Racing Metro vs Northampton Saints by Serialtips
Rugby, Europe, Champions Cup
Pool Stage, Leg 1
One of the big matchs of the week-end between the two favourites of this group.
I think that Racing-Métro will win it because Northampton struggles against teams who has a big defense.
Indeed, their few losses last couple of seasons are all against that kind of teams.
This season, only one loss for Northampton, and it was against the Wasps who are known to have a big defense with James Haskell, Ashley Johnson or Chris Bell.
I saw this match and Northampton's offense was completely clueless against the Wasps's defense, lack of creativity of Myler and duet of centres were eloquent.
On the opposite side, Racing-Métro has an amazing defense, all their players are defending with a strong intensity, this is clearly for me the best defense of top 14, and one level higher than the Wasps.
That's why I think that Racing-Métro will beat Northampton like the Wasps did, but it's hard to see a big margin, so I bet the win of Racing-Métro between 1 and 12 points.
