PLAYER RATINGS | Lens 0-1 Brest, Brest’s stoic display and Honorat wonder goal holds off Lens

Ligue 1 21/22, Round 27 – 5/3/22

LENS – 0

Jean-Louis Leca, 4

Kevin Danso, 4

Facundo Medina, 4

Jonathan Gradit, 6

Jonathan Clauss, 6 – Not everything came off for him but he was a prominent driving force from his flank at times for Lens as his passing and deliveries generally aimed to be progressive and adventurous while he offered significant intensity to attacks.

Massadio Haïdara, 4

Cheick Doucouré, 5

Seko Fofana, 5 – Worked hard here as usual and was a main creative protagonist for Lens but he again looked tired. That’s understandable so given how hard he’s worked for so long but his game is becoming a little too hectic and imprecise. His trademark ferocious focus is waning.

Florian Sotoca, 6

Gaël Kakuta, 6

Arnaud Kalimuendo, 5

Others: Costa 6, Ganago 5, Frankowski 5, Berg 5, Machado 5.

BREST – 1 (Honorat 59)

Marco Bizot, 8 – In keeping a clean sheet he made five saves, which included some of the game’s highlights. A flying save from a powerful Clauss free-kick was the most spectacular while a close-range stop from a Sotoca volley showed his reflexes. He commanded his area with authority throughout too.

Jean-Kevin Duverne, 7

Christophe Hérelle, 6

Lilian Brassier, 6

Lucien Agoume, 7 – He’s still just 20 but Agoume has rarely lived up to promise he showed as a 17-year-old at Sochaux. However, given solid game time, at last, this season, he’s starting to flourish as a graceful sentinel. He led his team in shot creation and managed 13 defensive actions here.

Haris Belkebla, 7

Franck Honorat, 8 – Actually played at wing-back here, a position he excelled in for Saint-Etienne at times, but still managed to be Brest’s most persistent outlet while working hard defensively. His stunning winner saw him beat two men on the flank before chipping Leca. Glorious.

Jere Uronen, 5

Jérémy Le Douaron, 5

Romain Del Castillo, 4

Martin Satriano, 3

Others: Lasne 5, Mounie 5, Magnetti 5, Faussurier 5.
