Bordeaux hooked and unconvincing against Valenciennes (0-0), Guingamp first leader ahead of Metz

It was not the day of the historic relegated. Saint-Etienne had opened the ball in a very sad way, losing 2-1 in the afternoon in Dijon. In front of his public, Bordeaux did not show a much more interesting face. Reintegrated in extremis in L2 on Wednesday after weeks of administrative battles, the Girondins could not do better than 0-0 against Valenciennes.

Without its recruits Yoann Barbet and Vital Nsimba, not qualified for this match, without certain players considered undesirable, with Hwang Ui-jo on the bench, it is a rejuvenated and experimental Bordeaux which presented itself in front of 22,000 supporters at Matmut Atlantique . David Guion thus established Junior Mwanga (19 years old), Logan Delaurier-Chaubet (20 years old), trained at the club and Jacques Ekomié (18 years old), who usually evolve in National 3 with the reserve. Midfielder Tom Lacoux, 20, inherited the captain’s armband.

But Josh Maja, aligned at the forefront, never found the fault. The Girondins, who still have to pass the National Management Control Department (DNCG) on Tuesday, hope more than ever to be able to strengthen themselves during the transfer window.

Guingamp and Metz already on the attack

The third relegated, Metz, has fully succeeded in his debut by beating at Saint-Symphorien Amiens (3-0), trained by the former player and technician of the Grenats, Philippe Hinschberger. Accustomed to doing the lift, the Messina team knows that this season the places for the climb will be even more expensive. With four L1 runs to increase the elite from 20 to 18 clubs, only two L2 teams will be promoted (no play-offs).

The fight to avoid one of the four descents in National will also be tough. Promoted to L2, Laval hopes to stay there. The Tangos have already made a success of their entry into the competition by winning in Bastia 2-0 thanks to a double from Zakaria Naidji. Another promoted, Annecy had a less happy baptism by losing at home to Niort (2-1).

Author of a very good end to the season, Guingamp left on the same dynamic by outclassing Pau at the Roudourou stadium (4-0), with two goals from Jules Gaudin. Thanks to this river score, the Bretons temporarily take the lead in front of Metz.

In the other matches of this first day, Le Havre, version Luka Elsner (coach) – Mathieu Bodmer (sporting director), could not do better than 0-0 at home against Grenoble. Score zero and blank also between Quevilly-Rouen and Rodez. Also locked for a long time, the match in Nîmes and Caen was won by the wire by the Normans (1-0).
