- Slimani scored a decisive goal against the current champions of France
- Three other Foxes were in Football League action over the weekend

Slimani, currently on loan from the Foxes, pounced on a deflected effort from Gelson Martins to help his side claim a point from the thrilling encounter at Parc des Princes.

Brazil international Neymar gave PSG the lead after just three minutes before Martins levelled matters and Wissam Ben Yedder put Monaco in front.

However, a Fodé Ballo-Touré own goal and a penalty from Neymar handed Thomas Tuchel’s men a 3-2 lead heading into the interval.

With 65 minutes on the clock, Slimani was introduced, and the Algeria international found the back of the net five minutes later.

Midfielder Adrien Silva, meanwhile, was brought on with five minutes to play to help see out the draw against the eight-time Ligue 1 champions.

Islam Slimani fires beyond Keylor Navas to score his seventh goal for AS Monaco.

Also in Ligue 1 action was Fousseni Diabaté, who played just over 20 minutes for Amiens in a 2-1 reverse to Montpellier.

At Stade de la Licorne, Bakaye Dibassy struck for Diabaté’s side after just 14 minutes, but Gaëtan Laborde and Andy Delort found the back of the net for Montpellier after the break.

On Saturday, back in England, a 3-1 victory for Daniel Iversen’s Rotherham United saw them move top of the Sky Bet League 1 standings after 25 games.

A Kyle Vassell double and Richard Wood’s effort on the stroke of half-time saw the Millers capitalise on Sunderland’s 4-0 win against Wycombe Wanderers, who previously sat top of the table.

Denmark youth international goalkeeper Iversen has now played 28 times in all competitions for Rotherham this season.

Another City loanee in Football League action over the weekend was striker Ryan Loft, who came off the bench to make his 30th appearance in all competitions for Carlisle United.

Sam Hughes has now made 10 appearances in all competitions for Salford.

However, Loft couldn’t prevent the Devon side from emerging from the clash with all three League 2 points as Luke Jephcott’s brace and a Ryan Hardie strike sealed a 3-0 win for the visiting side.

In the same division, Sam Hughes played from start to finish in Salford City’s narrow loss to play-off chasing Northampton Town.

On Hughes’ ninth appearance for the Ammies, Jack Bladwin gave the hosts the lead on 20 minutes, but goals either side of half-time from Sam Hoskins and Andy Williams handed Northampton a 2-1 victory.

Finally, over in Belgium, young defender Kamal Sowah played just over 70 minutes as OH Leuven secured a vital 3-2 Proximus League victory over Royale Union Saint-Gilloise.

Thomas Henry and Mathieu Maertens had initially given Leuven a 2-0 lead, only for the hosts to hit back through Serge Tabekou and Pietro Perdichizzi.

However, Leuven continued to threaten and capitalised on a late counter-attack, as Jérémy Perbet fired in in injury time to win it for the visiting side.
