Wembanyama with no mercy, Bosz with no apology, PSG with no tremors, Rugby World Cup: the news of Friday 7th October 2022

What not to miss between last night and this morning

1. Basketball: Wembanyama, winning show (this time)

New showing. Victor Wembanyama (18) made a splash in Game 2 between the Metropolitans 92 and the G League Ignite in Las Vegas on Thursday. Moreover, the French club secured victory in this second clash after losing the first on Tuesday. Wembanyama slammed 36 points, picked up 11 rebounds, managed 4 blocks, and most importantly, looked disconcertingly light during the success of his 112-106 against a formation that Scoot Henderson was quickly stripped of. The potential No. 2 in the next NBA draft (behind rate who) only played five minutes due to knee-to-knee shock with the tricolor phenom. This returns to France crowned with a strengthened planetary reputation.

2. Soccer – Europa League: Rennes makes it to the finish

He sometimes has the gift of being annoying, but above all he has a talent for football. Désiré Doué, 17, scored the winning goal for Stade Rennais (89th minute) in the Europa League on Thursday evening. “He’ll have to improve his decisions very quickly because it’s not the first time“, his trainer Bruno Genesio summed up the tendency of his young wisp to make the decision alone. A requirement proportional to the potential of Doué, who earlier this season became the first born player to score among the five “Major European Championships” in 2005, after beating Dynamo Kyiv 2-1 at home on Matchday 3, Rennes sits 2nd th place in his group, level on points with leaders Fenerbahçe (7).

3. Football – C3/C4: Nantes prevents the three-color full card

Round ball, always. Alongside the Rennes success, the European night for French clubs has been good. In the Europa League, AS Monaco beat Trabzonspor on the Rock 3-1 with a decidedly found Wissam Ben Yedder (author of a brace after a league hat-trick Erling Haaland-style). OGC Nice also won the Europa League Conference with the smallest away result at Slovacko. Only FC Nantes in C3 missed the connection with a 0:2 defeat against Fribourg. The Canaries are third in their group.

Four consecutive defeats in the league. Olympique Lyonnais hadn’t experienced that in the 21st century… until the series it regrets at the moment.
