The Girondins of Bordeaux played this Thursday, September 22 at 6:00 p.m. a friendly match to fill this international break. It was in Limoges facing the Clermont Foot Auvergne 63.
The game ended with a 2-3 loss in the last minutes of the game. The score does not reflect the content of the match. The men of David Guion were nevertheless able to have playing time for some and discover the professional level for others.
The opportunity for us to deliver the TOPS and FLOPS players from FCGB during this meeting:
TOPS: Sissokho / entry of Bakwa / Depussay
Issouf Sissokho: The Malian midfielder was lined up from the start against Clermont Football. David Guion wanted to give him playing time because he is counting on him for the next matches and the least we can say is that Issouf has given him back this confidence! He was in all the shots in midfield. In the first period, Bordeaux largely dominated the debates, even if they did not manage to concretize the score. Issouf Sissokho was everywhere, very fair technically, game acceleration and remarkable handling and ball protection. He was the boss of the Bordeaux environment. At the exit of Yoann Barbet he even got the captain’s armband back for the second half. A very good performance which means that the Malian must play this season!
Entry by Dilane Bakwa: Again the attack Girondine struggled during this game. The first period was rich in possession but poor in chances and especially in finishing. Logan Delaurier-Chaubet had trouble finding the duo Aliou Badji – Josh Maja and the latter have often missed the last gesture. At halftime David Guion brought in Dilan Bakwa, left on a 4-3-3 and we saw the difference. He pushed back the Clermont defense before it cracked against his percussion. If he missed the last gesture at times, the young winger brought a real plus in front, scored a good goal and showed that this season we could not do without him.
Emeric Depussay: It’s a great reward for the young midfielder to be in the Tops of this match. Positioned in the right piston at the start of the match, in a 3-5-2, he once again helped out without complaining about the task. Not hesitating to take the lane, he also defended well even if at times the Clermont striker forced him to take risks. In the second half he regained his position in midfield and there too he did the job. Rather precise in his supported passes, Emeric Depussay acted as a leader in this young team. He’s used to it, he was the captain of this young guard last season in National 3during the second half of the championship.
FLOPS: Fransergio / Delaurier-Chaubet / Barbet
Fransergio: It’s cruel but we don’t even need to change the photo of the Flops anymore because the Brazilian is there again… It’s not relentlessness against him but the sad reality. We would like to see a Fransergio in the Tops, author of a successful performance but this is not the case… At the start of the match we saw him go up 2-3 times, attempt two shots, one which will end up in the goalkeeper’s gloves, the other crushed and countered… then that’s it. Oh yes, on the second goal from Clermont, he is overtaken by a loss of ball and drops the mark. This is too often the case, his lack of impact and speed which are lacking in midfield. When we see the benefits ofIssouf SissokhoofEmeric Depussay and even the second period ofEmilien Makagniwe wonder how David Guion will be able to leave the totem of immunity to the Brazilian…
Logan Delaurier-Chaubet: The young player had been positioned in one of the positions he likes, attacking midfielder. In a 3-5-2 system at the start of the match, he was at the point of the middle, just behind the duo Aliou Badji – Josh Maja. But Logan struggled to locate himself on the pitch. He often found himself on the same line as the attackers, making him a 9. He did not weigh on the first period except for a few incursions which were not finished, the last gesture n not always being good. In the end, he may be more comfortable on one side. Substituted at half-time by Dilan Bakwa.
Yoann Barbet: The captain did not have it easy once again. Placed in a central three defense but not on the side he played when he was at Queens Park Rangers, Yoann Barbet could not prevent the team from conceding two goals in the first period. If he is not directly involved in the goals, he could not be the boss we all hope for. But it was only a friendly match and we know it will get stronger. Let’s not forget that he went a long time without playing an official match. Replaced at the 62nd by the young Emmanuel Biumla.
