In a poor match between Montpellier and Nice (0-0), the Nigerian striker from MHSC was the one who tried the most. The second top scorer in Ligue 1 (7 goals) struggled on the front of the Hérault attack, despite the very good Todibo on his back. He got the best chance of the game by hitting the post with a powerful left-footed shot (32nd). Before hitting the post a second time, with a header in the second half, even though he was offside. Without him, the 90 minutes would have been even sadder. Adams did not succeed in deceiving the best defense of the elite but he had the merit of trying everything, with very few cartridges.
Without doubt the main satisfaction of Nice of the evening. Still undefeated, the Gym and its Polish goalkeeper recorded an eighth meeting without conceding a goal, in 12 contested days. Despite a few risky restarts, Bulka never wavered on his line and was imperial in the air. A sign of a successful goalkeeper, even the post helped him by repelling Adams' shot. Since August, the former PSG player has only conceded four goals, including two lightning strikes from Kylian Mbappé. A real rampart well protected by the defense led by Dante.
The Montpellier central defender, who finished the match at left back, was very solid with his Swiss friend, Bećir Omeragic. The 21-year-old Frenchman stood out for his anticipation and his own recovery. He left only crumbs for Nice's number 9, Terem Moffi. A successful performance which relieved Benjamin Lecomte, who ultimately made little contribution to the Aiglons' meager opportunities.
Unlike his compatriot Adams, the Nigerian from Nice seemed helpless until leaving the field in the 67th minute. Never able to face the game, the 24-year-old striker made do with a few pivot throws but his record remains very insufficient. Symbol of a visiting team lacking solution and dynamism on the offensive level, Moffi did not worry Lecomte once. And his replacement, Evan Guessand, didn't do much better.
The day after a superb Thursday of the European Cup for French clubs, the opening of the 12th day of Ligue 1 offered a tasteless 0-0, the second of the season for the MHSC, the third for the Gym . Without rhythm, the 90 minutes seemed long despite the commitment of the 22 actors. The players likely to ignite the spark, like Téji Savanier, Musa Al-Tamari or Sofiane Diop, did not find the key, resulting in a soporific duel. Too bad for Mosson spectators and football fans.
