🚨 ASSE is scuttled (again) in Nice!

For this meeting, Pascal Dupraz innovates, not in the system where the 3-5-2 is always in order but with the return within the defense of Saidou Sow en lieu and in place of Mickael Nade. For the rest of the classic, except for the return of Youssouf in midfield in the absence of Gourna suspended. Boudebouz also returns in support of nordin and Bouanga.

In the first moments, on a high recovery, nordin serves Bouanga who is going to provoke Todibo and strikes left foot, Benitez catches the ball twice. That’s a shame, nordin was all alone at the penalty spot. The Nice are trying to react but Delort has not yet set the target, fortunately for the Saint-Etienne defense. Nevertheless, the Greens project themselves very well and nordin and Bouanga find themselves marvelously but cannot come to a conclusion for the moment. Just say it for it to be the case: on a new high recovery, Mason strong cross in front of goal and Bouanga catapults chest leather deep into nets. If the goal is initially disallowed for offside, the Gabonese sees the VAR finally validate the goal (0-1, 11th). If the Greens leave possession of the ball to the people of Nice, they manage this first half rather well by defending much higher than ten days ago in Rennes and this is felt considerably on the Saint-Etienne performance. Rear, Saidou Sow is currently perfectly successful in his return to the Saint-Etienne rear guard. Here again, it is enough to say it for the reverse to take place: on a fault of sow, Delort equalizes on a free kick but fortunately for the Greens, he was offside when the ball left. Instead of returning to the locker room with a score of parity, it is finally with two goals in advance that the Greens will pass half-time: on a new recovery of sow, Bouanga does a superb job before shifting Boudebouz who centers right foot for Youssouf who with a flat volley of the left foot finds the small net of Benitez (0-2, 45th+5).

The Greens begin the second act as they finished the first: Youssouf collects a good high ball and serves Bouanga whose full-axis strike is captured in two stages by Benitez. Unfortunately for the Greens, defensive fragility will take over: on a harmless action, bard takes advantage of the laxity of the green defense as well as a Bernardoni not at all decisive on the spot to reduce the mark (1-2, 52nd). The Stéphanois goalkeeper is absent in this second half: on a free kick with a wall placed in a rather approximate way, the full axis strike of Delort pierces the goalkeeper on loan from Angers (2-2, 60th). The Stéphanois are ridiculous in this second period, in the process the defensive alignment is to be censored from all football schools, Delort scores a double (3-2, 62nd). The Greens sank in ten minutes. The Stéphanois are trying to get back into the game, Camera is on the reception of a second ball from 25 meters, but his shot is caught by Benitez. The chalice to the dregs for the Greens: on an aerial duel won by Delort on Mangala, Boudaoui finds the opposite side netting thanks to Silva’s unlucky deflection (4-2, 80th). Aouchiche is not far from reducing the mark at the very end of the match following a good combination with Camera but he stumbles on Benitez. Crivelli missing in additional time the inevitable on a perfect service ofHamouma. Nothing will be scored, new incredible mental bankruptcy for the Greens who led two goals to nil at the break.
