No team won at home during the first day of Ligue 1 this weekend. A rarity.
Last season, the increase in the number of away wins was blamed on behind closed doors matches, which deprived home teams of the support of their supporters.
This weekend, for the public’s return to the stadiums, Ligue 1 offered a funny spectacle: 6 draws, 4 away victories… and therefore no success at home. This had only happened twice in the history of the championship according to Opta, during the 38th day of the 1966/67 season, and the 9th of the 2004/05 financial year.
This statistic is due to the goal of Burak Yilmaz at the end of added time (90th + 6), which prevented Metz from winning against Lille (3-3). It is also partly due to the disappointing start of the season for Monaco and Lyon, hung in their stadium by Nantes (1-1) and Brest (1-1).
3 – For the third time in Ligue 1 history, no team has won at home on the same day. This also happened on Matchday 38 of the 1966/67 season, and on Matchday 9 of 2004/05. Travel. pic.twitter.com/E4SO6HcuXU
