If you haven’t visited Caen’s website, immediately drop what you’re doing and do so now. Their match preview for this weekend’s game is so good that I absolutely cannot beat it.
Some might think that the beast that will enter the Caen arena on Saturday evening has lost its presence, and that other chimeras now reign in the jungle of French football, starting with the Parisian ogre, who leaves its victims barely alive in order to keep a little room in his stomach so that it can swallow bigger prey the following week.
Lyon, however, remains cloaked by an aura and a history that no one dares to challenge: carrying an attack that their feline dispositions render graceful, their mere presence offering the certainty of a rare spectacle, while giving rise to the desire for an exploit.
Amazing, amirite??? I haven’t seen so many scary hunting references since I went on a safari in South Africa, when guides took me and my friend on a terrifying game drive in the middle of the night and thought it would be hilarious to take us close to feasting hyenas. Nope, never again.
