Ligue 2: Laval vs Istres
Laval seems detuned after the winter break, as they had an unexpected exclusion from the Cup against amateur team of Valence, and a defeat away to Chateauroux with a score of 3-1. Two times threatened the opposing plate. Against Chateauroux they had a terrible defensive performance and they should receive more goals. Their defense has many gaps and they already received ten goals in the last five meetings, which all of them finished with over 2.5 goals. Their coach announced some changed to the squad, but he will not alter their offensive philosophy with three strikers in front. Ludovic Gamboa returns to main eleven, while striker Lhadji Badiane is long term injured.
Meaningless was the superiority of Istres against Monaco, and they didn’t managed to avoid the home defeat with the score of 0-1. Istres players had passion and pace, but they spent lot of final attempts to score, and saw their undefeated streak of seven matches to be interrupted, and they are also retreated in15th place of the league table. It was only the third time in the season that they didn’t scored. To nine games away from home, they scored to eight. Their line up will stay unchanged, as they do not have cash to acquire some players, but the good news is that there are no problems with missings and they can deploy their best.
Two of the most open teams of the league faces each other, Laval playing so open at home while Istres playing open away from home, we should see more that two goals there.
