Niort vs Tours by Alcuni
Niort was the better team in previous trip, away at Bourg Peronnas. They were the dominant side, the team who create a lot but, as they used to us, a team who easily miss the chances they create. But a red card received complete free by Bong near to the end of the end of first half it took some of the power that showed until then; A second part with less football than first one but with more goals, both teams scoring once in the end of the game. So the team remains with a single win in last 10 rounds, drew 7 games in the process Last week-end Niort hosted in form National team Les Herbiers in French Cup and won 3-1 after a game they have it in charge from very first minute. Some problems for this game as the first goal scorers from Cup game J Roye and Lahaye are suspended.
Also, Tours it’s continue their poor run in championship, having a single win (against Evian with a goal scored in the end of the game) in last 7 games, losing 3 times in the process. At home against Clermont, they played much better than their opponents, dominating the game but with some luck Clermont snatched a point. Being led 0-1 after 45 mins, Tours pressed a lot scored once and missing another 5-6 good chances to score (they had 2 posts). So, maybe is better for them when are playing poor and collecting points than playing good and dropping points. On the road they are happy to play economical and to take 1 points, drew so far 6 times out of 9 games played (Italian coach – Italian job).
Without some important name in their squad, will be a bit difficult for Niort to create many chances to score, as they did so far, in most of their games. Keeping in mind Tours will try to avoid defeat I believe we will see another draw for Niort “queen of draws”. gl
