Gameday 4 Saturday Review: Can TFC and Caen stay atop?

So far this season, there has been more than enough suprisese this season. Toulouse is leading the table. Caen, last year Ligue 2 Champions, are right behind in second place. While Toulouse has had an easy road to an undefeated season so far, Caen’s has paved an impressive road, with wins against Lyon and Marseille. 

But will these teams continue their trends today? Here is a preview of today’s games. 


AC Arles Avignon  
 / 
  Stade Rennais FC

While most of the top teams haven’t played exactly how most people expected, Rennes (who many experts have finishing in the third place) have been able to stay near the top of the table. But while Rennes is currently undefeated, they finished last week with a lackluster performance against ASSE.

 Still, they will be taking on what can easily be considered the worse team in Ligue 1 right now. But even being considered the “worse” team, Arles-Avignon have been able to keep all of their losses within one goal.

 Rennes doesn’t have to worry about some overwhelming home advantage from Arles-Avignon, as their stadium only holds a little over 17,000, they do have to worry about being complacent against an inferior opponent. Rennes defenders need to keep their eyes on Ivorian Franck Dja Djedje, who already has two goals this season. As for Rennes, we will see if World Cup star Asamoah Gyan will finally net his first goal of the season. In addition, we will also see if Victor Montano (who transferred from Montpellier this season) will be able to continue his impressive play on this pitch.

 This should be an easy win for Rennes, but crazier things can happen.

Arles-Avignon: Planté; Abenzoar, Mejia, Laurenti, J-A. Fanchone; Ayasse, Piocelle (c); F. Dja Djédjé, Meriem, De. N’Diaye; Kermorgant  

Rennes: Douchez; Danzé, Fanni, K. Mangane (c), Théophile-Catherine; M’Vila, J. Leroy, S. Dalmat; Montaño, Gyan, Brahimi 

FUCK! Yes, that is the word I am using. I just had all the previews done, BUT WORDPRESS JUST DELETED THEM ALL THEN AUTOSAVED!!! Therefore, I am not going to spend another hour doing reviews. But I will had something up later today. I hate WordPress right now!!!!!!
