This had not happened since 1977. During the day of the resumption of the French Championship, the nets shook 34 times this weekend, enough to offer its share of spectacle to all lovers of Ligue 1.
Only one meeting (Angers-Nantes) ended in a goalless draw. On the other lawns, there were goals everywhere. On average, 3.4 goals have been scored in each game. This high total is explained in particular by the cards of certain clubs. PSG made short work of Clermont in a match where Messi shone (0-5), Losc reminded Auxerre of the demands of the elite (4-1) and Tudor’s OM reassured with great success at the Vélodrome on Sunday evening (4-1). Goals, there were also in the close and prolific matches between the victory of Montpellier of Téji Savanier against Troyes (3-2), and that of Lens against Brest (3-2) thanks to the hat-trick of Sotoca, in the lead. scorer ranking.
In 1977, 42 goals had been scored for the resumption of the championship. But the record for goals on a single day belongs to the 1945-1950 season with no less than 55 goals scored. To break the record for goals scored in a season, Ligue 1 strikers will have to increase their performance even more, since in 1945-1946, the average goals scored per game was 3.51, for a total of 1,334 goals scored during exercise.
Last season, the first day was more timid (26 goals), and this total of 34 goals was only reached 6 times, including on the second day of Ligue 1. The record for the 2021 season- 2022 is 38 goals, scored on Matchday 31.
