PARIS: Paris St Germain gave up a two-goal lead to draw 2-2 at home to Brest on Sunday as the hosts missed the chance to extend their Ligue 1 lead.
Luis Enrique’s side, who finished with 10 men after Bradley Barcola was sent off in stoppage time, remained top with 44 points, six clear of second-placed Nice. Brest are third with 35 points, one ahead of AS Monaco.
Marco Asensio opened the scoring in the 38th minute with a close-range volley from a brilliant chipped pass from Barcola to score his first league goal since September.
Randal Kolo Muani doubled the lead by tapping in a loose ball from close range after Brest goalkeeper Marco Bizot blocked Asensio’s effort just before halftime.
Brest pulled one back 10 minutes into the second half as Mahdi Camara’s shot from inside the box bounced off PSG defender Danilo and past keeper Gianluigi Donnarumma.
Substitute Mathias Pereira Lage equalised with a classy back-heel in the 80th minute when Martin Satriano found him in the six-yard box after a fine solo run from the left.
PSG’s slim hopes of victory faded as they were reduced to 10 men after Barcola’s second yellow card in stoppage time.
