46′. The free kick does nothing and the referee blows his whistle for half-time. Bordeaux got off to a timid start to their Ligue 2 campaign. Offensively, the two teams struggled to create gaps and opportunities. See you in 15 minutes for a second half that we hope will be more spectacular.
44′. Dilane Bakwa fouls Quentin Lecoeuche. Yellow card for the young Bordeaux striker, good free kick to follow for Valenciennes.
37′. Counter-attack 3 against 1 for the Bordelais. Delaurier-Chaubet serves Maja on the left side but the pass is not deep enough and the Valenciennes are doing well. There was better to do for the Girondins on this one …
36′. Things are heating up between Ignatenko and Masson after a duel. Tension escalates. The Ukrainian midfielder is very nervous. Yellow card for both players.
34′. Ignatenko, in a duel with Kaba in the area, collapses and claims a penalty that Mr. Lepaysant rightly does not grant.
31′. The Girondins de Bordeaux begin to lose patience and multiply the loss of ball. Valencienne does not benefit from it … for the moment. The content of the match is currently very poor.
25′. It’s time for a cool break at the Matmut Atlantique.
17′. The pace is down and Valenciennes takes advantage of it by increasing the pressure on the Bordeaux surface. No big opportunity to get in their mouths for the moment in this clash of the Ligue 2 evening.
9′. Dilane Bakwa comes to provoke on the right wing and enters the area but the strike (the cross?) of the young Bordeaux winger lacks power to deceive the vigilance of Larsonneur, new number 1 goalkeeper of Valenciennes.
6′. First situation for Valenciennes! Lecoeuche finds Hamache in depth after a touch, the following back pass is repelled with the tip of the foot by Bokele. First warning for David Guion’s players.
4′. A rather serene start to the match for the Girondins who took possession of the leather. Note that Dilane Bakwa, announced on the left side before the match, evolves on the right flank in these first minutes.
1′. The kick-off is given in a very nice atmosphere at the Matmut Atlantique.
