  • The bad gesture of the weekend: Presnel Kimpembe lost his nerve

If the Parisian leader won again on Saturday, against Brest, the three points were acquired with pain. Even Brest should have equalized the players from the capital again, if Islam Slimani had converted his shot on goal (71me), deflected by the steady hand of Gianluigi Donnarumma.

This penalty was conceded by Presnel Kimpembe, taken aback by the dribbling of the spinner Noah Fadiga. Already warned, the 2018 world champion defender will commit a new foul at the end of the game, catching Irvin Cardona’s shin guard with a hard tackle down the side (91me), facing the Brest bench, and a crazy Michel Der Zakarian.

Afteroh 3 The Parisians, however, will not receive a second card as synonymous with expulsion. Nor will he be sanctioned when, with his face closed and his gaze aggressive, he abruptly brushes away the arm of referee Jérôme Pignard moments later, who has come to separate the player from several regrouped Brestois.

Still without the slightest victory, Ajacciens is at the back of the standings, with another loss, the sixth in seven games.

He must draw a card, at least one yellow. If he rolls yellow, he is out because he had already rolled one. If it was us, we’re out. But this is Paris.
