Savanier and Wahi treat the Mosson

Montpellier fans will remember this season as a rollercoaster season.

This Sunday, against Angers (5-0), the sun shone as much in the sky as Michel Der Zakarian's team on the lawn.

Téji Savanier showed the way as a worthy captain, author of his 9th and 10th goals of the season in Ligue 1. Wahbi Khazri, author of the opener after 2 minutes, also played fair.

The icing on the cake ?

The last goal scored by the incoming, Elye Wahi.

Starting from his own half of the field, glued to the sideline on the left, the French international hopeful put the Angevin defense on their heels before concluding with a precise strike from the left, small net.

Reims, the ogre of the soft belly

If you like numbers, take a look at the Reims season.

Since Will Still has been the coach, Reims have lined up 18 matches without defeat in the league, their victory against Ajaccio (1-0) included.

18 is also the number of points ahead of Auxerre, the first to relegate.

Maintenance is assured for the Marne club, 8th in L1 and which, at this rate, will dream of Europe.

The splendid shot from 18 meters by Jens Cadjus, after additional time (90th + 5) against Ajaccio, reinforced this feeling of a lucky star.

Beware, however, of the following: Reims will travel to Monaco next Sunday before receiving Marseille the following weekend.


Bentaleb freaks out, Angers no longer responds

Abdel Bouhazama had hinted at a certain resignation last week.

It is not after the humiliation on the lawn of Montpellier (5-0), and the exclusion of its captain Nabil Bentaleb, who will therefore be suspended against Toulouse, that the Scoist coach will see the good side of things.

Angers experienced an authentic ordeal at La Mosson, like the very avoidable tackle from Ilyes Chetti who offered the 2-0 penalty to the MHSC.

Warned for a foul before the hour mark (57th), Nabil Bentaleb did not have only sweet words for Mr. Millot.

Second yellow card in stride, game over.

If even the best player jumps ship, it's hard to imagine a positive end to the season for an adrift SCO.

Toulouse and the possibility of ruining everything

The face displayed by the TFC this season, especially for a promoted, is not that of a team that would make the lift.

But with three defeats in a row in the league, the TFC, 12th in Ligue 1, is not immune.

At home against Clermont, Philippe Montanier's players were muzzled (0-1) by the team ahead of them in the standings.

It would be a shame if Toulouse, which will play a semi-final of the Coupe de France against Annecy on April 6, gets the wrong objective.

Even if the opportunity of a first cut in its history makes your mouth water.

The good news ?

The Violets travel to Angers next Sunday (3 p.m.), which is, at the moment, a guarantee of taking points.
