Ligue 1: Reims and Nice neutralize each other, Montpellier confirms

Reims-Nice : 0-0

He will only have missed the goals in this confrontation for the European places. There will have been a lot of pace and each team will have had opportunities to make a difference. Especially in the first half. Rémois Atangana (12th) and Munetsi (19th) came close to opening the score, as did Jérémie Boga on a free kick, repelled by Diouf (24th) but especially when he was alone at the far post facing the empty goal ( 42nd).

As the match progressed, we felt the two teams were finally satisfied with this draw which still leaves them in the race for Europe.


Since SDR’s return to Ligue 1 in the summer of 2018, the Reims-Nice match has ended 0-0 most often (six times). This is even double that of any other meeting over this period in the elite.

Montpellier-Lorient: 2-0

Clearly, as is often the case this season, the Lorient residents will have a lot of regrets after this meeting against Montpellier. The Bretons dominated their opponent for a long time, especially in the first period (8 shots to 3, 5 corners to 1). But once again, he lacked efficiency as in this shot from Bamba, at the penalty spot, repelled by goalkeeper Benjamin Lecomte (34th).

Sometimes worrying, apathetic, Montpellier escaped with a penalty from Téji Savanier (55th) and a counter goal from Karamoh, at the very end of the match (90th + 1). Previously, Kari had found the crossbar of Lecomte’s goals (68th) and the Montpellier goalkeeper had released a strike from Julien Ponceau (85th). Lorient still remains 16th and barrage.

Toulouse-Strasbourg : 0-0

We are not far from thinking that the draw satisfied the two teams who, with the defeats of Metz in Brest and Lorient in Montpellier, maintain a fairly good margin in the red zone. Except for a header from Logan Costa (4th), a few attempts from Dallinga (29th, 56th, 66th) on the Toulouse side, a semblance of an opportunity for Bakwa (50th) for Strasbourg, the meeting was poor and barren in terms of clear scoring opportunities. One point each. And that’s all.
