The 10th day of league 1 continues, with five meetings to follow this Saturday live in the Multiplex Europe 1, presented by Lionel Rosso. On the program, from 8 pm: Angers-Brest, Metz-Nantes, Nîmes-Amiens, Reims-Montpellier, Toulouse-Lille.
Angers, always at home top?
With four wins and a draw in five games, Angers (3rd, 16 pts) is the best team of this start of the season at home. A status to confirm against Brest (12th, 11 pts) against Bretons who have not won the slightest match in four trips. Two teams that have some defensive difficulties. Angers conceded fifteen goals, including four at Parc des Princes two weeks ago, in nine games against thirteen goals for Brest. A lively match in perspective?
Duel of extremes
Metz (20th, 8 pts) faces Nantes (2nd, 19 pts) at the stadium stage Saint-Symphorien. A totally unbalanced match on the paper between a Metz team already beaten five times this season and Nantes in full confidence with six wins over the last seven days. After nine matches, Metz has the third worst attack of the league with eight goals scored while Nantes conceded only five goals.
First for Kombouaré
The new Toulouse coach Antoine Kombouaré will officiate his first meeting on the bench of the TFC against Lille this Saturday. The Toulouse (18th, 9 pts) welcome Lille (5th, 15 pts) still unable to win away (2 draws and two defeats). Toulouse have not won in the league since the fourth day and must win if they want to leave the red zone. Lille hopes to clinch their first away win before receiving Valencia in the Champions League next Wednesday.
Reims-Montpellier, speaking to the defense
Everything brings Reims (6th, 14 pts) and Montpellier (7th, 14 pts) at the beginning of the season: the two teams have the same number of victories, draws and defeats. Reims and Montpellier are among the best defenses in the league with four and seven goals conceded.
Move away from the red zone
The goal of Nîmes (15th, 9 pts) and Amiens (11th, 11 pts) is clear: win to get away from the relegation zone. Nothing alarming for both teams in view of the ranking but from an accounting point of view, a victory for one of the two teams would do the greatest good.
