On the occasion of the 4th day of Ligue 1 this Sunday, Montpellier won the biggest victory in Ligue 1 in its history (7-0), against Brest. At ten since the 21st minute, Angers lost to Troyes (1-3), who scored their first points this season. Finding his Moustoir, Lorient won against Clermont (2-1).
A record Montpellier, dark Brest
After two defeats in a row, Montpellier and Olivier Dall’Oglio were under pressure. The coach could not count on his captain, Téji Savanier, suspended for three matches. But thunderclap in Brest: Montpellier quickly led 3-0 thanks to Faitout Maouassa (5th), Sepe Elye Wahi (10th) and Wahbi Khazri (11th). Michel Der Zakarian’s team conceded a new goal from a deflected corner towards Nicolas Cozza, taking advantage of a passive defense (26th, 4-0). The Breton defense was not there at all. Sepe Elye Wahi scored twice a few minutes later (31st).
Brest did not start the second period better, with a direct red card from Pierre Lees-Melou (48th). His ordeal continued with a double from Valère Germain (64th, 84th). In addition to having sunk defensively, the Bretons did not frame the slightest strike. Thanks to this crushing victory (7-0), Montpellier obtained the biggest victory in Ligue 1 in its history.
Lorient is scared, Moffi treats
Lorient found the Moustoir to face Clermont, who remained on two rank victories in Ligue 1 before the meeting. It was the Clermontois who cracked first with a converted penalty from Terem Moffi (23rd, 1-0). The Lorient striker offered himself a double before half-time after eliminating the goalkeeper (41st, 2-0).
After seeing his second yellow card canceled by video assistance in the first period (45th), Neto Borges was definitively excluded for a late foul on Enzo Le Fée (48th). Despite his numerical inferiority, Clermont got chances and reduced the gap by Muhammed Cham (62nd). Pascal Gastien’s team could even have equalized in added time (90+4).
First points for Troyes, Rony Lopes decisive
On the Troyes side, Adil Rami and Rony Lopes were lined up from the start. The new recruit immediately proved decisive by delivering a cross for the opener of Renaud Ripart (12th, 1-0). Angers have played with ten since the expulsion of Batista Mendy, who received a second yellow card for his second foul (21st). Rony Lopes believed he had delivered a new assist for Thierno Baldé, but the goal was disallowed for offside (45+2).
Despite the domination of Troyes, it was Angers who reduced the score with Loïs Diony (68th, 2-1). The goal revived Gérald Baticle’s players, but it was the locals who drove the point home through Wilson Odobert (82nd, 3-1). With this victory, Troyes earned its first points in Ligue 1 this season. Angers remain on four games without a win.
