The Red Star's bad patch continues.
The reception of Saint-Brieuc ended with a 0-1 defeat for the Ile-de-France residents with a goal from Rafiki Said Ahamada at the end of the match.
Since its heroic victory against RC Lens on March 6, the Saint-Ouen club has won only one match in seven (2-0 victory against Créteil on March 13) and has four draws as well as a second defeat against Avranches.
In the standings, the Red Star is now sixth just behind his opponent of the day but still has one game less.
⏱ It's over at Bauer.
The Red Star lost at home 1-0 to @StadeBriochin.

Next meeting against Olympique Lyonnais
It's a double-edged sword encounter for the Red Star.
Thursday, the Ile-de-France club receives Lyon on behalf of the last round of 16 of the Coupe de France.
A sizeable challenge, even inaccessible, which could sink the team currently in a dull period in National.
However, this match could on the contrary be an opportunity to revive against the fourth in Ligue 1 by winning a prestigious victory.
Coupe de France🇫🇷
Red Star (N) qualified for the 8th Coupe de France by winning against RC Lens thanks to a goal from Dzabana at the very end of the match!

By winning in the final seconds against the Lensois in the previous round thanks to an epic goal from Alan Dzabana, the Red Star ticks all the criteria of the famous "little club" that the Coupe de France regularly brings out.
Against Lyonnais a little less fit in recent weeks and who have been in great difficulty against Lens on Saturday night, the Red Star could once again create the feat thanks to the "extra soul" that characterizes the outsiders of the Coupe de France in the major events of the competition.
Still in contact with the podium occupied by Lille, PSG and Monaco, Olympique Lyonnais is now fourth in the standings.
This position would deprive the club of participation in the next Champions League, the goal posted at the start of the season after the sad seventh place of the previous season.
As a reminder, the Coupe de France offers its winner a qualification for the next Europa League.
National: the Red Star no longer knows how to win and stagnates
