Ligue 1: a very big blow at the top of the table


By: Manu Tournoux

Find the results of this Sunday afternoon, counting for the 25th day of Ligue 1.

In this strange period where the best students are standing still, a big name had a big game to play this Sunday afternoon: AS Monaco. The day after Brest’s defeat at Lens (0-1), and after a Sunday which began with the draw between PSG and Reims (2-2), the Principality club did not miss the opportunity to recover by securing a precious victory in Strasbourg (1-0).

Monaco passes second

A single goal was enough to make the Monegasques happy. It was the work of young Ben Seghir twenty minutes from the final whistle (0-1, 72nd). The ASM thus returns to a small point behind the runner-up, Brest, and consolidates its lead over its pursuers by settling comfortably on the podium. Fourteenth, Strasbourg will have to react quickly to avoid slipping into the red zone.

Metz regains hope

Troubled waters in which Metz and Clermont have been struggling for many months. In a high-stakes duel at the bottom of the table, it was the promoted team from Lorraine who had the last word by signing a second success in a row (1-0). A penalty converted with authority by Mikautadze after half an hour of play (1-0, 33rd) was the only goal in this tense and closed match. Penultimate, Metz returns to two units from Lorient and distances itself from the red lantern.

Le Havre gets some fresh air

The other promoted team, Le Havre, had an excellent operation, also winning by the smallest of margins against a team in form, Toulouse (1-0). Opéri broke the deadlock on the hour mark (1-0, 60th). A victory which allows the Norman club to return to the rearview mirror of its opponent of the day.
