Red lantern, Chambly secretly dreams of last year’s scenario before moving to Troyes (2nd), this Saturday (7pm), during the 10th day of Ligue 2. “It’s a team cut out to go up in Ligue 1, considers coach Bruno Luzi. We are in the bottom of the wave, they are just in full swing. A bit like last year… ”
The allusion is dropped. It refers to a stroke of brilliance that still resonates in Camblysian memories. Arrived at the Aube stadium on November 22, 2019 with results at half mast for 8 days (1 draw, 7 defeats), the club had offered the scalp of the Estac, then 3rd, torpedoed 0-4!
“That’s the magic of Chambly,” emphasizes defender Aniss El Hriti who scored the third goal after returning from the locker room, the very first of his career in Ligue 2. This club is always where we least expect it. . We are a little frustrated now because we deserved better against Dunkirk (0-1) but we have no doubts, we are right at the moment. We remain humble, we are Chambly, we go to the 2nd, but we have nothing to lose. We are going to play our life like in every game now. “
Captain Thibault Jaques and his partners dream of offering themselves a breath of fresh air this Saturday, they who have won only once this season and remain on four defeats with eleven goals conceded (for 2 registered) during the last four days! “Even if it’s another season, another match, it will be in the minds of some, it is obligatory, indicates Bruno Luzi. They have already done it once, so automatically they should say to themselves: you never know, on a misunderstanding … The group is lacking results and therefore confidence, but it continues to work well. We hope it will pay off one day. The earliest would be best. “
Deprived of victory since September 26 (2-1 against Châteauroux), the Camblysiens indeed know that a new coup in the Aube would be doubly beneficial, in terms of the standings and morally. “Even if it was not in our favor against Dunkirk, the intentions and behavior are there,” says Aniss El Hriti. If we continue on this path, I am not worried. We’re all together, we’re going to sacrifice ourselves for each other, it’s going to pay off. “We do not feel a group defeated, it is far from having abdicated,” says Bruno Luzi, who gradually recovers his collective.
After the return of Joachim Eickmayer last Saturday, it is indeed Lassana Doucouré who returns from injury (thigh). As for the attacking midfielder Guillaume Heinry, absent against Dunkirk due to a positive coronavirus test, he is also in the group which will board the bus for Troyes this Saturday morning. The new test carried out this Monday was negative this time. “When you’re asymptomatic, it’s okay, there’s nothing to complain about,” says Heinry. But it’s a strange period, we know that the situation is complicated. It’s still football, we have the chance to do what we love when a lot of people struggle and do not have the chance to go to work. We worked well this week, we have to show that we are capable of competing against these teams… ”
