Bordeaux-Bruges-Lormont condemned to win in Valencia

And that’s what the men of Philippe Gardent and Benoît Peyrabout achieved with a perfect month of September with four wins in as many games. A BBL in overdrive? No, apart from the surprise success at Tremblay, the team won its three other meetings against the bad students of this first part of the season, Massy, ​​Villeurbanne and Cherbourg.

Three losses at home

This beautiful sequence ended with the visit of Pontault-Combault, declared candidate for accession to Starligue. The Parisian commuters won 32-30 and Jean Dauguet’s fortress cracked afterwards as the BBL then lost against Nancy and Billère. Three home defeats in five games is a lot. Even if the hazards did not spare the group since, one after the other, Mathieu Vigneron and captain Xavier Moreau were victims of a serious knee injury and they will be unavailable until the end of the season.

Fortunately, even diminished, the team was able to react in a good way by going to snatch two precious successes outside in Strasbourg then in Dijon. Thus, Bordeaux-Bruges-Lormont won more often away from its bases with 4 wins against only 2 at home. Suffice to say that Antoine Gutfreund and his partners are condemned to win in Valencia, this Friday evening.

Faced with a formation from Drôme which has not yet tasted victory, the opportunity is good to garner two additional points to erase the setback suffered against Billère’s neighbors (23-22) and above all to stay in the peloton of head.
