French Football Friday: Nancy and Le Mans early Ligue Un surprise packages

Ollie Irish

17th, August 2007

Nancy and Le Mans finished level on points last season in distinctly mid-table positions. They are level on points again three games into the Ligue Un season, but both have a 100 per cent record and are top of the table. As you can imagine, Le Mans set the pace headlines are de rigeur. Pre-season favourites Lyon and Marseille are both languishing in the bottom-half of the table, although Lyon have a game in hand.

While Le Mans were racing to the top of the table, they still found time to concede this peach scored by former Manchester United and Sunderland you’re-not-going-to-make-the-grade-sorry-son David Bellion. We don’t know where the keeper thought he was off to, but Bellion still makes it a cool finish.
