PARIS (AP) -- Substitute Axel Ngando scored a last-minute equalizer with his first touch in professional football to earn Rennes a 2-2 draw away to Lorient in a thrilling Brittany derby on Saturday.

Jeremie Aliadiere blasted a superb solo goal into the top corner with 10 minutes left as Lorient looked set to provisionally move above Rennes into fourth place, but Ngando finished coolly as Rennes again salvaged a draw following last weekend's late goal in a 2-2 result with Marseille.

Midfielder Yann Jouffre put Lorient ahead before forward Mevlut Erding equalized early in the second half.

Bordeaux and Nice could move above Rennes by winning their matches later Saturday.

PSG thrashed Toulouse 4-0 on Friday to move three points clear of Lyon, which travels to play Corsican side Ajaccio on Sunday.
