This 45th week of the year is all or nothing for Lose Survivors. If the leader seems out of Jonava’s reach, his followers drop like flies.
Jonava reached the 100 goal bar
It’s a big day for FK Lietava Jonava. The Blue-Whites, the proud bottom team of the first football division in Lithuania, reached a symbolic milestone this weekend at the Banga lawn. A 2-0 defeat, but above all, the 100th and 101st goals conceded in the league. A nice rate of -90 for 11 goals scored in 35 days. We don’t know which average makes us salivate more: 1 goal scored in every 3 games or 3 goals conceded in every game. We are offered a rich choice.
Jonava, more than ever, is our champion of survivors of defeat.
Lyngby, our dolphin is gone
This is tragic news for FFLs. There is no more second place in the Survivors rating. After 16 days without making any mistakes, Lyngby gave way to the Danes. Forget the smallest bad matches, Lyngby BK bid farewell to our elite with a victory over Silkeborg (2-0). Maybe Raymond Poulidor’s place in the sun no longer suits him in our rankings. The only light on the board, the status of the worst attack and the worst defense in the championship, allows him to take the last place.
This is another heavy hitter on our list. Last week, the person who quietly took the 8th place in our ranking made a mistake. Indeed, Stade Briochin bid farewell to hopes of a perfect season on the lawn of Versailles, but finished 2nd in the National. Versailles thought they had the match in hand when Saint-Brieuc striker Aimeric Gomis-Maillard was sent off in the 48th minute. But Amir Nuri’s goal in the 71st minute ended Briochine’s series, which was accompanied by a penalty shot by Versailles in the last minutes of the match. Eleven days without a win for nothing.
FMH vs FFL, two federations to clash
Maybe you don’t know, but there is a diplomatic incident between the famous Macedonian Handball Federation and the FFL. Indeed, in just one week, the Superliga has taken away two of the inhabitants of our classification. It all started with Junior Kisela Voda, winning the first 8 days, but the winner of the country’s capital, Skopje.
Before we even had time to grieve, another Macedonian club slipped through our fingers this weekend: Vardar Negotino. Not to be confused with RK Vardar’s last-second winner against PSG in the 2017 Champions League final. Leading 15-9 at halftime, Negotino found sources who knew they would win the second half 18-11 and overturn the match (27-26). Macedonian double slap.
