The awakening: first victory for Le Mans
Le Mans can blow. After five defeats in as many games, the promoted manceau finally won against Sochaux, his first success of the season, and thus took his first points. First, a goal from Boe-Kane, from the 20th minute of play, delighted the 7,000 supporters present. Courageous, the men of Richard Désiré held more than one hour their advantage before doubling the stake by Maziz (87th, 2-0). With three points, the Sarthois leave the relegation zone.
The confirmation: Le Havre does not stop
Fourth consecutive win for Le Havre, leader of Ligue 2 this Friday night, pending the meeting of Lorient against Guingamp, this Saturday. Worn by a still flamboyant Kadewere and a Gorgelin in great shape, the Le Havre won on the lawn of Caen, a lively and festive Norman derby (0-3). The men of Paul Le Guen opened the scoring with Dina, on a perfect service from Kadewere (29th, 0-1) before taking shelter by Thiare, winner of his face to face in front of Riou (58th, 0 -2). But the party would not have been complete without a realization of the inevitable Kadewere (93rd, 0-3), his ninth goal in six games.
The end of the series: a fall for Clermont
Nice revelation of this early season, Clermont suffered a logical defeat in Valenciennes (1-0). With more realism, the Northerners could have even increased the score, as they were superior to their opponents in the evening. Valenciennes shot 16 times on goal and climbed to third place ahead of Clermont. The Auvergnats suffer their first defeat this season.
The story: another interruption in Nancy
It is a sad habit of the Marcel-Picot stadium at the beginning of the season. Like two weeks ago, Nancy was the scene of homophobic songs from some local fans. The match against Rodez was stopped a few minutes before taking again in the confusion. In sports terms, both teams shared points (1-1).
Châteauroux still has not scored any goals in the league this season.
