Troyes, the host of this dispute, is quoted as having the first chance of winning, but not necessarily as it should have been through the fact that he has a greater experience and added value by coming from the first echelon. Troyes has relegated from an extremely weak season made by blue men and who are now forced to struggle to return to Ligue 1 but with a completely new formula. In the first round, Troyes managed to score on the AC Ajaccio field with the score of 0-1, we need a spectacular game to get all three points. It remains to be seen if the defensive tactics will be retained, or the game will run at a faster pace than the last time.
Brest, the guest of the game, is coming to Troyes on the terrain with the thought of breaking the ice in the second round and bringing the first points in the club’s accounts. The French-led Furlan team tried to win a promotion last season, but the play-off ended quickly for the lost reds in front of Le Havre. This year it’s going to be different, but things seem to be heading to the same ranking area. Even in the first game, Brest lost to Metz on his own ground, indeed we managed to do too much in front of this band. And this time it will fight a freshly demoted band, but the ambition has to overcome these elements.
Blue men have a much better morale than the visiting team after their first-round victory. This is not really very important because a reunion can be made by any formation that has more ambition than the opponent. The two bands do not know each other well, but I think everybody will mark the gate and the Brest will eventually come home at least one point in his pocket.
