PSG
have
now
won
each
of
their
last
10
league
matches
against
Brest,
and
appear
strong
favourites
for
yet
another
title
after
extending
their
unbeaten
home
league
run
in
to
25
games.

Brest
came
under
intense
pressure
inside
the
opening
20
minutes
with
Neymar,
Kylian
Mbappe
and
Lionel
Messi
all
going
close
for
the
Parisians.

The
visitors’ struggles
appeared
set
to
worsen
when
Christophe
Herelle
received
a
red
card
for
fouling
Neymar,
but
they
were
reprieved
after
a
VAR
check
revealed
the
PSG
forward
had
strayed
offside
before
the
challenge
occurred.

The
Brazil
international
broke
the
deadlock
on
the
half-hour
mark,
however,
controlling
Messi’s
wonderful
lofted
ball
before
firing
past
Marco
Bizot.

The
Brest
goalkeeper
did
well
to
thwart
Messi
and
Mbappe
before
the
break,
while
the
latter
was
also
denied
by
the
offside
flag.

The
woodwork
then
came
to
the
visitors’
rescue
within
five
minutes
of
the
restart;
Messi
heading
against
the
post
from
Mbappe’s
cross.

Despite
registering
12
shots
on
goal,
PSG
were
almost
made
to
pay
for
their
lacking
of
cutting
edge
in
the
70th
minute
when
Presnel
Kimpembe
fouled
Noah
Fadiga
in
the
box.

However,
Donnarumma
guessed
correctly
to
keep
out
Slimani
from
12
yards
and
ensure
his
side’s
return
to
the
Ligue
1
summit.
