Thunderous return for Larsonneur
He had not played since the draw in Strasbourg (2-2) on February 3. After four tenure from Sébastien Cibois, the last of which was tarnished by two big mistakes against Lyon (3-2 defeat), Gautier Larsonneur regained his place in the Brest goals in Monaco. And the Conquétois achieved a great match: a penalty (whistled for a hand from Perraud) stopped against Ben Yedder in the first half (30 ‘), kicks against the same Ben Yedder (46’), but also Diop (56 ‘) and Aguilar (58’)… A few moments before conceding the goal of Jovetic (76 ‘), on which he can not do much, he still makes a superb parade on a header from Maripan (75 ‘), just after being vigilant in front of Jovetic (74’). Despite the loss, he scored valuable points.
The defense (almost) held the shock
Plagued by big mistakes in the first half against Lyon, Olivier Dall’Oglio’s team held out for a long time, this time against the Monegasque assaults. Although more open and richer in opportunities, the match was able to resemble the one played in Lille two weeks ago (0-0), or the one won against ASM in the first leg (1-0). But this time, the defense did not hold out until the end. The Brest coach had made a strong choice by establishing Brassier, rather than the former captain Duverne, to compensate for the absence of Hérelle. It is the young defender on loan from Rennes who is put in difficulty by Jovetic on the first goal.
As a result of the choice to leave the ball to the Monegasques, Brest had very few opportunities on the lawn of Louis-II. In the first period, apart from a strike from Mounié, finally out of play, following a breakthrough by Lasne (18 ‘), and an off-target recovery from the Beninese striker at the far post (32’), the Brestois did not show up. in the offensive phase.
After the opening of the Monegasque score, the men of Dall’Oglio, who brought in simultaneously Charbonnier and Cardona (72 ‘), tried more but did not really worry Lecomte, who only felt a slight thrill on a free kick just next to Jean Lucas (83 ‘), who will shoot another, yet very well placed, in the wall, a few moments later (86’).
