Reims vs Nancy by Alcuni
Reims – Nancy
Reims is continuing they good run towards promotion, taking another win on the road. After surprisingly lost 1-3 at poor Chateauroux, Saturday the travelled at Lens, a team who recovered somehow their shape, and won 1-0. But was nothing special from their side, scoring a rapid goal and putting a similar display as they did in previous season under der Zacharian. A compact defense and nothing more upfront. Was a welcome win who keep them in the top of the table, one point more than surprising AC Ajaccio. For this game Kone will miss being suspended.
On the other side, Nancy have plenty of problems in their battle to climb in the table for the moment. Some missing and suspended players (including main GK Jourden) made them to have a poor display and to collect unbelievable less point than expected. They are just 2 spots above relegation battler – one of the worst scenario possible for them. Too many draws for a team who started the season with promotion ambitions. In a season where the draw results decreasing drastically, Nancy is the team with most draws in first 12 games – 5. Last one at home against Clermont, after an entertaining game ended 2-2. Another overish game made in Cup de la Ligue, losing 2-3 (3rd goal came in injury time) at Reims, in a game where used lot of bench players ( only 1-2 starters).
No doubt Nancy will playdefensive football here as they did against Nimes and Lorient on the road and will be happy with a draw. gl
