National 2. Vannes – Caen: 1-4
The lack of competition since the reception of PSG undoubtedly explains the too soft first half hour, marked by the efficiency of the very young Caen team. After a well-constructed action, Fortunato’s full-line shot hit the crossbar and bounced behind the line (0-1, 11′). Then Legendre breaks with a fine free-kick also fired at full ax (0-2, 23′). It is only from this moment that we witness the awakening of the Vannetais. A period strewn with situations that did not materialize, but all the same punctuated by a goal from the head of Persico on a cross from Henry (1-2, 34 ‘).
Breton good intentions persisted in the second half and attempts followed (48′, 49′, 62′, 66′, 67′, 72′). But for not having been able to realize all his chances, Vannes was punished by Fortunato who beat Pétrel in two stages (1-3, 73′) then by Boudonnet with a harmless but deflected shot (1-4, 77′). “A lesson in realism, for Pierre Talmont. On the match, there are not three but a gap. We should have equalized but we lacked efficiency. Then we didn’t defend well and lacked aggression. We have two games left this week which I take as bonus games.
