Two months after a first match stopped at the Allianz Riviera, Nice and OM failed to break up on Wednesday night in Troyes (1-1). A null result that does not suit anyone.
On August 22, theOGCN and theIF had left in chaos at the Allianz Riviera. Two months later, it was behind closed doors, on the lawn of the Stade de l’Aube in Troyes, that Niçois and Marseillais met to replay this match of the 3e Ligue 1 day which had not been able to go to an end because of the excesses of the supporters of the Riviera.
The Aiglons, who were leading 1-0 at the time of the stoppage of the meeting, picked up where they left off by opening the scoring very early. But they finally had to share the points on Wednesday night (1-1). A result that does not suit either of the two teams since they both miss the opportunity to take second place in the championship alone behind PSG.
Payet is class
Frustrating for Christophe Galtier’s players, who started this “replay” as it should be. Served in the surface by Evann Guessand, Amine Goiri coldly adjusted Pau Lopez, scoring his sixth goal of the season (1-0, 6e). An advantage that the Gym only held for half an hour, until the equalization of Dimitri Payet just before half-time (1-1, 42e).
Receiving a pass from Gerson, which Arkadiusz Milik cleverly let pass, the Olympian metronome erased Melvin Bard with a nice oriented control before bringing his own up to speed. A class gesture that did not give new impetus in the second half to a little blunt Ciel et Blanc, who can thank Pau lopez, author of a precious judgment (50e).
