On Friday evening, Auxerre will host Lorient in the opening match of the eighth matchday of Ligue 1.

Three consecutive defeats from Lyon (1:2), Marseille (0:2) and Rennes (0:5) dropped Auxerre to the fourteenth line of the standings with seven points in the asset and a goal difference of 7:16. It should be noted that before that, the Burgundians looked much better in duels with less status Montpellier (2:1) and Strasbourg (1:0).

Lorient at the start of the campaign surprise even more - having scored 16 points with goal statistics of 14:11, they are only three points behind the leaders. In the previous five meetings, Les Merlus were stronger than Clermont (2:1), Ajaccio (1:0), Lyon (3:1) and Nantes (3:2), while losing 2:5 to Lens.

As for us, Lorient do not plan to slow down, while Auxerre are also interested in scoring points. We predict open football, where both teams will have good chances to score a goal.
