Brest eased past Bordeaux in a 2-1 victory on Sunday at the Matmut Atlantique Stadiums. Bordeaux arrived with the intention of increasing their league score following a disappointing 3-3 draw with FC Metz in their previous game. Brest were hoping to increase their winning streak after back-to-back victories against RC Lens and FC Lorient. As the table looks today, Bordeaux and Brest currently occupy 17th and 12th spots in the league, with 13 points and 18 points respectively after 15 matches.

Les Girondins dominated the first half, with Stian Gregersen finding the net just before half-time

Brest continued to apply pressure in the second and were rewarded, thanks to a goal from Jeremy Le Douaron in the 60th minute. They then scored again, increasing their advantage thanks to a 2nd effort from Jeremy Le Douaron at the 66 minute mark with a final score of 2-1.

Both coaches used the full entitlement. For Bordeaux, Mbaye Niang, Hwang Ui-Jo, Fransergio, Jimmy Briand and Gideon Mensah, came on for Javairo Dilrosun, Remi Oudin, Otavio, Yacine Adli and Ricardo Mangas, Brest brought on Irvin Cardona, to replace Jeremy Le Douaron.

There were bookings for Timothee Pembele, Edson Mexer and Mbaye Niang from Bordeaux. For Brest, Brendan Chardonnet saw yellow.

Bordeaux will play away against RC Strasburg, while Brest will face Saint-Étienne at home.
