Brest vs PSG - Grades: Forwards

2 - Messi: Have you seen World Cup champion Messi? Tell him PSG are still playing games and that the season won't be over for the next couple of months, whether he likes that or not. Maybe, just maybe, he shows up and tries to do something. Not like yesterday (assuming that tiny forward on the pitch was him, of course), as the Argentine put on another more than mediocre outing for the nth time this year. Same as Mbappe, he still found a way to make the headlines by bagging his 300th assist at club-level while assisting the French world-beater for the game-winning goal. Sheesh...

3 - Mbappe: He should have been sent off for having a childish reaction at the end of the game (I mean he kicked an opponent lying on the ground, on purpose, for no reason, after having already tackled him hard before that...), but instead he turned that into a goal by the 90th minute, that earned PSG three more points and one more win, and that gave Christophe Galtier enough air to live to see another day. Not only that, but his goal marked the 3,000th in the Ligue 1 in the history of Paris Saint-Germain. See what he's doing?

Next. PSG plans for next season start to emerge. dark

NR - Ekitike: Brief 10-minute cameo. Nothing to say about the man who came from Reims, helped his former club fill their coffers, and provided little to nothing to PSG in the 2022/23 campaign. QSI approved.
