Ligue 1: Brest overthrows Saint-Étienne and sees the maintenance

Saint-Etienne Brest
The Brestois carried out a very good operation for the end of the season by winning Geoffroy-Guichard against AS Saint-Etienne.

AS Saint-Étienne received Brest on Saturday April 24 in a duel between two teams in search of their maintenance in Ligue 1. Very solid in the second half, the Bretons won 2-1 against the Stéphanois in this second match of the 34th Ligue 1 day. Brest took the opportunity to overtake its opponent of the day in the standings. With 40 points in his pocket, the support is very close for Olivier Dall’Oglio’s men.

If the sun shone in Geoffroy-Guichard this Saturday, it was not for Saint-Étienne. Leading the scoreboard thanks to a quick goal from Wahbi Khazri (11th), his sixth in the last six matches, the Greens then stumbled against well-established Brestois. Little by little, Olivier Dall’Oglio’s players started to gain a foothold in this match.

Stéphane goalkeeper Étienne Green delayed the deadline by releasing a strike from Gaëtan Charbonnier (20th), one of his five saves of the day, symbol of a new promising performance from the young goalkeeper (20).

But the man of the match at Geoffroy-Guichard was Gaëtan Charbonnier. The striker allowed his teammate to leave Forez with three important points. Scorer on a nice free kick (66th), the 32-year-old striker doubled the bet with a curled shot at the far post (79th), in Green’s small net, after inflicting a small bridge on Harold Moukoudi.

Two goals from Charbonnier which put an end to the series of ten consecutive defeats of the Brestois away. The Bretons go back to 13th place in Ligue 1 and are getting closer to maintaining.

At the microphone of Canal + at the end of the game, the double scorer of the day was still cautious about the end of the season for his team: “We have made a big step but there are still four matches, we will have to improve the points we managed to take here”. A mission that will begin next Sunday against Nantes, relegation.
