Lorient AH 0 (DNB)
#Football #Football-AH #ligue2 #Brest #Lorient
Brest had no problems in last game to overcome Valenciennes even the score was 1-1 till 75 mins. Tones of scoring opportunities for an incredible offensive Brest, who missed among other clear ones a penalty. Perhaps 5-1/6-1 for Brest would have been close to the reality. Thanks to this win Brest is 8th in table with only 51 points, 12 less than 3rd spot with only 6 rounds to go. So, almost impossible mission for Brest to be involved in the promotion race, taking in consideration great shape shown by teams placed on 2nd and 3rd spot. So for them remains to be a referee in the top and also bottom table and to play in such manner to avoid any nasty injury till the end. For this game Coeff is suspended.
Lorient is in great shape wining 5 out of 6 last games. Surprisingly they lost 1-3 at rock bottom Tours and somehow decreased their chances to catch 3rd spot. Now they have 56 points, 7 less than 3rd spot occupied by AC Ajaccio(who already played the game belonging to 33rd round). They can reduce this gap in case of an away win here. Their main problem is lack of concentration on away games especially. They lost so many points away so if they lose promotion this is the main issue. In 2018 3 wins and 3 defeat s on the road the one versus Tours being the most socking one. Coach Landreau tried to keep focused the team making some changing in the middle and upfront in most of the games. Saad and Courtet will miss for this trip.
Another tough game for Lorient. If they want to keep chances to promotion, then have no other option then a win here. They proved can beat anybody ( see the away win vs leader and promoted Reims 1-0 few rounds ago) but also lost against anybody. Against a team who have nothing to play for expect Lorient to win covering the straight win with AH0. gl
