Neymar did not play either. However, Mauricio Pochettino’s team has once again demonstrated the enormous potential that it appreciates.

If in the first two days of the Ligue 1 the French international showed his most closely linked team, after signing two passes with a goal, Mbappe showed that he still had the opposite goal between his eyebrows.

This is also attested by 133 goals, scored by Mbappe on Friday at the Brest Stadium, in 174 matches he played for Paris Saint-Germain since his arrival at the capital club in August 2017.

Although the signing on Friday at the Stade Francis Le Ble was special and not only because of the absence of Argentine Lionel Messi and Brazilian Neymar, who was left by coach Mauricio Pochettino to end the call one hundred percent physically, all eyes are on. They were on Mbappe, but for the way he arrived.

Mbappe scored with a header, a luck not usually wasted by the French striker, who scored again with his head in the French championship almost four years later.

Not that the French striker became an excellent header, but he showed the ambition and determination needed to turn a confusion in the Brest region in the 36th minute at 0-2 for Paris Saint-Germain with a powerful and accurate header.

A circumstance that allowed Brest to go into the first half alive after cutting the difference (1-2) with a goal in the 42nd minute from Frank Honorat.

Although the Paris win did not look as dangerous as that, he came back in the 73rd minute to restore a two-goal entry with Zapata far away from Senegalese Idrissa Gueye who made it 1-3.

However, Mauricio Pochettino’s side seemed determined to continue giving life to Brest, who did not lose sight of striker Mauro Icardi’s loss at the core to bring excitement to the final five minutes of play with a goal (2-3) for striker Steve Money.

The passion with which Argentine Angel Di Maria was responsible for the finisher, who, just nine minutes after entering the field to replace Kylian Mbappe, scored in the last minute of the final regulation time 2-4 for the Parisians, who continue to count their matches. for victories. (Dr)
