Sochaux vs Metz
Tough week for me and an illness who kept me out from Ligue2 previews for this round. A round with lot of surprising results.
Last game of the round bring face to face Sochaux and Metz two team with different start of the season.
Sochaux is on a bad run having 3 defeats and a draw in last 5 games. Single win came versus newly promoted Beziers but after a poor gae tough. At Nancy, Sochaux made a defensive game versus a team who have lost all games played at home. They were too shy upfront and didn't take advantage of plenty of weakness shown by Nancy. They are a team who still searching, plenty of new players, a new style due to Spanish new coach and others Spaniards. But i think in 3-4 rounds they will make their style to work and will climb in the table ( currently 15th spot with 10 points after all games from this round was played). Owusu still not recovered for this game.
METZ HAD A PERFECT START OF THE SEASON WITH 7 WINS IN FIRST 7 ROUNDS BUT SOMEHOW THEY REDUCES THE ENGINES AND LOST LAST 2 GAMES. But in both they were better for long period of games, versus Paris FC played 1 half with one man extra but didn's score enough goals to comeback from a 0-2 deficit while at home versus LeHavre they heavily dominated but had no luck to score. They conceded at the single shot on goal LeHavre had but is true also they didn't had too many shots on goal despite that domination. No doubt, dsepite these defeats Metz remains the best team in Ligue2. For this game Sunzu is suspended but important striker Opa Nguette was recovered from an injury.
Don't think Metz will lost third game in a row ( there is a word "Non c'e due senza tre"). I think Metz will be too strong for Sochaux and will colect 3 points regaining first spot in table. 2-0 for Metz. gl
