Stade de Reims: In the midst of a nightmare, the Greens collapse in the second half and are close to Ligue 2

At the Geoffroy-Guichard Stadium,

The disaster scenario happened this Saturday in Saint-Etienne. And he paid the heavy price for the birthday of the Green Angels, which was celebrated unsurprisingly against Monaco with dozens of smoke bombs. Thus, the next total camera comes at the worst time, during a very tense 37th day of the French Ligue 1.

However, against the well-defended Stade de Reims (12th) the Greens had the means to maintain their place in a playoff, 3 points ahead of Metz and 4 over Bordeaux before the meeting. After losing (1-2) after a disastrous second half, Pascal Dobraz’s men are now 19th, well ahead of the average (six goals) for Metz.

Sudden cold from the start

Sainté did not delay even two minutes to concede his 75th goal of the season. Funny performance since Rémois hasn’t crossed the midfield yet. Even when they give the impression that they are entering a well-rounded meeting, greens are always able to remember how highly porous they are for months.

Mitchell van Bergen (0 goals and 0 assists this season in Ligue 1) baffled Yvann Maçon and Saïdou Sow by taking the ball off his left flank. Paul Bernardoni saved well against Ilan Capal in the center of the defense of the Dutchman, but Marshall Monetsi finished the match and hit a strong kick behind Stefano’s head (0-1, 2). Then another disappointment scenario crystallized, especially in this bleak atmosphere.

misleading reaction

ASSE responded just ten minutes later, thanks to a confused corner kick by Yunus Abdelhamid, which allowed Eliaquim Mangala to equalize with a mine from the left (1-1, 12). This was followed by a clear spotlight from Pascal Debraz’s men, with several great opportunities to take the lead, such as a header from Riad Boudebouz not being strong enough (17), and two attempts by Mehdi Kamara blocked by Berdrag Rajkovic (21 and 27). But given the completely upside-down second half of Saint-Etienne, this fine sequence isn’t much of a weight.

Hugo Ekitike and Rémois bring Sainté closer to Ligue 2

How could Stefano reach the second half so bad? It’s a mystery considering the sword of Damocles hanging above the club since the start of this difficult season, or nearly. It required two superb saves from Miguel Traoco and Saido Soo (55th place), then a very close shot from Hugo Eketiki, who played a role in the break (56), to fend off a ruthless admission of failure. The ASSE defense finally succumbed to the first goal in Ligue 1 Kamore Doumbia (19), who easily beat Eliaquim Mangala (1-2, 55). Between Ikitaki’s shot at the post (83) and Paul Bernardoni’s stunning save against Dion Lopi (85th), Sante came close to an even bigger disappointment, which had dire consequences with FC Metz’s success against Angers (1-0), while Bordeaux could not Overcome Lorient (0-0).

To achieve this, Saint-Etienne players were upset when Romain denied his father-in-law the equalizer for a goal he scored in two stages, and lightly touched Rajkovic’s arm on the spot (72). Clément Turpin may have been arrested by the entire cauldron, about thirty people, so he didn’t go to check the VAR photos himself. Add to that a superb free kick from Wahbi Khazri who tackled Koh Rajkovic who was badly beaten… In a tense post-match context with incidents around a cauldron, Sainté is now doing more than just flirting with League 2, in the boot of the nineteen when moving to Nantes Next Saturday, I hope PSG beat Metz at the same time.
