Laval vs GFC Ajaccio by Alcuni
Parking the bus and hoping for a 0-0, Laval really made a poor first half against Troyes, losing in the end 0-1. Was 2 complete different halves: first one completely dominated by Troyes, who opened the score after 20 minutes of play thanks to old fox Nivet; A lot of defensive mistakes from Laval but all of them missed with serenity by Troyes. After the break, Laval played more courageous, had many moments of good football and put few time in real danger Troyes goal. But wasn’t their day and even they looked better in many moments they couldn’t avoid this defeat. Was second time when they finish in this manner, after losing 0-1 away at LeHavre – remember was s similar display. So without any luck, Laval remains with a single point won in opening game. With more concentration and attention in defense, 3 points were close to what they’ve shown in the field.
GFC Ajaccio is coming after another draw on their own pitch after a 0-0 in first round. Now they hosted LeHavre in a potential spectacular game and finished 1-1. Well wasn’t a spectacular game as I expected, but over all was a nice game too watches with enough pace and few opportunities on each side, a game decided by 2 errors (one of placement at LeHavre goal and the other one of Ayasse at GFC goal). Overall GFC was a bit better, had more time the ball and created more than their opponents, but both teams with little inspiration in front of the goal. For sure, over all, GFC Ajaccio deserved more than these 2 points at home so far; but still is the beginning of the season and we can consider valuable this point won against a good team like LeHavre.
Here is quite difficult to make a choice. Despite losing on the road against Troyes and LeHavre, Laval played quite good being unlucky not to return with point(s) from these two trips. On the other side also GFC Ajaccio looked good so far and see no reason to be otherwise here. Still count on the fact that at home Laval is quite difficult to be beat so back the draw. gl
