Brest vs Tours
Brest – Tours
After a slow start in 2018 with no win in first 6 rounds ( 4 draws and 2 defeats) Brest took finally 2 consecutive wins after conceding. Was a 2-0 versus a team in poor shape Niort and a “hold-up” in last game on the road versus promotion contender Paris FC 1-0 with a goal scored in 93rd minute on counter attack. Perhaps a 0-0 would have been more equitable score, keeping in mind Paris FC were dominating side almost all the game. And with these 6 points they are now 4 points behind 3rd spot and once again involved in the promotion battle. And don’t forget Brest have perhaps the most affordable schedule till the end in these 11 rounds till the end will meet only 2 real promotion contenders Nimes and Lorient ( cause I doubt Clermont and Chateauroux, despite their good run, will be fully involved in promotion battle). Coeff will miss here.
For Tours, I guess all are finished now. With only 11 points they are by far rock bottom and virtual relegated in National. Despite numerous players came in here in the winter break Tours didn’t turn back the fate in their favor taking only 6 points in these 7 rounds played in 2018. A fortnight ago they troubled Nimes finishing 2-2 after being down 0-2 at some point in game, leveling with a 91 mins goal scored by Diarra ( ehh..finally he scored) but was Nimes fault to not keep the result till the end than a good Tours evolutions. Another draw came after this 2-2, this time at home versus an affordable team as Orleans. And with result, I think, decreased dramatically they chances for a “remontada” Tours being 13 points behind play-off with 11 rounds to go and with mixed schedule. Slim chances though to believe keeping in mind they will play in the coming rounds versus relegation threatened teams as Bourg Peronnas, GFC Ajaccio, Quevilly and Nancy but, isn’t it? Also these teams hope to take points versus Tours.
Tours was too weak on the road so far with 10 defeats and 3 draws so far. Against a team who will try to stay close to the top teams and with a low morale I don’t see Tours making a good game here. So back home team to win in style. Brest – 1 ah is my choice. gl
