Expert analysis AJ Auxerre
AJ Auxerre took six of their 15 points at the end of August thanks to a 2-1 away win over the 14th-ranked HSC Montpellier and a 1-0 home win over the fourth-bottom Racing Strasbourg. However, that short run ended on 31 August with a 1-2 at their upcoming opponents Olympique Lyonnaise.
Retrospectively, it marked the first of 13 defeats for the side from Burgundy in 17 appearances in France’s Ligue 1. Here, the only win arrived on 30 October on the debut of the coach Christophe Pélissier, with AJA defeating at home the third-bottom AC Ajaccio 1-0. Furthermore, they drew 1:1 at home against the 15th-placed Stade Brest plus the seventh-ranked OGC Nice, and at the beginning of November at the fifth-last-placed ES Troyes.
Then, AJ Auxerre went into the break with a 0-5 away debacle against the leaders Paris Saint-Germain. The negative trend continued after the World Cup. Because: The penultimate in the Ligue 1 table initially lost six times. This team, which returned to the top-flight after ten years, first saw defeats at home against the third-placed AS Monaco (2-3) plus against the eleventh-ranked Toulouse (0-5), and in between at the 13th-placed Nantes (0-1).
Next, there were away defeats against the fourth-placed RC Lens (0-1) plus in Monaco (2-3) and in between one against HSC Montpellier (0-2). This streak snapped on 5 February with a goalless home draw against the tenth-placed Stade Reims. But another setback followed on Sunday with a 1-1 at the bottom-side Angers SCO.
Expert analysis Olympique Lyon
On the same day, Olympique Lyonnaise celebrated a 2-1 home win against RC Lens. This constituted the third victory in four league matches for Laurent Blanc’s team. The exception, a goalless draw at home to Stade Brest, occurred between a 2-0 in Ajaccio and a 3-1 in Troyes. Thus, the Gones accomplished a turnaround after three winless appearances in France’s Ligue 1.
Because: After a 4-2 in Brest on 28 December, Olympique Lyon initially took only one point in three appearances. Here, they recorded a 0-1 home defeat against the twelfth-placed Clermont Foot, a 0-0 in Nantes and a 1-2 in front of their home crowd against Racing Strasbourg.
