And Avant Guingamp is going through a turbulent week after the resignation of Antoine Kombouaré and will have the chance to prove to Olympique Lyonnais on Saturday that the team is in the Ligue 1 home. Can Enant surprise Guingamp or be the eighth defeat of the season?
It was already two months to come, but this week it finally became official: Antoine Kombouaré, who this season was working on his third season at En Avant Guingamp, has been fired. The seasoned Frenchman managed to win only one league match with En Avant this season and as a result his team was the last team in Ligue 1 with seven points. Last week, Nantes lost no less than 5-0. For forty minutes, En Avant Guingamp managed to keep pace with Nantes, but after the opening goal of Emiliano Sala in the final phase of the first half, En Avant suffered in the second half and the rear locks opened wide and four more goals.
Antoine Kombouaré started this season with no less than six consecutive defeats with En Avant but by four draws and a victory in the five games afterwards, the Frenchman seemed to have turned the tide with his team. Kombouaré, who after the monster layer at Nantes, still felt combative for Saturday’s meeting with Olympique Lyonnais did not succeed this season in getting his team, which was lacking a goal getter, to get a talk on all fronts. No team scored fewer goals than En Avant and neither team scored more goals than. For the new trainer of Guingamp, who has not yet been announced at the time of writing this preamble, it is a tough job.
Both at home in the league against Girondins de Bordeaux and in the Champions League against TSG Hoffenheim, Olympique Lyonnais played in the past week. In the league, the team of Bruno Génésio with Memphis Depay and Nabil Fekir was in the forefront powerless against Girondins de Bordeaux until Hassem Aouar scored against the proportions in separating the market. In the second half, the game continued where it left off: Olympique Lyonnais continued to defend with power, but in the end Girondins de Bordeaux scored the deserved equalizer. In the Champions League, a strong Olympique Lyonnais played in its own home 2-0 against TSG Hoffenheim before the visitors got a red card and managed to come back to 2-2.
It therefore seems that there is currently a large concentration and / or deployment problem among the players of Génésio. Against Girondins de Bordeaux the equalizer was right, but in the Champions League the victory was far too easy and unnecessary handed over. Yet there is also good news for Génésio because captain Nabil Fekir has returned to OL and he was immediately back with an assist in the league and a goal in the Champions League. The French world champion already reached eighteen league goals last season and seems immediately in shape after his injury.
