Clermont-MHSC: goalkeeper Benjamin Lecomte thinks he stops a penalty but the referee gives Clermontois a second chance

Déception pour Benjamin Lecomte, qui a arrêté un pénalty en vain face à Clermont. Midi Libre – JEAN-MICHEL MART

Pas de réussite pour Montpellier sur ce coup-là. Comme au match aller…

Clermont-MHSC, penalty story, new episode. This Sunday afternoon, Montpellier is trailing 1 to 0 at half-time, after the referee of the match, Thomas Léonard, gave away a penalty (caused by Jordan Ferri) from Muhammed Cham stopped by the Montpellier goalkeeper Benjamin Lecomte on his right.

Remember the first leg…

Reason given by the VAR: Lecomte anticipated the penalty and therefore did not have both feet on the line. In the process, the Austrian international de Cler! mont converted his second attempt, despite Lecomte having started on the right side on his left.

A hard blow for the Hérault club, which was trailing at the break after dominating the first half. A double blow even, if we refer to the first leg (MHSC victory, 2-4), which saw Téji Savanier score two penalties for nothing.

Because "The Firecracker Affair" ruined everything. After disciplinary sanctions, the match was replayed and ended in a draw (1-1), the starting point of the difficulties for Der Zakarian's men this season.
