Second period at Geoffroy-Guichard. The Nîmes are held in check (1-1) by Stéphanois who have the ball in their feet but do not know what to do with it. From Imperial Gevigney, Thomasen scorer, interesting Tchokounté, lively and dangerous Vargas, the recruits are in good shape during this meeting.

65′ Hand from Jean N’Guessan, Lobry and Cafaro are around the ball at the entrance to the area. The action gives nothing because the ball is too long but Gabriel Silva was watching the grain.

63′ Exit of Adil Aouchiche, replaced by the young Maxence Rivera. For Nîmes, exit of Moussa Koné, replaced by Yassine Benrahou, Elias Mar Omarsson enters in place of Malik Tchokounté.

59′ Yellow card for the former Barcelonan Sergi Palencia, a little aggressive on Thibault Vargas.

57′ First change of the match, the former Toulousain and Remois Mathieu Cafaro replaces the young Aiki

56′ Corner again conceded by Nîmes, De Gevigney intervenes well in the feet of Aiki. A very dangerous ball but Moussa Koné followed well to go forward.

54′ Adil Aouchiche on the ground, foul by Kelyan Guessoum. The Stéphanois have possession again as in the first period.

50′ Scotty Sadzoute, Yassine Benrahou and Elias Mar Omarsson are warming up on the Nîmes side!

49′ New danger on the side of Vargas, who crosses for Tchokounté. The attacker cannot resume properly after the intervention of Giraudon.

46′ Excellent intervention by Etienne Green on a free kick from Eliasson sent in the package directly from Durand de Gevigney. Benoit Poulain wanted to practice with an acrobatic return but that does not give more.

HALF-TIME! The two teams neutralize each other after a rather sad first period. Few chances, a lot of waste but two goals, one per team.

47′: OH THE STRIKE OF DURAND DE GEVIGNEY! After a Nîmes corner, the defender unleashes a heavy shot from thirty meters. The floating balloon comes to die just above Green’s cages!

45′ Two minutes of additional time!

44′ GOAL FOR SAINT-ÉTIENNE ! Jean-Philippe Krasso converts the penalty in front of Lucas Dias who had chosen a side, it’s 1-1.

43′ I am a black cat, penalty for Saint-Étienne! Benoit Poulain receives a ball in his area, his left arm touches the leather, indisputable.

42′ We have the impression that the Nîmes goal changed the face of the match a little, the spirits are a little more liberated.

40′ New danger by Aouchiche, strikes at the entrance to the surface but it will not work.

37′ Corner for Saint-Etienne by Aouchiche on the left. Mahdi Camara does not fit his head, the Stéphanois are not there for the moment.

35′ As in the previous match, De Gevigney and Vargas are really very interesting, the first for his accuracy and his rough and precise interventions, the second for his activity on his right side!

32′ OPENING OF JENS THOMASEN’S SCORE! Excellent strike from the Dane at the entrance to the surface, crossed at the post. Etienne Green can only touch it with his fingertips! It’s 1-0 for the Crocos!

29′ Vargas intervenes on a new center in the area for Krasso, who is at fault. Watch out for the Aouchiche-Camara duo who are settling in the part of the Nîmes pitch.

27′ Big fright in the defense of Nîmes and another excellent intervention from Durand de Gevigney! Excellent low center from Camara, offset by Aouchiche. The Nîmes defender cuts with great class the ball which arrived at Krasso’s feet!

24′ First cool break of the meeting, meeting very little animated for the moment, let’s hope that drinking will give them a little more inspiration…

22′ Foul by Maël Durand de Gevigney on Krasso, intervention supported by the Stéphanois striker.

21′ Very powerful shot from Thomasen, Mickaël Nadé intervenes, the shot lands as far as Nicolas Usaï!

17′ Foul on Jean N’Guessan, release by Lucas Dias. 73% possession for Saint-Etienne.

15′ As during the meeting against Caen, the Nîmes defend well but have a little trouble creating chances, the ball is much more often in the feet of the Greens.

12′ Adil Aouchiche exercises at 35 meters, Kelyan Guessoum has arisen to hinder him, a corner from Saint-Etienne pushed back with a header.

9′ Offside for the Ivorian Jean-Philippe Krasso after a fine cross from the left executed by Victor Laubry.

7′ Very important statistic given on the air by Romain Collet-Gaudin: Nîmes has never won at Geoffroy-Guichard in its history in Ligue 2

5′ Excellent intervention by Maël Durand de Gevigney in front of Adil Aouchiche, who managed to infiltrate the Nîmes defense. The defender prevents the former Parisian from finding the frame.

4′ Very good recovery from Malik Tchokounté at the entrance to the area, his ball given to his partner Moussa Koné will not give anything since an offside is signaled.

2′ The emblematic captain and player of the Crocos Anthony Briançon is not present for the meeting today, he who has become since this season, captain of the Greens.

1′ KICK-OFF BETWEEN THE TWO TEAMS GIVEN BY THE NÎMOIS! Nîmes and Stéphanois will try to unlock their point counter.

0′ The two teams make their entrance on the lawn!

Check out the pre-match video of the duo of the day: Corentin Corger for Objectif Gard and Romain Collet-Gaudin for France Bleu Gard-Lozère:

Hi there ! Welcome to this live written commentary of the meeting of the second day of Ligue 2 between Saint-Étienne and Nîmes Olympique, always in the company of yours truly Sacha Virga.

A quick reminder of the results of the previous day for the teams who face each other in just under half an hour: Saint-Étienne opened hostilities and were beaten in Dijon last Saturday (2-1) , Nîmes Olympique also lost their home game against Caen in the very last minutes of the match (0-1). Note that the Greens are last and received three points of suspension after the incidents against Auxerre in the play-off a few weeks ago.

The compositions of the two teams twenty minutes from kick-off:

On the Nîmes side, not many changes except the tenure of the midfielder loaned by Nice Jean N’Guessan, in place of a disappointing Benrahou against the Normans last week. For the Stéphanois, the young Aiki, scorer in the defeat last week, knows his first tenure of the season, certainly the fruit of his entry against Dijon.

Two major players from Saint-Étienne, holders last week, have left the club in recent days. First of all the former Bordeaux Zaydou Youssouf, who left for the Portuguese Liga in Famalicao for a million euros, Denis Bouanga, expelled against the Dijonnais, was then expatriated to MLS on the side of Los Angeles FC. Playing with Giorgio Chiellini, Gareth Bale and Carlos Vela, there really is worse in life…

Corentin Corger and Romain Collet-Gaudin will make you live the meeting

I just finished my Burger King, so good. I put the ice cream in the fridge for halftime. Yes gentlemen, ladies, the pleasure is present during this pre-game. Hoping that I also take some during the meeting and that we can see more goals than broken seats if it pulls in the stands. Big dedication to Coralie Salle who is also working on this match but in a Parisian media!
