Ligue 1PARIS, France, Jan. 15 (Reuters) - Kylian Mbappe scored the opening goal as Paris beat Saint-Germain 2-0 at the Parc des Princes Brest on Saturday, extending their lead at the top of Ligue 1 to 11 points. Mauricio Pochettino's men, who missed out on the title against Lille last season, had drawn four of their five previous league games before second-placed Nice moved up to eight points in a 2-1 win over Nantes on Friday. But the capital giants had no trouble brushing Brest aside as Mbappe scored 10 goals in his last six games. "The most important thing is to have had chances and good situations," said PSG coach Pochettino. Brest were actually the better team early on and were only given a surprise lead in the ninth minute by a great save by Covid-returning Gianluigi Donnarumma to deflect Irvin Cardona's shot when the visiting striker was clean in the box. However, as the first half progressed, PSG gradually took control of the game and took the lead in the 32nd minute. Mbappe collected Georginio Wijnaldum's pass right inside the box, cutting into his man and drilling a fine shot into the near post to score his 19th goal of the season. Mauro Icardi ruled out a goal for a foul just before half-time before missing a golden opportunity early in the second period when he turned the ball against the post. Wijnaldum had to be substituted at half-time with an ankle injury but Pochettino said he hoped it wasn't a serious problem and that the Dutchman would be tested. But PSG doubled their lead in the 53rd minute when Nuno Mendes' trick created space for a low cross which German defender Thilo Kehrer sidefooted home to score his second goal in as many games. The hosts had several chances to add another goal but visiting goalkeeper Marco Bizot made a series of great saves to keep the goal low. Earlier on Sunday, a 2-1 win saw Lens move from behind to fourth at bottom Saint-Etienne, who are hoping to avoid relegation for the first time since being promoted to the top flight in 2004.

Kylian Mbappe at the first home game in 2022 (Author: Gardener)

1Paris Saint-Germain are back in action in the French capital for the first time this new year, with Stade Brestois 29 being the Ligue 1 visitors. Lionel Messi and Neymar will be absent, but Kylian Mbappe will be in the Parc des Princes as Mauricio Pochettino's men are looking to extend their 11-point lead at the Championnat summit. PSG: Lionel Messi and Neymar are both out, while Denis Franchi has tested positive for COVID-19 and Alexandre Letellier continues to receive calf treatment. Achraf Hakimi, Idrissa Gueye and Abdou Diallo are all on AFCON duty while Juan Bernat continues to recover from COVID. Layvin Kurzawa remains separated from the rest of the squad. Romain del Castillo and Sebastien Cibois remain injured. Romain Faivre and Irvin Cardona missed training this week but are fit. Denys Bain and Rafiki Said miss out after testing positive for COVID-19. PSG: Les Parisiens started 2022 with an easy win against Vannes OC before a Ligue 1 draw with Olympique Lyonnais. With Real Madrid in the UEFA Champions League in just over a month, PSG need to start gathering form. Brest may not be the best indicator of form but they have recently picked up six wins in a row and should not be taken lightly. SB29: Without a win in three Ligue 1 games, Michel Der Zakarian will be keen to get his players back on track for success but will also recognize that Paris is not the ideal place to do so. Instead, an encouraging performance here could inspire enough confidence to regain form at home against Lille. Also, it depends on PSG's mood and how generous they are willing to be. The hosts should win this quite easily. However, this has been said a number of times recently and those games have been closer than expected. This could also be a perennial favorite as Brest is late in succumbing to Parisian strength. Selection: PSG 2-0 S-B29.

Mbappe on goal as PSG beat Brest

BrestParis St-Germain returned to winning ways with Kylian Mbappe to move 11 points clear at the top of Ligue 1 with a win over Brest. Mbappe fired from the edge of the box in the first set - his 19th goal of the season 10th in the league. Thilo Kehrer scored the points with a wonderful sideways volley after a Nuno Mendes cross. It was the defender's second goal in as many league games after his equalizer against Lyon last weekend. Before that, he had scored just two goals in Ligue 1 in 70 appearances. The win extended PSG's unbeaten run in Ligue 1 to 12 games but was just a second win in their last six. They've gotten into the habit of conceding first lately and would have done so again had Gianluigi Donnarumma not made a great save from Irvin Cardona after a misjudged back pass from Presnel Kimpembe. But after surviving that scare, they set about taking control, taking the lead through Mbappe's clean cut inside and superb low finish. Marco Verratti hit the far post with a top kick early in the second half before Kehrer struck to give the home side a more comfortable final 35 minutes, which included a late appearance from Sergio Ramos.

Soccer-PSG defeated Brest 2-0 and extended their 11-point lead at the top

UK-SOCCER-FRANCE-PSG-B29-REPORT:Soccer-PSG defeated Brest 2-0 to restore 11-point lead at the top (Author: Gardener)

Brest 2-0(Reuters) - Paris St Germain bounced back from a shaky start to reclaim an 11-point lead in Ligue 1 as goals from Kylian Mbappe and Thilo Kehrer gave them a 2-0 home win over Stade Brestois on Saturday. Mbappe and Kehrer scored on either side of the break to take the capital side to 50 points from 21 games a day after second-placed Nice beat Nantes 2-1. Third-placed Olympique de Marseille will draw level with Nice on 39 points when they beat champions Lille at the Stade Velodrome on Sunday. RC Lens are fourth on 33 points after Seko Fofana's added-time goal gave the Northerners a 2-1 win at bottom St Etienne on Saturday. Brest, who were seeking their first top-flight win against PSG since 1985, had three shots on target in the first 20 minutes. However, it was Mbappe who broke the deadlock in round 32 with a clinical low shot from 16 yards out for his 10th Ligue 1 goal of the season as PSG upped the pressure. Marco Verratti almost doubled the lead three minutes into the second half, but his shot from the angle hit the post. PSG's German defender Kehrer finally made it 2-0 in the 53rd minute when he fired home after a cutback from Nuno Mendes. Kehrer and Mbappe, cautioned for a first-half scuffle with Hugo Magnetti, had other chances but Mauricio Pochettino's side had already secured a routine victory.

Mbappe 'not against staying at PSG after contract talks resume'

Kylian Mbappe's contract with PSG expires at the end of June. Mbappe was reportedly pushing to leave Real Madrid and join Real Madrid last summer but he is now said to be considering signing a new contract. (Author: Gardener)

Kylian Mbappe'sKylian Mbappe is reportedly hitting the idea of ​​staying at PSG after starting talks with the club over a new deal. Mbappe, 23, appeared ready to leave Parc des Princes when his contract expires this summer, sealing a free move to Real Madrid. He was reportedly pushing for a departure last summer but PSG are determined to keep him and are even said to have turned down a £134million offer from Real. Kylian Mbappe comes up with the idea of ​​staying at PSG after holding new contract talks. Instead, they valued the French world champions at closer to £175m, stopping Los Blancos from making another bid with his contract at the end of June. Mbappe is now eligible to secure a free transfer for the summer but The Telegraph report he could apply to PSG for an extension. The former Monaco ace, who has recorded 18 goals and 15 assists in 26 games for Mauricio Pochettino's side this season, recently resumed contract talks with the bosses of the Parc des Princes and is open to the idea of ​​staying there . Real Madrid had hoped to land the 23-year-old on a free transfer at the end of June but Mbappe, who has scored 18 goals for PSG this season, is considering staying at the club. Sporting director Leonardo insists Mbappe 'always promised' he'd never leave for nothing' and even if he puts this new deal on paper, Real could still come back with another offer.

Mbappe continues to shine alone as Paris Saint-Germain clinch another win

The Frenchman was largely held back by his underperforming teammates (Author: Gardener)

Paris Saint-GermainAlthough the France international remains the star of Les Parisiens in some ways, the 23-year-old was left with no choice against Michel Der Zakarian's men in the capital as most of his team-mates failed to contribute. Both Mbappe and Kehrer finished clinking in both halves, with Nuno Mendes setting the German up brilliantly after Gini Wijnaldum provided the opener, but those were rare, precious moments in which the star-studded home side stuck together. Otherwise, the Netherlands international looked off the pace again and didn't last past the first half, while Mauro Icardi struggled up front without really contributing to the time he was on the pitch. Gone is Ander Herrera's strong form earlier in the season and the Spaniard is back to the technical feats that make him little more than a rotation option for the squad, like Danilo Pereira who joined him in the middle in the second half followed when Wijnaldum was substituted. To accuse each of Mbappé's PSG team-mates of performing far below their best would be unfair to the likes of Gianluigi Donnarumma and his numerous key saves, as well as to captain Marquinhos, who has been a rare symbol of consistency in Paris. Angel Di Maria, for example, is no longer able to play at the same level as his illustrious past, while the same goes for second-half substitute Sergio Ramos, with the exception that none of his best times came at PSG . Another week, another Parisian win at Le Championnat, but Mbappe can't do much on his own and Pochettino is one ill-timed injury, suspension or poor form away from finding out just how dependent his team really is on his No7 star.
