Ligue 1: Monaco sinks Metz, Clermont loses big against Nantes, Troyes takes advantage at the last minute

whipped when of the last day in Rennes (1-6), unable to win a single game since January 16, the Messins dropped their heads again this Sunday, at home against Monaco (1-2). After a monotonous but balanced first period, Dylan Bronn offered the first goal to Wissam Ben Yedder when his intervention failed. The French striker could thus turn around in goal and become the only top scorer in Ligue 1 with 18 goals (0-1, 46th). This gift cost dearly to Frédéric Antonetti’s formation, which remains 19th and, however, reacted well after the first goal conceded.

Ibrahim Amadou even equalized with a sublime volley on the hour of play (1-1, 62nd). The end of the match was lively, but in the end it was Myron Boadu who had the last word. The Monegasque striker, signed for about 17 million euros this summer, scored his second goal in Ligue 1. He had to try twice: the first was denied for offside. The second, a diving header to a perfect cross from Caio Henrique, was perfectly valid (1-2, 72nd). It allows ASM goes back six lengths from the podium.

Clermont tried everything to end their downward spiral of three straight losses and four games without a win. But they still lost at home against Nantes after a second half eliminated and marked by four goals in ten minutes (2-3). The Clermontese came from behind on two occasions, by Saif-Eddine Khaoui after a brilliant deflection by Mohamed Bayo in the area (58th), then by Salis Abdul Samed who shot an Alban Lafont not exempt from some reproach (63rd).

But the visitors’ third goal, scored five minutes later by Randal Kolo Muani (67th), prevailed. Pascal Gastien’s men even reached ten after the second yellow received by Salis Abdul Samed (72nd). They will be able to ponder for a long time the opportunity of Yohann Magnin in the first half, who sent a shot just wide when he was in an ideal position (38th). They will also regret the inexplicable lack of a hand by Jim Allevinah in a corner, which was going to lead to Ludovic Blas opening the scoring from a penalty (0-1, 43rd). The sequel is known.

ESTAC took the opportunity to take a small lead in the red zone. The Trojans stumbled for a long time with the Reims defense, which withdrew after Azor Matusiwa was excluded for a second yellow card in the 54th minute. They patiently waited for extra time and Renaud Ripart’s freeing goal (90th + 3) to pocket all three points (1-0) and secure their 15th place, five units ahead of the first relegated.

Europe flies to Montpellier

It may be one more defeat for Montpellier, who will undoubtedly say goodbye to their European ambitions after hosting Brest (1-2). Failure of a very well organized visiting team throughout the match. The lack also with a gala Franck Honorat. After a good job down the right lane, the Brest striker signed his seventh assist in the debut of debutant Martin Satriano (0-1, 69th), which was his fourth goal since his arrival.

Franck Honorat himself scored the second goal, adjusting Jonas Omlin in two sets to register his tenth achievement of the season (0-2, 79th). The reduction of distance that Teji Savanier signed from a penalty in extra time was not enough to revive Montpellier. Nothing more than the return of the Ultras to the Stade de la Mosson.
