Evian vs Montpellier by Isaiah
Evian won away to Ajaccio with the score of 2:3 in a very fair result according to the match reports. Evian was better to the most duration of the game and they had the absolute control and the lead in scoring, while Ajaccio seemed to awaken at last minutes only where they missed some opportunities but could not reach the equalizer.
Now this big win in Corsica will be wasted if they will throw points away in a home game against a team that did not showed something good so far. The current progress of Evia is very good for their match data and their roster, many sponsors started attracting their club, and if they will keep like this they can have a quite good season.
Sub defender Diaranke Fofana, main striker Marco Ruben (1/0) and main left winger Cedric Barbosa (4/1) will miss the game, all these players were absent in the previous match too. Evian squad: Laquait, Hansen - Dja Djédjé, Sabaly, Wass, Angoula, Mensah, Mongongu, Cambon - D.Koné, Sorlin, Barbosa, Bénézet, Sougou, Nistor - Bérigaud, Escobar, Bertoglio.
Montpellier is coming from a goaless draw at home against Reims, a very poor quality match according to the match reports where both teams had only a few clear chances to score and the final result is fair. Reims was slightly better but not worth the victory.
Montepellier is not playing good football recently and this is obvious. Not only the fact that they have just one win after five games but also their image does not look good. They are facing troubles to building the game and they play with lack of imagination and generally they play boring football without any teamwork.
Main left winger Anthony Mounier and main right winger Djamel Bakar are both back to the squad, but defensive midfielder Jamel Saihi, left winger Karim Ait-Fana and main right back Garry Bocaly have not yet had a chance to compete in the league and they are still out. Montpellier squad: Pionnier, Jourdren - Congré, Hilton, Tiéné, T.Mezague, El Kaoutari, Jebbour - J.Marveaux, J.Martin, Cabella, B.Dabo, Sanson, Stambouli - Mounier, Herrera, So.Camara, Deza, Bakar, Montaño.
Evian has to prove that they are in a good shape after the big win away to Ajaccio and i think that they are a better team at the moment than Montpellier and closer to win tonight's game.
