A new big disappointment in a season which had already not lacked it. The post-World Cup recovery had given the illusion that this Paris FC team could finally play an interesting role during the second part of the season. But after the defeat in Annecy (2-0), the Parisians completely went through at Quevilly RM (3-1) where 150 of their supporters had made the short trip.
Since the two teams clash in L2, QRM had until then always lost (5 defeats in 5 games) against Paris FC. But Olivier Echouafni’s team took care of this first victory by being attractive and shaking up a PFC that was completely upside down in the first period. The choices of Thierry Laurey with a defense of five, a midfielder without a creator and only two attacking players at kick-off, did not really pay off. If there was (a slight) better in the 2nd period thanks to certain comebacks, it was necessary to wait for the hour of play for the PFC to finally make a strike worthy of the name (Guilavogui, 60th)…
“There was a team that was very effective and the other not, sighs Thierry Laurey. QRM countered us on a loose ball and afterwards, it goes very very quickly… From the moment you are trailing against this team, it becomes complicated. They have individualities capable of making the difference. The penalty conceded when we come back to 2-1 in the match, it is not possible… We returned too many balls to the opponent when we were not necessarily in a great hurry in the heart of the game. facilitated the task of QRM which benefited from our largesse. We can’t take the goals we concede… It’s unfortunate to see that what we worked on during the week has not been applied. »
Nine points behind 2nd Bordeaux
Beyond the accounting aspect – 11th at 9 points now from 2nd Bordeaux – it is the performance and the level displayed by certain players that raise questions. Paris FC had saved its first part of the season thanks to its career away from home. If even on the move, he can’t do it anymore, the next few weeks are going to be very long and boring.
In this gloom, there remains the prospect of an adventure in the Coupe de France to brighten up a climate that risks becoming heavy. But before the round of 16 against Annecy (Wednesday, February 8), this team will already have to show another face in the two matches next week against Pau (Tuesday in Charléty) and at the leader Le Havrais (Friday). There are also three days left before the end of the transfer window for the leaders to try to improve this group even if they will very quickly recover from the injuries of very long dates (Kanté, Hamel, Boutaïb). “It’s a good lesson, we’ll have to draw the right conclusions from it… We have to react as quickly as possible. We have 3 days to put our heads back together for Pau”, concludes Laurey.
