Ligue 1 (28th day). Stade Brestois – Dijon: 3-1
1. Honorat, Mounié and Cardona get away from it all
On the front of the Brest attack, they surrender blow for blow! In the victory against Dijon, the three best Brest scorers in Ligue 1 each scored an achievement on Wednesday. Franck Honorat was the first to draw. Starting along the sideline, he showed his speed and efficiency by adjusting Racioppi (1-0, 16 ‘). His eighth goal in Ligue 1, better than all his other teammates … Until Irvin Cardona, after an inspiration from Jean Lucas, goes from his goal (3-0, 39 ‘) and comes back to the height of the winger. Meanwhile, Steve Mounié had approached the duo by taking a cross with a beautiful header and now has seven goals in the league (2-0, 26 ‘). Impossible to predict which of the three will end up the club’s top scorer at the end of the season …
2. From inspiration to management
In a first open period where both teams were ambitious, the attacks took precedence over the defenses. Especially that of Brest, creative and inspired, which, apart from the three goals scored, repeatedly brought danger to the Burgundian goal. Like this header from Cardona on a cross from Faussurier (5 ‘) or Mounié with a shot that was finally too crossed (23’). Conversely, on a ball badly returned by Chardonnet, Assalé deceived Larsonneur at close range (2-1, 30 ‘). The second period, less pleasant, saw the Finistériens retreat and manage, while the Dijonnais tried to return to the score, without being particularly dangerous.
3. The SB29 takes its distance
In the standings, the victory acquired against the red lantern of Ligue 1 is a breath of fresh air for Olivier Dall’Oglio’s men. The Bretons are back in the middle of the table and are now 19 points ahead of their evening opponent as well as nine over Nîmes, beaten in Nice. One more step towards staying in the top flight, while there are still ten days to play before the end of the season.
