Troyes found themselves held to a 1-1 draw by Annecy FC, with Mehdi Tahrat playing a pivotal role in his team’s goal. The match, held at the Aube Stadium, saw an early setback for Troyes but also showcased Tahrat’s playmaking abilities.

Annecy FC struck first, taking the lead in the 16th minute, leaving Troyes trailing early.

However, the home side quickly responded. In the 31st minute, Nicolas de Préville equalized for Troyes, thanks to a precise assist from Mehdi Tahrat.

This assist marked Tahrat’s second of the season, a positive note for the 34-year-old central defender who has featured in 24 games this term.

Despite the early goal conceded, Troyes showed resilience. David Guion’s team managed to level the score before the break, demonstrating their fighting spirit.

Tahrat, instrumental in the equalizer, not only provided a crucial pass but also exemplified leadership on the field.

However, the match wasn’t without its challenges for Tahrat. Just before halftime, in the 44th minute, he received a yellow card for dissent, highlighting the intense emotions and high stakes of the final matchday.

As the first half concluded with the teams locked at 1-1, Troyes faced a grim reality.

Despite their efforts on the pitch, the draw meant that Troyes would be relegated to the lower division, a disappointing end to their Ligue 2 campaign.

While the result did not favor Troyes, Mehdi Tahrat’s performance stood out.

His contribution to the equalizing goal showcased his vision and ability to influence the game from a defensive position.

Ending the season with two assists reflects Tahrat’s dual role as a defender and a playmaker, crucial for any team’s dynamics.

In summary, the 38th matchday of Ligue 2 was a mixed bag for Troyes and Mehdi Tahrat.

The draw against Annecy FC, while marking a personal achievement for Tahrat, also signaled the end of Troyes’ stint in Ligue 2.

Fans will be looking to see how the team, led by experienced players like Tahrat, will bounce back in the next season.
