Sochaux vs Tours
Sochaux – Tours
From mid of Februarie 2018 till now Sochaux had a terrible schedule so is no wonder why they took some bad results. Lost against Reims, Ajaccio and Paris FC all involved in the promotion battle and at the middle of the week versus one of the most in form team of the moment Auxerre 0-4. A single win in this gap of 5 games 3-2 versus another promotion contender LeHavre after a miraculous comeback (they were 0-2 after 20 mins). Along with this difficult program, Sochaux had and have a long list of injured players who counted a lot in their evolution. Despite these results they are in a safe position, mid in table with 43 points and perhaps will no live dangerously in this end of the season. Berenguer saw red card in last game and will miss here, while Kapp and Kalulu were recovered for this game.
Being rock bottom in table with only 14 points and in a difficult situation, Tours have been hit by a tragedy last week, one of their youngster died. Their game versus Valenciennes was postponed due this reason. Tours reduced the gap since play-out spot at 11 points following an unexpected win on the road at promotion chaser Brest. Was an incredible 3-1 for Tours, after their best game in this season. Was their first win on the road so far and they can hope. I didn’t expect this to happens, saying last round that Tours is relegated. Time for a miraculous salvation there is a lot; There are 30 points till the end of the season more than Bourg, Nancy or Quevilly collected so far. Moreover, Tours will have many games versus teams from the 2nd part of the table and can take advantage from these games. Still slim chances for them but for sure, they are hoping. With another win here (and possible their 4 positive results in a row) and negative results from the other teams above them and everything is possible.
Tours will have no chance other than to attack. Will Sochaux show some mercy for their opponent? Many injured players in home squad make me to believe we will see some goals in this game. Perhaps an overish game. gl
