Valenciennes – Auxerre: Preview & Prediction
Did the AJA just launch its season by offering the scalp of the Merlus and putting Mickael Landreau under the first defeat of his young coaching career? After an inaugural victory in the first day against RC Lens, the Auxerrois then experienced a long crossing of the desert, winning no encounters between the beginning of August and mid-September. The series is now over, and a renewed confidence could well allow Auxerre to find results more in line with the ambitions of the club. It starts with a good performance on the lawn of Valenciennes, irregular and always difficult to pin down!
Auxerre has put an end to 7 consecutive games without winning, winning against the undefeated leader, FC Lorient!
VA has already been hooked twice at home, against Clermont (0-0) and Gazélec (1-1).
Last week, Valenciennes welcomed Lens, who had only defeats, and won in the pain with a goal at the end of the game (1-0).
The last five confrontations between the two clubs have resulted in 4 draws and a success in Auxerre.
Last season, VA had shared the points 8 times in 19 games, for 7 wins and 4 losses.
Our Prediction Valenciennes Auxerre
The rather unexpected victory of the Auxerrois against the leader of Lorient has certainly rebooted a whole group. In confidence, Francis Gillot’s men have ample means to get a point on the lawn of a Valenciennes formation far from being a sure value!
