OL want to climb back up to the heights in the league table… It all starts with a victory against Sochaux on Saturday…

Truth will come from the pitch. The pitch does indeed brings the best answers or unfortunately cruel disappointment. OL must now obtain results the pitch in order to silence the questions, critics, the media circus... OL are engaged on a long road with handicaps in the league, and with a very important encounter in the Champions League next Tuesday. A long road in France which would appear to have some more or less thorny obstacles.

There will indeed some sharp like Rennes, PSG ... before Toulouse, OM ... But, are there any easy teams for the seven-time champions of France? Whatever ... If this OL side wants to avoid falling straight into the ditch with all the consequences that could result, he has no choice. Full steam ahead...

Sochaux must understand immediately that OL will leave them no chance for 90 minutes. All this without Delgado, Toulalan, Cissokho, Makoun or Ederson, all of whom are out injured. It will be done with a team, naturally, changed in comparison to the one that started against PSG. It will be done with therefore with freshness. It will be done with, or without, fatigue in the legs of the marathon runners of Wednesday night.

Without underestimating the Sochaux side, Cris and his team-mates will be relying primarily on their qualities, their desire. They know all about the experienced Bréchet, Faty, Sauget ... or the youngsters in the side. They know the current form of the team coached by Francis Gillot, form which has seen them take O points on the road, but with an explosive attack at home.

The information about this game is as extremely simple as the expectations. This game resembles the first step in a new adventure knowing that all escape paths have virtually all already been used. So, full steam ahead...
