This Sunday, the Stade Brestois moved on the lawn of Monaco during the 17th day of Ligue 1. Inoffensive during most of the meeting, the Ty-Zefs lost (1-0) and are still in the red zone .
Del Castillo’s injury
Involved in 40% of his team’s goals since the start of the season, Romain Del Castillo has undoubtedly been one of the strong men of the Brest attack since the start of the season and he showed it again this week during the defeat against Lyon (4–2). But unfortunately, he only played twelve short minutes against Monaco before asking for the change by holding his thigh. We hope he will return quickly since the Ty-Zefs will certainly need him in the race for maintenance.
No shot on target in the first half
Dominated by the locals at the start of the match, the Bretons failed to project themselves into the opposing camp. The fault in particular with significant technical inaccuracies and a lack of movement forward screaming. Franck Honorat was totally absent from the debates while Islam Slimani did his best to weigh on the defense of ASM. At the break, Julien Lachuer’s men had only struck once. A total far too low to endanger Alexander Nübel.
A lack of aggressiveness in defense
She held for almost an hour before finally giving in. Constantly in difficulty, the defense of Stade Brestois showed laxity by allowing the Monegasques to make their attacking talent speak. And if Marco Bizot multiplied the parades, he was not invincible. Following yet another foray into the Finistère 20 meters, Aleksandr Golovin unblocked the situation by sending the ball into the opposite side netting (1-0, 55th).
Bizot postponed the deadline for Stade Brestois
The Dutch goalkeeper was once again one of the best, if not the best Brestois on the lawn. He made three important saves in the first half to allow his team to return to the locker room with a goalless draw. Serious and concentrated, Marco Bizot could not do anything on the very beautiful strike of Aleksandr Golovin. A frustrating goal since despite his very good game, the Stade Brestois goalkeeper still does not have a single clean sheet this season.
Interesting reaction at the end of the match
Disappointing for most of the game, the Ty-Zefs woke up following the opening of the opposing score. With a lot more desire, they created multiple opportunities from set pieces, but also in the game. Steve Mounié even found the crossbar with his head. But this reaction was well and truly too late to hope for an equalizer.
