For match day 22 at the Gabriel Montpied stadium this 23-01-2022 at 09:00 local time in France in the Ligue 1 championship , saw the teams face Clermont against Rennes in a duel of academicians JMG . This match filled with finesse lasted more than 90 minutes before seeing the Clermont team win with the final score of 2-1.
The JMG academician involved in this meeting for the Rennes team is Hamari Traoré who did not play a minute during this clash because he was not in uniform because he was still busy with the CAN. On the Clermont side, we have four JMG academicians, of course I’m talking about Salis Abdul Samed , Alidu Seidu , Blankson Anoff and Fred Gnalega. Seidu and Samed will be the only two to play, the others not being in uniform. The young players were still too busy with the CAN taking place in Cameroon. Seidu will have played until the very end, defender number 36 fought very well and Samed, number 19 and midfielder will have played until the 46th minute before giving way to Yohann Magnin.
Now it’s the statistics’ turn to speak. In terms of possession, it’s more than 47% on the Clermont side and 53% for their opponent. For the shots, we have twelve and only four of them on the Clermont side. And on the side of Rennes, it is also 13 shots including four on target.
The only goal of the game for Rennes was scored by Baptiste Santamaria in the 19th minute, assisted by Benjamin Bourigeaud. For Clermont, it’s a goal in the 60th minute by Lucas Da Cunha and another in the 71st minute by Jordan Dites, assisted by Elba Rashani. A very tight end, a game and a high quality match for this beautiful JMG duel, not so JMG after all. To finish this column, we will have had a total of only five yellow cards and zero red cards fortunately. Note that Clermont is now 15th with 21 points and the Rennes team is fifth with 34 points, despite their defeat.
