Ligue 1 Round-Up Week 5

Updated: September 16, 2013

France kicked off again after the International break and some teams struggled but the teams with money (PSG and Monaco) seemed to cruise to victory and most of the top French teams weren’t looking forward to a mid-week Champions League fixture.

Bordeaux 0-2 PSG

PSG : Matuidi (30′), Lucas (64′)

Laurent Blanc returned to his old club where he showed them really what they’re missing. There weren’t a lot of chances in the first-half, only when Ibrahimovic put in a nice through ball for Matuidi to shoot in off the GK’s legs. Both teams had very few chances in the first-half. Bordeaux were shocking defensively and made it easy for PSG to put in through-balls. The second goal came from a through-ball where Lucas was on the end of a Tiago Silva pass and put it past the gaolkeeper easily because he’d gone to ground way too early, that was lucas’ first goal for PSG. All in all it was an easy victory for PSG and a miserable day for Bordeaux.

Valenciennes 1-3 St Etienne

Valenciennes : Melikson (80′)(Pen)

St Etienne : Corgnet (17′, 54′), Hamouma (48′)

St Etienne’s title challenge continued when Corgnet scored early on after the goalkeeper failed to catch a low cross that deflected into the path of Corgnet only for him to stick it in the back of the net. Valenciennes were unable to keep the ball in their own half which cost them dearly when they lost the ball then Hamouma striked the ball from far out to score a great goal. The third goal came when Valenciennes yet again were unable to get the ball out of their half then they left Corgnet in the box on his own with too much space and he punished them by scoring a reasonably easy shot to save. That didn’t stop St Etienne from continuously exploiting the Valenciennes defence who were terrible on the day. St Etienne were unfortunate to concede a penalty when the referee called for handball when the ball didn’t even touch the defenders arms, that didn’t stop Melikson from putting it away to give Valenciennes their first goal since the opening day of the season when they beat a woeful Toulouse team 3-0.

AS Monaco 1-0 Lorient

AS Monaco : Falcao (6′)(Pen)

Monaco started well by hardly letting Lorient have the ball and creating a few chances really early on and pressing for a goal. A great chance came from Moutinho when his free-kick was saved. Monaco were awarded a penalty when Falcao was tripped in the box by Lorient goalkeeper, Fabien Audard, and he was consequently booked, Falcao stepped up and slotted the penalty. In the second-half Lorient were a lot more positive even if they didn’t do as much as Monaco, but poor defending by Monaco gave Lorient a bit of hope. In the end Monaco hanged on to go back on top of the table having played a day after PSG and St Etienne both won.

Toulouse 1-1 Marseille

Toulouse : Ben Yedder (66′)

Marseille : Mendes (87′)

A surprising result considering that Toulouse hadn’t even won a game this season and that they’ve struggled. At the beginning, Marseille were making Toulouse defenders run all over the place. The first real chance came from Braithwite was so close to heading it into an empty net until Morel leaped up, just about reached it and cleared it over the bar. Payet had a great chance as Toulouse’s effort to clear a simple cross with no danger became catastrophic and left Payet to just score from close range but he failed to beat the goalkeeper. Marseille’s defence fell asleep as Toulouse passed it through them with Braithwite one-on-one only for him to pass it to his left to Ben Yedder to put it into an empty net. Marseille got back into it when Valbuena’s free-kick reached the far side of the box that was met by a powerful Mendes header which gave the goalkeeper no chance.

Ajaccio 2-3 Evian

Ajaccio : Lasne (81′), Tallo (86′)

Evian : Dja Djedje (31′), Berigaud (43′, 52′)

The game started with high intensity and sloppy play from both sides giving each other easy chances and both being wasteful in scoring them. The first goal came from a superb Dja Djedje free-kick that came off the bar and went in. Great free-flow passing from Evian all around the opposition’s half led to a well worked goal from Berigaud which was just smashed in. Beriguad scored again after half-time when Ajaccio went to sleep and were opened up only for Beriguad to receive the ball on the edge of the penalty area and easily slotting it home on a tight angle. Evian’s failure to clear a long ball meant that Lasne’s close range shot

put Ajaccio back into the game. Ajaccio’s come-back was well and truly on when the young forward, Tallo was allowed to turn in the box and shoot past the GK in the far-post.

FC Nantes 1-0 Sochaux

FC Nantes : Djordjevic (76′)

Nantes won the game reasonably easy as they were the team who created any of the chances in the game and they would have won comfortably if it wasn’t for Sochaux goalkeeper, Pouplin. The goal came when Djordjevic headed in without really being challenged when the free-kick came into the box. Pouplin continued until the end of the match and was without doubt the man of the match in a very lack-lustre match.

Lille 0-2 Nice

Nice : Cvitanich (20′, 45′)

Lille started the match eagerly trying to get the win, their bubble had burst when Nice scored, a low cross to outside the box was controlled and passed to Cvitanich with a nice chop and Cvitanich blasted it in. Their second goal came when they counter-attacked from their own half very quickly to put Lille on the back foot and Cvitanich received the pass when in the box just

so he could put it in the net. Ospina’s impressive performance stopped Lille from scoring as they aggressively tried forcing the ball into the net but were just unsuccessful.

Guingamp : Yatabare (88′)(Pen)

Bastia : Khazri (47′)

Hardly any chances were created in the first-half which made to be a very boring first-half. Khazri was left with a bit of space from very far out but it was enough time for his to shoot and score a spectacular goal. Diakite conceded a late penalty when he barged into Yatabare, Yatabare put away the penalty easily. Not so long after Modesto conceded another penalty which gave Guingamp the chance to go ahead for the first time in the match but Yatabare’s second penalty was weak but still spectacularly saved by Landreau.

Montpellier 0-0 Stade de Reims

Both sides were looking for a victory after picking themselves up from difficult starts to the season but as Reims look to progress from just about staying up and Montpellier looking to not be one of those teams that drops away after winning the title, these two clubs had both their different reasons, but this match ended in a goaless draw. Chances were created at both ends, both goalkeepers putting on good performances. Disappointingly this match ended drawless.

Lyon 0-0 Rennes

There were very few chances in this game and even those were “half chances”. I always want to avoid saying that a particular game was terrible to watch but I can’t say otherwise for this match, it just wasn’t a very good match at all with barely anything happening, even discipline wise, there was nothing interesting, only one yellow card.
