Reims vs Sochaux (By: Alcuni)
Reims – Sochaux
Reims slow down a bit in this start of 2018 and despite taking 3 wins and a draw in 5 games their game is not at the same level as was in 2017. Still due to mixed results taken by the teams behind them they keep a comfortable lead of 10 points now when remained 14 rounds to go. So their have the biggest chances for a direct promotion spot at the end of the season. After losing 0-1 versus Lorient their period without scoring continued at Brest where they were able to snatch a goalless draw. Once again, their proposed not to lose against top team making a defensive game. 1st GK Mendy, playmaker Rigonato and Kamara are all injured.
Sochaux is coming a perfect game in championship 4-1 versus GFC Ajaccio but a harsh defeat in French Cup 1-4 against PSG. A game against PSG can’t bring you positive results these days, keeping in mind the huge difference between them and a second league team. So this defeat was a logic one. But this defeat let some problems in their squad the biggest one being the injury of an exponential player Martin who will not play till the end of the season. This and extra-football problems (financial ones who can relegate the team in National at the end of the season) can have some bad repercussions in Sochaux camp. Let’s see who they will cope in the near future. So Martin, Teikeu and Kalulu are all injured and will miss here
Reims didn’t show great football in 2018 despite the results. While Sochaux is on ascendant shape. I think is a lot room here for a surprise so Sochaux +0.5 is the choice. gl
