Rennes can thank Bourigeaud
Rennes is clearly one of the big winners of this last day of Ligue 1. Fifth in the standings before kick-off, the Breton club won a place, winning on the lawn of neighboring Brest (1-2) . A success acquired thanks to a double from Benjamin Bourigeaud. First a scorer with a free kick well rolled up close to the post, the Rennes captain then restored the advantage to his team, by transforming a penalty with composure just before the break. Overall irregular this season, the 29-year-old was imperial during the final sprint. Like his team, qualified for the next Europa League.
Wahi termine fort
Except surprise, Elye Wahi will leave Montpellier this summer. The 20-year-old striker made a success of his exit with the MHSC, scoring twice in Reims (1-3). First scorer with the head, he then ensured the victory of his team in a game without stake, by quietly winning his duel with Diouf. In clear progress this season, he ends this 2022/23 financial year with nineteen goals on the clock. A balance sheet and promises that arouse many desires.
Healey, the beautiful story
Winner of the Coupe de France, Toulouse ended the season in freewheel. The Occitan club nevertheless offered to finish a beautiful prestigious victory on the lawn of Monaco (1-2). A success obtained at the very end of the match, thanks to a goal from the ghost Rhys Healey. The English striker, who suffered a serious knee injury last August, had to wait a long time to find the pitch, but he struck as soon as he returned to competition, deceiving Nubel with a cross shot after added time . The 28-year-old player, author of a celebration full of rage, celebrated the event with all his teammates who came to rush on him.
Radu leads Auxerre, relegated to L2
Only one year after its rise, Auxerre is back in Ligue 2. AJA had its destiny in hand in its distance duel with Nantes, but the Burgundian club was no match for Lens (1-3). Quickly led, the Auxerrois definitely cracked in the second half, conceding two consecutive goals with two big handball errors from Ionut Radu. The Romanian goalkeeper, yet author of a convincing loan since this winter, failed at the worst time for AJA. A final match also marked by a huge blunder from Leca on the reduction of the gap signed Niang.
Boateng, a last ordeal
He will not leave an imperishable memory to Lyon supporters. At the end of his contract, Jérôme Boateng played his last match with Les Gones this Saturday. And the German defender still delivered a catastrophic performance. Author from the outset of a rather rude CSC after a disagreement with Lopes (5th), and completely overwhelmed on the other two Nice goals. Laurent Blanc ended his ordeal by replacing him at the break with Thiago Mendes.
A undermined Paris
«The most important was the tribute to Sergio (Rico), explained Kylian Mbappé to Canal+ after the meeting. There are more important things than football. We were already champions. We could have lost 22-0, it wouldn’t have changed anything for us.“Facing Clermont, Paris was not in the mood for the party. Neither during the match, nor to celebrate this eleventh title of champion of France. PSG however led 2-0 after 20 minutes of play thanks to goals from Sergio Ramos (16th), for his last match in the capital, and Kylian Mbappé (21st), his 29th of the season. But the Parisians gradually crumbled and Clermont logically won (3-2). After the match, the festivities to celebrate the title took place but the smiles were shy. Christophe Galtier and Leo Messi widely booed by the Parisian public. Only Kylian Mbappé was acclaimed. A final evening as a symbol of a 2022-2023 vintage to be erased.
Nothing is going well in Marseille
Olympique de Marseille finished third andhave luckto be on the podium according to Jonathan Clauss, who spoke at the microphone of Canal+. A catastrophic end to the season like this last match, which was played for a long time off the pitch with violent clashes between Ajacciens and Marseillais, the day before the match. It was finally Ajaccio, already relegated to Ligue 2, who won 1-0 against OM, who conceded their third defeat in a row. After the match, Igor Tudor, who will leave the club in the next few hours, did not appear before the press. Marseille will have to react.
