By winning Saturday in front of Clermont (2-1), during the 11th day of Ligue 1, the Canaries have as many points as OM, before the Classic.
The time of the worst fears for Nantes supporters seems quite far away. After an end of last season lived with anguish under the threat of relegation, the training led by Antoine Kombouaré displays a certain serenity. The results help her a lot to keep her spirits up.
Saturday, FC Nantes beat Clermont Foot, 2-1, registering a fifth victory after matchday eleven. The Canaries had only nine in 2020-2021. Thanks to goals scored by Girotto, upon receiving a free kick from Corchia (1-0, 38e), and Blas (2-1, 61), the Nantes have as many points (17) as OM, on the eve of the shock against PSG.

We will also remember that the referee was at the very least severe when he expelled the Auvergnat Guests for a mood gesture equivalent to a yellow card (30e). On the other hand, the VAR team appeared on the tackle with their feet off the ground. Corchia on Nsimba, a few seconds after the opening of the scoring.
20 – Mohamed Bayo scored 20 league goals in 2021 (Ligue 1 + Ligue 2), no player from the two divisions did better over the year (tied with Kylian Mbappé). Acclimatized. @ClermontFoot pic.twitter.com/O9eYFXYWsf

The Nantes side was in turn excluded and the two teams found themselves at 10 before the break (41e). This rebalancing perhaps allowed Bayo to equalize (1-1, 49e). The Clermont striker scored on this occasion a 20e goal in the Championship this year (Ligue 2 then Ligue 1).
An insufficient performance to prevent the victory of the Canaries, finally rewarded for their domination.
