PSG falters as Brest stages remarkable comeback in Ligue 1 clash

Posted : 29 January 2024

Paris Saint-Germain faced an unexpected challenge as they squandered a two-goal lead, settling for a 2-2 draw against resilient Brest in Ligue 1. Marco Asensio, in his first league start since September, secured PSG's lead with a volley late in the first half, followed by Randal Kolo Muani's tap-in before the break.

 

However, Brest initiated a comeback with an own goal by Danilo on the 55th minute, and Mathias Pereira Lage cleverly equalized with a back-heel flick, ending PSG's 14-game winning streak against Brest. Bradley Barcola's late red card further added to PSG's frustrations.

 

The draw resulted in Paris Saint-Germain seeing their lead at the top of the table reduced to six points, courtesy of Nice's 1-0 victory over Metz. Brest, now unbeaten in eight games, maintained their nine-point gap from the league leaders. The teams are set to face each other again in the French Cup's last 16 on February 7, with Brest aiming to break a 27-match winless streak against PSG dating back to 1985.

 

In other Ligue 1 clashes, Ghana's Andre Ayew made a impactful return from the Africa Cup of Nations, scoring a stoppage-time equalizer in Le Havre's 3-3 draw against bottom side Lorient. Lens secured a 2-0 victory over Toulouse, while Clermont and Strasbourg ended their encounter in a 1-1 draw. Tino Kadewere missed a penalty for Nantes in a goalless draw against Reims, and Montpellier shared points with 10-man Lille in another scoreless stalemate at home.
