    • 90' FT: Paris SG 3-1 Brest. Thoughts on this one? Any views on David Beckham and his career? Let's hear them.
    • 90' Three minutes added.
    • 88' Sub Benschop with another fine effort there. He cut inside on to his right-foot but hit the side-netting.
    • 87' The game fizzling away now in the final few minutes. Paris SG set to celebrate the championship and I'm sure Beckham will be the centre of appreciation.
    • 81' What a send off. Well done David Beckham. An absolute legend. He will be replaced by Lavezzi.
    • 80' GOAL! PSG 3-1 Brest (Benschop)
    • 78' It's another tame effort from Brest. David Beckham already in tears as he prepares to leave the pitch for the last time.
    • 78' SUB: Ba off; Deschop on.
    • 77' Chafni decides NOT to shoot this time. Instead, he lays the ball to Licka who fires wide.
    • 74' Zlatan Ibrahimovic is eyeing up his 30th of the season if he can score again tonight. He'll certainly be itching to reach that.
    • 70' SUB: Khaled on; Rapsentino off.
    • 65' Dangerous footwork from Chafni who forces a parry from Areola. Good play from Brest and almost 3-1.
    • 63' First save really for sub-keeper Areola and he collects comfortably from Grougi.
    • 61' SUB: Dieng off; Chardonnet on.
    • 60' CLOSE! Good block from Thebaux to stop Kevin Gameiro adding a fourth to the scoreline.
    • 58' David Beckham with an excellent cross in from deep for Kevin Gameiro who glanced his header wide. I blame the dodgy hair colours!
    • 57' Little happening in this second half. PSG are really comfortable and could go on to score four or five tonight.
    • 47' SUB: Sirigu off; Areola on.
    • 45' SUB: Chantome off; Lucas on.
    • 45' And here we go for the second-half. It's PSG shooting from left-to-right.
    • 45' HT: PSG 3-0 Brest (Ibrahimovic x2, Matiudi)
    • 43' Chafni again at the heart of all things positive for Brest. He was denied a spot-kick seconds ago and stings the palms of Sirigu.
    • 41' Ibrahimovic comes within inches of his hat-trick. Great control, balance and a dinked effort wide of the top corner. Good effort.
    • 38' Good wing-play from Raspentino again on the left-flank and he crosses for Ba, but well defended by Sakho.
    • 36' Ibrahimovic beats David Beckham to taking the free-kick and boy, doesn't he upstage him? Stunning effort. It's 3-0 and party time in Paris.
    • 35' GOAL! PSG 3-0 Brest. Wow! Absolutely stunning from Ibrahimovic.
    • 30' GOAL! PSG 2-0 Brest. It's a David Beckham corner-kick, perfectly hit, which is met by Blaise Matiudi at the penalty spot who volleys home.
    • 27' Even Argentinian midfielder Javier Pastore has adopted the French tricolor style with his glowing locks and facial hair.
    • 23' Excellent right-hand from Sirigu to save from Ba's long-range drive. That was very close to a Brest equaliser. Some good stuff from the bottom-side.
    • 22' Good challenge from Lesoimier to concede a corner-kick. Ibrahimovic was looking as threatening as always on the turn.
    • 21' OH! We had a David Beckham free-kick. It was a pretty poor effort from Becksy though. Not even close, actually.
    • 19' Another fine move from Brest who are competing well. It came out to Licka who scuffed his effort wide.
    • 14' The basement boys are enjoying a decent spell of pressure here. They're resorting to long-distance efforts that aren't really testing Sirigu, though. This time Raspentino has a shot.
    • 13' And another smart save from Sirigu to deny Chafni again from long-range. This seems like an interesting head-to-head. Something has to give ...
    • 12' PSG keeper Sirigu was scrambling across his goal to try and deny Chafni from scoring. That was a sweetly-struck effort from the Brest midfielder. It went wide, though ...
    • 10' Remember: Brest are already relegated from Ligue 1. They will want to go out on a high-note tonight and spoil the PSG party.
    • 8' From @optajean - David Beckham is the 7th different player to wear the captain's armband for Paris SG this season.
    • 5' And Zlatan nearly made it 2-0. Thebaux reacted quickly and came out of his goal to deny the striker.
    • 4' The Swede took the ball in with his back to goal on the edge of the box, he spun emphatically into space and drilled low into the net. A superb goal.
    • 4' GOAL! PSG 1-0 Brest. Guess who? It's Zlatan Ibrahimovic.
    • 2' Nice little move from the away side. It was Chafni who couldn't keep the ball in play, but nevertheless, an encouraging start for Brest.
    • 1' Early touch for Sirigu in the PSG goal, collecting comfortably from a Brest set-piece.
    • 0' The French champions kick off this match ...
    • 19:57 Minutes from kick-off tonight in Paris. The players are sporting French-coloured facial hair tonight, bizarrely. I'm not sure red-white-blue beards will take off ...
    • 19:46 TEAMS - PSG: Sirigu, Jallet, Camara, Sakho, Tiene, Beckham, Matuidi, Chantome, Pastore, Gameiro, Ibrahimovic... Subs: Areola, Alex, Maxwell, Armand, Verratti, Lucas, Lavezzi /// Brest: Thebaux, Makonda, Dieng, Grougi, Soumah, Raspentino, Lesoimier, Chafni, Sissoko, Licka, Ba...
