Rennes vs Auxerre Tips and Prediction
Bruno Genesio, the head coach of Rennes, understandably wanted to give some of his young stars a taste of European competition against Larnaca, but the 56-year-old was compelled to field a stronger squad than he had preferred because of school examinations.
The Cypriot giants were on the verge of salvaging a point after Oier Sanjurjo overturned Arthur Theate’s first goal, but right-back Lorenz Assignon came off the bench to score the game-winning goal for Rennes four minutes into the second half’s added time.
Next week, Rennes will play a difficult match against Fenerbahce in Group B, but for the time being, Genesio is concentrating on turning around his team’s erratic Ligue 1 fortunes after Les Rouges et Noir could only manage a 1-1 draw away to Troyes last weekend.
As of this writing, Rennes is mired in ninth place in the table after two victories, four draws, and two losses. In each of their last six meetings in all competitions, Les Rouges et Noir, both teams have scored.
Rennes’ defensive shortcomings thus far this season can be attributed in large part to the defensive reorganization that took place over the summer, but they have won both of their most recent Ligue 1 home games, and Auxerre now seems to have had a hard reality check in Ligue 1.
At the end of August, Auxerre briefly caused a stir in the top division by winning seven of nine games against Strasbourg, Montpellier HSC, and Angers. However, the newly promoted team was quickly shut down by Lyon and Marseille, losing to the latter 2-0 last weekend.
Gerson and Alexis Sanchez scored in front of the home crowd to hand Jean-Marc Furlan’s team their second loss of the year, but AJA can still be proud of how they have conducted themselves so far.
Auxerre has earned seven points from their first six games, moving them up to position 12 in the standings. Furlan’s team would certainly accept that spot at the end of the season, but the Ligue 1 rookies haven’t kept a clean sheet away from home since February.
Rennes and Auxerre haven’t faced off since the 2013–2014 Coupe de France; in that matchup, the weekend’s hosts prevailed by a score of 1-0; Les Rogues et Noir hope to extend their league winning streak against AJA to four games this weekend.
Auxerre have reportedly realized how challenging it is to compete in Ligue 1, and facing a Rennes team that is loaded with rested attacking alternatives should only lead to one result.
Auxerre’s frontline does not instill fear in the hearts of many opponents, thus Genesio’s team can also anticipate picking up a long-awaited clean sheet, and Furlan’s team should be doomed to a third consecutive loss.
