Laval vs Arles-Avignon by Alcuni
Laval is nothing special these days. After sold their main striker Bekamenga to Troyes, they scored a single time in 3 games, from penalties at home against Orleans. After that they weren't able to score even Orleans played in 9 men for 50 mins or so.. They will be more defensive team in last rounds. Lets say they have in 95% saved 9-10 more points in last rounds I think will be more than enough.
Arles.....still have chances to stay in Ligue 2. Not only because of the final table but there are another facts (financial especially) who can decide relegated teams. Namely: in Ligue 1 Lens is not feeling great; they have financial problems and can be relegated in National direct. In Ligue 2 another 2 teams have same situation LeHavre and Valenciennes (remember they were relegated from Ligue1 in lower league at the end of previous season) and will wait the final of the season for conclusions. Also, let's not forget Nimes who can be relegated due the fixing games scandal from previous season-- scandal who is not finished yet. So ...taking in account the final table, can relegate, let's say, only a team.
Anyway a bit early to be sure in 100% about it but this can be happens
But Arles improved lately. Due the campaign had in the winter transfer period they put in charge an experimented coach Zvunka and bought good players for this level and some signs are seen already. They beat Nancy and Brest bot 1-0 at home (Agains Brest I was convinced they will not lose, but was surprised to see them winning) and took a point away at Tours 2-2, even they played in 10 men for a good period in game.
Another speculation (but only speculation). I remember in 2012/2013 with few rounds to go Laval was almost safe. They need also about 5-6 points in last 7-8 games..And hosted Arles who was in bad shape and need points. And Arles won 3-1 after Laval opened the score.... What followed after that games surprised Laval..who saved only beating away at their "friend" LaHavre. Yeah, this things are happened few times when Laval were involved... see also Laval - LeHavre 0-2 one season before when LeHavre need 3 points in order to stay in Ligue 2( and perhaps are more).
So I'll back Arles to take all 3 points (without checking team news) and alternative bet Arles +0.5 @ 1.97 gl
Don't be so cruel now:-))))))))))))))))
