“All games are important“could we hear at the Gandonnières training center in Laval this week. not all teams are at 100% capacity yet.
Opposed to Annecy on this weekend of August 15, like last year in National (1-0 defeat), the Tango hope to bring back a little something from one of the longest trips offered to them this season 2022-2023 . Coach Olivier Frapolli expects strong opposition, against a team still looking for their first victory. “It is despite everything a team, a bit like us, on the dynamics of the last season. In his production, with a lot of intensity. They are among the teams that run the most in the division” observes the technician.
Maintain the good dynamic outside
A revanchist team, injured after two first days to lose (2-1 against Niort; 1-0 against Metz). This meeting seems to take on a special character since the two teams are discovering Ligue 2. Midfielder Jordan Adéoti tempers despite everything. “When you lose against Guingamp, you don’t say to yourself that you lost against a team that is playing uphill, and that suddenly it doesn’t matter. We have to try to take points against our direct competitors, that’s true. For having already experienced it in this championship, when you start at the bottom of the standings, even for a big team that is supposed to play the climb sometimes, it’s difficult to go up the slope“.
Especially since the winter break, we repeat, will arrive in November because of the World Cup in Qatar. We must therefore take points as quickly as possible, according to Yohan Tavares, central defender. “The content is important, but you also have to know how to adapt to the context, the team, the opponent. It is true that there were good things against Guingamp. It is not the fact of having taken zero points that will make us say that we must put everything in the trash“.
This season, the Tango will still want to show that they are formidable outside. Only three defeats in National last season, off their bases. This week the team analyzed how the team block is positioned in the defensive or offensive phase. Against Guingamp, in the second period, the Laval residents suffered too much and left the ball to their opponents for too long. What they intend not to repeat this Saturday evening in Annecy.
