A late Kylian Mbappe goal clinched a 3-2 win for Paris Saint-Germain over Brest on Sunday as Monaco slipped into third in Ligue 1 after defeat at Lille.
PSG saw off early season surprise package Brest thanks to a brace from Mbappe either side of halftime and a Warren Zaire-Emery rocket.
“It was difficult against a team that hadn’t lost at home yet this season,” said PSG’s coach Luis Enrique.
