The pressure was strong for PSG from the tenth minute when Lille broke the deadlock at the Raymond Kopa stadium. The visitors really should have scored a goal nine minutes later as Angel Di Maria fell into the box after a reckless challenge from Romain Faivre. However, Neymar largely wasted his penalty. The agonizing slowness of the Brazilian ended with a strong effort that flew far from the left post of goalkeeper Gautier Larsonneur.
PSG, who were slow and heavy throughout the first half, continued to push for the opening goal and they got it in the 37th minute under extraordinary circumstances. Di Maria’s cross from a corner took a bad deflection from Faivre and looped Larsonneur into the net.
With the filtered news that Lille won 2-0 when PSG were already in the locker room for half-time, Mauricio Pochettino’s side looked less inspired to come out and extend their lead.
Brest nearly equalized in the 66th minute when Gaëtan Charbonnier was sent clear on goal, but the 32-year-old’s low and powerful shot was well saved by the feet of Keylor Navas. Two minutes later, the Costa Rican international was called to action again, preventing Faivre from stabbing at close range.
Kylian Mbappe put the game beyond Brest as the rain continued to fall in Brittany. In the 71st minute, the 22-year-old was put on goal and he rounded Larsonneur to score PSG’s second.
DISCUSSION POINT – What now for PSG and Mbappe?
PSG held their end of the bargain on the final day, but the nationwide campaign will ultimately be seen as a resounding disappointment for one of the richest football clubs in the world.
Thomas Tuchel may have been kicked out of the club harshly over Christmas and substitute Pochettino has apparently done little so far to further develop the squad with a Champions League semi-final outing at Manchester City still fresh in the game. memory.
PSG are expected to return an improved squad next season and at least win a domestic treble, but with persistent reports that League 20/21 top scorer Mbappe could be on the sidelines and heading for a new challenge this summer transfer window. , PSG’s failure to win the French championship could be what sends it.
MAN OF THE MATCH – Angel Di Maria
No player particularly shone that night but Di Maria played an important role in the game by winning PSG a penalty that Neymar should have converted while giving them the lead with a wacky goal on Faivre.
As is often the case with PSG in Ligue 1, the Argentinian was one of their few players to be more direct and picked up the pace at times when visitors were playing absurd passes around. from the opponent’s area.

10 ‘- GOAL FOR LITTLE! It has been a timid ten minute opener here, but there is big news at the Raymond Kopa stadium as Lille lead 1-0 against Angers! Jonathan David scored so they will be champions of France as it is!
17 ‘- PENALTY TO PSG !!! Di Maria goes down into the box and it’s a reckless challenge from Faivre who goes to the ground and shoots Di Maria when he doesn’t need it! He knew what he was doing. Neymar is stepping up …
19 ‘- MISSED PENALTY !!! After a terribly slow momentum, Neymar takes his penalty very wide !!! What a horrible pain! It was embarrassing for the Brazilian who stabs his low shot next to Larsonneur’s left post! Larsonnor’s mind games in keeping well to the right of his line have paid off!
37 ‘- BUT !!! Di Maria throws a corner, he takes a bad deflection from Faivre, who is the first man, and he curls Larsonneur strangely in the net !! PSG lead in really bizarre circumstances! It will remain a goal against his camp of Faivre because it was such a savage deviation.
HT – Lille look set to seal the Ligue 1 title. Burak Yilmaz scored on the spot against Angers in the first-half stoppage time to put Les Dogues 2-0 against Angers.
66 ‘- BIG ECONOMY! Charbonnier is sent to a head-to-head but Navas makes a good save with his feet to prevent the Frenchman from scoring the equalizer!
68 ‘- BIG ECONOMY! Navas makes an excellent stop to deprive Faivre of range at close range! It’s a good smooth move from Brest but they couldn’t make it count! At the other end, Mbappe bursts forward and passes into the area, but Di Maria can’t connect and he flies off for a goal kick!
70 ‘- BUT !! Mbappe passes, takes the ball around Larsonneur who slips in. He is thrown to the ground but then gets up to hit the net. PSG are comfortably ahead!
