Paris: Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang came off the bench to inspire Saint-Etienne to a 2-1 victory against Ligue 1 leaders Paris Saint-Germain at the Parc des Princes on Saturday in a day of contrasting fortunes for two of the league's leading strikers.
Aubameyang, who was deemed only fit enough for a place among the substitutes, induced Mamadou Sakho to steer beyond his own keeper 10 minutes into the second half before adding a goal of his own on 73 minutes, as Zlatan Ibrahimovic saw red for a rash challenge on goalkeeper Stephane Ruffier.
"It's a great achievement, thanks to all the team. It's pleasing to beat this big team here. The coach put me on, he knew that I would be fresh. I'm a competitor, I like to start but it was well played on his part," said a delighted Aubameyang, who increased his league tally to seven goals.
