Pity I didn't see the 2 high scoring games so I could make a comparison with this one. I've said it many times before at these games but wow they are so much bigger than we are!!!
Basically they looked like blokes playing against kids and it looked like that times when strength won the battles. But apary from that LPool were pretty well organised and looked as though they were very keen to make sure we didn't score 6 against them.
Overall LPool will go home wondering how the hell they didnt win the game. They were the better side and created alot more dangerous situations than we did but the one time they got the ball in the net it was ruled offside. ( looked an iffy decision to me) We had one great chance but Touazi shot over on the stretch.
Their goal was a great cross and header but our left back Wilson maybe should have done better to stop the cross. Our equaliser was a beauty mostly created by Poveda who played a super pass to the overlapping full back ( Wilson) who crossed for Matondo to tap in.
No great performances tonight apart maybe from Lattibeaudierre. Very good at the back alongside Ogbeta who I think might have been playing his first EDS game. Touazi hardly involved, touch pretty poor when the ball was fired into him. Gomes looked decent without being special
Plenty of playing the ball out from the back as LPool pressed hard and we mostly survived and did it ok but there were some scary moments.
