Still unbeaten at Parc des Princes this Ligue 1 campaign, PSG can thank their never-say-die attitude for such a streak as they’ve won all three top-flight home games in which they conceded first.
Nine-time Ligue 1 champions Paris Saint-Germain may be struggling to find their true identity under boss Mauricio Pochettino, but they’re still flying high in the table and possess an 11-point lead at the top ahead of this matchday. It’s not all perfect though, as their tally of 18 goals conceded is their joint-worst return at the same point since the start of the club’s Qatari-era back in 2011/12, and they’ll be hampered here by injuries and AFCON call ups. Still unbeaten at Parc des Princes this Ligue 1 campaign, PSG can thank their never-say-die attitude for such a streak as they’ve won all three top-flight home games in which they conceded first. The H2H history makes for further positive reading, as they’ve won their previous ten competitive H2Hs versus Brest, with seven of those seeing them overcome a -1 handicap.
All good things must come to an end and visiting Brest have found that out the hard way with a three-game winless run in Ligue 1 ending what was the club’s longest ever top-flight winning streak. The visitors also conceded eight goals over that three-match winless streak, more than in their previous nine league outings combined! Brest’s impressive away league form could be key to them claiming their first points away to PSG since May 1991 – although they’ve secured only one clean sheet across their last 16 league road trips. Strangely, conceding first may not be a problem though, as they boast the league record for points recovered after conceding first on the road in 2021/22 with ten.
PSG have gone on to win 29 of the 31 competitive matches in which talismanic Mauro Icardi has found the net. Romain Faivre has been involved in 46 per cent of Brest’s league goals this season, including two assists in the reverse H2H. Brest haven’t won against Ligue 1 leaders since March 1990.
