Nancy vs Chateauroux
France – Ligue 2
Date: Friday, 8th February 2019
Kick-off at 19.00 UK/ 20.00 CET
Venue: Stade Marcel Picot (Nancy).
The Thistles are struggling at the bottom of the league and are certain to be relegated from Ligue 2. Alain Perrin’s tactic is not working, as they won 4 matches in the whole season. Missing quality players in midfield and forward position are hurting them very much.
ASNL always try old-style long ball football with two players up front. They are very weak in keeping possession of the ball, under 35% of ball possession per game.
La Berri is trying to finish in the mid-half of the table. They play more of a physical game and try to break opposition’s rhythm. Nicolas Usai always chops and changes his starting eleven and use different formations every match.
Chateauroux has done better going forward, scoring 21 goals this season. Protecting goals after scoring has been their main problem, conceding 1.2 goals per game.
