The altruism of Burak Yilmaz with Lille, the rebirth of Valère Germain in Montpellier, the failures of OM and Niçois Amine Gouiri… The tops and flops after the multiplex of the 7th day of Ligue 1 on Wednesday evening.
For once, the Ligue 1 soap opera took place in the middle of the week. The seventh day was notably marked by the late success of PSG in Metz (1-2), with the Moroccan international Achraf Hakimi in the role of the decisive scorer (the tops / flops of Metz-PSG here). A snatch success which allows the Parisians to consolidate their position as leader in the standings. For the rest, Lille, Monaco and Rennes were reassured, while Lyon did the job against Troyes (3-1). Not OM, which was held in check on the side of Angers (0-0). Check out the tops and flops after the seventh trick multiplex.
Lille: Yilmaz treats
In lack of efficiency and points at the start of the season, Lille relied on Burak Yilmaz to bend Reims (2-1). Double decisive passer in the first period, the Turk put the Mastiffs on the right track, finding Jonathan David and Benjamin André. Which Mastiffs were reassured at least on an accounting level, even if this end of the match was not well controlled at all …
Montpellier: Germain sees double
He had been left in a lack of confidence in Marseille. We find him dashing in Montpellier. Against Bordeaux, Valère Germain signed his first double in Ligue 1 since… December 2017. It was against AS Saint-Etienne, with OM. Already three goals under the colors of Hérault. A rebirth. However, this double did not allow the MHSC to win (3-3). Three other players saw double this Wednesday: Rennes’ Kamaldeen Sulemana and Monegasque Wissam Ben Yedder, but also Parisian Achraf Hakimi.
Blas guides the Canaries
The Canaries take flight. After a card against Angers (4-1), Antoine Kombaouré’s players dominated Brest (3-1) on Wednesday. Author of three goals so far, including a double last weekend, Ludovic Blas confirmed his status as a fit man in Nantes.
Shaqiri and Emerson, first!
If the inevitable Lucas Paqueta killed the suspense by offering himself a new goal, Xherdan Shaqiri and Emerson had previously allowed OL to take control against Troyes (3-1). Respectively debauched at Liverpool and Chelsea during the summer transfer window, the two new Lyon heads scored their first goal in their new jersey. The Swiss international is also to be credited with a full match after having struggled against in Paris last Sunday (2-1). His Italian international team-mate was also invaluable overall, although the rapid strikers from Troyes hurt him at times.
Desmas and the Clermontois sink in Rennes
Beaten in their last three outings, Rennes needed a good bowl of confidence. The Clermontois gave them that on Wednesday evening. If he made a high class save against Martin Terrier at the start of the game, an astonishing reflex on a head at close range, Arthur Desmas is not white-blue on the second and third Breton goals … For the rest, it is the whole of the Auvergne formation which has been shattered. After four matches without defeat, the promoted took two slaps in their last three matches, in Paris (4-0) and therefore Rennes this Wednesday evening (6-0), with a draw at home against Brest (1-1 ) between the two.
Gouiri still clumsy
For the second time in three days, Amine Gouiri missed a penalty. The former Lyonnais also « ate the leaf » in the first period, including this missed face to face with Paul Nardi. That’s a lot… And in the end, OGC Nice lost in Lorient (1-0).
Kolodziejczak and Green lead the Greens
AS Monaco did not ask for so much. Drafts, Niko Kovac’s players took advantage of two gifts from ASSE to win Louis II on Wednesday (3-1). First, this poorly managed intervention by the Saint Etienne porter, Etienne Green, which earned the person a red. His teammates still equalized through Denis Bouanga, but ASM took control in the second half, after a penalty from Ben Yedder. A penalty graciously offered by Timothée Kolodziejczak, guilty of a hand in the area.
Despite two face-to-face situations with the Angevin porter, Paul Bernardoni, the Marseillais only left Raymond-Kopa with one point (0-0). Luis Henrique initially took too long to make up his mind in the first half, while Bamba Dieng ran into audit Bernardoni at the end. Stop for OM.
