Reims vs Orleans by Alcuni
Two of the first-round performers are meeting in Saturday clash in Ligue 2.
Reims made a good game away at Nimes, most of the time being under huge pressure from Nimes side, since from the first seconds of the game. They defended with much calm and had some good actions. But at the middle of the first half they leveled the game a bit, counting more in attack. A 0-0 at ht with some luck for Reims, Nimes hitting the post twice. In the debut of second half Reims was more active upfront than in first half and scored the single goal of the game. After the goal, a counter game, with Nimes again more dangerous in front of the goal but once again no luck for Crocos. Good debut for Reims, keeping in mind the final score, but for sure a lot of do. Lemaitre injured will miss
After winning the playout against Paris FC, Orleans make the debut in Ligue 2 against relegated from Ligue 1, Nancy. With many changes compares with previous official games, Orleans made an excellent game, wining with no doubt 3-1. They didn’t lost on home ground for some time now and I presume they will continue with some good evolution. Remains to see now how they will cope on the road, being know they were one of the worst away team in previous season. Boubi (the killer of Reims in previous game played on this pitch) is back in the squad while D’Arpino will not make the travel here.
Really I don’t understand why Reims is so huge favorite here against a tea who made good signings and beat clearly Nancy in first round. Now will be a different game with Reims attacking and trying to unlock a, perhaps, packing defense, Orleans parking the bus and trying on counter. 1-1 for me. Gl
