These matches on Sunday 3 p.m. in Ligue 1 were once again very lively.
Led 2-0 at half-time, Clermont finally won against Reims (2-4), thanks to their new recruit, Komnen Andric, while Angers drew against Auxerre (2-2) .
For its part, Toulouse recorded a great victory against Troyes (0-3).
The convincing Téfécé
After its draw against Nice (1-1) for its return to the top flight, Toulouse won in style against Troyes (0-3).
Dominating and offensive, Branco van den Boomen's teammates opened the scoring on a CSC from Larouci (36th).
However, they conceded many chances against Trojans without complex and could have been surprised several times (13th, 23rd, 45th).
They then took off with the achievement of Rafael Ratão, at the conclusion of a great collective action (54th), then on the breakthrough of Healey (85th).
With this victory against another candidate for maintenance, the Toulouse residents are reassured before receiving Lorient next week.
Clermont brings out the champagne
Clermont has indeed found the replacement for Mohamed Bayo, who left for Lille, with Komnen Andric.
After the slap received against PSG last week (5-0), the Auvergnats were the authors of a crazy comeback against Reims (2-4) this Sunday.
Led 2-0 after 30 minutes following two penalties from Kamory Doumbia (23rd) and Folarin Balorun (29th), Pascal Gastien's men overturned the match against Rémois reduced to 10 in the second period.

The Serbian rookie, who arrived from Dinamo Zagreb, Komnen Andric, sounded the revolt by scoring a penalty (52nd), before equalizing with a header a few minutes later (62nd).
He thus became the first Serbian player to score a double in Ligue 1 since Filip Djordjevic in 2013. Then, Muhammed Cham Saračević (72nd) and Jérémie Bela (78th) gave Clermont the logical victory.
AJA spoils at home
Angers spoiled the party this Sunday in Auxerre.
For the first time in ten years, the Abbé-Deschamps stadium has hosted an elite poster.
And the supporters remained on their hunger.
In front of a boiling public, Jean-Marc Furlan's men were hooked by Angers (2-2).

– AJ Auxerre (@AJA) August 14, 2022
However, AJA had started the game well by scoring two goals in just 10 minutes thanks to Julien Jeanvier (4th) and a CSC from Cédric Hountondji (10th).
Loïs Diony then reduced the gap on a cross shot from the left for Angers (22nd).
Yet well on their feet, the Auxerrois scuttled themselves alone, with the exclusion of Lassine Sinayoko (57th).
They then conceded a goal from the original Francilien Amine Salama (Montrouge), who scored for his first match in Ligue 1 (77th).
The Lensois hung in Corsica
On the damaged lawn of promoted Ajaccio, the Sang et Or failed in the quest for three points (0-0).
Yet offensive, Franck Haise's men failed to convert their chances (12 shots, 3 on target), against the Corsicans who were rigorous in defense and who tried everything on the counter-attack.
Benjamin Leroy also pulled off some great saves ahead of Frankowski (50th) and Fofana (90th+5).
In the fight to maintain, the Ajacciens record their first point before facing Rennes next week.
