Struggling Brest lose at Stade du Hainaut after goals from Dossevi and Mater.
10′ [1 – 0] M. Dossevi
45′ [2 – 0] R. Mater
90′ [2 – 1] F. Raspentino
Brest remained just two points clear of Ligue 1’s relegation zone after losing 2-1 to Valenciennes at the Stade du Hainaut.
First-half goals from Mathieu Dossevi after ten minutes and Rudy Mater in first-half stoppage time were enough to secure a win that leaves VA 10th in the table.
Charlison Benschop hit the post for visitors Brest in the second half but they had only Florian Raspentino’s last-minute goal for consolation.
