National: the Red Star and Créteil continue to sink

The day after Chambly’s defeat at Bourg-en-Bresse (3-1), Thursday in the advanced match of the 14th day, the Red Star and Créteil both experienced the same misfortune on Friday. The Red Star is 15th and Créteil 17th. It begins to be urgent, but before returning to the championship, the two teams will try to think about their wounds in the Coupe de France among amateur teams. The Red Star will go to Gazélec Ajaccio (N3) and Créteil in Sarrebourg (N3).

What you must remember

For this trip to Sète, Habib Beye, the coach of the Red Star had abandoned his defense to three to return to a 4-4-2 with in particular the return of Younès Ghabaoui who had not been aligned since the 1st day, on the left side. The Audoniens had an excellent first period rewarded with a goal from Cheikh Ndoye. In passing Damien Durand delivers his 7th assist of the season (0-1, 22nd). The Red Star seems to have the game in hand against the Sétois, a little on restraint. But he will gradually lose the thread after the equalization of Sbai (1-1, 56th). After a big parade on the head of Celestine (78th), Paul Charruau is completely holed up by missing his release with both fists, an error benefiting Jamouni, who slips the ball into the empty goal (2-1, 81st). On the last corner Charruau goes up, but Meissa Ba’s shot is blocked (90th + 2).

For his part, Creteil was not unworthy, especially in the first period, against Annecy, runner-up to leader Bourg-en-Bresse. Cheick Fantamady Diarra, dried in the area would have been able to benefit from a penalty (22nd). But just before half-time, the recovery of Kashi finds the skylight of Riffi Mandanda (0-1, 43rd). At the end of the match, the head of Belkouche passes just above (80th). Créteil remains penultimate. Behind the scenes, the club is active. Helder Esteves, former scorer for Lusitanos Saint-Maur and Créteil is back at the club as a sports coordinator, after having been a trainer in… Annecy and Thonon-Evian.

The player: Cheikh Ndoye

The Red Star captain scored his 4th goal of the season and showed a lot of impact in midfield. We have also seen him harangue and encourage his partners a lot. But it is he who loses the ball at the start of the action which leads to the Sétoise equalizer.

The number: 4

The number of consecutive losses of the Red Star since the appointment of Habib Beye as official coach. Since replacing Vincent Bordot, his record has been two successes, one draw and five losses in the league.
