Despite four defeats in a row in Ligue 1, in addition to elimination from the Coupe de France, Le Havre did not demobilize. Luka Elsner can all the more savor the victory at home against Toulouse this Sunday (1-0) as it was controlled from start to finish. The HAC left Toulouse only crumbs: zero shots in the first half, five shots, none of which were on target after half-time. With a goal full of panache from Christopher Operi, Le Havre consolidated their 12th place in the standings and remains in a favorable position for maintenance.

He wasn’t satisfied, so he changed almost everything. At the hour mark, coach Adi Hütter made three changes. Winning coaching: thanks to two of its entrants, Monaco ended up shaking the Strasbourg nets. Maghnes Akliouche made the difference with the ball before finding Eliesse Ben Seghir for the conclusion of a precise and powerful strike (72nd). “Me and Maghnes, we have automatisms, we like to play together,” analyzed the 19-year-old striker at the microphone of Amazon Prime Video.


There is a bad smell in Clermont, that of the return to Ligue 2 after the first rise in the elite in the history of the club, in 2021. The 18th in L1 lost to the 17th, Metz (1- 0), in a match that counted double. “That was the goal, to put them at 6 points,” Metz defender Christophe Hérelle told Amazon Prime Video. Uninspired in attack, Clermont was especially distressingly feverish in defense. A misunderstanding between Mory Diaw and Andy Pelmard almost led to an early goal from George Mikautadze (26th). The Georgian had to wait for a penalty following an avoidable foul by Pelmard on Maxime Colin to score the only goal of the match (32nd). Perhaps the one who will condemn Clermont.

There was reason to get excited after three consecutive victories in the championship, and especially when it came time to travel to Le Havre, which remained on four defeats. However, it was TFC who played like a promoted team, unable to create danger offensively. Zero shots at half-time, five of which none were on target afterwards: Carles Martinez Novell’s players offered a very poor copy under the sun at the Océane stadium. Not sure that the Stadium will enjoy such a performance, if it were to happen again, next Friday against Lyon.
