After the defeat of OL in Angers (3-0) at midday, here is what to remember from the matches played this Sunday afternoon.

In addition to the victories of Clermont and Nantes, 2-0 respectively over Troyes and Metz, the Brest - Rennes (1-1) and Reims - Montpellier (3-3) meetings ended in two breathtaking draws.

The perf: the box full of promoted Clermont

Incredible but true… Clermont, winner of Troyes 2-0 in the shock of the promoted for the first Ligue 1 meeting in its history in its Gabriel-Montpied stadium, has 6 points out of 6 possible after two days.

Author of a meritorious draw in Monaco (1-1) last week, FC Nantes dominated without discussion a Metz put out of position by the speed of execution opposing the Beaujoire.

Nantes goals, both at the end of nice movements, are signed Kolo Muani (11th) and Blas (48th), Simon being the passer each time.

The winning coaching: Brest - Rennes 1-1

Despite many opportunities on both sides throughout the game, for Mounié on the Brest side and Doku in particular on the Rennes side, the match seemed to be heading towards a “good” 0-0.

It was counting without the contribution of the Rennes and Brest replacements, Guirassy (0-1, 84th) and Le Douaron (1-1, 90th + 1), each scorer of the head, at the reception of a center, in the last few minutes.
