Brest – Beziers
Unbeaten series of 12 undefeated games came to an end last round when Brest lost 1-2 away at Lens. Was a game with 2 different halves: first one belonging to Lens who took a comfortable 2-0 lead and the other one belonging to Brest who only scored once in the end of the game thanks to Charbonier but not enough for stay unbeaten. Was a nice game with Lens fully deserved the win. They are now 3 points behind the Metz but still have 3 points more than 3rd spot occupied by Lens. They played also in the cup wining hard against Vannes, Castelleto being sent off early in the game and will miss this game.
Beziers is still the single team without a win on their own pitch. In the new promoted teams derby versus Grenoble, they clearly lost 0-3 after one of the poorest game this season. They were outplayed by Grenoble especially in 2nd half when conceded all games in a gap of 20 mins, being incapable to do something on the score table. But don’t forget they remains one of the most dangerous team when playing on the road, Beziers taking 5 wins away from home, scoring 10 goals but also conceding 10. Still without Atassi – injured.
Beziers is dangerous on the road, but when playing against top teams they failed often. Brest must recover after the defeat versus Lens and I see them taking a new home win. Back Brest -1ah. gl
