Nothing is going any more for the two monuments of French football that are Bordeaux and Saint-Etienne, beaten by Strasbourg and Brest this Wednesday evening during the 16th lifting of L1.
The hour is very serious for the Girondins and the Verts which, three days after biting the dust against Brest and Paris, sank again this Wednesday as part of the 16e Ligue 1 day. Untenable in this fall, the SB29 chained a fifth victory in a row (after 11 acts without to start his championship) to push the ASSE, on a single goal from Faivre from the penalty spot (1-0, 64e).
The Bordelais, for their part, have fallen heavily to Strasbourg (5-2) despite the early opening scoring from Hwang (7e). Thomasson (22e), Gameiro (43e, on penalty), Ajorque (45e+1), Liénard (48e) and Ajorque, again (65e), have turned the tide in large widths, making the reduction of the gap for one time totally useless, obtained by Elis (57e).
Besides Saint-Etienne and Bordeaux, Metz sinks a little more in the red after its defeat of the day for the benefit of Montpellier. Savanier, with a superb free kick (36e), Mavididi (45e+1) and Wahi (48e) struck for the Pailladins when De Préville, scorer in the second half, saved the honor of the Garnets (70e). The three clubs aroused are all the more in danger as Troyes, at the same time, took a good breath of air by falling Lorient (2-0). On realizations of Ripart (7e) and Kouamé (34e).
