What a comeback! After a catastrophic start to the match, Sochaux recovered over the course of the match to ultimately win against Paris FC (2-1). It was Maxime Teixeira’s right foot that allowed the Doubistes to disgust the capital’s players on the wire (92nd). This year again, the players of Thierry Laurey will not take another step in their Ligue 1 project, while the FCSM, qualified, will face Auxerre on Friday to pursue their dream of rising to the top flight. A hoped-for return since 2014.

The start of the match was clearly in favor of the Parisians. With a missed penalty in the third minute then another in the twelfth, they still managed to open the scoring, between these two shots on goal, in the eighth minute, thanks to Mahame Siby. But the match was not folded and, despite these three chances, Paris FC remained within gunshot of the Sochaliens. Who were not asked elsewhere.

They quickly regained the upper hand and, just before half-time, joined the score of the teammates of a Moustapha Name excluded from the field for a second yellow card. The second period was largely in favor of Franc-Comtois. If their domination did not pay off despite the many attacks, it was not until the flash of Maxime Teixeira in added time to see the players in yellow and blue take the lead irretrievably and disgust the entire Charléty stadium.
