PSG (Paris-Saint Germain) gets back to winning ways with a comfortable 2-0 victory over Brest at the Parc des Princes.
Despite PSG looking second-best in the opening stages, the quality of the hosts eventually shone through,
As Mbappe opened the scoring 32 minutes into the match,
A lead was doubled eight minutes after the restart by Kehrer following a sublime Mendes dribble and cross.
Wijnaldum’s injury is the only dampener on an otherwise positive result for Pochettino’s side, who largely outplayed their opponents.
A positive start from Brest led to unfinished chances for both Cardona and Le Douaron,
but the attacking momentum was largely stalled in an uninspiring second half for Der Zakarian’s side.
The win puts PSG ahead of Nice at the top of the table by 11 points, while Brest stays 13th.
