Orleans vs Chateauroux
Orleans – Chateauroux
Somehow expected, due to numerous players who left the team, Orleans started very slow the season. They have the worst defense after 6 rounds conceding 14 goals but have 6th attack in the league with 7 goals. So far 4 games were ended with at least 3 goals (1 win and 3 defeats).After 3 consecutive defeats at the debut, Orleans took 4 points in following 2 games and think seemed to be on a positive way. But came a difficult trip at LeHavre and Orleans lost 1-3 after again a poor game. So, they remains for the moment in the bottom part of the table with only 4 points as AC Ajaccio and Red Star. But they bring a good midfielder from Lens, Ephestion (who was injured so far, tough) so is expected to see a more organized Orleans in coming days. He Is in the squad but will miss El Khoumisti and Furtado.
With an offensive minded coach, Vasseur (who demonstrated this in previous season and previous teams) Chateauroux is one of the most defensive team in these six rounds. Only 4 games scored and 4 conceded and a single over in 6 games. Is way too little for me, who expected to see same beautiful team from previous season. And perhaps we will see same defensive Chateauroux in the coming days because one of their best player Sarr was loaned at Lorient and for sure without him Chateauroux will suffer at construction. They tried to replace the players left so far bringing in Sissako and Yamga. Merghem is suspended while Mandane is not in the squad.
Chateauroux is unbeaten in last 6 trips in Ligue2 but 5 consecutive draws. Against an Orleans who is searching themselves I see them settling for another draw. gl
