Tours vs Laval by Alcuni
Interesting bottom of the table duel, when ex-Tours coach (Simone) team Laval will travel at Tours.
Tours survived at Clermont and took an unexpected draw keeping in mind the circumstances. They played for more than a half in 10 men after Maoulida saw direct red card and even more played in 9 men in last 10 mins when Filippi saw also red card. Anyway they were drastically punished by the referee (strange but at this game was a referee from….. Laval) who gave at least one red card too easy plus closed his eyes at a possible penalty for Tours. A heroic defense brought them a point; but they remain rock bottom in table with 14 points and -10 goal difference. Was for 4 times this season when they linked 2 rounds without losing. A lot of problems for them as Bouanga, Maoulida and Filippi are suspended. Will they break their mentioned above record, linking third consecutive game without losing?
Difficult to say because is coming here Laval coached by Simone. Simone who was previous coach of Tours is knowing very well this team and keeping in mind he left Tours after some disputes for sure will want to prove his value and will come here to win. I am pretty sure he will field a defensive team and keeping in mind Tours is forced to attack, Laval will try to catch them on counter. Laval surprised couple of time in recent rounds when playing away taking 2 important wins 3-1 at Ajaccio and 2-0 at Reims first game with Simone at command.
With 3 key players missing and with a revenge desire from Simone’s side, back Laval to take another away win and to pile more misery to Tours. gl
