“I didn’t like the first half and we can be satisfied to finish it 0-0”. David Guion did not make the language of wood at the time of the analysis. Unlike Rodez (3-0) where they had quickly won the victory with two goals in the first quarter of an hour, the Bordelais had a difficult start to the match on Saturday against Niort. A too lateral game, without movement, facilitated the work of the Niortaise defense organized in two lines of four players.

“In the first half, we had trouble putting our game, it was a placement problem,” confirmed defender Junior Mwanga. The team was split in two. Guion also targeted Dilane Bakwa “too wide” which prevented his side from splitting.

Not the same in the second half. Reframed at the break by their coach, Tom Lacoux’s teammates took matters into their own hands, with in particular the midfielders who projected themselves better, a faster and forward-oriented passing game, witness this laser pass from Bakwa for Fransergio and especially that of Maja for the goal of Delaurier-Chauber.

2 The players: Delaurier-Chaubet’s turn

After Bakwa and De Lima in Rodez, Logan Delaurier-Chaubet is the third young Bordeaux player to score his first pro goal on Saturday evening. Clear: a call from the right wing towards the axis, and an instant strike from the left. A few moments later, he could even have scored on the other side on a service from Fransergio but his little dive was countered by Michel.

David Thierry / SOUTH WEST

A little shy in Rodez and like the others in the first period against Niort, the little left-hander broke free in the second period on Saturday. The permutation with Bakwa, from left to right, allowed him to “return” on his left foot and distribute the game from the side (9 passes forward). He also participated in the defensive effort (4 balls won).

Note also the first tenure of Johaneko Louis-Jean at left-back in the absence of injured Jacques Ekomié. Faced with the best Niortais (Boutobba), he sometimes suffered but like the others, he hung on, also bringing the offensive surplus in the second half.

3 The act of play: Elis’ valid goal

The Girondins, like the other teams relegated from L1, have to get used to it: no video-refereeing in L2. And no possibility, Saturday against Niort, to check the goal of Alberth Elis barely entered the game (75th). “When it is played at 1.50 m, we can understand, but there … I do not understand how we can signal offside on this action, complained David Guion. It would have given us a quieter end to the game.”

4 The Stat: 125 Days

Or 4 months and 3 days: this is the interval between Bordeaux’s last two victories at Matmut. The last dated back to April 10, 2022 against Metz (3-1). “It’s important to win at home in front of our home crowd,” Guion whispered. They were officially 20709 on Saturday at the Matmut with places at the single price of 9 euros.
