The Grenoble team played a solid match against a formation promoted from Ligue 1. They used a 4-3-3 system. Bamba, already a skilled player, was able to accelerate and cause havoc in the Auxerre defense. He was the one who served Ba with the quick opener (1-0-4th). Red Star attacker, who was arriving in new colors, scored his first goal.
The attacking trio Tell Ba, Ba, and Bamba were interesting overall. Vincent Hognon made a logical change to everything after the break.
The Iserois people did not break apart and made another clean copy. They quickly regained the lead despite Ben Fredj's equalizer (1-1, 61st), Okardi following a shot by Jeno (2-1, 64th). This was the conclusion of a convincing trial run.
