National: winner at Cholet, the Red Star joins Bastia in the lead

A huge blow. The Red Star won (2-0) in Cholet in the shock of the dolphins of SC Bastia this Saturday during a match shifted from the 14th day of the National. A success that allows Vincent Bordot’s team to join the Corsicans, beaten on Friday at the red lantern SC Lyon (2-0) at the top of the National. The Red Star is just ahead in the particular goal average by SC Bastia who came to win 5-3 at Bauer at the start of the season.

What you must remember

The Red Star has remained in the tradition of its good last performances. Vincent Bordot could count on several important returns such as that of Paul Charruau in the goal and those of the suspended, Sainte-Luce, Sivis and Bizet. On his right side, the indefatigable Maxime Sivis notably made a big performance. Overall, the Red Star mastered the game pretty well. On a corner from Jimmy Roye, Hamadou Karamoko first scored his first goal of the season (0-1, 25th). And after several narrowly missed break points, Damien Durand put his team permanently away (0-2, 74th) thanks to a new personal feat. The complicated start to the season which had even weakened Bordot’s position is now forgotten. The Red Star, who had opted for a very Ile-de-France recruitment but then made the financial efforts to recruit Senegalese international Cheikh Ndoye (salary of € 5,000) at the beginning of October, is now well on the way up.

The player: Damien Durand

The revelation of this start to the National season has struck again. The explosive 25-year-old eccentric midfielder, who arrived from Sainte-Geneviève (N2), scored his 7th goal of the season (for 3 assists) on a new personal achievement. Starting along the sideline, Durand transplanted into the axis by catching Cholet defender Baldé cold before rolling his shot with his right foot into the top corner of Mandrea. Already followed by several clubs of L2 and abroad, the former host in town hall who was still evolving in … N3 in Les Ulis two years ago, is currently in negotiations with his leaders to extend his contract.

The number: 5

This clash opposed the two teams in current form (3 wins, 1 draw). It was therefore the Red Star who continued their unbeaten streak with a fifth unbeaten game.
