Forward Guingamp. No victory in Annecy, but a series that continues – En Avant Guingamp
The series continues. After two consecutive successes at Paris FC and against Dijon, En Avant Guingamp extended their invincibility on the Annecy lawn on Saturday (1-1). But it was very difficult against the direct play of an opponent full of sap and on a lawn in very poor condition.
In line with their second period at Roudourou, last week, the Bretons struggled to hold the ball and get out of the opposing pressure. Dominated, they gave in on a blunder from Gomis who offered the opener to Sahi (1-0, 21′) before Livolant, well served in depth, saw his cross pushed back into his own goal by Lajugie ( 1-1, 23′).
A goal that summed up rather poorly a first act to the advantage of Laurent Guyot’s players, punished for their only small mistake of carelessness then unfortunate when Mbe Soh pushed the ball back on his own post (42 ‘).
In numerical superiority
“We expected it to be difficult, explained Stéphane Dumont. Annecy is one of the rare teams to be able to press all the time. It would have been necessary to have more frank defensive gestures. But our second half is pretty good.” It was better when they got back from the locker room, in fact, even if the Costarmoricans still lacked a bit of control to take the game completely on their own.
They still proceeded on the counter, often, before the expulsion of Lajugie, which prevented Livolant from spinning in goal, did not allow them to put more foot on the ball. Like El Ouazzani who did not press his recovery enough (87 ‘), they did not miss much to snatch a third success in as many games.
