Montpellier seemed to play better with 10 players and a numerical disadvantage were with Savanier’s goal in 87 minute saved the game and won a point against newly promoted Troyes away. Compared to the previous games, they looked tired, without freshness and aggressive solutions. The problem in the center of the defense is important for the coach Dall’Oglio who doesn’t have proper solutions, because out of the squad are Thuler (6/0 suspended), Sakho (4/0), Tamas, and Oyongo.
After the heavy defeat by Nice (4:0), coach Petkovic told the press that with hard work results will come, and certain that was confirmed last Saturday in a victory away against St Etienne, which was the first victory after 6 rounds. From the beginning, things went well for the “Girondins” and found the mental reserves to answer to the equalizing goal in the 73rd minute and score a winning goal in the 80th minute. On the injury list are Koscielny (5/0), Sissokho (4/0), Baysse, Maja, Elis, and most of them are defenders.
Montpellier shows signs of fatigue, and with the given problem in defense solutions, I think that Bordeaux is able to found the net and expect an interesting match with goals on both sides.
