In the fight with FC Martigues for the rise in Regional 1, AC Arles inflicted an astonishing 22-1 on FC Septèmes on Sunday.

The peaceful atmosphere of the Fernand-Fournier stadium in Arles. It is on this same ground that the players of Arles won the victory 22 goals to 1 against their counterparts of Septemes, Sunday May 8th. The result, very broad, arouse suspicion, as this All Sport topic explains.

In the fight for the rise in Regional 1, Arles is neck and neck with Martigues. Only goal difference (+3 for FC Martigues 2) separates the two clubs. The river score on the penultimate day of the championship is therefore puzzling. Especially since the club have only scored 52 goals in 20 matches this season.

The president of AC Arles highlights the state of the opposing team: “I believe they came with the reserve team. Their goalkeeper, we had to lend him gloves. I don’t even know if we should congratulate ourselves on such a victory”.

The Marseillais club of Septemes also rejects any arrangement. In Martigues, however, we see red. If this score is confirmed, their chances of progressing to Regional 1 next season are dwindling since only the winner is promoted.
