Sochaux vs Auxerre (By: Alcuni)
Sochaux – Auxerre
Sochaux was 5 mis close to an important away win at AC Ajaccio, but they failed, osing in the end 2-3 and this in positive circumstances for them having one man extra since 20 mins. They missed here a great opportunity to stay close to promotion battle, being so close to beat another contender after a nice “remontada” versus LeHavre (remember they were 0-2 down at some point in game having an incredible 2nd half, scoring twice). So, two good games lately despite having a long injuries layers list. They had 4 last game with plenty of auction in its, scoring 9 times but also conceding 9 goals. Still without Bergdich plus Prevot, Pendant, Martin, Kalulu, Ristl and Sao all injured while Gibaud is with the reserve team.
With no defeat in 2018, with 5 wins and 3 draws, Auxerre is trying to recover the false steps they had in first half of the season and to keep close to the top spots and why no to achieve in the end and incredible and impossible, at one point in the season, promotion. OK there are a lot to do but with a courageous coach Pablo Correa and avoiding injuries they confronted in first part of the season all are possible. And this keeping in mind that in last 11 rounds Auxerre and an affordable schedule meeting only few direct promotion contenders: Reims, AC Ajaccio and Brest. So with 25-27 points in these rounds I think is possible to see Auxerre in top 3 taking in consideration the other teams involved in the promotion battle will have plenty of games each another and will split points. Difficult of course but not quit impossible now given the great shape and football Auxerre shown lately. Arcus is suspended for this trip while Barreto is back in the squad.
Auxerre should be able to take advantage of missing from home team and to continue their good run. Back Auxerre AH0+. gl
