Lee Kang-in’s first assist for Mbappe… PSG beats Brest 3-2

Lee Kang-inn earned his first assist in a Paris Saint-Germain (PSG-France) shirt with a brilliant penetrating pass to world soccer star Kylian Mbappe.

PSG defeated Brest 3-2 in the 10th round of the 2023-2024 French Ligue 1 away match at Stade Francis Le Bleu in Brest, France, on Monday afternoon (June 29).

Lee, who started as a right midfielder, showed off his long, sharp kicking ability and delivered an assist for the first time since joining PSG.

In the 28th minute of the first half, with the score 1-0, Lee won the ball at the back and set up a counterattack, delivering a precise penetrating pass to Mbappe, who was running forward with a quick left-footed out-front kick.

After receiving the ball, Mbappe took a few quick dribbles to get to the opponent’s penalty area, where his right-footed shot deflected off a defender and into the net for PSG’s second goal.

Ligue 1 described Mbappe’s goal in a text broadcast on its website as “assisted by Lee Kang-in, who scattered the ball in a fast-paced situation”.

It was Lee’s first assist since joining PSG and his first offensive point in the regular season.

It was another sharp attacking display after his PSG debut goal that made it 3-0 in the UEFA Champions League (UCL) group stage match against AC Milan (Italy) on Sept. 26.

Three minutes into the match, Lee fired a left-footed strike after being set up by Mbappe’s penetrating pass, and in the 22nd minute, he sent shivers down Brest’s spine with a powerful right-footed strike after playing a two-on-one with Gonzalo Hamus to get into the penalty area.

Lee, who was on the field for 74 minutes before being replaced by Vitinha in the 29th minute, has a respectable rating of 7.63 on soccer stats site Fúscore.com.

PSG opened the scoring for Brest in the 16th minute of the first half when 2006-born prodigy Warren Zaire Emery struck a surprise right-footed mid-range shot from behind the penalty spot.

With Mbappe adding a second goal after ‘linking up’ with Lee Kang-in, PSG looked to have an early lead.

However, back-to-back goals from Steve Mounier in the 43rd minute and Jérémy Lédouard seven minutes later brought the game back to level.

PSG then had one last chance in the 39th minute when Randal Kolo Moani went down in the box after a collision with a defender, and a penalty was awarded after video assistant referee (VAR) review.

Mbappe stepped up to the spot and his first attempt was saved by the goalkeeper, but Mbappe stepped up and slotted home the rebound to complete his hat-trick and make it 3-2. With his ninth and 10th goals, Mbappe became the league’s leading scorer.

With three hard-earned points, second-place PSG (W21-6, D3, L1) remained within one point of leaders OGC Nice (W22-6, D4).

Meanwhile, Brest (W15-4 D3), who suffered their third defeat of the season, remained in sixth place. 토토사이트
