In the match that took place last Sunday, despite taking an early 2-0 lead over Brest, Paris Saint-Germain let the home team quickly equalize 2-2. Only thanks to star Kylian Mbappe’s penalty kick situation did the defending Ligue 1 champion leave Stade Francis Le Ble with all 3 points.
Speaking after the match, coach Luis Enrique said: “It was a great win on a very difficult pitch. Brest has not lost at home this season. I think the match has two different halves. In the first half, we played well and could have scored more goals.”
“But at the end of the first half, they scored a goal from a throw-in, which is one of their strengths. In the second half, the truth is that we lost ourselves, and Brest was better than us. In the end , we had a situation that led to a penalty. I don’t know if it was a penalty or not, I guess it was a penalty. However, the second half was not up to our standards.”
The hard-fought victory helped Paris Saint-Germain rise to 2nd place on the Ligue 1 rankings, 1 point behind OGC Nice. After a not so favorable start, Luis Enrique and his team are gradually regaining confidence.
