- Ligue 1 (10th day)
- 1. Stade Brestois: Omnipresent counterfeiter
- 2. Stade Brestois: Mounié, the control tower
- 3. FC Lorient: dribbled by Marseille
- 4. Stade Rennais: Traoré and Martin, without waste
- 5. EA Guingamp: Carnot, a strike, a goal!
Usual replacement for Ronaël Pierre-Gabriel, Julien Faussurier occupied the right lane of the defense of Stade Brestois, during the draw conceded against Reims, Sunday (1-1). And it is an understatement to say that the game has leaned to the right, since the former Troyen, established by Michel Der Zakarian due to the suspension of “RPG”, touched 101 balls. More than any other Brestois on the meeting.
Player who wins the most aerial duels in the top flight, Brest striker Steve Mounié was still very valuable in this role on Sunday. The 27-year-old Beninese, scorer this season, distinguished himself by winning eight of the ten duels he played in the air. Including the one who brings the jewel of Franck Honorat… More than any other player in the game.
The paradox of history is that FC Lorient opened the scoring… on a successful dribble by Stéphane Diarra, which brought a penalty, transformed by Armand Laurienté (0-1, 13 ‘). The statistics, they, reflect a clear superiority of the Marseillais, Sunday evening, during of their victory (4-1) against the Merlus. Indeed, Jorge Sampaoli’s men managed 18 dribbles, ie… three times more than FC Lorient (6). Obviously insufficient.
Decisive double passer for the very serious success for Stade Rennais in Metz (3-0)On Sunday, the Breton right-back Hamari Traoré had a solid performance. Author of his second and third assists of the season in the league, the Rennes captain posted a 95% pass rate (59/62). A performance he shares with his comrade Jonas Martin (87/92). Only Loïc Badé (98%) and Baptiste Santamaria (100%) did better, but neither played the entire match.
100% success! Author of the first goal of his professional career, Guingamp midfielder Louis Carnot scored on his only shot of the match in Nancy, taking a corner kicked by Youssouf M’Changama (0-1, 17 ‘). Even if this beautiful story was not enough to bring back point at the red lantern Nancy…
