Grenoble vs Lorient (By: Alcuni)
Grenoble – Lorient
Grenoble took their 4th consecutive draw in 2018, a spectacular 2-2 at Chateauroux. Due to these results they are now on 9th spot but just 3 points behind 5th spot. Same good game, but also same bad luck as in previous games vs LeHavre and GFC Ajaccio. They were in lead at half time, after scored twice in 15 minutes. But a not so great second half, being leveled at 2 even conceded 3rd goal but disallowed for an offside. Once again, they were pleased with a point after a balanced game though. Coulibaly is suspended due to 3 yellow cards in last 10 games. Spano is injured while Boussaha was recovered for this game.
Despite all kind of problems Lorient had, they took an important win 1-0 versus in form AC Ajaccio, a win who keep them on 3rd spot after 23 rounds, 6 points behind Brest who is 2nd in table. The game started very bad for them as after 10 mins they lost RD Mendes who got a nasty injury and will miss till the end of the season (more problems now for coach Landreau who must improvise at least until Pereira who also is injured- will come back in squad). More over ex AC Ajaccio player Sainiati (who played all minutes so far for Lorient) saw red card being sent off. And they were under some pressure due to a good game played by AC Ajaccio. But was necessarily only 10-15 good minutes in 2nd half and a long distance shot converted in goal by Maurice to take a vital win. Maybe a draw would have been more suitable. So Sainiati and Sarr are suspended, while Mendes and Claude Maurice are new injured players.
Tough game for Lorient keeping in mind team news. But considering Grenoble became a draw specialist in this year I don’t see any reason not to continue on this path. Perhaps a 0-0. So back the draw. gl
