Bordeaux finally sees the end of the tunnel
Nothing has been done yet, but the Girondins de Bordeaux is ahead. At the end of an important game in the race for the Prefecture, David Guion’s men won ahead of Metz (3-1), thus inheriting last place.
However, it started poorly for the locals, who conceded the first goal half an hour before a goal from Lamkel Zee, which was well sent by De Breville (21). But Girondin, who wasn’t serious during the first season, they spent the second coming back from the locker room. Mangas (52nd), Niang (68th) and Huang (88th) let them take down Messines. The only downside is the potential withdrawal of striker Albert Ellis, who was released last week against Lille, until the end of the season.
Monaco always informed
Did AS Monaco find its cruising speed? After his convincing success at Paris Saint-Germain on March 20, everything is going for the better. Monaco beat Metz last week (1-2) and then Troy on Sunday, this time at home (2-1). Caio Henrique opened the scoring (19) but Ike Ogbo set the record straight before the first half (39), making it difficult for Philippe Clement.
The Belgian coach withdrew his Kevin Volland card before the hour mark, letting the German take over in place of Myron Boadu. The training paid off since the previous Hoffenheim scored in the seconds following a pass from Alexandre Golovin (57th place).
Thus, sixth-placed Monaco put pressure on Strasbourg (5) and Nice (4), who play in the evening.
A tough week for LOSC, who is already annoyed by Ben Arfa’s controversy. Sunday, the Mastiffs could not do better than tie in Angers (1-1) and charge the blow in the race for Europe, leaving Monaco, 6, with two points.
After a lackluster first half, the score was still zero. But everything became complicated for Jocelyn Gurvinec’s men after the break, as Portuguese defender Thiago Diallo fired the ball into his own net trying to block Angevin’s cross (64th place). A goal that forced Lille to respond: it came from Kosovo midfielder Edon Zegrova, sent by Zeki Celik (74th place). But it is still very far from expectations…
Brest and Nantes deviate from each other
There was no winner between Nantes and Brest on Sunday (1-1) but a very boiling derby was stopped in the second half due to a fight between the fans. After strong performances each against Claremont (win 2-3) and Montpellier (win 1-2) last week, Nantes and Priest were looking to advance into the poor position of the tournament.
Nantes, now eighth, got off to a good start thanks to an inevitable goal from Randall Kolo Mwany at the start of the match (10). But Brestois advanced, especially in the second half, and Brendan Chardonnet put the two teams on equal footing (67). Thus, Michel Der Zakarian’s men took the twelfth place.
