Ligue 2. The notes of Saint-Etienne

A good anticipation outside his area to remove a ball from Wadji (15th), another in his area to win his duel against the same attacker (22nd). Powerless on the goal of Wadji (35th). Difficult to blame him for not leaving the volley of Mason, particularly well placed (67th).

Malcom Bokele: 6/10

We saw him little on the offensive level until his replacement in the axis after the injury of Mwanga. A little tender against Wadji who strikes aside (29th), but at the rendezvous in quick succession to remove a ball…

Malcom Bokele: 6/10

We saw him little on the offensive level until his replacement in the axis after the injury of Mwanga. A little tender against Wadji who hits wide (29th), but back in quick succession to remove a hot ball from Stéphanois and to counter a strike from Krasso (30th). He is the one who suffered the least and who was able to compensate for Barbet’s lack of speed. In addition, he is not far from offering a goal to Badji and Bokélé (80th).

Junior Mwanga: not rated

Right axis for the first time of the season, it begins with three impeccable interventions in the same minute (9th), always releasing this implacable serenity. He injured an adductor on a race (24th) and had to give way to Clement Michelin (rating: 4/10). The rookie from AEK Athens is much too passive on the opening of the Greens score (35th). Thereafter, he didn’t make a noticeable mistake even though he wasn’t ever Imperial defensively, nor did he bring danger to his lane. Interesting for shooting set pieces.

Yoann Barbet (c): 4/10

He never showed great serenity in the face of the attacks from Saint-Etienne, appearing slow in managing depth (lack of rhythm?). In his defense, he and his defense partners were not protected by their midfield. And to his credit, a good interception (41st). He has tried several times to remobilize his partners. Less in difficulty in the second period but unfortunate to see his head clearance fall on Mason who doubled the bet (67th).

Vital Nsimba: 4/10

He had a lot to do to manage the Saint-Etienne counterattacks and above all had a lot of waste. He loses a very hot ball which leads to a big chance for Krasso (27th), then another after a missed control (36th). Much better in the second half, with a delicious outside (56th) and a perfect roll, both not exploited by Bakwa. He is clearly more comfortable on the offensive plan than in defense, like this action where he is erased twice in five seconds by Krasso (66th).

Tom Lacoux: 3/10

He ran a lot, but almost all the time in a vacuum trying to fill the gaping spaces in the middle. His fault punished with a yellow card (44th) sums up his frustration, his helplessness and the inability of the Bordeaux block to contain the Greens in the first period. He raised the bar like the team at the start of the second period, but he never really regained the upper hand.

Danylo Ignatenko: 3/10

It starts on alternating current, with stupidly lost balloons and other more inspired transitions. He contributed to the good Bordeaux pressing of the first twenty minutes before giving up and suffering the debates, like his friends in the middle. Curiously, he seemed demobilized until half-time, like his passivity on the last Stéphane free kick. Woke up coming back from the locker room, more precise and bleeding in everything he did, until he forgot to follow Mason who will double the bet (67th).

Fransergio: 2/10

He begins his match with a full axis raise in the opposing feet and an attack ball played in moonwalk (and therefore lost). A nice tense shot diverted by Dreyer (7th), another country (9th), then he disappeared from circulation as soon as Saint-Etienne started to put his foot on the ball. We saw the Fransergio from last season, non-existent in the duels. A little better after half-time, but it’s still not enough, and sometimes just as slow even when space opens up in front of him.

Alberth Elis: not rated

He injured himself from the start (quadriceps?) and was replaced (12th) by Logan Delaurier-Chaubet (score: 3/10). The small attacking midfielder, positioned on the left, offered a lot but never weighed on the game and suffered on impact, like this ball lost full axis at the end of the first period. No more in sight afterwards. In turn replaced by Aliou Badji (73rd), who lacks promptness to take back a good handover from Bokélé (80th).

Josh Maja: 4/10

Concerned by the pressing, he tried to stand out but was not touched many balloons. A nice pivot opening to launch Bakwa (25th). He ransacks a ball recovered high by missing an improbable lob (38th) and strikes when the game called for a pass to one of his two unmarked partners in the area (43rd). A goal disallowed in extra time for having scored with the arm according to the referee (from the chest according to the Englishman) His hat-trick at Paris FC already seems far away.

Dilane Bakwa: 4/10
