Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) experienced a setback in Ligue 1 as they squandered a 2-0 lead against Brest, resulting in a 2-2 draw.
The Parisians, who had a six-point lead at the top of the league, failed to secure a victory despite goals from Marco Asensio and Randal Kolo Muani.
Asensio opened the scoring with an angled volley into the bottom corner, showcasing PSG’s attacking prowess.
Kolo Muani extended the lead, capitalizing on a rebound after Marco Bizot deflected Asensio’s shot. However, Brest mounted a comeback in the second half, with a Danilo Pereira deflection beating Gianluigi Donnarumma to pull one back.
The dramatic turnaround was completed with Mathias Pereira Lage’s flashy backheel finish, securing a point for Brest.
Meanwhile, Kylian Mbappe had an off night, contributing to PSG’s struggles and failing to make a significant impact in the top of the table fixture.
The draw extended PSG’s undefeated run to 14 consecutive games in Ligue 1, but it highlighted vulnerabilities in their quest for dominance. Despite dropping points, PSG retains a six-point lead in the league standings.
Next, PSG will face Strasbourg before meeting Brest again, this time in the Coupe de France Round of 16. The spotlight remains on Kylian Mbappe, with scrutiny intensifying amid ongoing speculation about his future and a perceived dip in performance.
