• FC Nantes lost 1-0 on their lawn against OM, during the sixteenth day of Ligue 1.

  • A match that changed in two minutes with the goal of Gerson, then the expulsion of Pallois.

  • This lack of discipline annoys the coach Antoine Kombouaré.

Faced with OM, FC Nantes could not really express themselves. Led 1-0 at the half-hour mark on a goal from Gerson, the Nantes residents did not make it easy for themselves. Because two minutes later, they found themselves at ten, after the second yellow card received by Nicolas Pallois, in difficulty during this match. “The goal is the first turning point, the second is the expulsion of Nicolas Pallois. After that it gets complicated, ”said Antoine Kombouaré after the match. Manhandled by enterprising Marseillais, the Canaries have nevertheless withstood the many strikes from OM. It is once again Alban Lafont, the Nantes goalkeeper, who prevented this match from turning into a demonstration on the scoreboard.

Despite their courage, Nantes never managed to come back to the score.

“I wanted to congratulate my players because I really enjoyed their second half.

We showed character, courage and also quality.

We had a better period at ten than at eleven, ”launches the Yellow and Green coach.

“With all the efforts we have made, we are frustrated.

The red distorts the match, ”analyzes the young Quentin Merlin, still holder on the left side of the defense, and who has multiplied the races.

A frustrating match, therefore, for Nantes, in front of a busy Beaujoire for this poster (34,000 spectators).

Two games, two reds

The intention was there. But as against Lille with the expulsion of Fabio, the FCN comes out dissatisfied. Difficult to develop his game against a team in numerical superiority. Two consecutive expulsions which have the gift of annoying Antoine Kombouaré, who did not hesitate to express his dissatisfaction: “The thing that annoys me is that it's been two games. And what bothers me even more is that they are experienced players. You need self-control ”.

The message has passed: the people of Nantes must show more discipline.

If Pallois's second yellow card seems severe, it may be his reaction to the referee that caused his red.

However, the 34-year-old defender did not keep his cool, committing a fault in an area out of danger, not far from the center line.

FC Nantes continues its fifth game in a row without a win, and now occupies 13th place in Ligue 1. "I'm not worried more than that", tempers Antoine Kombouaré about this spiral.

Sunday, the match in Lorient is the occasion of a new chapter.

Faced with a tough team and its five consecutive defeats, it would be a shame to spoil everything.
