Nothing to report on the side of the weather, this Tuesday. On February 13, this Nancy – Concarneau had lasted 45 minutes, before being canceled because of the fog which had fallen on the Marcel-Picot stadium. The Concarnois led 1-0 at half-time, on a goal scored by Boutrah with the help of the fog precisely. But this Tuesday evening, the meeting will start well at 0-0, in the first minute of play. “A month and a half ago, it was not the same context” slips Benoît Pedretti, “Today we have more lived with the group. The only lesson that we can really learn from February 13 is that we cannot afford the slightest relaxation with the quality of the players opposite. We will have to be very focused and do even better things with the ball.
The fog may have prevented ASNL from conceding their first defeat since the change of coach, but Nancy’s invincibility with Benoît Pedretti on the bench ended up falling anyway, during the last match, March 17 against Châteauroux in Picot (0-1). A match lost without having been unworthy, rather against the run of the game, but that’s only one point out of six for Nancy over the last two days, also counting the draw at Cholet (1-1).
For Nancy, just above the red zone with two games behind, there is a clear opportunity to put in a good operation, in the race for maintenance, because their direct opponents did not win Friday. .
Change in the middle
ASNL, for its part, did not play on Friday. She saw her trip to Saint-Brieuc postponed due to the selections for the France U20 team of Lamine Cissé and Gwilhem Tayot, but the two young internationals, released by the tricolor staff, will be there this Tuesday against Concarneau. Benoît Pedretti, on the other hand, will always be deprived of Diafra Sakho (back) but also of midfielder Lucas Deaux, package for a muscular problem. This should lead to Mayoro Ndoye’s return to the “starting XI”. Playmaker Baptiste Mouazan should also find a starting place.
