Newly crowned Swiss league champions Young Boys attempt to break through into the champions league for the first time ever this Wednesday night at the Stade de Suisse in Switzerland. Fearless, Goal Scoring, Fired up young boys have started the new Super League campaign how they ended it last season, with strong composed football not letting anybody break them with 4 games played and 4 wins. Their counterparts Dinamo Zagreb are no slouches either with 3 wins and 1 draw to start there season in Croatia’s HNL division.
Matchday 2 of the Premier League season is upon us and I’m more interested in the Midlands derby between Leicester and Wolves than any other game on the schedule this week. Leicester will be looking for the 3 points at home after a disappointing loss to Manchester Utd last weekend, despite having more possession and shots on goal the Midlands side couldn’t find the back of the net until Vardy came on the pitch and started a party. Leicester fans minds will be at ease this week, “Jamie is training well this week with his team-mates and he is available,” said Foxes manager Claude Puel. “He has a good chance to start.”
Clermont – Chateauroux
Clermont finished previous season up in the table being alsmot till the end involved in the promotion playoff. But lost in last round ( 2-2 vs Paris FC) the chance to catch a spot to allow them to continue the fight for promotion. Comparing with the previous year we can see 5 starters left the team main GK Bernardoni, defenders Centoze and Fontaine, midfielder Lopy and striker Ajorque plus Djellabi who retired. Bring in als o players used to play in Ligue 2 as Albert, Aye, Nsimba, Gastien and Ogier so I believe they will be a balanced team who will put lot of problems to any in Ligue2. In friendly they took 3w1d1d, 10-1 goal difference, including a clear 3-0 win over Chateauroux. Gastien and Iglesias are suspended
Also Chateauroux had an incredible good season for a new promoted. Was up in the table till last few rounds when took no win in last 4 rounds. A team with an offensive game as coach Vasseur used to us lately. Some changing in the squad as 5 starters left the team, 4 of those being defenders : main GK and an important man Hassen ( one of the fewest man from Ligue2 who played in WC in Russia), Traore, Alhadur, Nyamsi, Mabella plus striker Benrahma. After the loan period Sarr signed a valid contract with them- which is a big plus in my opinion, coming also Vanbaleghem, Conde, Contreras – less know for me players. 3w and 1d in the friendlies with a 8-7 goal difference
Despite previous friendly game ended 3-0 for Clermont I see a different game now both playing open game and I see BTTS. gl
