“Still” Balogun to stay undefeated

The Will Still madness will continue.

Saved by a goal from Balogun in added time against PSG, he saw his series of unbeaten matches continue thanks to another great performance from his scorer in the Reims success against Lorient (2-0).

Author of a hat-trick, Folarin Balogun came to get his team out of a defeat which seemed written when Lorient led 2-0 after 36 minutes.

But in the space of 20 minutes, Balogun, now top scorer in Ligue 1 (14 goals), turned everything upside down.

The future looks bright for the player on loan from Arsenal.

The artist Branco van den Boomen

If Toulouse is so well ranked after 20 days (10th in Ligue 1), it is largely thanks to one man: Branco van den Boomen.

This Wednesday evening again, he allowed Toulouse to easily win against Troyes (4-1) by scoring a goal but above all by sending two assists.

Already decisive on 11 occasions (4 goals and 7 assists), he improves his partners as soon as he touches the ball like Dalinga, again scorer this evening on a pass from … Van den Boomen.

The Rennes offensive festival

And one, and two and three, zero!

Stade Rennais played their game against a weak team from Strasbourg.

Amine Gouiri scored a fine double, before being joined by Désiré Doué.

Youth in power in Brittany.

Genesio's players were efficient, consistent and cruelly lethal in attack.

The combinations were quick, clean and controlled.

Monaco in mind

If the first period was a formality for Monaco with quick goals from Wissam Ben Yedder (11th) and the young Eliesse Ben Seghir (30th), Philippe Clément's players had to dig deep inside them to avoid the comeback because Auxerre showed great things by reducing the score twice thanks to Matthis Abline (68th, 2-1) and Nuno Da Costa (84th, 3-2) in the wake of the third Monegasque goal signed Embolo (83rd).

AJA's second goalscorer even hit the post after Abline's goal.

Monaco sweated but pocketed an ultimately momentous, useful and comprehensive win to move forward.

Lille down in front of goal

Already silent against Nice this weekend (1-0 defeat), despite many chances, Lille failed to find the net on Wednesday and had to concede a draw on their lawn against Clermont (0-0 ).

However, they tried with 22 shots attempted by the Mastiffs, for only 5 on target.

And this is where the shoe pinches for the LOSC which struggles to be effective in the last thirty meters.

The choices are not the right ones and the last gesture is often imprecise.

Too bad for the men of Paulo Fonseca who nevertheless offers pleasant football.

But without the goals, something is missing.

Angers no longer knows how to win

The Angevins surely believed for a moment that their losing streak was going to come to an end this evening against Ajaccio.

And yet it is a new defeat that the SCO suffered this evening against the Corsicans (1-2).

Angers however led for 50 minutes after the opener of Sima (13th) against the Corsicans, apathetic for a long time, who did not show much.

But once again the SCO and its defense cracked for the first time (65th ') then a second time at the very end of the match (93rd) to beat the sad record of consecutive defeats in Ligue 1 (13).

Angers does not want to win...

Lens lets OM slip away

Here it is the first defeat of Racing Club de Lens at the Félix Bollaert stadium this season.

And this defeat is rather symbolic since by losing against Nice this Wednesday evening, the Sang et Or definitively lose their status as dolphins of PSG in the standings.

Marseille won just like Paris.

The train behind Lens is also celebrating with the successes of Rennes and Monaco.

Beware of the domino effect.

We will have to bounce back and forget this setback.

Strasbourg and Lyon worry

It's winded on the side of Alsace, especially in defense.

The defensive curtain was too easily pierced by the Rennes attack this evening.

Worse still, Rennes' second goal comes from a loss of the ball from the Strasbourg defence.

Communication is lacking and the defenders seem disorganized.

Add to that the refusal to try anything in attack and Racing quickly falls into a bland copy with nothing to remember.

On the OL side, there was better content but despite dominating, they are still unable to find the way to the goal.

However, the opportunities are there.
