Not good news for everyone
This announcement, at six o'clock of the closing of the composition of the teams has, in any case, disconcerted more than one. In principle, when a match is postponed, the players of both teams get the score of five out of ten. Even the substitutes and the wounded. Which is not good news in the absolute, even if RMC Sport explained to you Thursday, at the price of very advanced strategies and calculations that we will not explain to you here, how to try to limit the case.
So many of them have made their arrangements in the past 48 hours by remaking their team speed or by buying other players (for the paid version of the game). Others were happy to meet an opponent whose majority of players were deprived of lawn. This is the case for most of the big teams of the championship (Paris, Lyon, Monaco or Marseille). On paper, the owners of players Rennes, Dijonnais, Guingampais, Amiens, Lille or Remy left therefore advantaged.
