Strasbourg wins with forceps against Angers and moves away from the red zone

The 24th day of Ligue 1 continued this Sunday with a poster at the bottom of the table between Strasbourg and Angers, respectively 17th and red lantern of the elite of French football, on the side of the Meinau stadium in Alsace. This meeting was therefore an opportunity to see two formations in great difficulty since the start of the season with an objective shared by all the players, to win the three points to continue to believe in the maintenance. It was also the first of Frédéric Antonetti, who arrived this week on the Alsatian bench to save the club from relegation.

The start of the meeting was to the advantage of Strasbourg. The Alsatians also found the fault before the end of the first quarter of an hour. Habib Diallo was on the receiving end of a low center from Eduard Sobol and deceived Paul Bernardoni to open the scoring (11th, 1-0). Dimitri Liénard’s teammates continued to be the most enterprising in this part by installing a high block which allowed them to project themselves very quickly towards the opposing area as on Habib Diallo’s second goal. After a first header from Kevin Gameiro, the Senegalese striker placed an unstoppable header to score his 12th goal in Ligue 1 (43rd, 2-0).

Strasbourg breathes, Angers sweats

Just before the break, Cédric Hountondji collapsed in the Strasbourg area while Ismael Sissoko seemed to have made a mistake by holding the foot of the Angevin player but the referee of the meeting, Mr Letexier, did not flinch and the Strasbourgeois could get away (45th). Returning from the locker room, Morgan Sanson found himself in a good position, after a header from Habib Diallo, to attempt a volley which ended its race just above the Angevin crossbar (46th). A few minutes later, Angers finally showed himself to be dangerous in this encounter.

Ibrahima Niane controlled and chained quickly but Matz Sels dove to his right to deflect the ball with both hands on his post (54th). At the dawn of the last quarter of an hour, Nabil Bentaleb gave a little hope to the visitors on penalty while Abdallah Dipo Sima was pushed in the back by Eduard Sobol (74th, 2-1). Despite this reduction in the score and the opposing offensives at the end of the game, the Strasbourg residents managed to defend their small advantage. Thanks to this success, Strasbourg residents are completely relaunching themselves in the race for maintenance. Frédéric Antonetti’s players now occupy 15th place in Ligue 1. Angers, for its part, confirms its status as a red lantern and is sliding more and more towards Ligue 2.
