For the Angers SCO, it's a Saturday evening in the position of the leader of the championship. And for Dijon, it is already an opportunity to see the problems that could arise this season. Angers won this Saturday against Dijon (0-1) for the first day of Ligue 1 thanks to a goal from Ismaël Traoré.

The Ivorian gave his team the advantage in the 22nd minute by taking a shot from Sada Thioub with the flat right foot, thus becoming the first scorer of the L1 season, as Bordeaux and Nantes drew 0-0. Friday night.

In the hard from the first minute

Deprived of many players by injury including his captain Julio Tavares, who asked to leave for Saudi Arabia, Dijon, beaten for the first time at home since August 24, 2019 and a series of twelve games (6 wins, 6 draws) , had a particularly difficult first half hour. The Dijonnais were quickly in difficulty with in particular Bruno Ecuele Manga who almost scored against his camp after thirty seconds before Alfred Gomis intervened on a shot from Wilfried Kanga (12).

In the second half, the SCO, also handicapped by several absences, could have worsened the mark on situations of Angelo Fulgini (61) and Farid El Melali (80, 82) as well as Baptiste Santamaria, whose recovery of the head missed the bit frame (90). Dijon, despite disorderly efforts, however had rare opportunities to equalize by Jordan Marié, whose shot hit the post (36), while two goals were refused to Aurélien Scheidler for justified offside positions ( 6, 49).

Last season, the Angevins started with three wins in their first four games, while the DFCO had lost four times from the start. The trend is therefore the same after this meeting.
