end of series for Rennes, Gerson’s gem for OM, silent PSG … what to remember from the end of the 16th day

Wednesday evening, after an avalanche of goals to start the 16th day, it is towards the top of the Ligue 1 table that we had to look. Paris first signed a sad 0-0. A draw which does not endanger the first place in Paris, Pochettino’s men being far ahead of Marseille. Thanks to Gerson, OM won at La Beaujoire and stole the runner-up place in Rennes. The Bretons conceded a defeat at home. The first in some time …

The end of the series: Rennes falls

It hadn’t happened since September 19. After a series of thirteen games without defeat, European Cup and Ligue 1 combined, Stade Rennes lost tonight (1-2). However, it is Lille usually uninspired on the outside who have succeeded in this coup. In eight days, they had won only one game away from their bases. It is now ancient history. Xeka (31st) then Sanches (45th) allowed the Mastiffs to win despite the late score reduction from Rennes.

The beautiful story: Yohann Magnin signs his return with Clermont

He was released on injury, victim of a rupture of the anterior cruciate ligament of the right knee, in the anonymity of Ligue 2 and its empty stadiums last April. Replacing last weekend in Reims, Yohann Magnin was back in the skin of a holder this evening against Lens. As a symbol, it was he who scored the goal of the equalizer in the 40th (1-1). A goal celebrated as it should by the child of the club. In the end, Clermont conceded the draw (2-2).

Le but : Gerson do Brasil

Directed control, U-turn on the spot and big volley from the left: Gerson is back. His arrival this summer on the planet Mars’ for 20 million had augured the most beautiful things. A Brazilian, technical and spotted by Pablo Longoria, the cocktail had something to seduce. On paper at least. In fact, the Brazilian is struggling to convince, with only one goal in fourteen games so far. Against Nantes, in addition to his activity in the game, he stood out with a superb goal. Enough to offer victory to OM. And give yourself a little credit with the supporters.

The stat: silent Paris at the Parc for the first time this season

Brilliant intermittently since the start of the season, the Parisians have remained silent tonight against Nice. It’s the first time this season that Pochettino’s men haven’t scored in a home game. You have to go back to last season to find any trace of such a statistic. It was during a defeat conceded at home (0-1), against the LOSC of a certain Christophe Galtier …

The quack: Lyon falls at home

Unbeaten since the start of the season in their den at Groupama Stadium, the Lyonnais were surprised by Reims. The Rémois had taken the advantage thanks to Faes (56th), but Toko Ekambi allowed OL not to doubt too much by equalizing ten minutes later. It is ultimately Ekitike, well helped by a little inspired Lopes, who gave the victory to his team in stoppage time (1-2).
