The PSG which is satisfied with an inglorious draw (1-1) in Saint-Etienne, Lyon which wins against Lens (3-2) despite a difficult end of the match and alone takes the lead in the standings.
Lille which loses on its lawn against Angers (1-2).
With the return of Raymond Domenech on the bench in Nantes who is satisfied with a draw against Rennes (0-0): these are the lessons to be learned from the evening.
Pochettino starts slow
Mauricio Pochettino's adventure at PSG starts slowly.
For his first on the Parisian bench, the Argentinian coach was content with a draw in Saint-Etienne without much relief which does not help the affairs of the club of the capital.
The goal of Hamouma (19th) answered that of Kean (22nd) and it is very little.
The copy is to be corrected in the near future for the former coach of Tottenham.
Saint-Etienne-PSG (1-1): the ratings of Parisian players
It was Lyon who took advantage of this since by winning against Lens (3-2), the Rhone residents confirmed their first place at the top of Ligue 1. They took it alone.
The Lyonnais led 3-0 just after the break thanks in particular to a brace from Memphis Depay.
But Rudi Garcia's players were scared when they saw the Northerners return to 3-2 with one minute remaining.
The essential is saved especially since at the same time, Lille fell at the Pierre-Mauroy stadium in front of Angers (1-2).
Lille conceded two goals in the first quarter of an hour and did not have the resources to make up for this failed start.
For its part, Olympique de Marseille had a very good evening by getting rid of Montpellier (3-1) thanks to two goals from Payet (80th) and Germain (84th) in the last ten minutes.
There was also a spectacle in Lorient where Monaco won 5-2 after having long been hooked by the promoted Breton, reduced to ten at the start of the second half.
A scoreless first for Domenech with Nantes
The novelty of the evening obviously also came from Nantes where Raymond Domenech, 27 years after leaving Lyon, has found a bench.
Despite his presence, there was no goal or winner in the Breton derby against Rennes (0-0): “In the balance sheet, it's only a point, notes the former coach.
But I keep the organization, the solidity, the desire to play together against a great team from Rennes.
It's a team that played together, that talked to each other.
We laid the first stone.
Now we have to keep improving the game. ”
The last time Domenech led a D1 match in 1993, his Rennes counterpart Julien Stephan was only 12 years old: “During the match, I only looked at the pitch and the players.
But we discussed five minutes before the match, ”says the Rennais.
14 goals scored during this 2nd multiplex 👍!
