Nice lost and Monaco was just one point away


Nice deepened the mess where they were stuck for several days in the Bollaert-Delelis stadium defeat against Lens (3-0), which alienated Christophe Galtier’s team from Ligue 1 Champions League positions.

The Nice team has had four games without winning. It fell to fifth place, still in the European zone, but five points from the second place where it was installed before its crisis came.

Nice wasted a good chance against Lens, who after a quarter of an hour were left with one fewer players due to the dismissal of Malian Massadio Haidara. Franck Haise’s team fought in the lowlands until the break. Later, he took advantage of the visitors ’slots to take advantage of the scoreboard.

Within four minutes, Lens judged the game, opening the scoring in the 51st through Arnaud Kalimuendo, who replaced Cameroonian Ignatius Ganago in the intermission. After four, Malian Cheick Doucoure took advantage of the ball received by David Da Costa to beat Argentine Walter Benítez for the second time.

Nice went crazy. He also kept ten players as Gabonese Mario Lemina saw the second yellow card in the 57th minute.

Kalimuendo scored a third ten minutes later in a counterattack that ended perfectly to complete Nice’s difficult afternoon that ended with nine men as Dante was sent off in extra time.

Monaco beat Troyes (2-1)

Monaco beat Troyes (2-1), extended their winning streak and moved one step away from the European zone of Ligue 1, moving away for Lille, who did not go beyond the draw against Angers (1-1), in thirty -one days.

Three straight wins now add to Belgian Phillipe Clement’s team that beat Troyes at the Stade Louis II. The Monegasque team confirmed its improvement, having not had an easy match against Bruno Irles ’team, who are looking to seal safety as soon as possible.

He put the fight on the run in the 19th minute with a goal from Brazilian Caio Henrique, but before the break was equalized by Canadian Ike Ugbo.

It was in the second half, on the brink of playing time, when Kevin Volland’s victory ended to ensure local victory one point behind fifth -placed, Nice, which marks the European zone.

Gone is the current Ligue 1 champion, Lille, who didn’t go past the draw on their visit to Angers ’Raymond Kopa stadium (1-1). In fact, Jocelyn Gourvennec’s team, who got their second consecutive tie, had to react to avoid defeat.

It was Portuguese Tiago Djalo’s own goal in the 64th minute that complicated the game for Lille, who were able to balance the situation after ten minutes thanks to Kosovar Edon Zhegrova’s victory.

Gourvennec’s team is seventh, two points behind Monaco and three behind Nice. Eighth was Nantes who left the Francis Le Blé stadium in Brest with a draw (1-1).

Antoine Kombouare’s team is focused on their Cup final, having almost run out of goals in Ligue 1. Not in a hurry to stay but far from positions in Europe.

Against Brest, they took the lead after ten minutes on Randal Kolo Muani’s goal, but they failed to hold their advantage until late. In the 67th minute Brendan Chardonnet got the equalizer for the locals almost sealing their safety in the top category.

Ekambi saves a point for Lyon (1-1)

A last-minute goal by Cameroonian Karl Toko Ekambi prevented Strasbourg from winning and saved Lyon from defeat (1-1), still far from the top of Ligue 1, which this weekend completed thirty-one. day.

Peter Bosz’s Dutch team was five points away from the European zone where Strasbourg, who lost at the last minute, were installed in a duel they controlled.

Leo Dubois ’pass to the spot that Ekambi took advantage of in the 90th minute disappointed the locals running the game as they wanted since the 20th, when Ibrahima Sissoko defeated Anthony Lopes after receiving a ball from Ludovic Ajorque.

The last mark is not enough for both. The local team missed a good opportunity at Meinau stadium to settle for positions in Europe. It was fourth but with only a point advantage over Nice and two over Monaco, who accumulated three straight wins.

Lyon, who are also relegated to the Europa League and next Thursday will host West Ham in the quarter-final second leg, are tenth in Ligue 1.
