Ligue 2. The notes of the Saint-Etienne - Girondins (0-2): the collapse of the midfielder, the failures of the Bakwa

A good anticipation outside his area to take a ball from Wadji (15th), another in his area to win his duel against the same attacker (22nd). Powerless against Wadji’s goal (35th). Hard to blame him for not leaving Mason’s volley, particularly well placed (67th).

Malcolm Bokele: 6/10

We saw little of him at an offensive level until his replacement in the axis after Mwanga’s injury. A little tender against Wadji who hits wide (29), but at the appointment in quick succession to remove a ball…

Malcolm Bokele: 6/10

We saw little of him at an offensive level until his replacement in the axis after Mwanga’s injury. A bit sensitive against Wadji who hits wide (29), but he drops back in quick succession to take away a hot ball from Stéphanois and counter a shot from Krasso (30). He is the one who suffered the least and the one who was able to compensate for Barbet’s lack of speed. In addition, he is not far from offering a goal to Badji and Bokélé (80th).

Junior Mwanga: Not Qualified

Right axis for the first time of the season, he begins with three impeccable interventions in the same minute (9th), always releasing that implacable serenity. He injured an adductor in one race (24th) and had to give way to Clement Michelin (score: 4/10). The AEK Athens rookie is too passive in the opening score for the Greens (35th). From then on, he didn’t make a perceptible mistake even though he was never Imperial defensively, nor did he bring danger to his lane. Interesting for photographing scenarios.

Yoann Barbet (c): 4/10

He never showed much composure against Saint-Etienne’s attacks, being slow to manage depth (lack of rhythm?). In defending him, he and his fellow defenders were not protected by their midfield. And to his credit, a good interception (41st). He has tried several times to remobilize his associates. Less struggling in the second period, but unlucky to see his header clearance fall to Mason, who doubled (67th).

Vital nsimba: 4/10

He had a lot to do to manage Saint-Etienne’s counterattacks and above all he had a lot of waste. He loses a very hot ball that gives rise to a great chance for Krasso (27th), then another after a failed control (36th). Much better in the second part, with a delicious exterior (56º) and a perfect roll, both of which were not used by Bakwa. He is clearly more comfortable in the offensive plan than in defense, like this action where Krasso erased him twice in five seconds (66th).

Tom Lacoux: 3/10

He ran a lot, but most of the time in the void trying to fill the empty spaces in between. His foul sanctioned with a yellow card (44th) sums up his frustration, his impotence and the inability of the Bordeaux block to contain the Greens in the first half. He raised the bar as the team early in the second period, but never regained the lead.

Danilo Ignatenko: 3/10

It starts off in AC, with stupidly missing balloons and other more inspired transitions. He contributed to the good Bordeaux pressure of the first twenty minutes before giving up and suffering the debates, like his friends in the middle. Interestingly, he seemed demobilized until the break, like his passivity on Stéphane’s last free kick. He woke up coming back from the locker room, more precise and bleeding in everything he did, until he forgot to follow Mason who will double the bet (67th).

Francis: 2/10

He begins his match with a full shaft lift on the opposite feet and a moonwalked (and therefore lost) attack ball. A nice tense shot deflected by Dreyer (7th), another country (9th), then disappeared from circulation as soon as Saint-Etienne started stepping on the ball. We saw last season’s Fransergio, non-existent in duels. A little better after half time, but still not enough and sometimes just as slow even when space opens up in front of him.

Alberth Elis: Not Ranked

He was injured from the start (quadriceps?) and was replaced (12th) by Logan Delaurier-Chaubet (Score: 3/10). The small attacking midfielder, positioned on the left, offered a lot but never weighed in the game and suffered on impact, as if this ball lost its axis at the end of the first half. No more in sight later. in turn replaced by Aliou Badji (73rd), who lacks promptness to recover a good relief from Bokélé (80th).

Josh Maja: 4/10

Worried about the pressure, he tried to stand out but did not get many balls. A good pivot opening to launch Bakwa (25). He plunders a high recovered ball by missing an unlikely lob (38th) and strikes when the game called for a pass to one of his two unmarked teammates in the box (43rd). A goal disallowed in extra time for having scored with his arm according to the referee (from the chest according to the Englishman) his hat-trick at Paris FC already seems distant.

Dilane Bakwa: 4/10
