Ligue 1 (28th day). Stade Brestois – Dijon: 3-1
With his unique look, low socks and high shorts tucked into the jersey, Jean Lucas, in the style of the 80s, clashes in Ligue 1. But the class of the Brazilian is elsewhere. In a right foot that delivered two assists, Wednesday, in an ultra-important game in the fight for maintenance. In a madness to contain sometimes, again, like this pass of the chest lost in its 35 meters, without danger, finally. This is one of the reasons that pushed Lyon, which believes in its long-term potential, to lend it this winter. To gain in playing time, of course, but also to purify a palette that could take him far in his career.
Used in number 10 position in Monaco on Sunday in a 4-3-3, Jean Lucas fell a notch against Dijon, in a 4-4-2, associated with Paul Lasne. Haris Belkebla, never replacing this season, has paid the price. An attractive novelty that allowed the 22-year-old Brazilian to take the light, even if he died in the second half, not far from being transparent at times, probably not yet 90 minutes in the legs.
