Troyes and Auxerre leave each other back to back

If the Trojan copy was less provided offensively, Mama Baldé (see below) continued its momentum. Launched on the left side, the Guinean center forward played the Auxerre side Rayan Raveloson thanks to a double contact, before serving back Rony Lopes for the opener (28th). The same Raveloson almost redeemed himself by unleashing a powerful cross shot at the entrance to the area, but Gauthier Gallon was saved by his amount (56th).

Apart from that, AJ Auxerre took a long time to initiate moves offensively. Symbol of this shyness: the Yonne players waited until the 83rd minute to frame their first strike of the game. Lacking technical accuracy, like their striker Gaëtan Charbonnier, clumsy on several checks and deviations, the Auxerrois failed to materialize their presence in the locals’ camp in the second half.

Christophe Pelissier’s men nevertheless showed self-sacrifice. At the end of the match, Gaëtan Perrin, returned in the 64th minute, opened his foot on a cross from Sinayoko to put his team back in the game (86th). After a timorous match so far, the Trojans have activated to leave with the 3 points. But twice (90th, 90th+3), Benoît Costil intervened and allowed Auxerre to preserve this hard-won result.

The player: Mama Baldé

The flash came from Mama Baldé. In the continuity of his double against PSG (4-3), the Guinean striker was very available on the front of the attack. Thanks to a nice double contact on the left side which dropped off Rayan Raveloson, Baldé was able to serve back Rony Lopes for the opener for Troyes (28th). We could blame him for his missed opportunity in added time against Costil, but Baldé was one of the only attacking players to show creativity.


With his assist for Rony Lopes, Mama Baldé has been involved in 9 goals in his last 11 Ligue 1 matches (6 goals, 3 assists).

This draw leaves the two teams stuck in the soft underbelly of the standings. Before the results of the other teams, Troyes is 12th (14 points), Auxerre 14th (13 points).
