Saint-Etienne registered a 2-1 win against Brest on Saturday thanks to a brace from young midfielder Mahdi Kamara. The Greens are temporarily leaving the relegation zone and giving themselves some fresh air ahead of next weekend’s game of fear against Bordeaux.
The Greens signed a great operation at Geoffroy-Guichard, winning 2-1 against Stade Brestois this Saturday, and came out of the red zone. Pascal Dupraz’s men were able to show formidable efficiency in front of the goal, with two goals from a corner by Mahdi Kamara, who had until then been kept out of the professional group because of a fight with a player from reserve at the start. ,
Mahdi Kamara MVP
Saint-Etienne was however surprised in the 8th minute by a flash of talent from Franck Honorat, who recovered the ball, hooked the defender and scored with a powerful strike and showered the local sun-drenched Geoffroy-Guichard stadium (0 -1, 8th ) Passed by the ASSE between 2019 and 2020, the Brest striker opted not to celebrate his goal. While Brest pushes to make the break, Mahdi Cameras finally equalizes from a corner, is left alone at the far post (1-1, 14th), and wakes up the entire Cauldron. Pardoned by Pascal Dupraz just before the meeting, the 23-year-old eventually gives his coach a reason to keep him despite his behavioral deviations.
The players themselves gradually fall asleep, retreating further towards their goal. Wahbi Khajri blew the first wind (25th) of the rebellion. He was followed well by Denis Bouanga (37th) before Mahdi Kamara signed his double in just fifteen minutes at a new corner, turning the Greens’ afternoon into a dream (2-1, 39th).

Stopped by Bizzot. Mouni and Honrat’s efforts aren’t enough to tremble the local supporters, who are already singing at the top of their lungs before the final whistle.
