Affirmation is undoubtedly the most complex thing in high-level sport. after show The scalp of the Great Toulouse Stadium Last Saturday in Michelin (16-13), ASM Clermont Auvergne continues this weekend with another top 14 heavyweight: Racing 92 at La Défense Arena in Nanterre.
The game is at stake in the race for the top six places, and thus to qualify for the finals. Accounting, Overnights is not far from it (seventh by two points behind Low). The inhabitants of Ile-de-France are sailing in murky waters, tenth at a distance of nine lengths beyond the Lyon River. Suffice it to say that defeat on this fifteenth day will put the sky and white on the battlefield and plunge them into a little crisis.
Wounded animal, I don’t know if this is the best time to take it – Etienne Fourcade
The 92nd race hasn’t moved forward for two months. Laurent Travers’ men remained in four straight league defeats (Brave, Bordeaux, Custer and Lyon). With an enchanted arc in the middle of this black streak: Big hit Northampton (45-14) in the Champions Cup on December 10th.
For prostitute Etienne Fourcade, ASM could take a break in the arrangement with their evening host in case they win, “A wounded beast, I don’t know if this is the best time to take it. Either way, we have to play it. Either way, we’re going to go there to win. They’re off the hook at the moment, but could go back to last year’s Castres image, which He had a good end to the season. If we’re going to score at home and win there, they’ll be even more difficult than now, so it’s up to us to put them in difficulty.”
They really want to make up for themselves, it will be a big trip – Elder Tiberjian
The same story for full-back Sheikh Tiberjian, who expects a strong match against the Parisians under pressure, “It’s still a great racing team anyway. They’re in a period where they haven’t necessarily won, but we’ve been through that period too, that doesn’t mean they lack confidence. They lost last week, but they still have a lot of confidence. The game. Expect a trip. Like all the teams that go to Racing in the Defense Arena. Big game with a lot of intensity. There, they’re not very far, so they’re really keen to make up for themselves, plus, at home. We’re expecting a big ride, far from easy.”
2000 square meter
The shock of the fifteenth day out of the top fourteen will occur in a necessarily special context. The arena that is covered – and therefore classified in the theater category – is a 2,000-person scale that must come forward on a Saturday evening. It might be a hollow carousel in an arena that seats 30,000. “It’s not because they have 2,000 fans who will play less,” Neurologist Etienne Fourcade, “I think the most important thing is that we try to be as consistent for the 80 minutes as we were able to do against Toulouse. I think if we manage to keep our 80 minutes consistent, we’ll really be a good thing.”
Vahamahina waiver, Bara on the bench
To kick off the encounter, Juno Gibbs decided to bring Argentina international Thomas Lavanini back from five matches from suspension, after a brutal match against Ireland. On the other hand, the New Zealand technical will have to dispense with Sebastian Vahamhaina, who injured his thigh Thursday during recent training.
ASM will also have to dispense with captain Arthur Etoria, but also Jacobus van Tonder, who is injured in the back, not to mention the injuries of Bisele Yato or Alexander Fischer. The starting point consists of Sebastian Pizzi and Camille Lopez (who just committed to baiyun). Morgan Barra will be on the substitute bench.
The full meeting (9:05pm) will take place with Julien Urey’s comments on France Bleu Pays d’Auvergne.
