Football (Ligue 2, 3rd day): Bordeaux / Niort (1-0): Narrow, but precious…

August 13, 2022

In Rodez a week earlier, the cause had been quickly heard. This time, the Girondins were able to be patient before forcing the Niortais lock on the hour mark, on one of their rare clear chances, in pain, as always against their Aquitaine neighbor. A luminous deep pass from Maja, which thus saved his match, allowed Delaurier-Chaubet, alone against Michel, to concretize the best period of the Girondins in an undecided game until the end and much more pleasant after the lemons. The Chamois missed the boat in the first half, and once also in the second on a shot from Boutobba slammed for a corner by Poussin. With this 3rd consecutive clean sheet which already makes it the only L2 team not to have conceded any goals (when we think back to last season, we wonder if we are talking about the same sport and the same team…) , and this first victory at home since April 10, Bordeaux remains at the top of the classification in the wake of Guingamp and Caen, both slowed down. The young class does the job in the field, with seriousness and selflessness. Now, it would be time for things to settle down behind the scenes too before the cursor, sooner or later, turns out to be a little too high for the current group.

The Niortais players are gradually starting to show themselves, as proof of the 3 corners obtained in a few minutes. Bilal Boutobba tries to play the Girondine defense but can’t (20th 0-0).

Cross from the left of Bakwa but Fransergio, badly positioned, misses his header at the far post (26th, 0-0)

Second Gironde opportunity for Dilan Bakwa and this beautiful shot from a closed angle from the left, repelled by goalkeeper Michel who closed the angle well (32nd 0-0).

Bilal Boutobbabest player on the Niort side, center from the right but behind Merdji who cannot resume at the penalty spot, while the Gironde defense was out of position (43rd, 0-0)

At halftime the score is nil and goalless in this derby, Bordeaux must find solutions in front.

Bordeaux pushes and on a deep pass from Josh Maja, Logan Delaurier-Chaubet deceives the Niort goalkeeper with a flat left foot, with composure (61st 1-0).

Delaurier Chaubetlaunched on the left wing, resists Kilama who slips, before finding himself alone against Michael. He stings his ball well but the Niort goalkeeper with a firm hand, has the right reflex (64th, 1-0).

Chickwho had a scare on a miss two minutes earlier after a harmless back pass, catches up magnificently by flying away on a curling strike from Butobba who spun in the skylight, and deflected for a corner (69th, 0-0).

Launched by the young Louis-Jean, Bakwa center set back from the left and Elis, alone at the penalty spot, surprises Mathieu Michel with the flat of his right foot. But M.Angoula refuses this goal for a questionable offside at the start of the action (1-0, 80th).

Bordeaux wins this match logically and joins Guingamp, held in check in Dijon (2-2) at the head of this Ligue 2 championship.
