Recap

After a fight of almost two months, Sochaux obtained authorization from the French Football Federation to play this season in the National, the third division of French football, avoiding bankruptcy. This decision removes the specter of bankruptcy which, for a time, hovered over this historic French football club. Ninth in Ligue 2 last season, the almost century-old club had been abandoned by its owner, the Chinese real estate group Nenking, in great financial difficulty. In July, a project led by Romain Peugeot, great-grandson of the club’s founder, was born to try to keep the club in Ligue 2, but this project didn’t convince the executive committee of the FFF and they were relegated to the 3rd division. All players from last season left the team, and they have to make the team two weeks before the start of the new season. That is why they played only 2 rounds (because the team was in complete reconstruction) and easily lost to Red Star (2-0) and newly promoted GOAL FC (0-3). Coach Oswald Tanchot has additional problems today. Due to the red card in the last round, main defender Dacosta (2/0) is suspended, while Dosso (1/0), Vitelli (1/0), Rangon (1/0), Drammeh, Faraj and Mauricio are injured.

Epinal is a newly promoted team, that is still winless after 4 rounds (0-2-2) but has a difficult schedule, playing against Red Star, Nancy, Cholet, and GOAL FC. They took a goalless draw against GOAL FC, who crashed Sochaux away 0-3, and I think that this is their chance to grab the first victory.
