Kurzawa keeps Monaco in touch with leaders PSG
Paris: A last-gasp winner from defender Layvin Kurzawa lifted Monaco to a 3-2 victory over Reims and to within two points of French league leaders Paris Saint-Germain on Friday night.

With five minutes stoppage time on the clock, Kurzawa grabbed the all-important goal which secured the three points which had twice appeared to have slipped form Monaco`s grasp.

Valere Germain had headed them ahead in the eighth minute, only for Congolese midfielder Prince Oniague to level in the 53rd.

And Onziague was on hand again to level a second time in the 71st minute after Jeremy Toulalan had struck only his second career goal to put Monaco in front again on 63 minutes.

Toulalan`s only previous league goal came back in 2004 when he was playing for Nantes against Strasbourg.

Paris Saint-Germain, fresh from their midweek Champions League exploits in the 4-0 win over Germany`s Bayer Leverkusen, can restore their five-point advantage on Saturday night when they travel to Toulouse.
