Clermont vs Le Havre by Alcuni
Prior the first whistle of the referee Frappart, Clermont seems to have a difficult game at Laval, against a defensive minded team. But a perfect start of the game brought an early goal for Clermont, in 6th minute, and Clermont was in control till 30 mins – Laval with no chance to score till then. But the referee shown too easy 2 yellow cards in 3 min to Avinel and made the game for Clermont even worst than they expected prior to start. Clermont defended well but conceded in 83 minutes and could have received another goal in the remaining time. But for sure would have been too harsh for them, cause didn’t deserve to lose. In injury time Rivieyran saw also 2nd red card of the game and together with Avinel will miss here. Main GK Jeannin remains injured.
With Bradley on the bench for last time (he resigned and signed with Swansea) leHavre made a good game and managing to take a win 2-1 against unbeaten so far Sochaux. Was a game controlled for most of the time by LeHavre but without creating too many chances. They scored twice taking full advantage of some mistakes made by young Sochaux GK Prevot (a GK who have some nice saves during the game but, of course, the mistakes are those who remain on the table). Defensively they were quite good, the replacement of Farnolle (injured for this game) – Thuram- making a good game (is true he conceded once but, for me, was a clear offside at Andriatsima). Summing up LeHavre take an important win but their game was overall what their fans expect. Important missing also for them in this game as Gimbert, Fortes and Chebake are all suspended, while Cambon is injured. Good news holder Farnolle is recovered.
OK, Clermont will miss 3 defenders but for LeHavre will miss their creative Gimbert. So LeHavre will lack of creativity in this game. True is LeHavre will have a new main coach but Oswald Tanchot was the adjunct of Bradley – so he knows everything about the players. So won’t be a minus here, I guess. Two good teams, each with lot of problems, will end all square. 1-1. gl
