Le Havre consolidates its leading position after its victory over Bordeaux


After the meeting at the bottom of the table between Annecy and Saint-Etienne, which saw the Savoyards win against Stéphanois (2-1), a duel at the top awaited the observers of Ligue 2 during this 16th day. Le Havre, solid leader, received Bordeaux, the dolphin of Le Havre. This match gave rise to a great battle, won by the locals when they finished the match at 10 following the exclusion of Quentin Cornette for a second yellow card received in the second period (67th). But before that, Amir Richardson had opened the scoring for Le Havre at the very start of the game (9th, 1-0) after a cross from Christopher Operi.

Ten minutes later, Bordeaux and Aliou Badji thought of equalizing but the striker’s goal was logically disallowed for an offside position (19th). Returning from the locker room, while Le Havre could have obtained a deserved penalty (48th), Quentin Cornette was on the verge of doubling the bet but his shot passed next to the opposing cages (55th) then Gaëtan Poussin made a good save to stop his strike (58th). After his exclusion, the Le Havre began to retreat dangerously but did not break. At the very end of the match, Dilane Bakwa, surely too altruistic, relied on Aliou Badji who missed his head to head against Arthur Desmas, very embarrassed by the sharp return of Arouna Sangante (81st). Thanks to this victory, Le Havre consolidates its leading position while Bordeaux can see Sochaux and Grenoble pass it in case of victory.
