Brest vs Paris Saint Germain: Paris Saint-Germain don’t have many star players, including newly signed Lionel Messi and Neymar, but there is still too much for Brest, as they have managed three wins and three losses in the Ligue 1 Champion.
Ander Herrera’s volley and Kelian Mbappé‘s header put PSG under control before Franck Honorat removed it.
Idrissa Gueye (Idrissa Gueye) fired from the start, but Brest refused to lie down and Steve Mounie entered.
Substitute Angel di Maria (Angel di Maria) decided the game with a good balloon.
A six-time Ballon d’Or winner, Messi has yet to appear at Paris Saint-Germain since arriving from Barcelona earlier this month.
In the Copa América final held in Rio on July 11, Messi’s Argentine team defeated teammate Brazil by 10 strokes. 34-year-old forward Neymar and his forward Neymar are experimenting.
Also absent was defender Sergio Ramos, another summer signing, while Italian European champion goalkeeper Gianluigi Donnarumma sat on the bench.
The level of talent of PSG coach Mauricio Pochettino is terrifying. Their starting eleven still includes many international players, including Mbappé, Achraf Hakimi, Giorginio Wijnaldum and Marco Verratti.
Italian Verratti should have scored from close range in the first half, and then Herrera showed him the way with his excellent shot outside the penalty area. When Mbappé blocked a fumble header, PSG appeared to be pulling away, but as Brest kept the result in balance, Honorat prepared to shoot during the break.
The best goal came from Guye, who received the ball in the middle of the half from Brest and shot from the corner. This was his fourth goal for PSG in 79 games.
Mooney kept the game alive, but Di Maria emphasized PSG’s quality with a beautiful high shot after a counterattack.
Mauricio Pochettino’s team (Mauricio Pochettino) scored 9 points, Biange and Clemento 3 points, both played on Sunday the third game of the league season.
