Brest vs Troyes (By: Alcuni)
Brest – Troyes
Brest had a very good first part of season and is no doubt one of the main contenders for a direct promotion after Metz. But don’t forget also last season had a good first part of the season but collapsed in second part and finished only on top 5, losing versus LeHavre the playoff game. No doubt, coach Furlan will wand to avoid this to happens again and will capacitate his players till the end. A difficult schedule fot hem in first round when played versus 3 potential promotion chalangers losing only Metz at home (interesting Metz- Brest will be played in last round and who know how much will count this game at that time). They had in Charbonnier the best man of the squad, he finished with 16 goals first in top scorer table after first part of the season. Brest is the team with best attack in Ligue 2 almost with an average of 2 goals per game. Nothing yet in transfer campaign; for this game Jesse Pi is injured and will miss.
Troyes had a very difficult start of the season. With a single win and 5 defeats in first 6 games of the season and only 2 goals scored in the process they had a lot to recover and in high percentage they succeed to do this. In the remaining 12 round they took 8 wins and finished not too far of top 5. But don’t forget this is one of the most leveled seasons in Ligue 2 many teams having chances to finish in top 5 and to catch a promotion playoff. So Troyes must be careful in second part of the season and not lose some games they have in hand (see versus Sochaux and GFC Ajaccio games last year). They made a smart move somewhere in the middle of first 19 games bringing in Fortune who slowly replaced in the field old (and at that point, injured) Nivet (who still is playing at a good level despite his age). No additional games for them in Cup being knocked out so they can focus on championship only. Two players who played not so much Bethomier and Sissoko left the team and nothing of the acquisition sheet so far. 2nd GK is injured and a 17 y.o GK is in the squad, but no important missing for this trip.
This should be an entertainment game, keeping in mind that face to face are two of the teams with spectacular attacking game. Is true we had 6 overish game yesterday but here probable we will see some goals too. But I see a balanced game which perhaps will end all square (2-2), so back the draw. gl
