Auxerre vs Brest (By: Alcuni)
Auxerre – Brest
Auxerre didn’t play last round, their game versus Sochaux, on the road, being postponed on 13rd March, due the bad weather (snow). So nothing changed in terms of news. 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 game while Barreto is back in the squad. For them will follow a hard week with 2 trips.
Brest once again disappointing their fans, losing once again at home this time versus rock bottom Tours. Instead, to keep close to the teams involved in the promotion battle, they are now 4 points behind 3rd spot. Lucky for them other teams from upper part of the table lost this round (a round with a single draw): Paris FC, AC Ajaccio and LeHavre Monday night. So still a tight promotion battle and still Brest is in it. But for sure their morale is not at high level and can’t be otherwise after you are losing against poorest team in ligue2. I remember last year Brest was in pole position in this period but with a terrible end of the season lost the promotion. Now the situation is changed but who knows maybe the fate will be on their side in the end. Bernard and Castelleto are injured for this trip.
I expect Auxerre to continue their good run and to take a new home win against inconsistent Brest. Auxerre – 0.25 @ 2.04 is my choice. gl
