A week after the draw against Cestas (1-1), Lescar meets Crusaders from Bayonne this Saturday (7 p.m.). A fifth consecutive reception, in all competitions, which can allow the Béarnais to achieve their first win of the season in the league.
“After this magnificent career in the Coupe de France, the players moved on to something else. Against Cestas, they showed a lot of energy and desire to move forward. In this matter, it is a real pleasure”, presents Andric Aigon, who knows the areas of improvement for his team. “In our four league games, we led three times. But we haven’t managed to impose ourselves yet. Last weekend we were superior to our opponents, we got more chances than them. But we were not effective, especially in contact with the crossbar. From now on, in order to progress, we must manage to keep the score.
“We’re pretty much on the right track”
In a very homogeneous group C, coach Lescarien knows that everything can go very quickly. “In this Regional 1 championship, everyone is capable of taking points every weekend. Against Bayonne Crusaders (who hung on for a 3-2 win against Arin Luzien), we expect another close game. Our group works well every week, which leads me to say that we are pretty much on the right track. I hope the wheel will turn quickly”.
Even without three elements (defenders Bastien Trinidad, suspended, and Yoan Cardoso, absent, as well as striker Titouan Gabagnou, injured), Andric Aigon remains confident that his players have the capacity to react. Lescar, who are still two games behind, could really come alive if they succeed this Saturday.
But despite two defeats in the first two visits (2-0 at Saint-Paul Sport and 4-1 at Arcachon), the Basques do not look like ideal prey, those who could come close to the top of the table in case of victories. Therefore, we can expect tight game this Saturday at Bernard Masseillou Stadium.
