Sow Sow Madness
Discovering the professional level this season at just 18 years old, Saïdou Sow confirms his precocity. Very often timely in his interventions, the defender from Saint-Etienne still delivered a solid match against the pair Yilmaz-David. An edge fault against Yilmaz, but in the process, he released an impeccable tackle to repel the danger. Madness in the middle of the surface, but not for him who still showed serenity throughout the meeting. Add to that a save in front of his line on a shot from Yilmaz (90th), and we get an almost perfect match.
Kolo signs his return
Discarded after a cataclysmic performance against Monaco, the ex-Tigres returned to grace last Sunday against Marseille. Replacing at short notice Moukoudi, injured, Kolodziejczak delivered a successful match with three points at the end. Yesterday, against a more dangerous formation, he reassured. Clean with his foot, he also distinguished himself by making a superb tackle against Yilmaz at the start of stoppage time (90 ‘).
New clean sheet for the Stéphanois goalkeeper, the third in seven games, and the second in a row. A production made possible by an applied defense of course, but also thanks to its seriousness in the cage. This Sunday, he faced two shots on target from Lille, twice he was present. On a long shot from Soumaré (57th) then taking a plunging free kick from Yazici with a superb cuff on his upright (90th). Beyond these responses to the immediate dangers, he relieved his defense on several occasions by going for air balloons.
Nordin still ghostly
Once again, the Saint-Etienne lane player did not have the offensive input hoped for. If his defensive efforts were beneficial for Debuchy who sank on his exit, he annihilated many situations for the Greens. By bad choice sometimes, but especially by technical errors on its controls or in its transmissions. He could even have cost the Greens a goal in the first half on one of his lost balls (35 ‘). A new game to forget for this player who is struggling to confirm the promises made at the end of last year.
