Ligue 1 – The tops and flops of the 9th day: The masterclass of Clauss, Théo Le Bris shines, Ben Yedder overtakes Falcao

The tops

  • Clauss, not clumsy on the left
Even he did not think he was capable of this, according to his amused reaction to the microphone of our colleagues from Prime Video. Jonathan Clauss scored his first goal for OM on Friday at the opening of the 9th day of Ligue 1… with the left foot, and from the left flank, where he replaced a suspended Nuno Tavares. The usual Marseille right piston also delivered two assists, contributing to the wide success of his team in Angers (0-3). The French international has certainly admitted some lack of defensive benchmarks, but above all he has done well, a month and a half before the start of the World Cup in Qatar (November 20-December 18).

  • Rennes, the art and the way
Air control followed by a pivot strike. A great threesome action. And, finally, a double one-two. Rennes did not just sink Strasbourg at La Meinau. Bruno Genesio’s men also took care to put the way. The three goals scored by Kalimuendo, Terrier and Gouiri are simply a feast for the eyes. In the technical accuracy and construction of their offensives, the Rouge et Noir are looking more and more like they were last season. And that’s good.

Should Paris extend Messi? “PSG must first wait”

By now you have heard a lot about Régis Le Bris, the very prominent coach of Lorient. But did you know his nephew, Theo? The midfielder is also a Hake. Not always a starter, he may have changed his season on Sunday against Lille. Entering at the end of the match when his team was playing with ten, the one who celebrated his 20th birthday the day before succeeded, after a superb sequence on an aerial ball, to overflow his Lille vis-à-vis to go and score alone, like a great . And offer his uncle a new success. The Le Bris family is on the rise.
  • Ben Yedder, a hat trick to pass Falcao

And three which make 67. Author of a hat-trick during the great success of Monaco against Nantes, Wissam Ben Yedder offered himself a prestigious brand. The tricolor striker brought his total of achievements with the Rock club to 67, thus becoming the most prolific Monegasque scorer in the 21st century ahead of a certain … Radamel Falcao.

  • Bollaert, the trump card
Five matches, five wins, 15 points taken! Driven by its inflamed public in a boiling Bollaert-Delelis stadium, RC Lens feasts in its lair. And Lyon, dominated head and shoulders on Sunday evening (1-0), paid the price. Still undefeated this season in L1 (6 wins, 3 draws), the Artésiens, who signed a successful performance against OL, have a key asset. And they revel in it to refuel at home, like no one currently in L1. « With this audience, it’s much easier. We know we have a big weapon, it’s the public“, summarized Brice Samba on Prime Video. The kind of details that is not one.

The flops

Ligue 1 has always been renowned for the quality of its goalkeepers. But this weekend, the porters of the French championship encountered more difficulties. Kasper Schmeichel (Nice) was guilty of a hazardous raise which benefited PSG, Yehvann Diouf (Reims) got his feet tangled up and allowed Wilson Odobert to equalize, Lucas Chevalier (Lille) badly repelled a ball and Benoît Costil (Auxerre) lacked firmness on a strike from Islam Slimani. Ouch.
  • Tear gas at the stadium

Strange scenes at the Stadium, during the match between Toulouse and Montpellier. Mr. Pignard, referee of the game, had no choice but to stop the game in the second period. Why ? Several players had itchy eyes, due to the use of tear gas in the visitor parking area, a priori by the police. Uncommon. And another bad publicity for Ligue 1.

  • For Ajaccio, the thinning did not last

Finally, the bleeding is not stopped. Winner of their first game in Brest before the break, after a series of five defeats, Ajaccio relapsed at home against Clermont. Led, the Corsicans had found the resources to equalize, thanks to Avinel. But they finally flinched at the very end of the match, conceding two goals in two minutes. Not really good news before going to Marseille … and receiving PSG in three weeks.

  • The bad habit of Reims

It is not difficult to identify one of the reasons why Reims is struggling to advance in Ligue 1. In recent weeks, the Champagne club has taken on an annoying habit: finishing its meetings in numerical inferiority. Oscar Garcia’s men have finished ten against eleven in five of their last six league outings. In Troyes, it was Junya Ito who was sent off for a gross and dangerous foul, just moments after giving his team the advantage. Shame.
