Amiens-Reims was postponed due to heavy fog but elsewhere, the attackers saw the light. Just before PSG – Nantes this Wednesday night, thirteen goals have flourished in the four meetings of this second half of the sixteenth day.
Monaco pushes Toulouse
Leonardo Jardim breathes. By winning in Toulouse (2-1), his players get a little air and at the same time allow their coach, in the hot seat, to live a week a little more serene. Ben Yedder opened the scoring with a penalty (5th), before Sanogo equalized, also on penalty (40th). On an overflow of the French international, Martins, at the back post, pushes in the goal and offers success to the Monegasques. He is on the brink of achieving the double but misses his shot (90 + 5). Toulouse, on his side, much too friable, remains red lantern and does not seem able to raise the head.
The festival of the Greens
It did not take long for Geoffroy-Guichard to warm up. Bouanga (11th, 58th) Hamouma (38th) and Fofana (40th) played the gunners and offered the success of Saint-Etienne in front of Nice (4-1), barely disturbed by the reduction of Dolberg (15th). After a very dull European campaign, concluded last week by an elimination of the Europa League, Stéphanois responded by showing a very attractive face. They are back in fifth place while the Nice, who record a sixth loss in rank outside, continue to tumble (14th).
The two faces of Montpellier
The Hérault were strangely extinct and conceded a draw against Dijon (2-2). In a thrilling match, the first period was in favor of the players of Der Zakarian, who however failed to get away despite their domination and goals of Mollet (15th) and Savanier (29th) . It was without counting a goal against a goal against his camp of Sambia, 2nd). The Burgundians woke up in the second half when their opponents fell asleep. Result: Mavididi snatched a draw after a corner (73). Montpellier missed a great opportunity to get closer to the podium.
The good tactics of Rennes
The Rennais were content to play against and the tactics smiled at Metz where they won (1-0) with a goal from Hunou (39th). The striker came out at the far post on a Del Castillo center and scored flat foot. Messins, too clumsy, especially when approaching the cages, have never seemed in position to really worry the players of Julien Stephan, now seventh in the standings.
