At the end of a game that was like a true trench warfare, Amiens SC achieved a precious victory at Sochaux (0-1) this Saturday. All thanks to some warriors in the absence of a collective technical domain. Discover our notes after this meeting of the 3rd day of Ligue 2.
Formosa Mendy (7): Rated as Amiens SC’s best defender by Philippe Hinschberger, the Senegalese honored this status in his first term of the season. After some borderline saves early in the game, Formose Mendy sped up, piling up sharp saves and perfectly timed to offset the generosity of his teammates on the defensive axis. If there is still a little extravagance in his aerial game, it will only have been enough for him to adjust the break against Annecy to return to a very good level. Let’s take advantage of him while he’s still here.
Anthony Leautey (6) : Quite discreet in the first minutes, with the game leaning towards the left lane and in the Amiens field, Antoine Leautey started to make people talk about him around half an hour into the game. And there is no doubt that Yoël Armougom will sleep well this evening after the many races made towards his goal to try to reach the rotating piston of Amiens. As in Metz, he hits the post (35 ′) and will wait again to score his first goal in his new colors. Meanwhile, he is clearly the most consistent player since the start of the season.
Jeremy Gelin (6): When we see him in the opposite half of the field, we better understand why Philippe Hinschberger decided to play him in midfield. In front of Annecy, the former Rennais distributed a small caviar in the interval and the opposite back. But if Ange Chibozo had stumbled before missing her attempt, Doums Fofana converted the offer with a badly negotiated hard shot by Maxence Prévot. Otherwise, the former international hopeful provided a true technical success in midfield. To his discredit, a slight lack of repercussion in the duels that is probably explained by a physical condition that is still far from optimal.
The notes :
Tolu Arokodare (4): His lack of effectiveness is certainly proportional to his fighting spirit. If he spared no effort, Tolu Arokodare proved too messy to help Amiens SC break Doubiste’s block. In addition to his still suspicious line-up (3 offsides in an hour), the Nigerian still accumulates failed controls and approximate ball behaviors. His flat foot missed the small outside net late in the first half as Chibozo waited for the ball at the penalty spot, a symbol in itself of his overall performance. Exhausted and replaced by Florian Bianchini (59′).
Angel Chibozo (4) : Established in the absence of Aliou Badji, the Beninese confirmed that he was not yet the starting player in Ligue 2. With 15 turnovers and above all only two duels out of eleven played, he suffered against the physical dimension of the Sochaux defenders . His only goal of the game did not find the door and his excess of individualism sometimes slowed down Amiens’ counterattacks. Substituted by Mathis Lachuer to keep the score (80′). Currently, he is nothing more than a joker capable of setting the tone at the end of the game.
Matthew Xanthippe (5) : Preferred to Sebastien Ring, the left piston delivered a fairly neutral copy for his second-rank tenure. If he sometimes managed to combine when approaching the penalty area, he was rarely at the end of his actions (2 crosses). Defensively, the danger came mainly from his side at the beginning of the match, it is true that Mamadou Fofana’s very slow start did not help either. Substituted by Sébastien Ring (70′), who tried to calm the storm at the end of the match.
