Ligue 1 – Auxerre at home to Brest
Brest currently sit in nineteenth place as they travel to sixteenth placed Auxerre.
Auxerre’s campaign so far has seen them accrue seven points this season
Auxerre come to this fixture on the back of a 1-3 home loss against FC Lorient at Stade de l’Abbe-Deschamps.
Also, with an unfortunate Auxerre that has not managed to win in their last League so far, Jean-Marc Furlan’s men form is worryingly poor. Auxerre should solve their trend if they don’t want to occupy the lasts places in the League Table. Their position is sixteenth in the League and they have seven points, that is, 2W, 5L and 1D having won two games, drawn one game, and lost five meetings.
Auxerre have won one game, drawn one game, and lost two meetings of their four League matches at home this season.
A win in this fixture, would take Auxerre’s points from 7 to 10, so far this season.
Jean-Marc Furlan will be forced to make changes to the plans for his squad, as injury or illness has depleted him of four of his Auxerre players.
Struggling Brest go to Stade de l’Abbe-Deschamps on Sunday and hope for a positive result
Brest suffered a home loss to AC Ajaccio in their last outing, they will doubtless be keen get a positive outcome in this fixture.
Also, Michel Der Zakarian may ponder the reasons why his Brest team are struggling at the bottom of the table this season. But four defeats out of the last five meetings, should be all the analysis that he really needs. They currently stand nineteenth in the League, with five points for a total of 1 wins, 5 losses and 2 draws having won one game, drawn two fixtures, and lost five games.
Playing away from home, Brest have won one game and lost three matches.
Victory for Brest would take their points tally to 8 so far this season.
Brest are no strangers this season to illness and injury and Michel Der Zakarian is concerned that Sunday’s fixture could see him without three of his key players
