In the 81st minute, the Paillade captain scored his second goal with a superb cushioned finish from the edge of the box, ending Dall’Oglio’s team’s terrible 11-match losing streak in Ligue 1 since defeating the now-relegated Bordeaux back in March.
After their difficult test against PSG, La Paillade will play matches against Auxerre, Brest, and Ajaccio. PSG is looking to hand Dall’Oglio’s team their sixth straight away defeat after allowing at least two goals in each of their previous five league matches on the road.
PSG defeated Montpellier 2-0 last season at Parc des Princes before defeating Montpellier 4-0 in May at the Stade de la Mosson, marking the champions’ sixth straight victory in this matchup across all competitions.
Auxerre’s away match against the 2020–21 Ligue 1 champions Lille was the epitome of a baptism of fire for them, and they fell to the Paulo Fonseca–led Dogues 4–1 at the Stade Pierre–Mauroy.
Auxerre was put to the sword by Benjamin Andre’s thunderbolt, two shots from Jonathan David, and a strong strike from Akim Zedadka before Gaetan Charbonnier netted the game-winning goal by expertly controlling a long pass from Quentin Bernard and lifting the ball over Leo Jardim.
After losing to Angers, Jean-Marc Furlan’s team faced a challenging five-match stretch against Montpellier HSC, Strasbourg, Lyon, Marseille, and Rennes. Charbonnier’s effort was merely a consolation for the team.

Except for the injured Pellenard, Furlan should be able to work with a fully fit squad. It’s interesting to note, however, that the AJA coach only made two substitutions during the full 90 minutes against Lille.
Denys Bain, a former defender for Brest, will hope to get the chance to show off this week in the backline, either alongside Julian Jeanvier or Jubal, another former Brentford player. For the match against the champions, Montpellier will have suspended midfielder Jordan Ferri back, but neither Savanier nor Joris Chotard is expected to give up their positions in the middle.
On the opening weekend, Dall’Oglio had the agonizing sight of crucial attacker Stephy Mavididi leaving the game after only 30 minutes due to a thigh injury that might keep him out for a few weeks.
- A.J. Auxerre
Theo Pellenard, a defender for Auxerre, was injured in the preseason and underwent successful surgery to repair it. He will now need to recover for several months, the team said earlier this week.
On the plus side, Arnaud Nordin has fully recovered from groin discomfort and is prepared to fill in for the Englishman on the left side. Sacha Delaye, however, is unquestionably out, and center-back Pedro Mendes is questionable due to a muscular issue.
