The Mbappé brand, the PSG unlocks a feature
Paris Saint-Germain set the tone for the match from the start. With control in front of an opponent who has not yet won the competition, the Paris team started the victory with Herrera, in the 22nd minute. The midfielder took advantage of a ball that hit the edge of the area and kicked it hard first to score a beautiful goal.
At the age of thirty-five, it was Mbappe’s turn to make his mark. He took advantage of Wijnaldum’s rebound after a kick and headed towards goal. With the end of the first half approaching, in the 41st minute, Onurat saved after receiving a beautiful pass from Pfeiffer.
Di Maria determines victory in the end
Opening the lead in the first half, Paris Saint-Germain’s win seemed underway after Gaye risked a long-range shot in the 27th minute of the second stage and scored the Paris team’s third goal. However, at the age of 39, Brest was given a new lease on life after Mooney received a shot from above and touched Keylor Navas’ exit to cut him off.
Even the home team showed pressure, but in the 44th minute, Di Maria gave the final numbers for the match. The Argentine, who entered the vacant seat of Mbappe, scored a superb goal after an impressive series of counter-attacks.
Donnarumma cunt no bench
Messi and Sergio Ramos were not the only ones whose debut was postponed by Paris Saint-Germain. Goalkeeper Donnarumma was even on the list, but saw a win on the bench.
Even without entering the stadium, Donnarumma grabbed the spotlight, especially when the match broadcast showed the goalkeeper immediately after the first goal conceded by Paris Saint-Germain. Navas even touched the ball but let it pass under his body.
