National: Versailles loses its leading position, the Red Star passes it

A win, a loss and a draw. The 19th day of National was mixed for the three Ile-de-France representatives of National. Here’s what to remember.

The right operation: the second Red Star

After their defeat at Villefranche, the Red Star, who found their fans in Bauer (match behind closed doors), resumed their march forward against Sedan (2-1) thanks to two goals in three minutes signed Jovany Ikanga (33rd) and Sheikh Ndoye (36th). In the standings, the operation is good since Habib Beye’s team takes advantage of the defeat of Versailles (3-1) at Bourg-en-Bresse to pass them and take 2nd place one point behind the new leader, Martigues.

Player: Jovany Ikanga (Red Star)

Match after match, 20-year-old Jovany Ikanga is asserting himself in the Red Star attack where the two offensive rookies Alioune Fall (1 goal) and Achille Anani (0 goal) have been disappointing since the start of the season. A child of Red Star, where he arrived at the age of 6, Ikanga (3 goals, 16 games) opened the scoring against Sedan and scored his 4th goal of the season in 18 games (13th start).

The number: 3

The number of goals conceded by Versailles at Bourg-en-Bresse (3-1). Either one more than all of the previous six games (two) since Cris’ arrival on the bench. The Brazilian also concedes his first defeat on the Versailles bench after 4 wins and 2 draws.

Note, however, the magnificent free kick achieved by Jeremain Lens, his third goal with Versailles.

The sentence: “We left on a positive series”, Vincent Bordot (Paris 13 Atletico)

After three defeats in a row, Paris 13 Atletico where two rookies were starting starters (Far, Tégar) showed the best against Villefranche despite the draw (1-1).

“We put more energy than the last two games. Offensively, we used the ball better, we managed to create actions. We could have scored on our highlights. We could have led 2-1 but against these teams, we are never safe. We see it at the end where we can concede a goal. We left on a positive series, it’s already not bad. Now we have to go and win at Sedan,” says Vincent Bordot. Paris 13 remains penultimate.
