Bad season last one for both teams, with Sochaux that ended only two points over relegtion and Caen relegated from L1
Sochaux left many players, most important ones def. Navarro ( 23 1g), cotopscorer Demirovic ( 4g), Bayala ( midf. 14 2g), Paez ( def. 11), Fuchs ( midf. 20+2 2g), key7 def. Verdon ( 30 2g), Cruz ( striker 21+9 1g) and various rotation players.
Chinese owner not want invest too much and most aprt of acquisitions come from lower league.
So the team seems further weakened respect last season, more Moltenis ( def.11+2) and newcomer def. Senzemba are out and newcomers Tourè and just arrived Thioune are not called for this match. In teh group of 20 players called there are also two not porfessional players at their debut.
About Caen, relegation cause the exit of many players, of course, but only Djiku ( def. 31 1g) and Baysee ( def. 20) have a consistent number of apparition as starters last year, but arrived other ones of good quality.
Today guests without Fajir ( midf. 36 4g), both topscorers Ninga ( 6g) and Crivelli (6g), Sankho ( midf.6+9), Onianguè ( midf.26+9 2g) and a couple of newcomers are out.
Odds are dropping in favour of hosts but also without some important starter i think Caen remain better then Sochaux, a team already involved in battle for relegation last year and that made almost nothing to reinforce in spite of many losses.
