Auxerre vs Beziers
France – Ligue 2
Date: Friday 19th October 2018
Kick off at 19:00 UK/ 20:00 CET
Venue: Stade de l’Abbe-Deschamps (Auxerre).
Auxerre have lost 7 of their opening 10 games and it remains to be seen if the recent international break will have helped the team. They are in 18th place and have 7 points and have lost 4 of their last 5 games with the other match ending in a draw.
Their last home game ended with a 2-1 defeat against Lens and they haven’t won at home since beating Nancy 1-0 over two months ago. Auxerre currently have the worst form in the league.
Beziers have come up from the national league and they have had a positive impact. They are in 13th place and 4 more points than their hosts coming into this game.
The most encouraging news is that they are on a 3 game unbeaten streak and away from home they have the 6th best record in the league where they have won 3 and lost 3. Indeed by that account they actually remain quite unpredictable. But they did win their last away game against Le Havre by 3-2.

Auxerre vs Beziers: Prediction
We think this will be a low scoring game as Auxerre have been working on defence during the break and the coach wants to see his team grind some results and win matches 1-0. The way the team plays or entertains is not important for the club but the results are.
Beziers are the brighter of the two clubs and they will have more of the ball but their naivety in play could come into question if the home side follow their training of the past 10 days. Because of this we will go for a narrow home win.
