some infos

Nimes – Niort

Nimes is in midtable but they showed good play last games. Jonathan Parpeix (df 14/0) leave last weekend game in 24th minute and he is doubtfull for this game. Amewou (mf 17/0) fit and readdy for whole game. They won 5 of 6 last home games..

Niort in relegation zone, won once in 15 Ligue 2 games. They like draws (2-11-5). Out are: Mickael Courtot, Paul Delecroix (gk 1/0), Tristan Lahaye (df 7/0), Jimmy Juan (mf 3/0), Quentin Bachelier, Mustafa Durak (att 15/5)

Carmarthen Town – Port Talbot

Scott Young takes his side to Richmond Park following successive defeats to Airbus UK and TNS but is again without Cortez Belle and Carl Payne who are both ruled out through suspension. Young also has doubts over the fitness of Ryan Green who sat out last weekend with a calf injury. Luke Parry may return to the squad after recovering from a knock.

AGOVV Apeldoorn vs Fortuna Sittard

AGOVV may play their last ever match in the Jupiler League, there are big financial problems. they scored 10 goals in last two games..

MVV vs FC Eindhoven

Eindhoven without: Marco Ospitalieri, Josemar Makiavala, Rob van Boekel, Timothy Durwael, Soufiane Dadda, Jelle van Kruijssen, Jason Bourdouxhe, Sjors Paridaans, Vinnie Vermeer

here is h2h suspicious to me, Maastrichs won first period so they have sure playoff place and i would not be suprise if they fix something

Monaco v Tours FC

 Monaco

In:
Ribas (att, Genoa), Bajrami (mf, Twente), N’Dinga (mf, AJ Auxerre), Poulsen (mf, Midijylland), Raggi (df, Bologne FC), Diaz (mf, FC Metz), Erichot (mf, Leiria), Malcuit (att, Vannes), Nimani (att, PAOK)

Out:
Niculae (Kuban), Tzavellas (Eintracht Frankfurt), Malonga (FC Lausanne-Sport), Mangani (AS Nancy Lorraine) Yatabare (SC Bastia), Pinteaux (Sedan), Hansson, Vahirua (AS Nancy), Carrasso (Stade Rennais), L’Hostis (Amiens)

As i wrote every round from last half season, Monaco is working on comming back in Ligue One. Russian billionaire buy them and bring manny good players. Also he was giving them good gifts. They had the largest premiums, for each win they get 5000 €, each player..Now between seasons main players didnt leave club and they bringfew quality players: Andrea Raggi, a former Italy Under-21 international defender, but it’s been the midfield that has been most impressively bolstered. Denmark international Jakob Poulsen has been joined at the club by Delvin Ndinga, a player wanted by Lyon last summer, and winger Emir Bjarami, a Sweden international.  Also they bring expirience coach Claudio Ranieri. I can see just one posible problem: there are manny new players and from manny countryes so maybe they will not undersatdn each other from beggining. But most of them have half season behind them so it should not be big problem. Abouth changes in squad, Andreas Wolf is finally fit after a difficult six months and it’s great, he will be main defender. With him in defence would be newcommer Ragi. Midfield would be stronger for N’dinga, Bajrami and Poulsen while Ibrahima Toure secure his place in attack with 10 goals in half season. Other playyers have quality but must wait their chance. It’s healty competition and ambicious club must have strong bench too. And Monaco has it. They have all what is need to won league and promote, maybe even to do something in cup..

Target:
Monaco is main favorite for winning league

Probably line up: Danijel Subasic, Eric Marester(r)(def), Andreas Wolf (back after injury), Gary Kagelmacher, Andrea Raggi (new pl from Bologne), Emir Bajrami (new pl), Jakob Poulsen (new pl), Delvin N’Dinga (new pl), Nabil Dirar, Valere Germain, Ibrahima Toure

   

Tours FC

 

In:
Christian Yao Kouakou (att , Muangthong Utd), Nicolas Seguin (df, Lyon), Jean-Bryan Boukaka (att, Rennes), Thomas Fontaine (df,  Lyon), Brice Maubleu (gk, Grenoble), Xavier Chavalerin (mf, Lyon), Erik Pacinda (att, Kosice)

Out:
Romain Sartre (df), Julien Cardy (mf, Arles-Avignon), Jérémy Sopalski (gk), Romain Genevois (df, Nice)

After last 6th place they want at last the same. Cardy (mf 29/3)and Genevois (df 30/2) are important leavings. German coach Zeidler bring all young perspective players, some of them buy, some of them on loan and that’s club politic, in past there was developing Laurent Koscielny and Olivier Giroud. So squad will not change a lot, from newcomers his palce in attack will have young Kouakou and other will wait their chances

Target:
They would like promote but more realistic is top 6

Probably line up: Benjamin Leroy, Stephane Tritz, Clement Fabre, Leo Schwechlen, Wilfried Moimbe,Billy Ketkeophomphone (14/1), Thomas Gamiette, Yacoub Meite (9/0), Diego Rigonato Rodrigues, Christian Yao Kouakou (new player from Muangthong Utd), Jeremy Blayac
