Sochaux vs Brest
Sochaux – Brest
Really didn't see the win of Sochaux at AC Ajaccio coming. After 2 unconvincing games, both lost 0-1, Sochaux traveled in Corsica for a way hard game compared with previous ones but survived and took a nice win. Of course at this win AC Ajaccio defenders had plenty of contribution but Sochaux players has the merit they took fully advantages of this gifts. And now they are with a positive morale in front of this game. Using about half of usual starters ( 6) Sochaux were knocked out by same Brest at penalties in the first stage of Coupe de la Ligue. Was 1-1 after 90 minutes, Sochaux leveling thanks to an own goal with 15 minutes to go. Budkivsky suffered an injury and is doubtful for this game.
Difficult start of the season is continuing for Brest. After Metz, Troyes and Paris FC in first 3 rounds now they are traveling at Sochaux for 2nd consecutive game in 3 days against this opponent. After this, same scenario, as Brest will meet LeHavre twice next week (once in Coupe de la Ligue) and then Auxerre. But so far they are doing well, after first round defeat 0-1 vs Metz, they took 4 points plus a qualification in second round in Coupe de la Ligue ( Furlan made a lot of rotation in the squad, keeping only 5 starters versus Sochaux). Offensive minded def. Faussurier is injured again so will miss for sure some addition good crosses to top scorer Charbonier (who scored all Brest goals from championship so far – 3).
No teams news till this stage – something strange. Anyway perhaps another balanced game between two decent teams and perhaps we will see another draw. gl
