Toulouse drowns Nancy
Scheduled for January 10, but postponed due to Caron flooding, the match between Toulouse and Nancy changed a few minutes this Wednesday (4-0). After a disappointing draw against Pav (1-1) on Saturday and without injury Brecht Dezagre, the TFC began to rust, but were lifted by the turn of fate. During an opening from Denis Genro to Rice Healy, Nancy defender Thomas Pasilla completely missed his intervention by kicking the Englishman in the stomach. Logically expelled (on the 24th), Pasila did not join the locker room when ASNL was already submerged.
Following a good call at the start by Stijn Spearings (29th), Japanese Ado Oneu soon started scoring. The latter was again in the form of a break, finding a pass to Healy. Def’s goal was surpassed by Nathan Trott’s dismissal, but Australian Genro signed his first goal in League 2 (30th). Lorraine, who was already stunned, then lost Mammoth Thiam to injury (44th), and the TFC was able to establish its dominance.
Healy thought he had signed 3-0 after leaving Trott (51st) a short while ago, but he did not touch the center of Franco van den Booman, and he went straight into the goal (55th). Before scoring the fourth goal (88th), Rattav hit the pole (86th). Toulouse, who has been at a slow pace in the last eleven matches (only three wins), responded well, though not out of the top 2 spots from day three. After he started against Bastia on Saturday (2-1), Nancy, always last, comes out of the spleen.
Ultra-solid and efficient Ajasio
Its last match was against Grenoble on December 21 (1-0) – after the first two meetings of 2022 were postponed due to the Kovit-19 lawsuits between its opponents – AC Ajaccio did not miss its discount. In the late game for the 20th day, the Amiens ground (1-0). The Corsicans used the same recipe during the first phase, relying on iron defense (only 8 goals conceded in the championship this season, only one in the last nine matches) and medical performance.
In many situations (10th, 39th, 65th, 74th, 77th, 82nd) the players relied on Riad Noori’s ability to make a difference, as promised by their excellent goalkeeper Benjamin Leroy. The winger developed an excellent orientation control to remove Formos Mendy, following the opening of Cayden Court and adjusted Regis Gurtner by closing his legs (41st). At 36, Noori is the highest scorer this season (6 goals).
Thanks to his goal, ACA shares first place with Toulouse in the L2, but one game less than DFC. The consistency he exhibits will give him hope for a better reward at the end of the season.
