Lorient vs Chateauroux
Lorient - Chateauroux
Lorient finished 2018 in knees having a series of 5 games without a win. And yet a new disappointing season for Landreau’s team who finished first part of the season out of top5, 1 point behind Niort- 5th in table. Even they are on this position, their football was poorest compared with same period of the last year, exponential players as Cabot, Petkovic, Maurice being out of shape for most of the season. Also new comer Sarr (ex-Chateauroux star last season) didn’t bring the plus Landreau is looking for at the middle of the pitch and no doubt Lorient coach have enough reasons to be unsatisfied after first 19 rounds. They called back striker Sissoko loaned at Beziers – this being so far the single new name in the squad. Lemoine is suspended.
Losing influential player Sarr at the beginning of the season, J Vasseur weren’t able to build a new competitive team as in previous season being sacked after some poor evolutions. New coach Usai took 10 points in last 7 games and somehow made from Chateauroux a hard nut to crack. (3-win x 1-0 and 3 defeats at one goal difference). So, if last season we saw many times an offensive minded Chateauroux, in first 19 rounds many unders for them. Auctally they scored only 14 goals being 2nd worst attack in the league after Nancy. So far a single name come in Chateauroux squad Alhadur from Caen and he is in the squad. But Operi and Yamga are missing for this trip, both injured.
Lorient is desperate for a win and perhaps they will take it. But Chateauroux is playing tight and I guess a narrow win for Lorient is the most expected outcome. gl
