REIMS, France (AP) — Zlatan Ibrahimovic saved defending champion Paris Saint-Germain from defeat in its French league opener by scoring twice in a 2-2 draw at Reims on Friday.

The Swede opened the scoring in the seventh minute but missed a penalty kick 13 minutes later. Reims midfielder Prince Oniangue equalized from close range in the 22nd before Antoine Devaux gave the hosts the lead in the 34th. Ibrahimovic salvaged a point with a lob from a tight angle in the 63rd.

PSG missed Ezequiel Lavezzi, David Luiz, Maxwell, Blaise Matuidi and Yohan Cabaye, who are building up fitness after playing at the World Cup.
