Discover the tops and flops of the 21st day of Ligue 1, which always devotes as much Reims as it sinks Angers. On Wednesday evening, the two clubs respectively beat Lorient (4-2) and lost to Ajaccio (1-2).

The tops

Will Still

But where will the Stade de Reims series end? The Champenois now remain on thirteen games without defeat – fifteen including the Coupe de France –and the last eleven (including five victories) have been under the direction of the Belgian coach, a former assistant who succeeded his superior Oscar Garcia on October 13.

Azzedine Ounahi

This is enough to put the pressure on Vitinha for Sunday. Or show the way… For his first appearance, only entered for the last quarter of an hour to replace Alexis Sanchez, the revelation of the last World Cup sealed the victory of OM in Nantes (0-2 ) of a small number in additional time.

Gaetan Laborde

Several scorers would have deserved a mention on this 22nd day, such as Folarin Balogun (Reims) of course, Amine Gouiri (Rennes) author of a double or Eliesse Ben Seghir (Monaco) who confirms. But the Nice striker has just offered a second 1-0 victory in a row, and not the least, to Bollaert.

Les flops


If the Rémois have not lost for thirteen games, it is precisely the opposite for the SCO, which seems irremediably condemned to Ligue 2 in the face of so much mediocrity (eleven points behind Troyes, the first non-relegation) . It’s even worse than anything: thirteen defeats in a row, the historic record of the championship.


The Gones, fortunately for them, are not at the level of the Angevins. But on their scale, the players of Laurent Blanc do not display much better, stuck in tenth place in a kind of normality which should be disturbing for the seven-time champions of France, still held in check by Brest (0-0).

Morgan Sanson

The flagship rookie of Racing Club de Strasbourg, arrived from Aston Villa, plunged like the others in Rennes (3-0). Responsible for the second goal, he has a second setback in two games since signing in Alsace, with exactly the same playing time each time: 64 minutes which will not be a date.
