An added-time goal from Angel Di Maria gave Paris Saint-Germain a vital 2-2 draw against Napoli on Wednesday in the Champions League group stage. The Parisians twice trailed by a goal but managed to battle back in the dying moments for a draw that tastes more like a victory. 

The draw, though not the expected victory, prevents the team from falling too far behind in Group C, and allows the club to control its destiny when it comes to advancing to the knockout stage.

And though the game ended well for Thomas Tuchel's team, it did not start that way. Just a half an hour in, Lorenzo Insigne scored a lovely lobbed shot to make it 1-0:

PSG battled back and got a fortunate own goal just after the hour mark, but that lead was short lived. In the 77th minute, Dries Mertens scored from close for the advantage:

But then, on the counter in added time, the ball fell to Di Maria, who went on to do this:

A wild golazo for the Argentine -- who scored an equally awesome goal at the World Cup this summer -- and a big result for the club when it looked headed for a loss. Liverpool tops Group C with six points, with Napoli in second with five points and PSG one point behind in third. 

PSG heads to Naples next month for Matchday 4 where the winner puts itself in a comfortable position to advance.
