Clermont renverse Reims, Toulouse sérieux à Troyes, Auxerre bute sur Angers

This Sunday afternoon, within the framework of matchday 2 of Ligue 1, Clermont completely turned the Reims match upside down in the second half and left Reims with their first doubts (4-2). Toulouse confirmed their good moment in Troyes (3-0), too limited against the French Ligue 2 champion. Ajaccio and Lens could not score a single goal (0-0). Finally, Auxerre conceded a frustrating draw against Angers (2-2).

Ajaccio-Lens: 0-0

Lens tried everything but couldn’t find fault with Ajaccio’s defence, the best in Ligue 2 last season (0-0). A week after the initial defeat in Lyon (2-1), the Corsicans showed solidarity to keep one point. Przemysaw Frankowski tried several times to circumvent the vigilance of Benjamin Leroy (29, 50), impeccable this Sunday, without success. Florian Sotoca, author of a hat-trick during the first day against Brest (3-2), even tried a scissors, without more success (30th). A positive point for the Sang et Or, their streak of crossings without defeat now stands at five (three wins, two draws). On the Corsica side, the lack of attacking strength in attack could bring problems for the rest of the season.

Auxerre-Angers: 2-2

A week after their contrasting return to Ligue 1, AJA conceded a draw against the feverish Angevins (2-2). Auxerrois’ main mission was simple: not to miss the start of the game like in Lille, during the first day, where they had conceded two goals in three minutes (4-1). They did better than that: Julian Jeanvier took advantage of the hesitation of Paul Bernardoni, whose performance will not have put an end to the debate on the identity of the number 1 in the Angevin cages, to open the scoring (4th), then on a dangerous cross, Cédric Hountondji he deflected the ball into his own goal (10th).

Thrown to the edge of offside, Loïs Diony closed the gap and gave hope to his teammates who had been overwhelmed so far (22nd). Bad surprises followed for Jean-Marc Furlan’s men during the second act: Lassine Sinayoko made a bad gesture (57th) and was excluded, Gauthier Hein’s goal (65th) was disallowed for a previous foul and Amine Salama (77th) signed the tie for the visitors.

Reims-Clermont: 2-4

What a change of situation! The Rémois, reduced to ten in the second half after the red card of Emmanuel Agbadou (47th), broke through to record a second loss in as many games against Clermont (2-4). Heavily defeated in Marseille last Sunday (4-1), the Champenois made the difference for the first time in a one-sided first period. Folarin Balogun, on loan from Arsenal, confirmed his good start to the season: hanging in the area, the striker caused a first penalty, converted without trembling by Kamory Doumbia (23rd). Then, after a handball from Yohann Magnin, he took the second penalty and scored his second goal in two games (29th).

Everything changed in the second part. The red card of Emmanuel Agbadou (47th) was a first clue. Komnen Andric offered himself a penalty double and a lopsided header (52nd, 62nd), the young Muhammed-Cham Saracevic adjusted Patrick Pentz at the entrance to the area (72nd) and Jérémie Bela completed the triumph of Auvergne (78th). Saîf-Eddine Khaoui came close to adding to the score (87th), but his goal was disallowed for offside position. Óscar García will have to pay attention to his defense that has already conceded eight goals in two games.

Troyes-Toulouse: 0-3

Toulouse confirmed its good start to the season by winning at Troyes, after a controlled match (3-0). Troyes suffered another defeat, the second this year, after the one against Montpellier at the start of the championship. Technically superior, dominating in all sectors, Toulouse opened the scoring with one against their camp Yasser Larouci (36th). The defender came under pressure from Brecht Dejaegere, announced as a starter and absent last Sunday against Nice.

Without security for long minutes against counterattacks from Aubois, TFC finally made the break after good pressure from Thijs Dallinga and a shot from Rafael Ratao (54th). Rhys Healey, Ligue 2’s top scorer, pulled off a small personal feat to add even more relief to his team’s victory (85th). With four points from two matches, the French Ligue 2 champions are having a successful start to the season in the top flight.
