The return to Ligue 2 of Le Mans is not easy and even resembles an obstacle course. Indeed, the Sarthois are only 18th in the ranking, with 21 points, and have a length of delay on the first non-relegation. More worrying, they remain on 4 defeats in the last 5 days against Auxerre (0-1), Valenciennes (1-0), Nancy (1-1), Lorient (4-2) and Sochaux (1-0) the last week.
Rodez, for his part, also entered Ligue 2 last summer. But the club is doing better than its opponent of the day in this championship since it is in 14th place in the ranking with 6 more units on the clock. Since their last defeat against Châteauroux in early January, the Aveyronnais have tightened their bolts. After drawing a draw against Paris FC (0-0) and Valenciennes (1-1), they went on to win in Orléans (1-2) and shared the points again, with Nancy this time last week (1-1).
