Paris, France.- A goal by Argentina’s Mauro Icardi four minutes from the end re-engaged Paris Saint Germain with the triumph on his visit to Brest (1-2), a result that accentuates his dominance in Ligue 1 of France.The French champion, who had taken the day in Dijon his third league defeat and who won with hard to Club Bruges in the Champions League, benefited from the Argentine forward.
He’s on an Icardi streak. The footballer on loan from Inter added his ninth goal to Brest. Six in Ligue 1 and three in the mainland competition. He has scored in seven of the last eight meetings in which he has participated. Despite this, Mauro Icardi started on the bench. Thomas Tuchel, who could not count on Kylian Mbappe or Neymar, Thomas Meunier and Ander Herrera, gave entry to Edinson Cavani, a regular understudy in recent engagements.
Paris Saint Germain had to face another setback before the start at Brest because in the warm-up before the start of the clash the keylor Navas was injured. He noticed discomfort in an abductor and did not play. It’s doubt now for your selection. Tuchel turned to Sergio Rico. The Spanish goalkeeper, on loan from Sevilla in September, had not played a minute with the French champion. He was always an alternate for the Costa Rican. In Brest he debuted. Rico is the fourth goalkeeper to take Paris Saint Germain so far this season after Alphonse Areola, on loan from Real Madrid, young Polish marcin Bulka, who arrived from Chelsea, and Keylor Navas, a regular starter.

Cavani, Angel Di María and Pablo Sarabia formed the psG attack, which was set aside six minutes from half a break. The author of the goal was Di María, who received in the center of the field an inner pass from Julian Draxler, faced the Brest area and stung the ball above the Gautier Larsonneur goal on his exit. Paris Saint Germain did not close the match and got complicated at the end. The Brest, a team that travels through the equator of the standings and that a week ago with the defeat in Amiens ended a three-win streak in a row, took advantage of his occasion.
It was in a counter that caught the Parisian defense out of place and that the Brest faced with superiority and success. Yoann Court sent the ball to Samuel Grandsir, alone, who beat Sergio Rico.Tuchel reacted. He looked for solutions on the bench and made all three changes at once. All in the 80th minute. Icardi entered by Edinson Cavani, Marquinhos by Marco Verratti and Eric Maxim Cheupo Moting for Sarabia.

Two of them were decisive in the winning goal. Cheupo Moting entered the area on the left and sent a pass that tried to be intercepted by a defenseman. The ball was loose and Icardi appeared, which took him to the net to seal the Parisian triumph. Paris Saint Germain’s 10th win scores his lead over the second, Angers, who visits Reims.
