Nice and Auxerre neutralize each other but continue their good series

The 26th day of Ligue 1 starts in style. This Friday, on the Côte d’Azur, OGC Nice and AJ Auxerre (1-1) failed to decide, after a good game, pleasant and rhythmic for a long time, delivered at the Allianz Riviera. From the start, when Abline missed the target (2nd), the Auxerrois set the tone, letting it be understood that they had every intention of continuing their beautiful series of 3 games without defeat, including two wins in a row.

Christophe Pélissier’s men, although deprived of the ball, were sharper during their incursions into the camp of the Aiglons, who struggled to adjust their sights (7th, 15th, 17th, 23rd). Everything then accelerated when the former Monegasque Diop had to leave because of a knee injury and prematurely give way to Bouanani (34th). Because AJA took the lead a handful of seconds later, at the conclusion of a counter effort led by Abline and calmly finished by Hein (0-1, 36th).

Laborde, mentally strong

A double blow for the Nice who took even more thickness when Radu pushed back a penalty obtained by Thuram (held by Zedadka) and shot by Laborde (42nd). But the former Montpellier and Rennes striker has mental resources. In the continuity of an action initiated by the muscular recovery of a very leggy Rosario, Lotomba overflowed perfectly on his side before offering a delicious ball to Laborde, author of a beautiful diving header to redeem himself and equalize ( 1-1, 45th+1). It even took a new save from the Romanian goalkeeper on a shot from Boudaoui to prevent the locals from taking the advantage (45th + 4).

When we got back from the locker room, things calmed down a bit. Apart from the hour mark. Because if Dembélé saw his shot fly away in the bays of the Gym enclosure, Boudaoui forced Radu to relax and divert his attempt on the Auxerre bar (60th). Behind, the defense clearly took precedence over the attack, on both sides, until the final whistle.

Auxerre, united, held firm

The entries of Niang (75th) on the Auxerre side and Barkley (78th) for the Aiglons will not have changed anything. Didier Digard extends his unbeaten streak to 9 games since his arrival on the bench of OGC Nice, which misses the opportunity to get a little closer to European places. AJ Auxerre is undefeated for 4 games now, but only a small point ahead of the red zone in the Ligue 1 standings.
