Too ineffective in attack in the second half, Montpellier had to settle for a 1-1 draw on the Angers lawn this Sunday during the 31st day of Ligue 1. The MHSC made a bad deal in the race for Europe.
Montpellier can always console itself with an 11th match in a row without defeat in all competitions … But the Héraultais probably left Angers where they won the point of the draw (1-1), this Sunday during the 31st Ligue 1 day. If Stéphane Bahoken responded to a goal from Stephy Mavididi, MHSC players may have regrets. Much more enterprising after the break, they created a lot of opportunities without managing to convert them.
With this result, Montpellier, which can hope for a place in the European Cup next season, is doing a bad job. Andy Delort’s partners occupy 7th place in the championship. The SCO, who played for the first time since the announcement of the departure of his coach Stéphane Moulin at the end of the season, remains in the middle of the table (10th).
Ninth goal of the season for Mavididi
If the first period was deeply boring, the second was much more lively. Stephy Mavidi opens the scoring with a header after returning from the locker room for the Hérault team (47th). The Englishman signs in passing his 9th goal of the season in the league. While Andy Delort twice misses the goal of the break, a poor appreciation of the ball from Hilton allows Stéphane Bahoken to deceive Omlin (77th). Raging for Montpellier who multiply the blunders facing the goal of the SCO. If they had won this Sunday, the players of Michel Der Zakaian would have temporarily settled in 6th place in the standings pending the OM match against Dijon this Sunday evening. Olympians they will challenge next Saturday at La Mosson.
