A late strike from Kylian Mbappe allowed Paris St Germain to snatch a 3-2 win at Brest in the Ligue 1 on Sunday.

The visitors were awarded a penalty after Lilian Brassier fouled Randal Kolo Muani. While Mbappe’s spot kick effort was saved, he netted the rebound a minute before stoppage time.


PSG are second with 21 points, a point behind leaders Nice. Brest are sixth with 15 points.

Warren Zaire-Emery, 17, displayed his skills 16 minutes into the game when he fired a thunderous shot into the upper left corner to hand PSG a 1-0 lead. Mbappe doubled the score with his 250th club goal when he calmly slotted the ball into the bottom-left corner in the 28th minute.

Steve Mounie was roared on by the home fans when he netted a close-range shortly before the interval and Jeremy Le Douaron levelled the score with another just after the restart.

Cambiaso on target

Juventus secured a last-second 1-0 victory over Hellas Verona at home on Saturday, thanks to Andrea Cambiaso, with striker Moise Kean having two disallowed goals in Serie A.

After applying intense pressure throughout the match, Juve finally found the decider in the seventh minute of stoppage time when Cambiaso tapped in a failed clearance after Arkadiusz Milik’s header struck the post.

Massimiliano Allegri’s side wasted 24 significant chances.Early in the match, Kean put the ball into the net after a remarkable run from midfield, but it was in vain as Vlahovic was narrowly offside when the ball deflected off him.
