In a match delayed by an hour due to nets punctured by smoke, AS Saint-Etienne snatched the draw against Angers (2-2), at the opening of the 11th day of Ligue 1. The Greens still sound without victory, but they do not let go, despite a tense context.
And suddenly, at 11:53 p.m., the Cauldron exploded. A kid wearing the No. 33, in the jersey not even flocked, offered the Greens a point that allows them to avoid the worst. So is the defender Mickaël Nadé who came to place his head to snatch the match against Angers (2-2), and conclude this funny evening.

The Greens therefore pushed, and they were rewarded for their efforts with this goal from Nadé (2-2, 90th + 3).
“We have come a long way, once again, reacted Captain Mahdi Camara on Prime Video. We tried not to give up, we wanted to make a result at home, we snatch the draw. We cannot be satisfied, because we need points, but we show that we still want. “ Still without a victory, and still a red lantern, ASSE is moving forward in slow motion, despite obvious efforts.
