Brest vs PSG live score, updates, highlights, lineups, and result as ...
PSG are now fully focused on winning their 11th Ligue 1 title after suffering elimination at the hands of Bayern Munich in the Champions League.

Now that their UEFA Champions League participation has come to an abrupt end, PSG have nothing left but to concentrate on winning their 11th Ligue 1 crown with a game at Brest kicking off their final stretch of 12 matches.

PSG sit atop the Ligue 1 table with an eight-point lead over Marseille, but injuries won't make things easy for the defending champions.

Brest are battling for Ligue 1 survival, just one point removed from the drop zone. Last week's road win at Strasbourg, which interrupted a three-match losing streak, will provide a boost of confidence that they can make it for a fifth straight season in the French top flight.

Sporting News is following the Brest vs. PSG match live and providing live score updates, commentary.

Brest vs PSG live updates, highlights from Ligue 1 Final: Brest 1-2 PSG

90th min.: Goal PSG! Kylian Mbappe on the break. Leo Messi with the first-time assist to Mbappe, who beats the offside trap. And the Frenchman easily rounds the 'keeper to score. It was tight, but it looks like the goal will stand.

That was the 300th assist in Messi's club career, and the goal also sent Mbappe into a tie at the top of the Ligue 1 Golden Boot with Jonathan David.

85th min.: Mbappe risks a red card! He gets into an on-field tussle for the ball with Brest's Haris Belkebla and Mbappe kicks out. But the referee gives a yellow to both players and leaves it at that. No intervention from the VAR.

80th min.: SUB PSG, Brest. Hugo Ekitike on for PSG's Carlos Soler. The visitors are now throwing numbers forward. Brest right-back Noah Fadiga is injured and Christophe Herelle is on for him. Herelle is a centre-back, but can fill in at right-back.

76th min.: SUBS PSG, Brest. Both clubs make subs. PSG go to three defenders in the back as they take off right-back Timothee Pembele and Fabian Ruiz as Juan Bernat and Vitinha come on. Bernat is now the left wingback, while Nuno Mendes becomes a left winger.

70th min.: Chance PSG! Mbappe feeds left-back Nuno Mendes who goes into the box, loses a defender with a nasty cutback, and fires on goal. But the Brest goalkeeper punches away.

⚡ Crochet, Nuno Mendes.

67th min.: SUB Brest. Jeremy Le Douaron takes over at centre-forward in place of Steve Mounie. Le Douaron is Brest's top scorer (six goals).

62nd min.: Chance PSG! Kylian Mbappe has a clear look at goal, but he goes with his right instead of his left and he can't get it on frame.

— Mbappe Out Of Context ???????? (@MbappeOOC) March 11, 2023

I wish Mbappe would have passed the ball to Messi in that situation..

57th min.: Chance Brest! A set-piece header into the PSG box is nodded down just wide of the goal. Goalkeeper Gigi Donnarumma was right there, but it was still too close for comfort for PSG.

55th min.: Chance PSG! It's Messi with a quick control and shot, but it's off the mark. He may not be influential, but Messi can make something happen out of nothing.

49th min.: More smoke to start the half. Meanwhile, Brest defender Achraf Dari sends an arm into Kylian Mbappe's throat which sends the French star to the ground. He's back up as the smoke clears.

46th min.: Second half is underway. No changes on either side.

Halftime: Brest 1-1 PSG

Halftime: That was a fairly even first half and the score is a just reflection of the action on the field. PSG looked like they were always more likely to score, but Brest were hanging around and looked like they could do damage in transition.

Kylian Mbappe shows he has the ability to cause issues for Brest, and PSG need him to make things happen. Lionel Messi, on the other hand, is not on his game and doesn't look threatening at all. After his poor showing against Bayern Munich, we'll see how long he'll be given a pass in Paris.

45th min.: Match delay. Brest supporters light up the flares and the smoke engulfs the field. The referee has to halt play and wait for it to clear before restarting.

Brest vs. PSG was shortly paused due to smoke on the field after Brest's equalizer. ????

44th min.: Goal Brest! A long ball over the top by Del Castillo finds the wily Franck Honorat who holds off two defenders with his run and blasts a shot past PSG 'keeper Donnarumma. What a well-executed goal.

37th min.: Goal PSG! Carlos Soler with the vicious follow-up shot after the Brest goalkeeper gives up an easy rebound on a Kylian Mbappe blast from distance. Soler followed that Mbappe shot all the way and he was there to put home the loose ball.

35th min.: Brest want penalty! Duverne goes down in the PSG box on a challenge from behind by Warren Zaire-Emery, but the left-back let himself go. The referee doesn't call it.

27th min.: Chance PSG! A quick one-touch combination between Carlos Soler and Mbappe in the box, and Mbappe takes a diagonal shot that finishes just wide. When PSG accelerate in the box, they're a threat.

25th min.: Chance Brest! When Brest attack they're doing it down PSG's right flank where Timothee Pembele and Sergio Ramos are defending. On this instance Ramos makes a big defensive clearance on the cross from the left.

14th min.: Chance PSG! It looks like shooting practice for PSG, who easily get in and around the Brest box. But the shots they've been firing have found a Brest body. A Marco Verratti shot for PSG was deflected for a corner.

11th min.: PSG hit the woodwork! Messi incredibly whiffs on a shot, buthe touches the ball to Carlos Soler, whose curling shot is saved off the right post by Brest goalkeeper Marco Bizot.

9th min.: Meanwhile, this is what PSG manager Christophe Galtier is contending with in the locker room. It doesn't bode well for his continuity.

A number of players at PSG don't respect Christophe Galtier & have nicknamed him the "PE teacher," according to @Romain_Molina.

4th min.: PSG want a penalty! Messi sends Mbappe in behind, and the French star's left-footed shot is blocked by the Brest defender. The ball then caroms off the defender's arm and Mbappe wants a penalty, but that would have been harsh. Although his arm was extended, the defender was in his natural motion.

1st min.: PSG kick off. We'll see what kind of PSG shows up.
