Five minutes into the second half, PSG opted for a change as Javier Pastore made way for Julian Draxler.
However, Guingamp doubled their lead after 68 minutes with Briand firing past Areola from close range, 0-2.
PSG were then awarded a penalty with 15 minutes remaining, with Cavani stepping up and converting the spot-kick to reduce the deficit.
Les Parisians leveled matters in the 82nd minute as Cavani completed his brace with a fine header from close range.
Unai Emery's charges pushed for a winning goal in the closing stages but they were unable carve out another opening as the game ended 2-2.
