Ajaccio’s nightmare at home


The 9th day of Ligue 1 saw the Auxerrois be held in check at home by Brest (1-1), while the Ajacciens sank against Clermont (1-3).

The season will be decidedly long and painful for Ajaccio, still a red lantern in Ligue 1 after the 9th day. The Corsicans were unable to ignite the game at home against a robust Clermont team (1-3). Grejohn Kyei scored his first goal with panache in the Auvergne jersey, with a subtle acrobatic return (11th). The ACA then broke its teeth on well-organized visitors. The opportunistic goal of Cédric Avinel (70th) seemed a fair reward, but, caught in its own trap, Ajaccio saw Rashani on a set piece (89th), then Dossou after a festival of Khaoui (90th + 2), re -administer a blow of bamboo. The only Ajaccian victory, before the truce in Brest (0-1), already seems a long way off. Clermont, 9th, is still giving itself air in the race to maintain.

A maintenance that Brestois and Auxerrois will have a hard time getting at this pace (1-1). In a match that was slow to take off, AJA seemed doomed after the severe expulsion of Janvier (54th) and the opener of Islam Slimani (64th). Problem: the Finisterians did not know how to press where it hurts. On a free kick, Hérelle almost ripped off Jubal’s jersey. Not everyone saw it live, but the VAR was there to award a logical penalty to Auxerre, which M’Baye Niang (86th) converted. Despite a tense end to the game, AJA ended a series of four defeats to stabilize in 14th place. Brest, 18th, has a sixth game without a win and has still not managed a single clean sheet this season.

Junya Ito scorer, passer and expelled with Reims

The clean sheets, Reims and Troyes don’t know what it is either (2-2). Oscar Garcia’s players made a successful start with confident Trojans, thanks to Junya Ito’s caviar for Folarin Balogun (12th). But a big mistake by their goalkeeper, Yehvann Diouf, offered the equalizer to Wilson Odobert (51st). In the process, Ito put his own in front like a surface fox (54th), before… receiving a deserved red card for a foot at knee height from a Rémois (56th). ESTAC then pushed (19 shots, 6 on target), and it was when she no longer believed in it that, on a messed up center, Jackson Porozo opened his goal counter in the blue jersey (90th). A frustrating draw for the men of Bruno Irles, 11th in the standings. Reims, which has not won for four matches, vegetates in 17th place, in the red zone.
