Orleans vs Tours by Alcuni
A game between two teams who are in the bottom of the table after 10 rounds.
Orleans came after a defeat on the road at poor Niort, after a pretty boring game. Didn’t see too much football in this game, both being focused not to lose rather than to take a win. Was Niort the one who scored the single goal of the game in the end of first half after a corner kick and some hesitations from two Orleans players (including their GK). After conceded Orleans tried to bounce back in second half, had a huge chance to score due to a rapid counterattack, but the red card saw by Armand put the mark of the team evolution till the end of the game.
Tours is in a free falling with 5 defeats in a row the team is rock bottom in the table with only 6 points. With 3 goals received in 4 out of those 5 defeats and 2 in the other one, Tours have the worst defense in the league with 21 goals conceded. Remember last season, under Simone’s command, they had a good defense, playing many games defensively. OK now under Mercadal they’ve change their style but, come on, don’t think they forgot all what they’ve played under Simone. Despite these poor results coach Mercadal still have the support of the Board but I wonder till when? In last game Mercadal tried to change a bit, keeping out of the squad 4 starters. The result: another disaster 0-3 against GFC Ajaccio and of course a poor display. Gradit saw red card and will miss here. Also Maouche is suspended. After Filippi, old striker Maoulida ex Nimes signed with Tours (but not in the squad) Another changes in the squad for Tours: now Miguel, Raveloson and Bergougnous are back in team while Pereira Sa, De Almeida, Do Couto remains sidelined.
Two poor teams which struggled a lot so far. Both are in bottom of the table and, damn it, no evident signs of recovering. Both teams conceded a lot and scored also. I expect a tight first half but after the break both will risk due the current table situation, so let’s try over 1.5 goals in 2nd half. gl
