PSG returned to the only competition they're still playing for, the French Ligue 1, and defeated Brest on the road earning their fourth win (2-1) in a row, this one away from the Parc des Princes.
The current champions earned the three points thanks to a last-minute goal by Kylian Mbappe, who was assisted by Lionel Messi. That play helped Mbappe make history (once more) by scoring the 3,000th goal of PSG in the Ligue 1, while Messi racked up the 300th assist of his career at club-level football.
The players form Paris Saint-Germain reacted nicely to the loss at Bayern Munich last Wednesday with an extraordinary (although goalless) 20 minutes of play at the start of Saturday's game but they put on an awful, dispirited, uninspiring performance after than that could be saved by another miraculous goal on the verge of catastrophe.
It wasn't a good game for the team managed by Christophe Galtier, who was forced to change the shape of the team because of the multiple injuries on PSG's ranks these days. Even then, Paris earned their fourth W in a row, building an 11-point gap with second-place Olympique Marseille in the Ligue 1 standings.
Here are three of the most important talking points after the victory of the Parisian in the game between PSG and Brest as part of the 27th matchday of their Ligue 1 campaign.
