THE FACT OF THE MATCH
Caen made the good operation of the evening. With the defeat of Monaco to Nimes, the Normans seized a beautiful opportunity to do their behind the Monegasque. Always barragiste, the SMC, however, is on equal points with the club monaco and could finish outside of the red zone !
1-0 (14th) : Opening of the score for the MSC ! Alerted on the corridor left, Imorou strong center in the direction of the second pole in the direction of Casimir Ninga. The Chad talking about his relaxation, and jumps to the top of Yunis Abdelhamid to boxer the ball head in the cages of Edouard Mendy !
1-1 (37th) : On a corner poorly cleared by the defence caennaise, Moussa Doumbia, only 25 meters, tries his luck with his left foot. The leather is then deflected by a foot caennais but finishes at the bottom of the nets, Brice Samba.
2-1 (40th) : What a blow-franc of Fayçal Fajr ! Malik Tchokounté gets a good free-kick, full-axis, the result of a mistake by Remi Oudin. The moroccan International is in charge of kicking the kick is stopped by wrapping his sublime right leg. Edouard Mendy relaxes, touches the ball but not enough to put him out of the cage. The result is that the leather struck the post before going back !
3-1 (45th) : Found by the young Herman Moussaki on the right side, Frederic Guilbert takes his time and adjusts good a center of the left foot. This ball rolled up and it is so well negotiated that it will complete the back of the net without anyone deviates its trajectory. Edouard Mendy is beaten.
3-2 (81st) : Reims reduces the brand. Zahary, entered in the course of the game, commits a foul in the penalty area on Moussa Doumbia. A penalty logic that Zeneli transforms without trembling.
The MAN OF the MATCH
Faycal Fajr (SMC) : the master at play caennais has still shone in his chosen field : the kicking stopped. Author of a splendid free-kick to give the advantage to his followers, the Moroccan has made a strong game in the midfield (8 duels, 81% of successful passes).
The SMC is a superb operation in the struggle to maintain. As previously explained, the Normans come back to equal points with Monaco, first non-relegation, and remain 2 points ahead of Dijon.
Side reims, the end of the season is rather complicated. If they have obtained quickly in their maintenance, the men of David Guion fish these past weeks and have not been able to overthrow the SMC. The Stade de Reims falls asleep at the 9th position.
