Le Mans: A severe crisis ( Recent Form: L L D L L )
Le Mans could not escape the danger zone in the First Division. They are currently ranked 18th with only 21 points. This is the position that will make Le Mans attend play-off relegation. However, the home team may not be able to keep this position because the opponent is below the point. Le Mans is playing very badly in recent times. 5 rounds passed, Le Mans did not have a victory. They lost 4 matches and only got 1 point. The attack of the home team is still firing regularly but the new defense makes the fans headache. Le Mans owns the worst defense in the league with 40 goals from the beginning of the season. At home, Le Mans only won 1/5 of the last match. However, at least they have hope because Le Mans drew with the stronger opponents like Nancy or Grenoble Foot 38 here. Rodez can be considered an opponent who is dirty with Le Mans because they only lose to the opponent. Poor form again encountered a formidable opponent, the home team can hardly think positive after this game.
Rodez: The best chance of splitting ( Recent Form: L D D W D )
Compared to competitors, Rodez is a lot safer. They are ranked 14th in the rankings with 27 points and 6 points higher than the relegation group. Rodez can temporarily rest assured because even if they lose, the visitors cannot fall into the group holding the red light. But not so that this team has a subjective right because the 3 points acquired will help Rodez jump and separate from the top ranked team below. In the last 5 rounds, the visitors have only 1 defeat. However, in the remaining 4 matches, Rodez also only got 1 victory and 3 draws. This is not a bad result because it gives Rodez 6 points after 5 rounds. More importantly, it shows that the visitors have gradually stood up after losing matches continuously in the December period. If Le Mans played poorly at home, Rodez would not be better with the record of winning only 1 match. in 5 rounds to be a guest. In the remaining matches, they lost to 3 and drew only 1. Anyway with a familiar opponent like Le Mans, Rodez can completely repeat the habit of defeating the opponent.
THE BETTING VERDICT:
After all, Le Mans is going through dark days with consecutive matches only known to fail. They are very close to a direct relegation and only victory will help Le Mans not fall into "quagmire". Rodez, however, is not an easy opponent to play. Historically, the two teams have only had three encounters. Le Mans lost all 3 matches and scored only 1 goal against the opponent. In the first leg, they let Rodez overwhelm with a score of 4-1 at home.
