Postponed game from Round 28th due to meteorological conditions.
Sochaux is not doing great lately, losing 3 out of last 4 games played in Championship. They have plenty problems with injured players also some extra-football ones. They alternated good results at home with bad ones and same for the games played on the road. Now, on their own pitch, they won last 3 ones and keeping in mind what I wrote above, statistically a bad result should come in front of their fans. Interesting they are the single team who didnot drew a game in front of their fans. At home, their game is one offensive the coach brought at the start of this season changing completely the approach comparing with what Socahux played under Cartier. In last apparition, 2 days ago, they made a courageous game versus Paris FC, but despite a slight domination, they lost 0-2, conceding twice following some corner kick. Pity for them, long injury list will make them to suffer perhaps till the end of the season; Still without main GK Prevot, Martin, Kalulu, Ristl and Sao all Gibaud. For this game they recovered only Pendant.
Auxerre lost first time after a 8 games in 2018, 1-2 versus inconstant Brest. Was a game in which Brest was the better team, beside those two goals having another 2 posts and dominating the game overall. Auxerre was surprised by this Brest who lost in previous round versus rock bottom Tours 1-3 at home. And perhaps they treated the game with some easy and hence this poor result. Maybe was better that this defeat came now, Auxerre being somehow obliged not to lose here. I still hope and believe they will climb in the table near to the promotion play-off spot and in a tense final of the season, why not to catch this 3rd spot. Actually they will play a single game versus team who will be involved in the 3rd spot battle - Ajaccio having one of the easiest schedule till the end (most of the games 5 out of last 9) being versus bottom 5 teams. So depends only on them to achieve something unachievable at the end of 2017. On the road in 2018 3 wins in a row last one versus Lorient. No important missing here for Correa’s squad.
Statistic, Auxerre is having good time here at Sochaux, being undefeated in last 9 trips (4 wins and 5 draws). Overall they should be in a good momentum, had one day extra for recovery ( playing Friday night), almost complete squad. So all the ingredients for a positive result. So back Auxerre to win here but covering with AH0+.gl
