Le Havre did very well last Saturday afternoon to get a three-pointer away from home against Metz with a narrow 1:0 result. The only goal was scored back in the 62nd minute via Ferhat.
Overall, the game itself wasn’t that interesting with Metz having the initiative and the ball possession, however without creating much. Neither Le Havre did. It could have been a different score, but only in case Metz appeared far more concrete and improved in the attack.
This was a third consecutive match without defeat for Le Havre (two victories on the road and a draw against Troyes at home), as the side now stands at fifth position with a 4-4-1 record five points behind leaders from Metz. They should have no fresh and big injury worries.
Beziers, on the other side, were set as quite an underdog last Tuesday evening when the team hosted Lens, but managed to stay however to a goalless draw taking a precious point against far more quality opponent.
It was obvious that Lens is the one to have more quality since the visiting side had much more of the ball possession and chances created – but weren’t that great in front of opponent’s goal not being able to seal either of the chances into a goal. As for Beziers, they are now in a run of two consecutive draws, both at home, but also without a victory in last six Ligue 2 rounds with just two goals scored within those six.
They are now just above the relegation zone with eight points earned which is just a point more than playoff placed Auxerre. Also, the team should have no important injury worries.
Le Havre is a side that aims promotion this season and is finally looking quite decent. Especially at the back as they are one of the strongest defensive lineups. I can’t see much of the space for Beziers to surprise, while they shouldn’t be able to stay competitive for all ninety minutes here.
