The championship continues with Créteil – Le Mans at 6 p.m. this Friday at the Duvauchelle stadium, and Saint-Brieuc – Red Star at 8 p.m.
Créteil “must do more”
With the reception of Le Mans (9th), Créteil (3rd) can sign the pass of three games without defeat. But it is above all a fifth victory in seven outings at home that the team of Carlos Secretario is aiming for, with Christopher Baptista returning from suspension. “Even if we see ourselves very beautiful, we must do more, we do not have the performance of a contender for the climb for the moment compared to the average of points taken. In 11 games, we are at 1.45 while we have to turn at least 2 points to look up, ”says sports director Rui Pataca.
Bru – Ollé-Nicolle, time for reunion
Arrived in mid-October in Créteil and already scorer in the last draw at Boulogne-sur-Mer (2-2), the relay midfielder Kévin Bru will cross paths with Didier Ollé-Nicolle, coach of Le Mans, whom he knew at Clermont, in 2008-2008. That season, the 31-year-old Cristolien, trained in Rennes, had played 25 Ligue 2 games.
Release of Covid for the Red Star
Since the detection of 9 positive cases for Covid-19 in its ranks the day after the match in Orleans (1-1) in mid-October, the Red Star was at a standstill. The 11th in the National is impatiently returning to the field, especially since he has 6 games to play by the end of November. “It forces us to play every three days, but the boys like it especially when it wins,” says coach Vincent Bordot. Beyond the physical aspect, it is necessary to take care of the risk of mental relaxation. More than two and a half weeks without playing, it’s not easy to manage, but I felt the group happy to meet again. “Before the cut, the Red Star had resumed colors with three victories (Concarneau, Laval and Créteil) and a draw (in Orleans) in a row.
Cheikh Ndoye first!
To resume his march forward, the candidate for the (re) rise in Ligue 2 can count on the great beginnings of Cheikh Ndoye. The 34-year-old Senegalese international, who arrived in early October, joined the group for the first time after contracting the coronavirus. The former captain of Angers (L1) who has not played since March 26, 2019 and the friendly Senegal – Mali (2-0) during which he had seriously injured his left knee, should start on the bench in Brittany.
The number: 8
The Red Star is the National club that has played the fewest matches this season in all competitions since Sète and Villefranche (8 matches also in the league) have entered the competition in the Coupe de France. On the eve of this 12th day, the five-time winner of the event has still not played his 5th round at Mée (R3).
