Auxerre vs Nice Tips and Prediction
Furlan, the former head coach of Auxerre, would not leave his position without making a statement, but this one saw him give the middle finger to Clermont supporters after their team lost 2-1 to Les Lanciers in gameweek 10.
Grejohn Kyei provided the assist for Saif-Eddine Khaoui to score the game’s first goal in a pivotal three minutes. Before the hour mark, Grejohn Kyei scored himself with a beautiful long-range shot, and Jubal added a late consolation goal for Auxerre.
Furlan, 64, admitted that he did not regret his actions before cleaning out his office. Furlan struggled to maintain composure as he insulted the home crowd toward the end of the game, receiving a red card and the sack for his troubles.
With only eight points, Auxerre currently sits in 16th place in Ligue 1 and is separated from Angers in the tense relegation zone only by goal differential. Michel Padovani will now take interim control of the team.
AJA have lost five of their last six games in Ligue 1 after winning seven points in their first four games. Padovani must be ready for a baptism of fire in his first game as interim head coach as a result.
Furlan has been terminated by the Auxerre board, but Nice is sticking with Lucien Favre. However, the 64-year-job old’s security is in jeopardy due to Arjan Peco’s departure as well as yet another setback for Europe.
The 10 men of Les Aiglons lost 2-1 at home to Slovacko in Europa Conference League Group D after making last week’s 3-2 victory over Troyes more difficult than it needed to be. Petr Reinberk and Michal Tomic scored either side of Jean-Clair Todibo’s red card to cancel out Sofiane Diop’s opening goal.
Being three points behind Partizan in second place and only having 11 points in Ligue 1 puts Nice in 13th position in the standings, nine spots outside the top five, Favre acknowledged that Thursday’s defeat was “extremely hard to absorb.”
In a particularly difficult stretch, Favre has overseen just two victories from Les Aiglons’ last six games across all competitions. However, a trip to managerless Auxerre presents a great opportunity for Les Aiglons to turn things around against unfamiliar opponents.
Auxerre and Nice haven’t faced off since Les Aiglons won 3-2 in the third round of the 2018–19 Coupe de la Ligue, and they haven’t shared the victory since the 2006–07 campaign, when they drew both games.
The confidence level of Nice isn’t exactly at its highest right now, but Dante’s ban ought to compel Favre to field a more attack-minded lineup this weekend, perhaps with the Andy Delort-Gaetan Laborde partnership being revived.
The new manager bounce would be well received by Auxerre supporters right now, but it is hard to imagine the hosts putting the inexperienced Aiglons backline under any real strain, and we believe the visitors will prevail.
