Nantes against Troyes, a match between a subtopper and a relegation candidate. But also a match between two outstanding goalkeepers. Do we get a winner or keep both goalkeepers clean?
Only three points earned Les Canaris from the last five games, with only two teams performing worse in the last five games. Against Olympique Marseille last week was played right, but given the game was more than miraculous. Claudio Ranieri’s team had only 21% possession of the ball and got 22 goals, but still managed to score a 1-1 draw. By no less than nineteen violations, resulting in 4 yellow cards (including two for Nicolas Pallois), Les Canaris were able to play in five games for the third time.
Big man on the side of Nantes in the match against Olympique Marseille was, as is often the case, Ciprian Tatarusanu. In his debut match for Nantes, also against Olympique Marseille, the Romanian managed to make nine saves, and in this match Tatarusanu also managed to make four saves, although that could have been more like the sight of the Marseilles. was standing. With 28 competitions in 27 league matches for Tatarusanu, only the goalkeepers of PSG and Montpellier HSC have had fewer goals.
With two losses in the last two games, Troyes dropped to eighteenth place, putting Jean-Louis Garcia’s team under the relegation streak again. Both against PSG and Stade Rennes, ESTAC clearly did not have a clear view with a total of only two shots on goal in two games. Especially in the match against Stade Rennes, the team of Garcia fell against, with despite forty percent possession no shot at goal, resulting in the ninth loss in nine away games.
Like the opponent of Saturday, Troyes got a lot of goal attempts last week, a lot. No less than thirteen attempts were made by the Parisians to the goal of Erwin Zelazny, who managed to play the first six times, but then had to capitulate. The Frenchman who took over the spot under the crossbar from Mamadou Samassa in January still performs at least one point per game as good (or bad) as his predecessor, but if he is more likely to show his form of the first half against PSG, he will save enough points for Troyes in the near future.
