Clermont Nantes 2-3, goals and highlights from Ligue 1

Lots of entertainment and emotions that lasted until the end of a match full of goals. This is what the challenge that faced Nantes and Clermont bequeathed to us. Both teams have chosen, to the delight of those who have followed the entire match, to put in the attic any speech related to defensive attention. In the end, Kolo Muani’s goal resolved the game in favor of Nantes but we can’t help but applaud Clermont too, who tried for a long time, only to yield 3-2. Both hosts and guests have always tried to win it. There are many scoring actions built and, in more than one case, capitalized. However, the equilibrium was definitively broken in the 67th minute with Randal Kolo Muani’s goal which gave the victory to Nantes.

Nantes managed to take the lead with Ludovic Blas in the 43rd minute, but Clermont responded by drawing the match in the 58th with Saîf-Eddine Khaoui. Nantes managed to take the lead again in the 62nd thanks to a goal from Pedro Chirivella, in the 63rd Salis Abdul Samed returned the result in a draw, but it was not enough to avoid defeat.

Despite the result, the match was in balance. Clermont had more ball possession (55%), while Nantes prevailed in terms of total shots (9-12) and had more corners (6-5).

The hosts have successfully completed more passes than the opponent (384-294): Yohann Magnin (58) and Abdul Samed (51) stood out. For the guests, Andrei Girotto was the most accurate player with 48 completed passes.

Kalifa Coulibaly despite not scoring was the player who shot the most for Nantes: 3 times, 1 of which on target. For Clermont it was Yohann Magnin who tried to resolve the offensive actions personally and tried the conclusion twice.
In Nantes, forward Kalifa Coulibaly was the best of his opponents in tackling won (12 out of 19 total) and contributed to his team’s dominance in the overall percentage (100%). Defender Akim Zedadka was the most effective in the ranks of Clermont with 9 tackles won (15 played in total).

The victory of Nantes brings three precious points in dowry, making Kombouaré’s team climb to 45 points in the standings. The setback of Clermont leaves F. Ogier and his companions instead to 28 points

At the level of individual statistics, on the other hand, Chirivella, who finished in the match scorers ‘table, climbs in the scorers’ ranking to 2 goals. Blas is also on the net, increasing his season’s tally of goals, settling at 8 centers in the competition.
