Quevilly Rouen vs Auxerre
Quevilly – Auxerre
Quevilly started 2018 with 2 consecutive wins on the road and many of us expected this good shape to continue. But since then they won a single time, also on the road but lost 6 times and hopes for a direct salvation from relegation almost gone. They have only 22 points, 6 less than Nancy the team above them and 8 points till a salvation spot. Was a long discussion about what bad atmosphere create in the squad Duhamel ( their ex-striker) and everybody was happy after he left in the winter in Italy. Also this leaving corroborated with those 2 wins in a row strengthened this idea; but now we see that idea was a bad one – only something like a water balloon. The real true is they are a poor team and will be difficult for them to stay up in Ligue2. Now in the French press appeared the info that the coach DaCosta will be replaced soon but the club denied, but there's no smoke without fire. So, situation in the club is not at the best for sure. For this game 2 important players Louis + Lefort are suspended. Also main coach DaCosta and his adjunct are suspended.
Auxerre is on fire, no doubt. They took their 4th away win in the postponed game versus Sochaux. Was a clear 4-0 for Auxerre, a win without any discussion. They completely outplayed a good team as Sochaux and as I wrote few rounds ago if they will be able to keep this rhythm then at the end of the season we can assist at a big surprise taking in consideration their situation at the end of first part of the season. 6 wins 3 draws and a single defeat in first 10 games played in 2018 and Auxerre is second in table in 2018, one pint behind Reims. Bad news for them Aye suffered a nasty injury vs Sochaux and will miss a long period of time. In rest, same squad for Correa as in previous game.
Interesting odds for an away win. Maybe fatigue is the main reason but I thing Auxerre is more than capable to snatch another win. So Auxerre is my choice gl
