Orleans vs Le Havre
Orleans - Le Havre
Orleans put an end to their winless strike, taking a surprising away win 1-0 versus Lens. The win is more valuable if we keep in mind that this win came when Orleans plays in 10 men versus 11 men, also scoring after this red card received. But till the red card they’ve made their game, playing without fear an attacking football. After the red card, the approach was changed - defended well and hit on counter. An important win for them, a win who climb them in table till 13rd spot with 27 points. Ziani is suspended due the red card reeived at Lens; in rest same squad as per previous game.
After 3 consecutive draws, LeHavre took their first win in 2018 against 2nd spot Nimes, 2-1. An awful start of the game, conceding quite a rapid goal – Alioui scoring after only 2 mins of play. For most of the first part they were dominated by Nimes ( who missed another chances of goal) but thanks to the referee they received a free penalty just before the HT, penalty converted by Mateta. A penalty that bring back them in the game cause till that moment they shown too less. Coulibaly is suspended while two players left the team in last day of the transfer period: Julan and young star Guitane ( but he stay at LeHavre till July 2018). Instead Dzabana from Lyon joined to Lehavre. Def Bese is injured.
Not a great start for 2018 at home with 2 defeats in a row against top teams. Well will be a difficult period for Orleans hosting another 4 top teams in next 4 home game. No doubt they will not lose it all. Keeping in mind LeHavre was happy with draws on the road lately (3 ot of last 5 away games) I think there is a high probability for another draw. gl
