5 things to remember from Brest’s loss to Lyon (4-2)

by admin

For its return to competition after the truce, Stade Brestois hosted Olympique Lyonnais this Tuesday evening during the 16th day of Ligue 1. Largely dominated by the Gones, the Ty-Zefs lost (2-4) and relapsed at the same time in the red zone.

Olympique Lyonnais dictates the start of the match

As expected, the Brestois left possession of the ball to the visitors in the first minutes of the game. If the Gones were dangerous enough, the defense of Ty-Zefs and Marco Bizot answered present. Limited in the offensive phase, the locals were content with a few opportunities on the counter, but nothing serious to worry Anthony Lopes. And by dint of suffering, the Finistère rearguard ended up cracking. Maxence Caqueret, who was free from any marking in the area, took advantage of a millimeter cross from Alexandre Lacazette to open the scoring (0-1, 21st). The evening was announced to be difficult for the partners of Franck Honorat.

The Ty-Zefs equalize quickly…

Then led to the score and in the obligation to play the game, the players of Stade Brestois showed a completely different face by chaining the phases of possession. Steve Mounié initially missed a big chance when he was alone in front of goal. Then a few minutes later, it was Mathias Pereira Lage who first distinguished himself with a strike at the entrance to the Lyon area before equalizing with a distant free kick deflected by the wall (1-1, 29th ). Thanks to this goal which came to materialize a highlight, the Bretons were back in the game, even if the hope did not last long.

…before sinking in the space of three minutes

Unfortunately, the Rhodaniens have put a new boost which completely destabilized the men of Julien Lachuer. In very good shape, Maxence Caqueret pierced the Brest midfielder and sent a very good ball to Rayan Cherki who came to mystify the Finistère goalkeeper (1-2, 32nd). In the aftermath, the score increased as OL benefited from a penalty converted by their captain Alexandre Lacazette (1-3, 35th). The course of the meeting was then completely reversed in just a few minutes. Overwhelmed, Stade Brestois showed nothing until the break.

An interesting reaction in the second half

Back from the locker room, nothing seemed to work out for the locals who conceded a fourth goal scored by Tetê (1-4, 49th). However, they delivered a much more successful second period from a collective point of view. With a lot of rhythm and a powerful Romain Del Castillo, the Bretons have created many striking positions. Following a corner, Steve Mounié even gave hope to the supporters who came in large numbers to Francis Le Blé (2-4, 72nd).

Stade Brestois back in the red zone

Brest, however, failed to close the significant gap between the two teams and finally lost quite logically (4-2). A result that hurts in accounting terms since the teammates of Haris Belkebla relapse to 17th place in Ligue 1 and are one point behind Nantes, the first non-relegation team. They will have to move forward quickly in order to hope for a positive result in Monaco (5th) this Saturday, even if we know it will be a difficult match.
