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.
