AJ Auxerre v FC Metz: Ligue 2 Preview – Week 33

Metz Auxerre

Auxerre had a great 2-0 win against Red Star a few weeks ago away from home which looked to have moved them back into the promotion race. However, back to back defeats to Bourg-en-Bresse and RC Lens appears to have ended any lingering hopes of a top three finish. The Burgundy outfit are nine points adrift of that spot now […]

Le Havre v Laval: Ligue 2 Preview – Week 32


Prior to the international break, Le Havre beat Tours 2-0. It was more of a workmanlike performance, but they got the job done and that’s all that matters at this stage of the season.

FC Sochaux: 2015/16 Ligue 2 Preview

Sochaux Preview

Coach: Olivier Echouafni Stadium: Stade Bonal Last Season: 10th in Ligue 2 DEFENCE Sochaux have lost GK Yohann Pele to OM which is a blow because he was quite impressive last season.
