Football Ligue 2. SCB – Guingamp, Mission 42

This is the number of points Sporting can get tonight if they beat Guingamp on their lawn. The number of points a priori sufficient for maintenance. Faced with formidable Bretons, it will finally be necessary to find the way to the nets

Things are clear: Sporting must beat Guingamp to achieve the 42 points synonymous with permanent maintenance. No way to remember, to think for two hours, you have to go. The danger that awaits the Bastiais, it is these 39 points that are already in the backpack by saying that of the six games still to be played, three will fall. And then it starts to look a bit like the holidays…

Frankly, I was a bit afraid of demobilization for the trip to Amienssays Regis Brouard. Especially because we played against a team we don’t like, very athletic, very physical. And then we saw the result: a respondent was lying on the floor. The players were there. They know very well that with a win, not getting the championship, the goal is achieved. So we still prepared well for this match against Guingamp with even a very angry session on Thursday.

The arrival of the Bretons is an opportunity to meet Stephen Quemper, who left this winter in the Côtes-d’Armor. The left side, with two and a half seasons in the blue ranks, knows the Sportinghuis and had to distill valuable information to his coach Stéphane Dumont. Because if En Avant is rescued, it won’t come as a tourist.

Work for the cause this week

If the opportunity arises to be the first club to take down the SCB on its lawn… Suffice it to say, this competition promises to be quite rampant: “They kind of have the same tactical scheme as uscontinues the Bastia coach, except they have three attackers. It is a team that scores in all its matches and against Toulouse (loss at home 2-4), they did a great job† †

Ask attackers exactly, Sporting eats his black bread. The competition in Amiens illustrated a sector that had become harmless over the winter. The last time Sporting’s attack scored more than once was on February 14 against Le Havre. And we have to go back to January 8 to find another match sheet with more than one goal: 3-0 against QRM. The problem has recurred since the start of the season. Régis Brouard and his associates are well aware of the problem. † Not only do we score less, we also create fewer chances. It may be related to the prolonged absence of certain attackers. It could also be related to the absence of our best passer, Sébastien Salles-Lamonge. We are not dangerous enough. We certainly have defensive solidity, but we don’t have offensive madness. But we are faced with this problem in the face. And three of our sessions this week were devoted to target practice.

A quick word about rookie Zolotov

The concern is that the Bastia coach cannot do what he wants. Or as he pleases. Magri (ankle) and Saadi (ashamed) are still in the infirmary, with Taoui. Robic, he was sick all the beginning of the week. This limits the choices a bit. Fortunately, there is Talal. Able to play in ten, but also behind his attacker, in support, such as against Dunkirk in mid-March.

The Santelli-Talal pair could thus be entrusted with the mission of these 42 points. Two players, two left-handers, who seem complementary, between power and passing quality. For the rest this Sporting, in this 33and day, should appear in the same pattern as in Amiens. Uncertainty remains in the defense as to whether Boco has finally recovered and can claim a starting spot.

Finally, yesterday, Régis Brouard mentioned the signing of Nikolaï Zolotov from the Ukrainian club Kovalivka, this week: “ He can play both left and right because he plays with both feet. But be careful, he played his last pro game in February, so he’s not done yet even though he continued to train. We had been following him for several months and the dramatic circumstances forced his loan to close. It’s a bit like a trial and if we have the chance to test it in a competition, we won’t hesitate!
