Once again, the Stéphanois spoiled. Performing an interesting first period after the opener from Reims, Pascal Dupraz’s men delivered a second period without tail or head. Disturbed by Oscar Garcia’s readjustments at the break, the Greens never knew how to respond. Eaten in midfield and in defence, leaving too much space, they conceded another avoidable goal before a goal was denied to Hamouma afterwards. Metz, winner of Angers, has its destiny in hand before going to Paris next Saturday, while the Greens will have to hope in Nantes.
