Paris provides the essentials

Private Ramos, Neymar, or Messi, PSG has done the job. Far from being reassuring defensively, Mauricio Pochettino's men relied on their technical qualities to establish their domination in Brest. And, with sobriety, they ensured the essential: a victory synonymous with a perfect start to the season (9pts). Provisionally alone at the top of Ligue 1, the Parisians could also count on significant returns, including Messi's first to end the month against Reims next Sunday (8:45 p.m.).

Hakimi-Mbappé, winning duo

If Paris did not have all its stars at their disposal, the capital club was however able to rely on two players who were very comfortable at the start of the season. Already very prominent during the first two meetings, Achraf Hakimi and Kylian Mbappé reissued against Brest this Friday. Involved in the majority of their team's goals, the two men flaunted their whole class, bringing PSG to success. A decisive pass for one (Hakimi), a goal for the second (36th). Turntables.

Inspired Faivre and Honorat

These are two of the Brest residents who put themselves in the spotlight.

Hyperactive in the right lane, the former Nice Franck Honorat delivered a quality game, putting the Diallo-Kimpembe duo in difficulty.

It is on his side that the Brestois found the most solutions and his association with Romain Faivre (2 assists) worked wonders.

Scorer (42nd), Honorat owes its achievement to a nice inspiration from his friend, author of a heel back to goal.

The series continues for Brest

And seven for Brest. Beaten without being unworthy against PSG, Stade Brestois continues its delicate series by bringing to 7 its number of matches without a win in Ligue 1. A series without a win even rises to 8 for home matches. Two worrying statistics, after two promising draws at the start of the season against Lyon (1-1) and Rennes (1-1). But now it's time for a more affordable schedule for Breton pirates.

Icardi little in sight, Wijnaldum not at ease

Placed at the forefront of an attack with two with Kylian Mbappé, Mauro Icardi will not have really marked the spirits in Brest. Little in sight, he did not have much to eat and even missed his only opportunity of the evening by missing the ball against Bizot (21st). For his part, Georginio Wijnaldum did not deliver a great match either. Placed in support of the two attackers, in a much more offensive role, he will have struggled to highlight himself, sometimes seeming clumsy, uncomfortable in this interim role.

Navas and Bizot struggling

With six goals conceded in total, it was better not to be a goalkeeper on Friday at the Francis-Le Blé stadium. Especially since three of them could have been avoided. The first is to the credit of Bizot, replacing Larsonneur left on the bench. On a recovery from Herrera (23rd), the Dutch goalkeeper folded well but did not deflect the ball enough. 0-1. Responding to his counterpart, Keylor Navas was also guilty of an unusual hand fault against Honorat (1-2, 42nd). And it was at the approach of the last quarter of an hour that Bizot reissued, showing himself to be far too wait-and-see on the distant strike from Gueye (1-3, 71st). Enough to shake up the hierarchy of guardians on one side or the other?
