One thing is certain, this meeting between Stade Brestois and Lille will certainly not go down in history, but the Ty-Zefs nevertheless went for a good point (0-0) against Dogs lacking teeth.
First clean sheet for Bizot
He had to wait for his 17th game of the season to finally sign his first clean sheet of the season. Very serious as usual, Marco Bizot for once was able to rely on a fairly reassuring defense which did not concede a significant number of chances. We hope that this solidity will be confirmed over the next few weeks against Toulouse and Angers.
Better in the second half
In very great difficulty in the game during the first 45 minutes, the Bretons were able to raise their level after the break. With more desire and movement, they created some interesting opportunities like Steve Mounié’s diving header which crashed into the crossbar of the Lille goalkeeper. The locals could even have benefited from a penalty, but the referee decided otherwise. In the end, they will never have shot on target throughout the game. A big problem to solve, especially since the defense for once held perfectly.
A good point for Eric Roy and Stade Brestois
On a negative dynamic in the Championship with two defeats against Lyon and Monaco, Stade Brestois obtained a good draw against Lille. However, Eric Roy’s proteges remain confined to 17th place in Ligue 1 and will still have to score important points to get out of the red zone.
No shots on target in the first act
If we had to remember only one word from the first period of Stade Brestois, it would be harmless. Archi-dominated in ball control (26% possession for Brest), the Ty-Zefs have never been able to get closer to the opposing cage. They therefore only struck once and the ball went well above Lucas Chevalier’s goal. On the positive side, the Finistère defense often decried since the start of the season nevertheless managed to keep its clean sheet.
Pereira Lage’s injury
The former Clermontois who was already uncertain for the meeting due to ankle pain unfortunately picked up an injury in a duel after returning from the locker room. His unavailability could be quite substantial since he did not even manage to put his foot on the ground to get out of the field and give way to Jérémy Le Douaron. An absence of size for Stade Brestois which is added to that of Romain Del Castillo.
