Luis Enrique Dissects PSG’s Two-Goal Lead Collapse Against Brest

Paris Saint-Germain drew 2-2 against Stade Brestois on Sunday night at the Parc des Princes. Eric Roy and his team scored two consecutive goals to secure a draw and leave the French capital with one point.

Following the game, manager Luis Enrique reflects on his team’s surrender of a two-goal advantage in an interview with Prime Video. The Spanish tactician detailed how PSG lost control of the match, allowing Brest to take advantage.

“When you lose control of the game, it’s because you’re losing possession, losing many balls, conceding many opportunities, [and] situations,” Enrique said (h/t Culture PSG). “They managed to be very good, they’re a great team, and they could even have won the match.”

Moreover, Enrique was questioned about the lessons his team can learn from their errors in the draw as they prepare for the UEFA Champions League first-leg clash against Real Sociedad. 

The Spanish boss pushed back, emphasizing the importance of avoiding repeated mistakes against Brest in their upcoming encounter on February 7 in the Coupe de France Round of 16.

“We will play against them again, and it’s going to be difficult,” Enrique added. “Even if you lead 2-0 against them, the match isn’t over. And it’s a very good example of the risks you take against this great team. I really like them a lot.”

PSG’s ability to learn from this match will be intriguing, as any mistakes they make in their Coupe de France contest against Brest could potentially knock them out of the tournament.
