Saint-Etienne crashes early on, Laval surprises Bastia, Guingamp leads… Day 1 results

The start of the 2022 League Two season has been confirmed. A week before the League One club kicked off, the Second Division team was back on the field on Saturday 30 July. Relegated Saint-Etienne, Bordeaux and Metz had mixed fortunes, with a very poor start for Greens, a draw for Girondins and convincing success for Grena. A win (4-0) over Poe gives Guingamp the lead in the championship.

With a devastating defense, Saint-Etienne got off to a terrible start

ASSE certainly doubted it, but now they have confirmation: Ligue 1’s path to ascent will be difficult. Beaten with no room (2-1), Stefanova remains stuck in last place in the classification as she left with a 3-point handicap after the ensuing overflow. The club is eliminated in the play-off against Auxerre.

Physically dominated by Omar Daf’s formation, ASSE knows it has to whip. And above all, to find some kind of tranquility, as she does not release security, as in the two goals she has acknowledged: Twice, Rubien and Soumare had a major brawl in her area of ​​Saint-Hétienne. I used it and scored. And without a few parries from Etienne Green and an incomprehensible blunder from the Dijon striker, the score might have been heavier. Although the score was splendidly reduced, it was by no means a tree that hid the green forest.

Just as Dennis Buanga was ousted on his deathbed for insulting a referee, the Greens missed a lower division reunion they hadn’t seen since 2004.

Bordeaux suppressed by Valenciennes

When the multiplex started at 7pm, all eyes were on Matmut Atlantique. The club were kept at the limit in Ligue 2 due to a decision by the French Football Federation that week, but Bordeaux’s Girondins faced Valenciennes on the opening day of the championship.On this occasion, Ultramarine has unfurled a banner “We were dying, it made us stronger”, which was not necessarily field-verified. With a heavily overhauled and rejuvenated team, Bordeaux were held back by the Northerners despite their dominance (0-0).

Girondin’s next decisive match: next week there will be a new passage ahead of the DNCG, which could lead to a restricted transfer window.

Gangan first leader

Sixth, at the gate of last season’s Ligue 1 signing play-offs, Guingamp determined to start the 2022-2023 vintage in the best possible way. Against Poe at Rudour Stadium, EAG unfolded (4–0), with a goal from Jeremy Rivolan, a goal from Medimerguem and a double for Jules Gaudin to make his first term in Ligue 2. Ahead of the Mets, on their goal difference. The Garnets, relegated from Ligue 1, also started the season in ideal form with his 3–0 win at home to Amiens. Ramin Ghe, Georges Mikautadze and Ibrahima Niane are the scorers for Messi.

Reverse start for promoted people

Back in the second division, Laval and Annecy spent two very different nights. At Bastia, Zakaria made Mayenne his forward 2–0 thanks to his Naige double, the new center from Pau. The extra point would have been higher had Johnny Placido not stopped the penalty shot by Julian Maggiotti in a tense game that was marked by two red cards, one for each team, at the end of the game. maybe.

On the contrary, Annecy missed out on entry against Niort at the Parc des Sports. Chamois Niortais won 1-2 thanks to his Yanis Merdji and Bilal Boutobba goals from the penalty spot. Savoyers responded well with Arnold’s Temanfo goal, but it wasn’t enough to reverse the trend.
