Before Toulouse-Sochaux scheduled for Monday, only one Ligue 2 team to chain a third success in as many days: Paris FC. On the lawn of Amiens, who played in Ligue 1 last year, René Girard’s men went looking for a very important victory (1-2). Julien Lopez, following a corner, and Moustapha Name, after a high recovery, scored the goals of the Parisians. The penalty converted by Steven Mendoza in the second half gave the Picards hope. In vain. Jonathan Pitroipa’s partners have been very solid since the start of the season and send a message to the competition with his three points sought at the Unicorn stadium.
Caen and Niort hang on
If Paris FC conceded its first goal of the season on the penalty converted by Amiens, its provisional runner-up still has a waterproof defense. Caen still preserved its clean sheet this Saturday on the lawn of Rodez. Better yet, the Normans scored three goals (0-3). Nicholas Gioacchini, Yacine Bammou and Jessy Deminguet shook the nets of a team reduced to ten at the end of the match. Just behind Malherbe, we find Niort who took the best over Nancy (1-0). Pape Ibnou Ba scored the only goal of the meeting, the first of his career in Ligue 2. With a possession that remained sterile, the Lorraine tried to respond but they failed to materialize their actions.
Clermont, undefeated but ninth
After two draws, Clermont won its first game of the season in Auxerre (0-1). At the end of the match, Jodel Dossou took the depth perfectly to make the difference. The current ninth in Ligue 2 is still undefeated while his Beninese striker starts his season. In front of Pascal Gastien’s men, there are several formations which have six points. They all won this Saturday. Valenciennes in particular took advantage of the early expulsion of Nama Fofana to get the best of Châteauroux thanks to a realization of Teddy Chevalier (1-0). A penalty from Hyun-Jun Suk and a late goal from Lenny Pintor allowed Troyes to enforce logic against Pau (2-0). At the same time, Grenoble knocked down Chambly in the last 20 minutes (1-2). Achille Anani and Terell Ondaan responded to Medhy Guezoui. Earlier in the day, against Guingampais who did not find the solution despite the change of coach made during the international break, Le Havre won (1-3). Jamal Thiaré has confirmed that he is the new leader of the Norman attack with a brace in the first period. A goal against his own goal from Jérémy Mellot made it easier for a senior club who conceded a goal from Matthias Phaeton in the second half. After three days, Guingamp has just one point and no lead over the relegation zone.
