Without Vargas against Bordeaux. Facing the Corsicans of Bastia-Borgo, no Nîmes was allowed by Mr. Valnet, the referee of the meeting. This is only the third time this season that this has happened after Saint-Étienne (2e L2 days) and Paris FC (10e L2 days). It will be good for the disciplinary sector because the Crocodiles, who have received 22 yellow and two red cards since the start of the season, have six players suspended in the last six games (Labonne, Vargas, Guessoum, N’Guessan, Fomba and Djiga). For the last match at the Costières stadium, Saturday against Bordeaux, NO will have to do without the services of Tibaut Vagas, who was sent off against Bastia and automatically suspended at Sochaux. Being subject to a suspended match suspension, he was warned in Pau (October 22). This last warning will therefore skip the reprieve and the former Montpellier player will be suspended against the Girondins. Defender Nasser Djiga, who was sent off at Pau, served his suspension match but was suspended for another nine matches. Finally, good news for Moussa Koné who is out of danger of a third warning in ten games.

What time is it in Montauban? The Olympic match of Alès in the Cévennes – Nîmes Olympique logic assigned for 8e round of the Coupe de France, with the possibility that it will be the last match at the Costières stadium, will fascinate Gard football fans. But OAC (N2) was removed at 7e round by Montauban (R2) 2-2 and 6-5 shots on goal. At the same time, Crocodiles (L2) beat Bastia-Borgo (N) 3-0. Therefore, Tarn-et-Garonnais will host the NO. ” It will be a party for the club. We are not crazy and we are happy to finish the Coupe de France on this note. Make no mistake, there are five levels of difference between the two teams and we are not doing well in the league. We will make sure to have fun and give it to our audience. Whatever happens, underlined Chaïb Ouali, the trainer of Montauban. Remaining now to find time for this meeting: “ Our preference is to play Saturday, November 20 at 6 pm explained the Tarn-et-Garonnais technician. It remains to be seen what will be the request of the Nîmes staff knowing that in a trip that takes five hours by bus, it is probably necessary to leave the day before. There is also the possibility of a game on Sunday 20. If the two clubs cannot agree, the match will automatically be scheduled for Saturday at 1:30 pm


Saurat resigned. The elimination in the seventh round of the Coupe de France in Montauban (R2) was fatal to Stéphane Saurat who submitted his resignation on Monday. A resignation accepted by the leaders of the Cévennes who spoke at around 4:30 pm: “Stéphane Saurat has been working for several years to build the senior group. We do not forget and salute the excellent work he has done as well as his participation and investment in the Cap2024 project. Because of this, Christophe Bosne Vialet, assistant coach, will lead the interim, with Arnaud Grosselin, the group’s physical trainer. » Stéphane Saurat arrived in 2018 and he lifted Olympique d’Alès in the Cévennes to N2 last season. OAC, 13th in its National 2 group, will host Saint-Priest on Saturday for the ninth day of the championship.

Nimes Metropolis Gard

Cruel defeat. Nîmes is indeed living through a very difficult time. After a disastrous start to the league (1 point out of 12 possible and 27 goals conceded), they won their first victory of the season 2-0 last week in Le Puy, which did a lot of good for morale, but for also in the chart of accounts. This Sunday, the Gardoises welcome the Montauban team to the Louis-Pautex stadium in Uzès. Nîmes MG thought they had a draw point, before conceding the only goal of the match in the last minute. A really harsh scenario for Nîmes who are fighting to get difficult maintenance in D2 (teams ranked 2e at 6e is maintained). In the standings, Nîmes shares last place with Clermont and Toulouse. Next match for Nîmes, Sunday with a trip to Albi.

Ice Hockey

An autumn for Nîmes. After three victories to start the season, Nîmes Hockey Club traveled to Lyon for the fourth day of the men’s D3. Facing the hen’s favorite, Gardois lost heavily 5-0. Too shy and lacking in offensive inspiration, Krokos were overtaken by Les Lions supported by 2,282 spectators. In the first setback of the season, NHC shares first place in Pool D with nine points. This same Lyonnais that Nîmes will see on Saturday at 8 pm at the municipal ice rink for a rematch and for a revenge that is hard to come by. But the exploit won’t get any better.
