FC Nantes: Lafont and Kolo Muani spoils the premiere of Dupraz… the 5 lessons

Zapping But! Football Club Diego Maradona: the world of football pays tribute to El Pibe de Oro

Pascal Dupraz misses his baptism of Cauldron

We hoped that, for his first in Geoffroy-Guichard as coach of the Greens, Pascal Dupraz manages to breathe life into his team. It missed. For 45 minutes, it was disappointing in intentions with a game of abysmal poverty and two chances obtained by miracle. He had better then with the combined entries of Aouchiche and Youssouf to replace Trauco and Neyou. Unfortunately, as under Claude Puel, the match turned on the wrong side again on an individual achievement. Pascal Dupraz is therefore not a magician.

Nantes knows how to win without Blas … and with Turpin

We wondered how Antoine Kombouaré would configure his team without Ludovic Blas. The answer came from a fairly classic 4-3-3 with the return of Andrei Girotto to the low point in the middle and Marcus Coco to the right. As in Montpellier (2-0 defeat), the Canaries did not show much offensively. But this time the FCN made the difference on a flash from Randal Kolo Muani. The young Nantes man ended a black streak of 13 games without a win with Clément Turpin on the whistle. The second series that Nantes de Kombouaré breaks after that of the penalties.

Lafont, the man of the match

Two stops in the first period (Trauco, Nordin), five stops ahead of Aouchiche and Khazri (twice each) and Nordin in the second act, the Nantes captain held the house as in every match this season. The only time he was beaten, Jean-Charles Castelletto replaced him on his line.

Kolo Muani iced the Cauldron

Non-existent until the 83rd minute, “RKM” is the author of the match. The international Espoirs took the ball, reviewed the defense of the Greens before crucifying the unfortunate Stefan Bajic with a powerful strike in the center …

The Kops, still angry, pushed

If they were only 23,681 in the Cauldron, the return of the Kops was felt. Kops who “sang for their colors” more than for the team, the managers and the new coach and sent many messages. “Wednesday 9 pm: only morons are hot,” the Green Angels wrote to set the tone. Opposite, the Magic have sent many messages.

ASSE 0-1 FC Nantes, analysis

Beaten by a flash of Randal Kolo Muani (83rd), ASSE concludes 2021 with a defeat in the Cauldron against FC Nantes (0-1). So there was no Dupraz miracle. What to remember from this sad nostalgic for Ligue 1.
