Strasbourg mostly shines in cups
“Racing” was not really remembered in the 21st century within the framework of the championship – except for the leap in the last decade from amateur football to the top professional division, League 1. But if over the past 20 years it turned out to be In the championship, a good result is considered to be that one manages to simply not fly out. In the last draw, it turned out to score a good 42 points – it seems to be a lot, as for 38 matches, but Nantes, who finished 18th and played in play-offs, was only 2 points behind. Now we managed to take a draw with Troyes and beat Brest at home. But all 3 away fights brought only defeats.
Mets so far without victories in the new draw
“Maroon” in recent years have contrived to add all the time. First, in 2019, I managed to win Ligue 2 and return to the elite division. There, the newcomer entrenched, and at the end of the 2020/2021 season even climbed into the top 10 (47 points and just 10th place in the final standings). But now Federic Antonetti’s wards do without victories. They started with a 3-3 draw with the reigning champion – the teams reduced the match to a spectacular 3-3. Then, however, there were draws with Reims and the newcomer, Clermont. The rest of the meetings were lost. The pause for games between the national teams did not help either – after them, last Sunday, the Metz lost at home to a newcomer, Troyes. Moreover, the first goal of the guests was scored by Gerson Rodriguez, who moved from Dynamo Kiev to the summer “deadline” – wow debut!
Mets 11 times in a row did not lose to Strasbourg. But in February Racing managed to take the victory, and on the opponent’s field. Thomasson scored strong-willed 2-1 with his double.
Both the hosts and guests were not particularly impressed with their form at the beginning of the season. We do not expect a spectacle from them, betting on “less than 2.5 goals” (coefficient – 1.78).
