France Ligue 2 – Tours v Bourg-en-Bresse Preview (20/9/16)

tfc-bpTours preview

  • Won just a single game so far this season.
  • Home fans becoming a little restless after some poor performance at Le STade Vallee du Cher.
  • The defence is nowhere near as strong as it was last season under tactical coach Marco Simeone.
  • New man Fabien Mercadal has deliver a more entertaining style, but result wise he hasn’t been as effective.
  • The defence is missing three usual starters tonight, with Gradit, Louvion & Miguel all ruled out.

Bourg-en-Bresse preview

  • On an upward trend. Unbeaten in three matches and won for the first time on Friday night against Le Havre (2-1).
  • The exact same squad is retained again and they have no new injuries or suspensions to worry about.
  • Seem to have regained the attacking mojo which they had last season. Bourg have now scored in their last five consecutive games.

Conclusion & betting analysis

  • This should be a good game between a couple of teams who have been quite attack minded recently.
  • Neither defence can be trusted and clean sheets have been few and far between for both this season.
  • Overs look like the obvious play here and surprisingly over 2.25 can be obtained @ around the 1.80 mark.
  • Difficult to refuse this bet when considering all aspects.
  • Overall result is difficult to predict because it will likely be an end to end game. It’s a question of who takes their chances best.
  • Tours are -0.25 favourites, but I would personally side with the visitors due to their recent improvement.

Prediction: 2-2

Recommended bet 1 unit: Over 2.25 goals @ 1.83
