The day after a disrupted Ligue 1 Saturday, first in Lens by overflows and clashes between supporters in the North derby, then in Saint-Etienne by bad weather during the against Bordeaux, Ligue 1 found a little normality this Sunday.
Back to the highlights of this afternoon.
The good move: Nantes currying Angers
So far Angers had only conceded two goals in five games. It took about twenty minutes for the Nantes to register three this Sunday, and a fourth in the second half to win at Stade Raymond Kopa (4-1). Goals scored by Andrei Girotto in the 3rd minute, then Ludovic Blas on penalty in the 6th minute after a bad tackle from Doumbia in the box on Kolo Muani. The latter made the break in the 23rd minute by deceiving the Nantes goalkeeper with a shot from the right, after multiple feints in the area. Blas, again, sealed the success of Nantes in the 80th. Second success of the season for Nantes, who had already won against Angers last February (3-1), for the first match of Antoine Kombouaré on the bench of the Canaries.
With this clear victory, Nantes moved from 17th to 10th place in the championship.
The SCO remain third with 11 points but could see Olympique Lyonnais come back to their level if they win against Paris Saint-Germain tonight at 9 p.m.
The good draw: lively derby between Nice and Monaco
In a meeting played behind closed doors, a month after the excesses of the meeting between Nice and Marseille, the Aiglons and AS Monaco failed to decide (2-2).
A little shy in the first half despite a goal from Golovin for the Monegasques in the 39th minute, the attackers especially woke up in the second half, like Andy Delort, who scored his first goal in his new colors, well served by Amine Gouiri (51st).
Hicham Boudaoui (74th) then Wissam Ben Yedder on penalty (77th) went from their goal.
Gouiri could have offered victory to the Nice at the very end of the match, but the striker completely missed his penalty.
Clermont and Montpellier save the furniture
Badly embarked on their respective meetings against Brest and Troyes, Clermont Foot and Montpellier both managed to win the draw (1-1).
Brendan Chardonnet had yet started the second half of Brest, scoring from a set piece, just after the expulsion of Auvergne midfielder Johan Gastien.
Same scenario in Troyes, with Touzghar opening the scoring in the 37th minute.
But the Aubois, yet in numerical superiority after the expulsion of Thuler (80th) cracked in the last minutes.
Téji Savanier came to save his people in the 87th minute, recovering from the right a cross from Gioacchini 15 m in the axis.

And also: Reims and Lorient silent
Reims and Lorient, two opponents in the middle of the table, parted in a draw, without being able to find the net (0-0).
The Lorientans were more "dangerous" in a game despite everything poor, with only three shots on target for Lorient, against two for the Rémois.
