The 16th round in the French league continued tonight (Thursday) when Marseille hosted Toulouse at home and inflicted their fourth loss in a row, with a wonderful display in front of the home crowd in the Voldrum, on the way to a huge 1:6. Even before that, Montpellier beat Lorraine 0:2 away. In addition, Reims managed to surprise Ran from the third place and beat her at home 1:3, when Nice from the ninth place saved a 0:0 in a home game against the second Lance.
Marseille – Toulouse 1:6
The team from the south of France, which went into the break after two consecutive victories, wanted to continue its positive momentum towards the rest of the regular season. The game ended in a one-sided situation, with Ronnier (13), Nicolaisen (own, 41), Kolshinac (51), Payet (62), Onder (penalty, 79) and Nuno Tavares (83) scoring in her favor, with Klaus excelling with a pair of assists. Van den Boman (penalty, 66) managed to shrink, but it did not help the newcomer to threaten Marseille, who rose to third place at the expense of Ran with 33 points.
Lorraine – Montpellier 2:0
Reggie Le Brice’s team started the season in a very surprising way when they managed to reach the second place, but little by little they seem to be returning to their natural place, having already gone six games without a win. In the 3rd minute, Taji Savagna scored a quick goal, and in the 22nd minute, Eli Vai doubled the advantage and determined the final result. Montpellier escapes from the bottom and is in the middle of the table with 17 points, 4 points away from the red line. Lorraine, on the other hand, with 28 points, moves away from the place that leads to Europe at the end of the season.
Reims – Ran 1:3
In the second game of the day, Rann, who reached third place before the World Cup break, went to an away game where they met Reims from the center of the table. The hosts finished the game with a valuable victory that helps them to move further away from the bottom, when Florian Bellogun scored the first after 6 minutes, Alexis Phillips doubled in the 22nd minute and Arthur Thieta Zimek just before halftime (45+1). Although Ran controlled the tempo of the game for most of the time, she was unable to influence the result once again, with Florian Bellogun scoring his second in the 85th minute to win the game for the home team.
Nice – Lance 0:0
