France Ligue 2 – Auxerre v Le Havre Preview (23/9/16)

aja-hacAuxerre preview

  • Won just one match all season and failed to score in 6 of their 8 contests.
  • Now over 450 minutes since they last scored a goal and the offense is in terrible shape.
  • Having to rely on defence and their top quality goalkeeper Zacharie Boucher to keep them above the relegation zone.
  • Few injuries for coach Viorel Moldovan to worry about and he has asked fans to be ‘patient’ and to ‘give him time’ to turn things around.

Le Havre preview

  • The promotion favourites have failed to win any of their last six games and are languishing in midtable.
  • Some pressure on manager Bob Bradley because his team aren’t performing as well as they should be.
  • No injuries or suspensions to deal with and a full squad, which is one of the best in the entire ligue is in very healthy condition.
  • It’s a mystery why HAC are out of form but something isn’t quite clicking with the team right now.

Conclusion & betting analysis

  • Both teams are in a bit of a funk and lacking confidence.
  • At least Le Havre are scoring goals and just one might be enough to see them to victory here.
  • The visitors just need to find a way to get an ugly win which would get them back on track. Auxerre don’t threaten much, so this could be the chance.
  • HAC have much the better quality so it’s understandable why they are slight favourites on a DNB handicap.
  • But they can’t be trusted at the moment and are a fairly easy swerve.
  • Overall I’m not expecting a classic and I see a low scoring away win. A 0-0 draw couldn’t be ruled out either.

Prediction: 0-1

Recommended bet: None
