Auxerre Preview – Can Furlan’s boys end losing streak?

Auxerre were promoted from Ligue 2 via the play-offs last term. They finished the regular season in third spot, a point behind second-place Ajaccio. In the play-offs, they beat Sochaux and Saint-Etienne to secure promotion to the top tier.

Jean-Marc Furlan’s boys have made a steady start to life in Ligue 1, winning two, drawing one and losing four. They could certainly do with a positive result having lost three on the bounce since back-to-back wins over Montpellier and Strasbourg.

Our betting prediction:
Both teams to score

(odds taken 1522 GMT, Thursday 15 September)

Auxerre’s defeat to Marseille in their last fixture at the Stade de l’Abbe-Deschamps was their first home reverse of the campaign. Can the Burgundy club bounce back with a positive result in front of their home fans on Friday?

Lorient Preview – Will Les Merlus move to the summit?

Lorient only just survived relegation last season, finishing just four points above 18th in 16th place. They mustered up just eight Ligue 1 wins and were beaten 28 times. They also scored just 35 goals.

Lorient have been the surprise package in Ligue 1 so far this season, winning five of their opening seven matches. Regis Le Bris’ troops are fourth on 16 points, three points behind joint leaders Paris Saint-Germain and Marseille.
