Nancy vs Lens
Nancy – Lens
Nancy is continuing the awful shape from previous season having 0 points, 0 goal scored and 4 conceded after 2 rounds. In previous game, they lost 0-2 at Paris FC after a game they had no shot on goal during 90 mins, being way to shy upfront. The new comers Sane, DaCruz and Seka didn’t bring the expected plus so far, seemed to have need much more time to play at the expected level. Also keeping in mind that one of their best player last season Bassi is thinking to leave the team so no much effort from his side too given the circumstances. Anyway, expect that the tough start of the season to continue also after this game against a team who started very well. New signing this days Maboulou ( but not available yet) while N'Guessan is still suspended.
Lens is the single team who didn’t concede a goal in first two rounds, taking two win at nil. After a 2-0 versus Orleans on the road, they beat 1-0 Red Star in front of their fans (present in huge number aprox 30000) after an extremely poor game. No doubt, the weather had a major contribution, the game being played on a extreme wheatear for football. The single goal of the game was scored by Fortune, 4 mins after replacing Bayala who suffered an injury after about 35 mins of play. In rest not too much to see, a slow tempo with Red Star having the ball more time but without creating too many opportunities ( they scored once in the end of first half but the goal was disallowed for an offside position). Comparing with previous season, when had 7 defeats in a row, now Lens seems to be on opposite side having in front of them a team who struggle a lot and perhaps will not put too many problems. Bayala is injured
Don't expect something positive from Nancy yet. A blazed team who seems forgot to play. Against an inform Lens I rate them being second best for almost all the game. Bac kLens to take their 3rd win of the season, inflicting more misery in home squad. gl
