Following nearly a month’s break from the championship, our Dragonnes will be able to fight again. The next opponents to be hosted this weekend are the players from Rueil Athletic Club. As a reminder, we are at the top of our pool with 19 points (7 games played, 6 wins and one loss). But we are one game ahead of other teams. We will succeed in our players for this recovery.
“A crucial and very important match this weekend after the disappointment against Dijon. We parted with a defeat and then 3 weeks of international break with players in their respective national teams, therefore training with a reduced or even very reduced workforce. A team facing us which, on the contrary, ends with its first victory, therefore reversed dynamics I expect a lot of intensity, rigor and precision in the behaviors expected of Metz players because the opponent of the day has very interesting weapons and which can pose significant problems for us… We are starting a new cycle after these 3 months of brand prize and this match will be very useful for us and will give us some answers as to the continuity of the work carried out with the players concerning the continuation of their career in the short and medium term.
A good meeting to test the team’s ability to bounce back against an opponent who will be unashamed and combative like Parisian clubs in general. – Nina KANTÔcoach of the N1 F.
