Reduced to ten in the first half, Dijon FCO managed to achieve a victory against losC thanks to Julio Tavares, and air is given at the bottom of the table.
Dijon FCO 1-0 LOSC
Undefeated in Gaston-Gérard from 24 August and seven matches before that day, Dijon FCO faced a new challenge by hosting LOSC. And from the start of the game, Stéphane Jobard’s team reminded visitors how formidable it was at home. A half-volley from the left Mounir Chouiar forced Mike Maignan to make a magnificent parade. Well into the match, DFCO continued to approach the opposite cage through Mama Baldé and Stephy Mavididi. At the time, Julio Tavares’ teammates seemed well on their way to another coup, as did their successes against Stade Rennais (2-1) and Paris Saint-Germain (2-1). Yes, but the task was going to be complicated as Hamza Mendyl was shown a red card for a kick in Luiz Araujo’s ribs (21E). And inevitably, the game became more complicated for the Dijonnais. Xeka (37E), Ikoné (40E) and Osimhen (45E2) Then took turns securing opportunities, but Alfred Gomis managed to keep his team afloat.
Julio Tavares as savior
Everything remained playable in the second half between the two teams. And as soon as Julio Tavares returned from the locker room, he opened the score for the locals. In a long touch of Ahmad Ngouyamsa, who entered the game in place of Mavididi, Baldé strayed from the chest to Tavares who deceived Maignan in force (1-0, 47E). To make matters worse in the ranks of visitors, unable to return to the score in numerical superiority, Boubakary Soumaré was ejected, after a second yellow card (67E). At the end of the match, Jonathan Bamba and Victor Osimhen came close to allowing LOSC to match, but that was without a large-form Alfred Gomis. Dijon went on to play a third game without defeat and confirmed his solidity at home. For their part, the LOSCs stagnate and return to fifth place.
