Auxerre – Lorient: Preview & Prediction

Auxerre condemned to the feat this Tuesday night! The AJA has been in great difficulty since the start of the season, despite an inaugural victory on the first day. The AJA is relegated to Ligue 1 at the end of last season and still unbeaten after nine official matches! Solid and effective last Friday against Aj Ajaccio (2-0), Mickael Landreau’s men release a disarming serenity, as if the rise in Ligue 1 was obvious. The Auxerrois, in lack of confidence and in search of points, could lock the game and leave as little space as possible to the Hake!

Auxerre and Lorient will only have 4 days of recovery before this new day of championship!
Without success since the first day, Auxerre will seek above all to reassure itself by receiving the leader. Not that we are witnessing a great match at l’Abbé-Deschamps!
With 5 small goals scored, AJA is the 18th L2 attack. Only Tours and Gazélec, with 3 and 4 goals, are doing worse.
0-0 at Gazélec, 1-1 at Laval in the Coupe de la Ligue, 2-0 at Clermont … 3 of Lorient’s 4 moves this season generated less than 2.5 goals.
Lorient has the best defense of L2, tied with Nimes and the HAC (4 goals conceded).

Our Prognosis

Lorient, leader, is the obvious favorite of this meeting but between the defensive solidity of the Merlus and the offensive difficulties of the Auxerrois, a success 1 or 2-0 would hardly be surprising. Our bet would also cover a Lorient counter-performance and a draw (0-0, 1-1)!
