Brest and Lille sharing


By: Manu Tournoux

No winner this Sunday between Brest and Lille (1-1, 26th day of Ligue 1) and a logical sharing of points.

On one side, the runner-up Paris Saint-Germain and on the other, the fifth in Ligue 1. Separated by only four points in the standings, the two teams faced each other this Sunday on the lawn of Francis-Le Blé. After Jonathan David opened the scoring for the visitors, Martin Satriano equalized for Brest, enough to send everyone back to back at the final whistle (1-1, 26th day). A logical score.

Defeated a week ago on the grounds of Racing Club de Lens, Stade Brestois hoped to revive at home. However, he knew that the arrival of the Mastiffs would not be an easy thing to manage. Equal in strength, the two teams proved it throughout the game. 50% possession on both sides at the end of the match, one-goal-all. Almost as many shots. The outcome seemed written.

Defeat averted

We had to wait until the hour mark was well underway to witness the opening score, signed by Jonathan David for the visitors (0-1, 67th). The Canadian striker almost doubled the lead a few minutes later, but this time he came up against Marco Bizot (70th). The opportunity had passed and Brest took the opportunity to equalize through Martin Satriano (1-1, 79th). And the score will stay there.

For Brestois and Lille, who had not won on the last day, the important thing was first of all not to lose. From this point of view, the objective has been achieved. But they will have to quickly collect more points if they do not want to be burned by the competition. In two weeks, after the international break, the Bretons will go to their neighbors Lorient, while Lille will host another direct competitor, Lens.
