The Red Star had a great week from an accounting point of view. Three days after their great success in Bourg-en-Bresse (0-4), the Audoniens won this Friday against SC Lyon (1-0) during the 13th day of National. After a failed start to the season, Vincent Bordot’s men continued their climb in the standings, now occupying 2nd place, 6 points behind the Bastia leader, but with one game less.
What you must remember
In a closed and balanced first act, the Red Star opens the scoring on his first opportunity. Lyon defender Pierre-Charles hangs Gomel in the box. Bizet transforms the penalty by taking Hautbois on the wrong foot (1-0, 36th). It’s his 3rd goal this season. On returning from the locker room, the Audonian striker passes very close to the double but his strike crashes on the crossbar of Hautbois (58th). After a month without playing, the Lyon red lantern – still looking for his first success (5 draws and 5 defeats) – emboldened at the end of the game but the attempts are too approximate to hamper the defense of the Seine club- Saint-Denis which reaped a precious success.
Player of the match: Jimmy Roye
The tireless versatile midfielder Jimmy Roye was omnipresent in the midfield during a closed and tactical meeting. The 32-year-old player who passed through Paris FC, Niort and Gazélec Ajaccio, raked a lot of balls but he was also very active offensively. It was he who launched Gomel in depth on the action bringing the penalty. After the break, he came close to registering an assist by throwing Bizet deep but the striker missed his duel. Roye is also released from some thankless tasks since the arrival of Senegalese international Cheikh Ndoye (ex-Angers, L1), intractable this Friday in the air.
The number: 5
After a missed start to the season (no success in the first 4 days), the Red Star is gaining momentum by recording a 5th success (ahead of Concarneau, Créteil and Lyon and traveling to Laval and Bourg-en-Bresse) during the last 7 matches. A series that allows the candidate for the ascent to leave the red zone to be now 2nd and in position to climb to L2.
The sentence: Vincent Bordot
“In relation to their investment, the players are rewarded. I was amazed at our good first 70 minutes, we had energy, energy, it was really interesting. We find ourselves second, it’s a satisfaction but I had already said after the first match against Bastia (3-5 defeat at the Bauer stadium) that this group had values which correspond to what I like. “
