Clermont vs Sochaux
Clermont – Sochaux
Clermont is coming after another 0-0 (second one after the one from first round at home versus Chateauroux) this time on the road versus Le Havre. A bit strange these two 0-0, cause came after good offensive games with plenty of chances to score, both versus some a-priori offensive teams. Also strange cause Clermont had in previous 2 games in championship (and also one game in Coupe de la Ligue) scored at least 2 goals (and conceded a lot in championship: 7 goals). Was their first game without striker Dugimont who leave the team for Auxerre, a game with two diametral halves: one dominated by LeHavre and second dominated by Clermont. A game with 2 goalkeepers in great shape, both saving plenty of balls and kept the table immaculate. Bad new for Clermont is they are still without a win after 4 games and with only 2 points they are not feeling great in the table: 17th spot. Clermont signed these days with an young GK Descamps from PSG while Honorat is dealing with St Etienne. Phojo and Honorat are missing for this game.
Sochaux lined 2 wins in championship beating 2 good teams of the Ligue2: Ajaccio on the road and Brest at home. They were much better than Brest in last game, dominating first half and scoring a goal in each half. After 2-0 the game become completely poor, Sochaux didn’t force at all while Brest being unable to threaten Prevot’s goal. Seems that Sochaux need it only 2 rounds to gel the new comers (plenty as number) the team playing decent football for this stage of championship. Let’s keep an eye on new “Spanish style” Sochaux a team which can become dangerous for any of promotion contenders and not only. Josema and Glaentzlin are injured; instead Galilea and Obadeyi are making their first apparition in the squad.
Time for first win of the season for Clermont. They aren’t at all a bad team but so far, no luck. Sochaux is still a team which is searching itself despite the last 2 wins. Expect Clermont to win . gl
