually doing so, but Diaby had better luck as he followed up his earlier shot against the bar with a left-footed finish into the bottom corner.

It was game on again with 15 minutes left to play in the Far East when Victor Mollejo scrambled the ball over the line after PSG failed to clear a corner.

Antoine Bernede then sent the ball into his own net as he attempted to block a cross towards the front post, but PSG would regain their lead through an impressive Postolachi strike in added time - the youngster turning on the edge of the box and curling the ball into the top corner.
