beaten by Troyes, Strasbourg starts the year 2023 in the worst way

0 20

For Julien Stéphan’s players, 2023 will start as 2022 ended: with a heartbreaking defeat. Beaten on Wednesday by Kylian Mbappé’s Paris Saint-Germain (2-1), author of the last-minute victory penalty, the Strasbourg players conceded two unlucky goals this time, then came back to score (2-2), before gave one last time.

The Trojan Renaud Ripart had risen in the area, after a first delayed hit, to open the scoring (16th), then Rony Lopes doubled the stakes (20th) after a first unsuccessful clearance from Alexander Djiku.

Strasbourg responded with Habib Diallo, by heart (40th) after a misunderstanding in the Trojan rear, and by Ismaël Doukouré, with a sublime shot, hovering before hitting the bar and then getting stuck in the skylight (54th).

Strasbourg remains second to last

With a no less magnificent half-volley after a corner kick (78th), Xavier Chavalerin scored the winning goal for Troyes, which the Alsatians, playing dominantly and jealously, failed to register. This eighth defeat of the season (for a single win) won Strasbourg in penultimate place, four points behind Ajaccio, the first non-relegation.

At the end of the match, a conversation took place between players and supporters, frustrated to see their team in poor form after a successful 2021–22 season (6th place). After this game, Troyes climbs to thirteenth place, five points ahead of Brest, the first to be relegated.

Scheduled during the holiday period, the 17th day of Ligue 1 continues with Lille-Reims (5 p.m.), then Montpellier-Marseille (7 p.m.) and finally Rennes-Nice (9 p.m.).
