The dirty trick of the Brestois


By: Manu Tournoux

In the race for the Champions League, the SB29 does not intend to make the task of its potential competitors easier.

First runner-up to PSG this season after 24 days of the championship, nine points behind the Parisian leader, Stade Brestois is clearly aiming for the Champions League at the end of the year, for the first time in its history. Obviously, in such circumstances, it is difficult to keep one’s fair play. So the Bretons are not prepared to give flowers to their adversaries.

Victim of the negligence of the Professional Football League in the development of the calendars of European clubs, Lille will have to play their match of the 26e day of L1 against Brest on Sunday March 17 at 1 p.m., two and a half days after their round of 16 second leg of the Conference League against Sturm Graz.

A liability between the two clubs

Faced with a significant number of injuries currently, the Mastiffs requested the postponement of this duel to 7 p.m. That’s a gain of six hours and as much respite for the Northerners’ organizations. A request which found the approval of the broadcaster Prime Video and which the Professional Football League hardly opposes.

Yes, but to do this, it is necessary to obtain the agreement of SB29 – but the Breton management is not inclined to accept, putting forward as an argument an organization already established and commitments made to local service providers. Remember that relations are not necessarily good between the two clubs. Last season at this time, Eric Roy and Paulo Fonseca almost came to blows. The Portuguese coach of Losc had also been excluded.
