Evian TG FC news:

Crash No 2. After the defeat 3-0 to Caen, there was another emphatic one 6-2 away against Rennes. They started to chase the score from the 6th minute. Although they scored the equalizer in the 35′ they conceded two goals before the end of halftime. In the second part they simply crumbled and could not assert anything from the game.

An exception to the general very bad image of the team was striker Wass who scored both goals in the 35′ and 83′.

Coach Dupraz completely disappointed after the second heartbreaking appearance said: “I’m angry and I feel shame. We must get out of this situation as soon as possible. “

France League 1 – St Etienne vs Reims 17/08/2014

St Etienne news:

The “Stephanais” showed the same things as last year’s team. Totally cynical, they had control over midfield, they hypnotized their opponent and brought the game exactly where they wanted.

Low pace and not many chances, they scored just before halftime with a penalty of Erding (was won by Hamouma).

Same play for the next 45 minutes of the match. With relative ease they faced the pressure received and they managed to score again in the 92′ with the same player.

The French-Turkish striker is in excellent condition and continues scoring this year.

Reims news:

To get a draw against PARIS SAINT GERMAIN is by itself a huge success.

They were worse than their wealthy opponents and found themselves been back in the score early. They were spared a penalty and managed with 100% accuracy in the chances created to score two goals (22′ Oniangue, 34′ Devaux).

They upheld unsustainable pressure as long as the minutes were passing and got drawn.

They saved a goal just over the goal line and eventually they got the one point with great difficulty.

France League 1 – Marseille vs Montpellier 17/08/2014

Marseille news:

In fact we live the Bielsa era watching the best game show in the premiere. The ball was going up and down in a crowded stadium. It’s the joy of every football fan.

They found themselves been back in the score before ten minutes were completed but they achieved a full comeback with two goals by Gignac (11 ‘, 62′ pen.) and Romaric’s own goal (17’).

They paid the big pressure highly on the field and the lack of defensive concentration, conceding two goals in eight minutes. The end of the match was identical while due to luck they did not conceded more goals.

The comeback of the goalkeeper (captain) Mandanda was significant, where the truth is that he did not played very well.

The club is very close to the transfer of Lucas Mendes to Qatar.

Their last addition is the attacking midfielder Barrada.

Montpellier news:

They showed a very poor appearance in a game that lacked quality in general. They found themselves been back in the score just before the twenty minute and despite the (few) spirited efforts to take over the reins of the game, they did not managed to beat the goalkeeper.

More than obvious is the absence of last year’s captain Cabella.

Finally they managed to complete the borrowing of the Paraguayan Lucas Barrios (15 app./1 goal   Spartak Moscow) and perhaps to reduce the nagging of Courbis for quality offensive line.
