Niort vs Brest
Niort – Brest
The good results taken by the Niort in this season are somehow shaken by the latest developments with their coach Lair. He left the team previous round but returned at the Monday training, being not allowed to take part at. Is a small war between him and sportive manager Hanouna, a war who let Niort without a main coach also for this last game of the year. Overall Niort over-performed this season taking some nice results and laying on 7th spot same number of point 31 as 4th in table Lorient. They actually came after a 1-1 away at Lorient after a game with lot of tension on the pitch. Remains to see how the Lair telenovela is finishing. Top scorer Ndoh is suspended
Brest returned at the wining days after that 1-2 defeat at Lens. In last game they demolished new comer Beziers 3-0 and consolidated their second position in table, having now 5 points more than 3rd spot occupied by Lens. A very good first part of the season for Furlan’s boys, losing only 3 times in these 18 rounds (Lens, Metz and surprising defeat at Sochaux). An offensive minded team who scored the most number of goals so far, 34, having in Charbonnier the top scorer of Ligue 2 with 15 goals (same tally as Diallo) plus the high number of assists 6. Belkebla and Castelleto are suspended for this last trip from 2018, while Autret and Court are injured.
Niort proved to be dangerous this season. But without top scorer will be a bit difficult. Also Brest have some offensive minded players who are missing so perhaps we will now see too many auction. Perhaps a 0-0 candidate this round. So back under 2 ah goals.
