Bourg-Peronnas vs Brest by Lucien
Seventh round for the French Ligue 2. This game will not be played to physical stadium of Bourg-Peronnas but to stade Jean Laville, just cause their stadium is not ready for the league standards. Bourg-Peronnas won last week away to Tours (0:1), a very important result although it was a match without many action for both teams. The guests managed to get the victory with a goal from striker Lakdar Boussaha and to the second half they just defended. There was lot of ugly fouls there, many yellow cards in the second half and a second yellow for Jummy Nirlo, anyway, Bourg-Peronnas survived and left the stadium with all three points.
Now with ten points in six games Bourg-Peronnas are in an exceptional condition, although they started the season with two defeats. They are unbeaten in the last four games with three victories and a draw. They are looking quite strong when they are playing at home, although they are not using their stadium, while to both of their last two home victories the score was high, both Over 2,5 goals and both teams scored. Only defensive midfielder Jimmy Nirlo is suspended and will miss the game, otherwise Bourg-Peronnas has no other problems to deal with. Boussaha and Sane will play in front line, with Dimitriou and Berthomier to the wings.
Brest managed to win at home over Lens (2:1) in a quite unpredictable game. The hosts got ahead to the score at the end of the first half with a goal from Kevin Koubemba while Lens replied to the first ten minutes of the second half with Jonathan Nanizayamo. The second half fully belonged to Brest and they scored the winner with Christian Battocchio. Koubemba had an amazing game, he scored another goal, provided an assist to Battocchio to the second goal, and generally seems that he is a player that will help a lot in front line for Brest.
Generally Brest is in a good condition too. In six games in the league they count three wins, two draws and just one defeat, but they still did not won a game away from home, with two draws and a defeat. Good news for Brest as defensive midfielder Eric Tie Bi returns to the main eleven after suspension, while defensive midfielder Manuel Perez is doubtful.
Bourg-Peronnas facing their home games different than they are playing away. Now they need to create the game and generally proved so far that they are playing open when they are at home. Brest is in a good condition too, and they need to start getting victories away from home. I think that this will be an open game with more than two goals.
