Ligue1 Round 21: Sochaux – Reims Preview

Sochaux really impressed last round against Marseille. They fully deserved the 3 points, after all the players made a lot of efforts, created many chances, converted in cold blood and defended in numbers.
There was no individual player to rely upon, but truly a team attitude made the win possible. It’s not possible for them to keep up with this lighting rhythm, but now, with this being only the 2nd game after the break, there’s enough fuel available for another great performance.
Midfielder Lopy is suspended, but midfielder Contout and defender Kante will be available after injury. Especially Contout can add pace and vision in their offensive play, making them even more dangerous than against Marseille.

Reims were just disorientated last game vs Bastia. They didn’t had any clues upfront and the defense appeared to be softer than ever. Their top scorer Courtet is clearly out of form and playing against a team that defends in numbers and with determination (like Sochaux) won’t help him gain confidence…

In the center their defense is acceptable, but the craters on the sides drag them back in every single game. They lack form, morale is low, capabilities haven’t improved and there are no options for changes…
If things continues this way, they will enter a monotony that will get them closer an closer to the relegation zone. And most probably this is what will happen in the next few rounds…

Sochaux definitely holds the momentum here and they need all the points they can get. They have the necessary quality to exploit these kinds of situations in their own benefit.
Sochaux to win.
