Metz and Le Havre are neutral at the end of matchday 27 of Ligue 2, status quo at the top of the classification
There was no winner in the shock of the 27th day of Ligue 2 on Monday evening. Metz and Le Havre ended in a draw (1:1). The Mets opened the scoring in the first period before Richardson tied the score for HAC after returning from the locker room. The Normans are nine lengths ahead of their runner-up in Bordeaux. Metz, for its part, remained in 4th place.
Le Havre, badly placed on Metz turf, drew in the second half (1-1) to go 25 matches unbeaten in the league at the end of the 27th day of Ligue 2 on Monday. Still comfortable leaders, Le Havre (56 points) is 9 points ahead of second-placed Bordeaux. Metz, who could have finished 2nd if they won, stayed 4th with 45 points, also ahead of Sochaux (46 points).
At the end of the day, it’s the overall status quo at the top of the classification, as the top five are all tied. Messinders were second on the Ligue 2 podium at half-time, opening Youssef Maziz’s 20th-minute opener before Abli Jallow’s superb finish 3 meters from Le Havre’s goal.
Le Havre have not lost in the league since August
But the Grenadines went cold as Richardson (46th) equalized with a powerful strike seconds after his return from the dressing room. Alexandre Oukija was then on the march to prevent Le Havre from doubling the stakes with Quentin Cornet’s (50th) strike. Two minutes later, the same Cornetta again hit the ball past Messi’s cage.
Metz also had chances to take the lead, but Youssef Maziz and Georges Mikoutadze missed great chances in the second half. Le Havre has not lost in the league since moving to Valenciennes on August 6, 2022, on the second day (1:0). A series that will give the Normans a more realistic view of promotion in League One, with only two teams promoted this season.
