Championnat National U19: PSG Continue Good Form And Monaco Hit Six

Laurent Bonadei sees his side top of the table after six games.

Laurent Bonadei sees his side top of the table after six games.

Group A

Paris St Germain continue to occupy top spot in Group A after Yakou Meité netted a double for the French giants.

Laurent Bonadei’s side face Benfica in the UEFA Youth League this week, which should pose a far greater test than Avranches, who occupy the relegation spaces, managed to put up.

Free-scoring Lille are PSG’s closest contenders to the group title at this early stage as they added to their tally by thrashing Racing Club 5-1 away from home.

Alexis Araujo netted a brace for Lille while goals from Richard, Vanbeleghem and an own goal set them on their way to a rout away from home.

Next weekend, Lille have a derby match against Valenciennes, who sit comfortably in mid-table.

Paris St Germain 2-0 Avranches, Racing Club 1-5 Lille, Amiens AC 0-1 Lens, Valenciennes 1-1 Quevilly, Drancy 1-3 Arras, Amiens SC 3-0 Le Havre, Paris 1-0 Caen.

Group B

Evian and Sochaux are still leading the pack in Group B after both sides celebrated home wins this weekend.

Sochaux beat Pontarlier by a single goal margin as they triumphed 3-2 while Evian beat Epinal 3-1.

Auxerre continue to rise back up the table after a slow start as they took three points at home to Dijon.

Auxerre 1-0 Dijon, Nancy 3-1 Mulhouse, Sochaux 3-2 Pontarlier, Strasbourg 3-2 Reims, Evian 3-1 Epinal, Troyes 1-1 Metz, La Chapelle 3-1 Sedan.

Group C

Nantes failed to make much progress on their bid to defend their Group C title as they entertained a goalless draw against Lorient over the weekend.

Guingamp remain top of the table as they celebrated an away win against Bordeaux.

Enzo Crivelli was red carded for Bordeaux as they suffered their third defeat of the season in just five games.

Valentin Vada put in an impressive performance for the hosts and even scored, but it wasn’t enough to gift Bordeaux anything out of the match and condemns them to 11th place, one place above the relegation zone.

Stade Brest 1-1 Stade Rennes, Tours 2-1 Colomiers, Bayonne 0-3 Stade Laval, Bordeaux 2-3 Guingamp, Lorient 0-0 Nantes, Chateauroux 3-1 Niort, Le Mans 1-1 Angers.

Group D

Monaco are back on track and back to winning ways after they hit six past Clermont this weekend.

Juan Arcas and Aboubacar Kamara both scored twice for Monaco. An own goal and a strike from Tristan Muyumba finished the thrashing.

Andrezieux sit bottom of the table after they lost to Cannes, meaning they haven’t scored once this season and have conceded 20 goals in the process.

Gallia Lucciana 0-3 Ajaccio, Montpellier 2-4 Lyon, Saint Etienne 3-1 Bastia, Nice 0-0 Nimes, Monaco 6-1 Clermont, Andrezieux 0-2 Cannes, Le Puy 0-0 Toulouse.
