The match: 3-1

Even if he had left some regrets since the HAC had led 3-1, the precious point brought back from Paris (3-3, last Saturday) was indeed foundational. Because after a series of six unsuccessful matches in Ligue 1 (four losses, two draws), the Normandy team, 14th, defeated Strasbourg at home (3-1) and thus took an important step towards maintaining, by putting the pressure on the 16th, Metz, which receives Rennes (Saturday, 7 p.m.) and on the 15th, Nantes, which travels to Brest (9 p.m.).

Luka Elsner’s men deserved this success, even if they shook a little at 2-0, following Yassine Kechta’s superb double header (read below), conceding a goal from Frédéric Guilbert’s header from a corner from Dilane Bawka (85th). For the rest, they indeed showed great overall mastery and were definitively released at the end of added time thanks to the 5th goal this season in L1 from André Ayew, always very skillful with his left foot (90th + 6 ).

The player: Kechta, a double worth gold

The young Franco-Moroccan midfielder (22 years old), trained at the club, waited for his 31st match in Ligue 1 to finally unlock his score. But the first two goals among the elite from Yassine Kechta (23rd, 65th), superb and headed (including a diving one), while he only measures 1.74 m, are really worth gold in the race to maintain. Otherwise sober and diligent in his use of the ball, he received a vibrant and unforgettable ovation from the public at the Océane stadium, when he was replaced by Oualid El-Hajjam (80th).
