Weekend slap

In Paris “Humiliation and crisis are already there”Last week, I declared Luis Fernandez to the “world”. Even the “minimal service” expected by the club’s former glory is not offered by Paris Saint-Germain at the national championships. PSG failed in Monaco Rock and suffered a 3-0 defeat in his suitcase. This is the toughest of the season in L1.

At the origin of each goal, individual errors in the defense of Paris. And it was Monaco, a team that has been struggling for the past few weeks, to take advantage of Wissam Ben Yedder’s brace and Kevin Volland’s goals.

Paris defender Presnerkin Pembe has granted Monaco's third penalty on Sunday, March 20, 2022 at the Louis II Stadium.

“What happened today will never happen again.Guaranteeed coach Mauricio Pochettino in Paris at a press conference. This is serious and we can’t afford it. »» In the rankings, Paris Saint-Germain is primarily the leader and will not be overtaken by the followers, except for cataclysms. Still, the end of the season will be very long.

Weekend team

It’s starting to become a habit. After a big victory in Lyon last week, Rennes seduced Mets again. On Sunday, Rennes defeated Lorraine 6-1. The Bretons made the best attack in League One with 63 goals. Thanks to this success, they climbed to 3rd place (52 points) in the ranking, 1 point behind Marseille and 2 points behind Nice.

Martin Terrier was excellent at winning Rennais over Metz.

It is difficult to separate the individuality because the group of Renne makes such a strong impression. But midfielders Benjamin Bourige, Lovro Majer, and even Flavien Tait can be mentioned. And before, Martin Terrier scored twice against Metz, excellent against his previous club Lyon. Teammate Serhou Guirassy has achieved a hat-trick.

Weekend statement

“MeIs there an American problem in France? »»

At the beginning of the 29th day, Troyes abused Saint-Etienne at the Geoffroy Gishar Stadium. After the Trojan horse defender Erik Palmer-Brown tackled Saint-Etienne midfielder Mahdi Camara, the promote led 1-0 to the hourmark and the referee took a penalty kick. In slow motion, the disability looks suspicious, but a penalty was confirmed after the video referee’s intervention. Lyad Budebs was then responsible for the penalty diversion, equalizing the two teams. Final score 1-1.

At a press conference, ESTAC coach Bruno Irles spoke to the audience about this turning point in the match.Watch him answer his question and raise his hand to the reporter “Who will vote for the penalty? »»He launched in a bitter tone: “Okay, maybe you were friends with the VAR people.”..

Technicians continued by associating the hot reaction of American licensed player Eric Palmer-Brown in the area. “Finally, he told me,” Is there an American problem in France? Second time. “”.. A reference to another controversial penalty that whistled against the natives of the city of Napoleon, Ohio during a match against Lyon last January.

Weekend action

We prefer to claim Florian Sotoka’s talent over the mistakes of Clermon goalkeeper Upalin Joko. Indeed, the latter showed great excitement that Lance’s players couldn’t be seen behind him. However, Sotoka’s calmness and skill ended the action perfectly. It’s not easy.

Weekend memory weakness

Sylvain Armando was (again) obsessed with his anger. A month after a fight with female coach Frederick Antonetti, Frederick Antonetti was suspended for two games by the league’s disciplinary committee and towered during a meeting with FC Nantes at the club. I stood up. ..

Sylvain Armand came down from the stand and explained his thoughts to the fourth referee when the referee expelled Lille’s Timothy Weah in the 68th minute of the match at Beaujoire Stadium. “I can’t stand fraudHe justified himself after the meeting. I can apologize for getting off, but I haven’t responded. I have no regrets. »»

When asked about this episode at a press conference, FC Nantes coach Antoine Combourere said: “The referee made a decision. I saw the action, Lille wants to leave the field … Sylvain is a good boy, I had him as a player [au PSG].. But there is pressure and they can’t stand it! They need to calm down. »»

By the way, it was Lille who won 1-0 in Nantes and got a good result at the top.

At Lens, there were two things to celebrate at Borart Stadium on Saturday night. It was a big victory over Clermont (3-1) and the first choice of the French team Jonathan Claus on the right. The 29-year-old Alsatian, who had two seasons of great success on the right side of League One, deserves this fellowship with the masses of Reims. In a position where no one offers a guarantee in a blue jersey, Jonathan Claus could be a surprise guest on the list of Didier Deschamps for the next World Cup in Qatar.
