It was the last-ditch match for the Red Star.
But the Saint-Ouen club did not succeed in forcing its destiny against Quevilly, already assured of climbing to L2 with SC Bastia.
With this draw (0-0), the Red Star remains 5th with five points behind Villefranche (3rd).
It will therefore take a miracle - two defeats for Villefranche and missteps from Concarneau, Le Mans or Orléans - for the Red Star (who will have to achieve a full card against Bastia-Borgo and SC Bastia) to pull off the dams .
Suffice to say that hope is minimal or even nonexistent ... The Red Star will therefore spend a third season in a row in the National.
If the great adventure in the Coupe de France (round of 16 against Lyon after eliminating Lens) has pumped a lot of energy, President Patrice Haddad will have to analyze in depth the reasons for this failure.
While the Bauer Stadium will finally be rebuilt and the training and training center is taking shape in Marville, the Red Star will lose a year in its project.
It will also be necessary to settle the case of coach Vincent Bordot, at the end of his contract and coveted by other National teams.
What you must remember
The Red Star has lived a scenario seen repeatedly in recent weeks. A team that provides itself with many opportunities but is unable to convert them. Forced to win, the Red Star was dangerous on several occasions in the first period as on this action of Gomel and Ndoye. Countered by Padovani, the ball takes the direction of the skylight but Lemaitre, the goalkeeper of QRM, diverts with a nice tap (15th). Alone at the second post, Koukou then places his head just next to it (43rd).
If Jung, the National top scorer (21 goals) who should be one of the players who will panic the next transfer window, forces Charruau to make a big save (47th), the Red Star is still close to scoring but Meissa Ba , alone in the axis, strikes on Lemaitre (60th).
The Quevilly goalkeeper is still decisive against Meissa Ba (87th).
The Red Star missed his chance and could even have been picked up against.
The number: 2
The number of successes for the Red Star since the start of 2021 in the league in 16 games.
Bordot's players also made 8 draws and lost 6 times.
With such a record, it's hard to hope for better ...
The player: Papa Meissa Ba
Arrived from Troyes (L2) during the January transfer window, the Senegalese striker symbolized the Red Star's lack of offensive efficiency against Quevilly.
He ran up against Quevilly goalkeeper Lemaitre on several occasions.
Since joining the Red Star, Meissa Ba, who scored 2 goals with Troyes in L2 during the first part of the season, has scored 5 goals (2 in the league, 3 in the Coupe de France).
Insufficient to allow his team to pass a course.
“We will play until the end but at some point, we have to face the facts.
When you have so many chances, you have to know how to score.
It's frustrating but that's what we've been experiencing since January.
This denotes a glaring lack of a team that cannot play the climb.
Jung and Dadoune, the two Quevilly forwards, scored 34 goals between them.
Us, 36 in total… That sums it all up.
Hats off to Quevilly and Bastia who deserve their climb ”.
Vincent Bordot, Red Star trainer.
