They failed to double their victories in an informal rematch of the premiere of the league against Angers and lost 2-1. They were found early back to the score. They found the strength to equalize within minutes with Nouri (10 ‘), but they could not complete the overthrow.
In a balanced game, they created good chances for a second goal but they did not made it.
It seemed that they were not entirely concentrated in the competition as it was obvious from the statements of the coach Pasqualetti, “We’re going for the win, but we must definitely avoid the extra-time in order to be ready for Dijon on Friday.”
The movements of the coach Dall’Oglio gave the qualification against Tours.
They were down 2-0 until the coach changed the attacking duo and passed Diony and Babit in the match. Within 5 minutes they had brought the match in balance.
At 65′ the first one closed the gap while the second equalized at 71’. The match went into force thereafter (both teams received a red card).
Qualification came out on penalties with the goalkeeper Reynet saving the match for his team for one more time (2-4 the final score from the white dot).
