Sochaux vs Valenciennes
Sochaux – Valenciennes
Sochaux is going thru deep changes for another season. After changed a lot last season under a new coach German Zeidler, now under a Spaniard coach Aira they were forced to change again, many of the players leaving the squad. Until things will arrange for them, Aira proposed a defensive display for this first game of the season playing for a 0-0. And the things seemed to go in this direction until Sochaux were penalized with a strange penalty with 15 mins to go, penalty converted by Grenoble. After the goal Sochaux were unable to react on the score table, losing in this way the first game of the season.
Valenciennes had a perfect start of the game and of course of the season scoring 3 times in first 20 mins to take a clear win versus strong Auxerre 3-1. They had in Dos Santos one of the best player on the pitch – he scored one game and gave 2 assists for Robail who scored twice. Aloe scored in own goal the nicest goal of the game, but in the end this owngoal didn’t count too much. Was a nice game with both teams playing good football, with Auxerre being more present but only after 0-3, dominating second half but must mention without too many clear chances at Perquis net. Moreover, was Valenciennes captain Roudet the one who missed 2 great opportunities in 2nd half. No doubt, under no circumstances, the Valenciennes win can’t be contested. Will they continue on this track or we will have also in this season ups and downs evolutions from Valenciennes?
Expect an open game with both teams to score and an overish game. gl
