This Tuesday evening was disputed the 9th day of Ligue 2 from 8 p.m., with ten meetings on the program, including a shock in Charléty between Paris FC and Nîmes, both being at the foot of the Big Five before the game. On a series of three defeats in a row, the Parisians presented themselves with a defense of 5 (or 3, according to Thierry Laurey). Opposite, Zinedine Ferhat, his aborted transfer digested, made his return to the eleven. A match that started with a glitch for the PFC, Cyril Mandouki injuring himself on a badly executed tackle (15th, replaced by Ousmane Camara). And, without real surprise, the first thrill came from Ferhat on the left side, but Niclas Eliasson, receiving his partner’s cross, missed his recovery at close range (24th). With Ferhat still at the origin of the action, Moussa Koné presented himself against Vincent Demarconnay, who lay down well in his feet (30th).
Ousmane Kanté gushes, Toulouse goes on
But it was Paris, on its first good movement, which was finally close to opening the scoring thanks to a cross deflection of Arnaud Tattevin (34th). On the wire, Koné was badly negotiating a close head (44th). Tattevin, often well placed, still deflected a long shot from Florent Hanin and pushed Per Kristian Bratveit to the parade (49th). Then, as a symbol, it was captain Ousmane Kanté who, with a furious shot deflected by Ueda, scored Paris FC’s first goal in three matches (1-0, 60th). A liberation. In the process, the young Tattevin (62nd), and Migouel Alfarela (64th), had golden opportunities. The Locals, much more enterprising after the goal, even made the break thanks to Warren Caddy, on a service from Check Oumar Diakité (2-0, 75 ‘).
In the distance match for first place, Toulouse rolled over Dunkirk away while Ajaccio was neutralized by Niort at home. The TFC therefore takes four steps ahead in the lead. For his part, Auxerre, braked in Quevilly on Saturday, resumed his march forward against Rodez thanks to the inevitable Gaëtan Charbonnier, now co-top scorer in Ligue 2 with 6 goals (tied with Caennais Alexandre Mendy). Sochaux, long defeated by Guingamp, pulled out to overturn everything after the break. Note also the performance of Grenoble against the red lantern Nancy, with a large victory despite the early exclusion of Manuel Perez (45th + 2).
