• Because “there is a very favorable dynamic for the home team” according to Thomas Lombard, General Manager of Stade Français
“Of course, more than ever! Firstly because they have given themselves the means to beat Wales and by beating Wales today anything is possible. We know that often in this kind of setup there is a dynamic which is very favorable for the home team and who play the win. Scotland are not playing for a final victory in the tournament so yes I think that is something widely conceivable, ” The general manager of Stade Français explained to us.
“CWhat I like about this team is the collective organization, which they are able to do in a high pressure environment as was the case in the last quarter of an hour against Wales. Obviously it does not depend only on us but we have the means to beat this Scottish team with the manner and especially with the gap in the score which will allow us to hope “, he concluded.
• Because “they have the carelessness which allows them to sublimate themselves” for Dimitri Yachvili, Francetv sport consultant
“Yes I think they are able to do it when you see the physiognomy of last Saturday’s game you realize that this team is capable of anything, both to be in difficulty and to suffer for a large part of the match as well as to sublimate during the last ten minutes. They have the carefree, a little fiery spirit of youth which allows them to sublimate themselves without showing too much pressure so I think that yes they are able to do it. the strengths and the profile of players to do so “, told us the former French international.
• Because “they have demonstrated their offensive potential“, according to Vincent Clerc, Francetv sport consultant
“I think they can win it (tournament) because it’s about scoring a lot of points and they have shown their attacking potential with an ability to score a lot of tries and hold the ball, they really have that strength there. They also had the defensive strength, even if it was the fault in the last game, but it was something that was a strong point so I tell myself that they can fix it “, the former winger said.
“If they manage to take the game from the right end by not thinking directly of the points gap but by first structuring their match and then after doing calculations on the end to perhaps no longer attempt the penalties and having a strategy of really scoring points is possible. Especially since if Scotland are a little behind in the score, they do not play anything in the tournament, so they can maybe let go, consciously or not. , which can allow the French team to go for a victory in the tournament. I’m optimistic I will say that there is a 60% chance that they will win this tournament “, he asserted.

“I really feel a positive dynamic that is installed, a dynamic of confidence. We can see that there was never really any panic even if the game could get away from us against Wales we must not be fooled, but what is certain is that the players’ ability to come back in the last ten minutes and do whatever it takes to turn the situation around completely shows that there is a great deal of mental toughness in addition to character and character. rugby quality “, Laurent Travers explained to us.
“When there is a dynamic like that that sets in the group feels carried by a momentum and I think that this momentum will allow us to do what it takes for the team to emerge victorious with more than twenty points. ‘gap. I am more than confident, I believe in it 90% “, he announced.
