Sofiane Boufal (Angers) uncertain against Monaco, blur in the goal

For the trip from Angers to Monaco, this Sunday at 3 p.m., as part of the 13th day of Ligue 1the SCO coach, Gérald Baticle, cast doubt on the identity of the goalkeeper responsible for guarding the goal of the worst defense in Ligue 1 (29 goals conceded).

Convincing during the summer preparation, Paul Bernardoni had started the season in the shoes of number 1, which seemed promised to rookie Yahia Fofana. But after a rout in Lyon (0-5, 6th day), Baticle turned the tables, by establishing the former Le Havre. Last Sunday, in the absence of Fofana, hit in the knee, Bernardoni had regained his place in goal against Rennes (1-2) against whom he had performed correctly.

Doumbia is forfeited

Recovered from his boo to a meniscus, Fofana resumed training this week. This Friday, during the pre-match press conference, Baticle refused to say who would be the starting goalkeeper in the Principality. “They are two very good goalkeepers, who are close to each other (in terms of level). These are choices to be made, eluded the SCO coach. I already have an idea but I’m not going to communicate it so as not to communicate it to our opponents. » Bernardoni, who had preceded him in the pre-match press conference, assured that he did not know ” absolutely not “ whether it would be aligned or not: ” I do not know. Honestly, no one told me. »

The only certainty: the left side Souleyman Doumbia (ankle) is forfeited. The presence of Sofiane Boufal is also uncertain. Absent from collective training for the past two days for muscle pain (calf), the Moroccan international, the player most involved in the goals scored by the SCO since the start of the season (3 goals, 3 assists) had to pass an MRI in the afternoon.
