RAF: Rodez, the victory of the heart

Later, combined with a harsh penalty from host Pau, Aveyronnais used their resources to earn three points in extra time on Saturday, January 13. Here they are seventh!

In the bitter cold, the two teams put on a match of high quality, both in terms of the final and the intensity of every action of the game. Man in the lane Abdullah is in a good position to deflect Taïbi’s cross (1-0, 53rd); Aveyronnais then stepped in to keep up with the rhythm of the game. After 50 minutes of trouble, Pau finally entered the match, buoyed by the skill of attacker Sylla. And there it took two outstanding saves from Ruthenian goalkeeper Cibois (68 and 78) to preserve the Rouergate moves.

However, Pau would equalize with Sylla from the penalty spot. A penalty confirming a mishandling by Aveyron captain Danger, which was hardly obvious. Sylla scored the goal and Danger, who still could not digest the penalty, was sent off after a reaction that the referee found too harsh (1-1, 87th).

Therefore, we thought that the match was over and we were heading towards the equal score. A serious error of judgement, because the Ruthenian’s heart was still beating strong enough for Younoussa’s just-returned shot to find its way into the Pau net in the final seconds of the game (2-1, 90+4). Rodez was jubilant, the crowd was excited, and together the players and Rourgats fans forgot the pain of the cold.

And now go to Côtes-d’Armor

“It’s a brutal scenario,” said manager Usaï, “we should have gotten a point. With Didier Santini he always wants his players to go forward. It was difficult to defend against RAF.”

Rodez finds himself in seventh place before traveling to Guingamp in the next match. The dynamics of the first half of the season continue to delight Paul-Lignon under his spell.
