Evian- Week 18

Lorient vs. Metz

 

Match Date: 13 December 2014 (local time)

Venue: Stade du Moustoir Lorient

 

Lorient

Lorient’s loss to Bordeaux pushed them towards the rock bottom part of the league table. Landing on the 17th spot, the club is just two (2) points away from the relegation zone. On a closer look, the team’s current form is pretty satisfactory. However, previous defeats and thrashings led them into this kind of struggle.

 

Metz

Metz’s encounter with football betting’s top pick, Marseille, led to a heavy thrashing that denied them the three (3) points. Fortunately, the newly-promoted squad made a good start, which has protected them from any massive slips.

 

Metz currently sits at the 13th spot of the table and still a few notches away from the relegation zone. Metz, however, is winless in its last five (5) matches and therefore, cannot afford to suffer another loss.

 

Prediction

Lorient 1-1 Metz

Stade de Reims  vs. Evian Thonon Gaillard

 

Match Date: 13 December 2014 (local time)

Venue: Stade Auguste-Delaune

 

Stade de Reims

It was quite (unexpected) to see Reims fell into the hands of the lowly Guingamp. But they already did. The said scenario, therefore, resulted in its 2nd consecutive defeat and has prevented their rise in the league table.

 

Reims has already won, lost and drawn twice.

 

Evian Thonon Gaillard

Evian has nothing to be ashamed of when it lost to Lyon last week. They put up a good fight, which put up a scare against their strong opponent. Performance-wise, Evian has really nothing to worry. But perhaps, the only thing that will keep them bitter is the fact that they missed out on the opportunity to improve their current rank.

 

Prediction

Stade de Reims 2-1 Evian Thonon Gaillard
