Nantes vs Lens [Ligue 1 Recap, August 9th]


The bet we placed with Unibet on Nantes to lead at half-time didn’t pay off, as Nantes did win against Lens, but the only goal of the match was scored on the 65th minute. In the first half both teams looked for the goal, but the chances coming their way weren’t enough for an opening. On the second minute Coulibaly missed a shot what could have decided the outcome and Lens were left waiting out on Nantes to commit a mistake.

This particular match might have ended up being one of the most uneventful in the first round of Ligue 1 up until Nantes made a game changing substitution. Bammou came on the 64th minute for Aristiguieta who counted for little until then and mere seconds after he scored the only goal of the match, granted his team a clean sheet win and became the hero of an entire city; a thing which months ago he probably would have only dreamed off. It all started with an assist by Audel, and then Bammou’s powerful right foot shot from inside the box landed into Rious’ net in the right corner.

Lens had nothing of that warrior spirit everyone expected from them, and their internal problems seem to have put an unwanted stamp on them, but the players should still be given props for showing up a day after finding out they are allowed to play in Ligue 1. Nantes could have increased their advantage closer to the end of the match, but Serge Gakpe’s shot to the right side of the Lens’ box flew wide of the place where it was supposed to end.

Result: -7 units, bet lost
