Créteil (9th) and the Red Star (7th but with 3 games late) are clearly losing ground in recent weeks in the league.
The Red Star, author of a good career in the Coupe de France, has not yet won in 2021 in the National.
As for Créteil, still looking for a new coach, he has won only one of his last six games.
To hope to stay in the race, at least at the jump-offs (3rd place), the two teams must therefore win.
The pass of three for the Audoniens?
The Red Star and Créteil have faced each other twice this season.
The Red Star currently leads 2-0.
He won 1-0 (Durand's goal) in the first leg on October 9 at Bauer, then on February 16 in the 8th round of the Coupe de France.
The Red Star had eliminated Créteil (2-1 goals from Ba and Durand against a goal from Pancrate) on his lawn at Duvauchelle.
Créteil is deprived of Pardal, Mokdad and Belkhouche.
The Red Star continues its marathon
The euphoria, born of the feat against Lens (3-2) quickly subsided.
Tuesday against Sète (1-1), the Red Star quickly found the reality of a championship where he has not won for six games now (4 N, 2 D).
“We put in the ingredients, courage, will and mind, to get back to the score but we narrowly missed in front of goal despite 7 or 8 chances.
The players leave frustrated because there was room to win ", recognizes Vincent Bordot who has established the" championship as a priority ".
But before the 8th finals of the Coupe de France against Lyon scheduled for Thursday April 7 at 7 p.m. in Bauer, the Red Star, who still has three games late, will have to continue with 5 games in 14 days: Orléans (March 19) , Laval (March 23), Avranches (March 27) Villefranche (March 30) and Saint-Brieuc (April 2).
Still an interim staff in Créteil
On February 24, the end of the collaboration between Richard Déziré and Créteil was recorded after barely two short months.
Since then, Créteil has played three games under the guidance of former assistant Manuel Ramos.
After a victory against Annecy (4-1), the USCL remains on two losses in Quevilly (1-0) and Saint-Brieuc (2-1).
The interim staff will still be present against the Red Star.
The leaders have increased the number of talks for 15 days.
A new coach should, thus, be appointed next week, except to imagine Manuel Ramos ending the season with the reinforcement of a figurehead.
Richard Déziré said a little more about the reasons for his departure.
He had let us understand that this ephemeral experience was "a casting error" on both sides.
According to our information, differences in the daily functioning had appeared between the demanding coach in the five climbs, his leaders and his group In the columns of Paris-Normandy, Déziré confirmed this situation.
“I said I wouldn't revolutionize much.
But everything concerning the work aspect related to the field, it was non-negotiable in my eyes.
My departure was a great relief.
It's really a club that was not made for me, and vice versa.
