Europe 1 with AFP

The shock of the 27th day of Ligue 2 was not given a winner on Monday evening. Metz and Le Havre separated in a draw (1-1). Metz had opened the scoring in the first period before Richardson equalized for HAC after returning from the locker room. The Normans keep nine lengths ahead of their Bordeaux runner-up. For its part, Metz remains in 4th place.

Badly placed on the lawn of Metz, Le Havre got a draw in the second half (1-1) to chain a 25th match without defeat in the league, Monday at the end of the 27th day of Ligue 2. Still comfortable leader, Le Havre ( 56 points) take a 9-point lead over his runner-up, Bordeaux. Metz, which could have taken 2nd place in the event of a victory, remains 4th with 45 points, also ahead of Sochaux (46 points).

At the end of this day, it is a total status quo at the top of the classification since the first five have all drawn. At half-time, the Messins were virtually on the second step of the Ligue 2 podium, thanks to the opener in the 20th minute from Youssef Maziz, perfectly served by Ablie Jallow 3 meters from the Le Havre goal.

Le Havre undefeated in the league since August

But the Grenats were picked cold a few seconds after returning from the locker room by the equalizer from Richardson (46th), on a powerful strike. It then took a parade from Alexandre Oukidja to prevent Le Havre from doubling the bet on a strike from Quentin Cornette (50th). Two minutes later, the same Cornette again almost scored on a curled shot, passed just next to the Messin cages.

Metz also had the chance to regain the lead, but Youssef Maziz and Georges Mikautadze missed great chances in the second half. Le Havre has not lost in the league since moving to Valenciennes on August 6, 2022, on the second day (1-0). A series that allows the Normans to glimpse more and more concretely the rise in Ligue 1, while only two teams will be promoted this season.
