Auxerre vs AC Ajaccio (By: Alcuni)
Auxerre - AC Ajaccio
Auxerre stopped they bad series of 4 consecutive defeats wining at Chateauroux and stopped also Chateauroux dreams to catch a play-off spot and why not a promotion. Were they 9th consecutive overs, Auxerre being one of the most offensive team in Ligue 2. Interesting in last 4 games they met promotion / or relegation threatened teams and shown some mercy for those team’s needs. But suddenly they won versus another promotion chaser which was a bit strange. True is, Chateauroux scored twice goals at 1-1, but both disallowed for offside positions. Now another game against a team who need all points to conserve 3rd position so interesting to see how they will cope with the situation. Once again Tacalfred got an injury and along Philippoteaux, Ba and Yatarra will miss.
Ajaccio lost 0-2 away at LeHavre in previous round and taking their 2nd defeats in last 3 games their hopes for a direct promotion collapsed now. Nimes need 3 points in last 2 games in order not to be overpassed by Ajaccio and perhaps this will happen in this round. So Ajaccio need a point in last 2 round in order to assure the 3rd spot (they have +6 goals compared with Brest, being difficult to believe Brest can recover this difference). Here can be difficult to collect point(s) but for sure in last game versus Niort will be more facile. Lejeune saw red card at LeHavre and will miss here.
Is well know that Ajaccio didn’t excelled on the road losing so many games for a promotion contender. But here they must do their job and collect points in front of a team handicapped by some good players. I think a point will be enough for them to finish 3rd and to have some advantage at the play-off phase. So back the draw, which is ok also for Auxerre keeping in mind their important absences. gl
